Saturday Weigh In - 07/07

Ok, yes, it is technically Sunday - but better late than never! 

I struggled this week... I didn't eat nearly enough most days and it wasn't without consequences.  Thankfully making good food choices isn't a problem - however I have difficulty finding the right balance of how much to eat while I increase my exercise.  My weight loss inevitably stalls when I don't eat enough - yet I've become accustomed and comfortable with how much I've been eating.  It is hard for me to eat more when I truly don't feel hungry.  I tried increasing my portions a little (for instance 1/2 cup of cottage cheese instead of 1/4 cup, 1 oz. of "veggie" chips instead of 1/2 oz., or 1 1/2 cups fresh fruit instead of 1 cup) - but it still isn't enough.  It's definitely something I need to work on this week. 

Exercise was great this week although I had switch my workout on Thursday to Friday (my usual day off) because the kids were really sick and hubby was fasting so my entire schedule was off that day.  Here's the wrap-up for my exercise week:

Saturday - DAY OFF
Sunday - Zumba (75 minutes)
Monday - 8 mile run (personal best both distance and time!)
Tuesday - 2.5 mile run / 2.5 mile walk
Wednesday - 12.23 mile bike ride (which turned out to be a bad idea)
Thursday - DAY OFF
Friday - 3 mile run / 2.25 mile walk
