Result

My weight this morning was 152.7 lbs, so I managed to lose 1.3 lbs my first week. I rested two days and felt so much better after each day, so I definitely see why Jillian Michaels recommends that. I felt much more equipped to continue after the rest days instead of burning myself out. I didn’t take Mimi for any walks sadly, mostly because she still doesn’t have a proper collar and I got busy all the time.

Bottom line is that I met my goal for the week and am happy with my small progress so far. I think I like reporting on after-progress rather than planning meals for the week and not following through. You can view my bentos on Adventures in Bentomaking with the links above.
