Weigh in: 129.8 lb
What a stall, but at least I didn’t go up in weight. We are officially one month away until vacation, and I’ve gotta lose this pudge. It’s pretty frustrating when 1) I see no change in myself and 2) I throw away a week of clean eating by drinking excess calories on a night out. One night and I’ve got a stall.
I’ve got a pretty long lady cycle that I should be coming to the end of, and I feel like that (as well as the cheese and crackers) have got me bloated beyond belief.
(It’s probably the cheese and crackers.)
Hopefully, once my uterine lining sloughs itself off, I’ll actually see some real progress. Last time, I lost 4 lovely pounds.
As for this week’s win: I actually made it to the gym and pushed myself extra hard by adding weights to the benchpress. I usually do empty bar, but I huffed and puffed and was sore all over for the next few days. Gotta get strong arms to fly my first kite in California!
I’m gonna call this stuff Lime Salt because that’s basically what it is. Introduced to me by my friend, Davindra (@1goatroti), I’ve become obsessed with this stuff. It’s super easy to make.
- Zest a few limes.
- Spread the lime zest out on a plate for it to dry out overnight.
- Crush the dried lime zest in with about 1.5x the amount in salt.
- Cut up some thai chili peppers.
I use this as a dip for strips green mangos as a low-cal snack. It’s sour, tangy, salty, spicy, and it takes me about 40 minutes of mindless eating for me to finish a half a mango. Super yummy! Though the salt is probably adding to my bloat as well. Perhaps I will increase my water intake further and just pee out the weight. A girl can dream!
