Weigh-In #21 & Weekly Review

If you haven't noticed, I'm doing a late weigh-in and an early review. Why? Well, I am going out of town tomorrow morning and it will span a few days.

Ok, on to the weigh-in... it was not good and I don't really know why...

Previous Weight: 196.2
Current Weight: 198.2
Gain = +2 lbs

I have no clue what happened here. Maybe it is water weight...? I've been tracking and eating well under my maintain weight calories all week. I guess we'll see what that scale says next week.

I made a couple pretty great meals this week and I wanted to share them with you all. 

First, I used my slow cooker to create a dish I call Mexican Chicken.

It is chicken thighs, red and green bell peppers, onion, garlic, salsa, and spices stewed for several hours. Served on rice with cheese, greek yogurt and chives. It was delicious!

Next, I tried my hand at Panzanella or bread salad.

This is broiled bread chopped up and tossed in a salad of lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, garlic, and cucumber. This dressing was EVOO, lemon juice, and some mulled tomato. Very yummy and a good way to use up stale bread. 

Now for last week's goals:
1) Track everyday- done!
2) Exercise- didn't get it all in this week.
3) Eating out healthily- done- most of the time I took lunch to work/workshops- lots of fruit this week

Next Week's Goals:
1) Track Everyday
2) Get at least 10 minutes of exercise in everyday
3) Be mindful of eating while on vacation! Don't go overboard- exchange a light lunch for a heavy dinner and visa versa.

I will leave you with a photo of what my cat did to my blinds. Damn cat.

Have a good week! Talk to you after Wednesday!


  1. I'm no fan of salad ( what a surprise hey!) but that salad looks really appealing.!
    Hope your trip goes well, keep doing all the right things and the numbers will come good

  2. Good luck with your trip! The meal looks delicious.

  3. Those recipes look yummy! Don't worry about the gain, it probably is water weight. When you keep making healthy choices the numbers will follow. Enjoy your trip!
