Week 2 Recap (from my Tight Curves blog)

Sunday's weigh in was disappointing - no weight loss to report. This weigh-in reminds me of the "dreaded week 2" on The Biggest Loser when contestants are expected to have very little weight loss or to even have gained weight. I know my body has to get used to the changes that I'm incorporating. Instead of cooperating with the changes, my body's asking what's going on and tries to remain status quo... eh, just more excuses...

Looking back on this second week, I have found ways to improve my weight loss goals...

- Now that my group project meetings are scheduled for the next 2 weeks, I have designated Monday and Wednesday nights as cooking and food prepping nights. I need to have those snacks and meals with me as I go from work to school to the gym.

- Work has been super stressful. I've transitioned full-time into an Engagement Management role at work, which involves lots of driving around to client sites and lunch with clients. Lunch with clients isn't bad. Usually we take them out to pretty decent places, which I am noticing have excellent healthy options such as grilled white fish and salads with balsamic and vinegar based dressing. Again, having the prepared snacks and Top Secret should help out with not snacking on breads and appetizers.

- In general, I need to take time out to relax. Running around from one stressful situation to another isn't helping my mental sanity. I've decided to leave the office this week during lunchtimes to get away from everything. I need to give myself time to breathe and put together my thoughts.
