285.8 - Weekly Report

Woo Hoo! 285.8 this morning, only 35.8 pounds away from reaching my first major goal! This brings my total to -174.2 pounds. I am so excited, this week was definitely kind to me, I was only expecting about a 1.8 pound loss. I am not going to question it though, my mamma taught me to never question a blessing, just accept and appreciate it!

This week was a good week all in all, though I feel a little like I have lacked motivation, at least for exercise. I am glad that it was not reflected in my weight loss. I need to dig deep again and find the motivation I had for Zumba. I have decided to take on the 5 day challenge again, alternating between Zumba and calisthenics. I will begin this on Monday. I am proud of how the 4th of July celebration at the park went though. I had planned out my menu the night before. It was really hard watching everyone walk around with nachos, cotton candy, fries, kettle corn, and stuff like that. But I did it, I stayed at the park for nearly 12 hours and only ate what I had planned. The fireworks were amazing, and we had fun hanging out.

I promised another recipe, we fixed it up last night, and it was really good... Here's what we had:

Chili Garlic Glazed Salmon
This whole meal under 200 calories and very filling!


  1. Congratulations on a great weigh in!!
    That looks yummers :)
    I know it can be so hard when everyone around is eating junk but it is so worth staying on plan!!
    Have a great weekend

  2. Wow! That took a lot of self control! Good for you! I decided that I hate counting calories but I love making lists, so I have begun to plan out my meals ahead of time so I don't have to think about what I am eating through out the day. I just have to look at my list. That is how I lost weight before I got pregnant and gained it all back plus some. Reading your post has strengthened my confidence that this will work out better for me. :o) Good job Brandie! You are amazing!!
