10 in 20 – Day 8 – End of Week One
It’s Day 8, but technically a week since I started this 10 in 20 thing and the first week results are…I’m down 5 pounds. Currently at 173lbs. Great work for a week, I’d say. But there’s no time to rest on any laurels because I’m only halfway there to my goal. And really, the larger goal will be to lose 10 more after that, so it’s not time to slack off! Although, as you’ll see, I did have a TINY treat today.
Losing so much my new WW Daily Goal is 36 points. I didn’t use ANY Flex Points last week. Going to try and do the same this week. Keep things on the right path.
Little blue today as I woke up to rain in Los Angeles. Blue because it puts a ‘damper’ on my afternoon runs. See, though I do have access to a gym, I really can’t get into running on treadmills. I just don’t like the feeling that I’m exerting all this energy and I’m going nowhere. So the rain mean no running. I mean, you COULD run in the rain, but why would you? Luckily, the rain burned off by the afternoon and I was able to get my run in! Hurray!
Okay, let’s get to the eats!
Portos Pan Con Bistec (Steak Sandwich), Plantains & Bottle of water – 15 WW Points*
This is an estimate as this exact item is not in the WW tracker. The individual items are though and I was able to piece it together. Also I over estimate the number of plantain chips just to be sure. Besides the salad I had last week, this is my other ‘go to’ at Portos. I love this sandwich. I will say the me that isn’t trying to lose pound would also add a potato ball (or two) to this as well. Potato Balls are Porto’s specialty. Fried balls of mashed potatoes with beef in the middle. They are amazing. I did work out the WW points once and it was something like 23 points per ball or something crazy like that. Makes you think twice.
Pretzel M&M – 4 WW Points
Here’s the treat! Pretzel M&Ms. Lowest points of the M&Ms products that I’ve tried (haven’t tried coconut, so I can’t say). Just a little ‘keep it up’ treat as I’ve felt I’ve been doing really good. I love, love, love peanut M&Ms. Really, very much but those are WAY too many points, especially when I’m trying to lose weight, so I went for the pretzels. Did a little audio editing. Chomped on some pretzel M&Ms. Good afternoon.
Banana – 0 WW Points
After those M&Ms it’s back to good healthy stuff so that’s back to bananas!
Activity – 30 Minutes Running
Now, the treats are over until next week. It’s time to focus more on making that final five. I’m not going to push myself to lose it all again in another 7 days, but I want to get close to make those last few days before the 20th a piece of cake. Mmmmmm cake.
Thanks again for all your support! I really do appreciate it.
