It's Thursday! Time to check in with my scale and my friends! ;) Excited to also share my new FAVORITE post-workout snack, and hopefully a dash of encouragement too!
I've dropped 3 more pounds since last week! I'm currently only one pound shy of waving 10% of my total (starting) body weight goodbye! It's a wonderfully exciting feeling!
Delicious Way to Shrink:
This is my new favorite post-workout pick me up!
Ingredients (per serving):
1 teaspoon Peanut Butter
Steps to Yum:
1. Cut half a banana into 7 slices.
2. Place a dab of peanut butter on each banana slice.
3. Top each with an almond.
One serving (everything shown in the photo above) is just 138 calories!
Remember that every food choice you make can either help or hinder you in your journey towards gaining/maintaining a healthful lifestyle! This satisfying snack will sure make you feel a whole lot better than 11 Doritos chips at 140 calories would!
Tip of the Week:
Are you drinking enough water? Try filling a 2-Liter bottle with water and storing it in your refrigerator. This will help you keep track of exactly how much you're getting and you'll always have some cold and ready for you! I started doing this last week and didn't allow myself to drink any lemonade or my fave diet soda until after I've drank the amount of water my body needs for the day. I have never been a big water drinker and have found this to be really helpful! If you struggle with drinking enough H2O you may want to give this a try too. You'll feel so much better when you're hydrated. I know I do!
REMINDER: My comments section is officially a CHEERING SECTION on Thursdays! Let's cheer each other on, friends! I'd love to hear how you're doing too! Struggles, triumphs, things you've found helpful...feel free to share! The interactions I've had with each of you who've sent me comments/messages have served as an incredible inspiration and encouragement! THANK YOU!!!
