Let's Get Waist-ed: Week 8

Last week's weight:  146.4
This week's weight:  146.4
Weekly weight lost:  -0.0
Total weight loss:  -6.0

So there was no weight loss this past week.  And there was no whole30 begun.  When I really started to look into the "paleo" diet, I realized that it was restricting A LOT of foods.  And with lots of restrictions come lots of failures and beating myself up about falling off the wagon.  I had also read a couple of articles that actually say that it's very easy to take the unhealthy road (meaning lots of meats -- a.k.a. very Atkins-ish).


So my new plan is next week, I'm beginning an exercise routine.  I'm going to begin P90x on Monday.  I have tried that program once before.  I only completed two weeks of it before the train derailed, but I had lost a notch on my belt in that two weeks.  It was before I had kids and I was working full-time, completing the program in the evening when I got home from work.  My goal this time is to get my work-out in first thing in the morning, so I have no excuses.

I am also going to cut out a lot of my sugar intake.  I'm not going to cut it out completley.  I need my sugar in my coffee (as I don't use creamer), I take my coffee black with a teaspoon of sugar.  But I'll be cutting back on the amount of sugar that I use.  Also, there is sugar in beer and I don't know if I want to give up my daily pumpkin beer (of lately).  So I am going to use my old rule -- no food that contains sugar in the first three ingredients.

Wish me luck!
