I apologize for the lack of update yesterday. I was so exhausted after my high workout on Tuesday night that I went straight to bed. Then work was super busy yesterday. Although, it turns out to be a good thing because today's post is so much better!! No one really wanted to hear me complain about running, right?
Last night, I weighed and measured with Ms. All-star! OMG I f'n rocked those measurements! I've had great months before but nothing close to this one! I remember in the very beginning losing 10lbs and being super excited! Well this month has superseded that excitement by a 100%. I weighed 240 (why can't all scales read the same). I've lost 17lbs of fat and gained a 1lb of muscle! There is a 1-inch difference in chest, waist and hips!! I can't remember neck, thigh and arm. I gained a 1/2-inch on my calves. Woo hoo!
It is nice to know that all the effort has been worth it. I know some days that working out was the last thing I wanted to do but I did it. I figured something was better than nothing. I am sure Ms. AS has wanted to strangle me when telling me to push and keep going. All the hard work has paid off though! We have a long way to go but we are off to a great start!
My eating this week has been erratic. I am not sure how nice the scale will be to be on Saturday. I've been under on points/calories. I also haven't been hungry. I am eating because I know I should but not enjoying it. I've only really cooked once and that needs to change. I did make a super yummy veggie:
Roasted Fennel with Asiago
1 large Fennel bulb or 2 medium ones
2 Tbsp Asiago cheese
2 Tbsp Olive oil
1/8 tsp salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400. Cut the fennel bulb into slices. Place fennel, oil, salt and pepper into a Ziploc bag to mix up ingredients. Roast on a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan for 12 min. Mix in the cheese and bake for an additional 12 min or until tender.
I have never had fennel and it smelled so good roasting. It tasted good too! Make sure you get the slices tender those are much better than the crispy pieces! I served with stuffed chicken breast (already prepared). Enjoy!
