Over 50 and Pandemic Weight Loss Diary Day 3



Ok, so I woke up to THIS:

THAT’S ONE WHOLE POUND LOST OVERNIGHT!! HOLY SMOKES!!!

I honestly do not know what I weighed prior to day 1. I was too scared to weigh until day 2. I am no longer fearful of weigh-ins.

I need to do some before/after pics soon and keep regular track of the progress. Another person recommended that I also measure my inches lost.

I was late for my second fueling due to a visit from the plumber. The water heater went out.
I am much more tired today, but I didn’t sleep well. I haven’t in a while. My dad was exposed to Covid the other day and now I am having severe anxiety… this is in addition to the other hellish illnesses and deaths happening all around me.

I am also noticing an increase in crankiness, which isn’t abnormal when I begin a new program. At least I am not fasting. I am not pleasant during fasts AT ALL. Hangry is a real thing, folks… but I am not noticeably hungry. I don’t have as much energy today- probably not from Optavia, but because of insomnia and little sleep the night before.

**UPDATE: Maisie is NAPPING, which is unheard of unless sick. I hope we weren’t exposed to anything 😦

By 11 pm, I was FAMISHED AND READY for my Lean and Green Meal. It was fantastic and I could eat seafood daily. Happy tummy. I actually prefer it to chicken breasts.

I didn’t get as many steps today as last week, but I am ok with this.

Day 3
14k steps
43 min cardio

80 oz or more of water

10:47 am- 1st fueling: CARAMEL DELIGHT CRISP BAR (still just ok. I won’t order next month)
2:00 pm- 2nd fueling: DOUBLE PEANUT BUTTER BAR (will order again, so far my fave)
4:30 pm- 3rd fueling: DECADENT CHOCOLATE BROWNIE w/ 1 tbsp light cream cheese in batter (made in a mini waffle maker) (THIS IS SO GOOD. SO good- and I am not actually into sweets or chocolate- think I went over condiment allowance with this, though. Will not use cream cheese next time.)
6:30 pm- 4th fueling: HONEY MUSTARD & ONION STICKS (because I was too tired to do anything else and they remind me of those Snyder’s Pretzels)
8:45 pm- 5th fueling: RUSTIC PENNE (reminder to self: ORDER MORE, because I love it more today than yesterday. It’s awesome.)
11:00 pm- Lean and Green meal: Shrimp Salad with Avocado and Mushrooms and Greek Vinaigrette

These lean and green meals are huge
