Weigh-in: 129.8 lb
I actually think the only time I’ve put this outfit on in the last three weeks is to take these photos. Every morning, I wake up to my workout alarm and say, “Not today, Gym. Not today.” In order for me to get to the gym by 6 (in time for a 1-hour workout), I have to be in bed by 9:30. There simply isn’t enough time in the day. I’ve got to figure out a better plan. It’s frustrating to see results on the scale but not in photos, but I do blame myself for that for not going to the gym. These muscles aren’t going to grow themselves, and I’ve really got to kick my own butt because vacation is in 36 days!
This week was actually great. I ate chicken and brussel sprouts for lunch most of the week, and on Friday, I was actually down to 127 lb. It’s the weekends that are killing me. Saturday was Valentine’s Day and boyfriend took me out to sushi buffet. I did my best to stick to just sashimi and proteins. Sunday, we had breakfast with his parents. Filipino food is especially full of sugars and fats and gluten. Sunday night, I worked the inventory shift at my retail gig, which means the company provided us dinner — pizza and candy.
This is what I try to do every week when prepping my meals. I basically buy some chicken breast (10$ for 5 breasts at WalMart) and bake them with different flavours, to make eating chicken breast during the week not seem so stale. The two on the top left have salt & pepper, basil, thyme, oregano, and hot sauce on them. Top two on the right are stuffed with mozzarella cheese, with tomato paste, oregano, basil, and salt and pepper to make some pizza chicken. The lonely one on the bottom is spread with Keen’s Hot Mustard with some shallots on top because my house has no onions. Bake them in a 375 degree oven for 25 minutes.
I pair these breasts with whatever veggies I fancy having. This week is sugar snap peas from Costco. They are SO good. Veggies get roasted in the oven at the same time with just some salt and pepper, and a tiny bit of olive oil if I feel like it. Don’t EVOO the sugar snap peas. Do put it on broccoli.
