So after this week's screw up with the French fries and potato chips (and a candy bar later, because I was having massive carb cravings too), I figured this week would not be kind to me on the scale. I am doing my weigh in a day early because I'll be busy tomorrow morning. This morning the scale says 240 pounds, down one pound from last week. I was really glad to see that!
I credit this to my stopping with the poor eating behavior as soon as I realized what was happening, and not letting it turn into a whole bad day, or week, or month. I do feel good about that part. I did not reintroduce anything new this week and have been sticking with the AIP + all spices + cocoa + dairy + eggs. I am being moderate with the eggs and dairy.
I counted calories three days this week and averaged 1323/day. I am sure I ate higher calories on the days I didn't track. I walked 3.1 miles for exercise this week and am feeling really good! Been busy and finding it hard to fit in more walking, but will keep on trying to walk whenever I can.
Stuff I am eating:
Thick steaks cooked in avocado oil with sliced onions and cubed butternut squash
Teriyaki-style chicken thighs (made with the sauce recipe from here), mashed cauliflower, Brussels sprouts
Ribeye steak with sauteed kale and butternut squash
Pork chops seasoned with herbs and sauteed with sweet onions and a baked white sweet potato with ghee (this was so delicious).
Breakfast hash with AIP sausage, bacon, kale, onions, yellow squash, and white sweet potatoes cooked in avocado oil
Well the weight loss is coming along pretty slowly (a pound a week on average over the past 2 months) and I am hoping April will be a little better since I am increasing my activity and feel like eating less in the spring and summer, plus the Farmer's Market will be overflowing with good, healthy produce soon! I can't wait!
