Weight Loss: Month 2
Wow friends. I lost a whole half a pound last month and not pleased. The month of August started with a trip to Newport (mentioned here), followed by a trip to Alabama, and ending with a staycation here in Boston. I was chatting with my mom and I already know my downfall... vacations and socializing. If I step outside of my healthy little Monday - Thursday routine, I really struggle with healthy options. Even with portion control in Newport, working out for Bojangles in Alabama, and sweating every single day leading up to our staycation with friends and family... I was only able to maintain the 3.5 pounds I lost in July and lose another 0.5 a pound, totaling 4 pounds so far on this journey. I have to step up my game!
So, what am I doing to make a major dent in my weight loss during September? I'm cutting way back on my "non-water" beverages. I'm a sucker for chai teas, hot chocolate, wine - aka sugar, sugar sugar! I found a place in Quincy called Coffee Break Cafe that makes an amazing Iced Chai Latte with almond milk, so when I do partake in a treat it's a little bit better. I'm also wearing athleisure as much as possible (see above) since I HAVE to work out if I put it on. It's not just for looks people. ;) I'm currently crushing on these sneakers, these leggings (I purchased a similar pair), and this sports bra (on sale!).
Thanks for following along! As you can probably tell, I'll be posting these "weight loss posts" on a monthly basis. The weekly posts started to feel extremely repetitive. I always aim for my blog to have a mix of content and didn't want the subject of weight loss to take over. Until next time - xoxo!
