June 4th I weighed in at 128.1, so I haven't been the best these last few days so I am back up a little. The hardest part is the starch. It is hard to find one that fits being low calorie and whole wheat, etc. The other hard part lately is getting vegetables to 4 cups a day. Yesterday I had a buffalo wrap from Target for lunch, then we had Taco Johns for dinner so I had a chicken salad. I ended up eating the shell. Not sure why. I didn't wanted to but wanted to at the same time. I would have been better off not, but I think this is how I learn. About a month back I tried to drink a diet pop, and could only finish half the can. Now I know that pop just isn't as good as it once was to me. As you can see in Adapt the weight loss has slowed a lot for me but hopefully next week will be a good week. I'm trying to keep up with exercise but we are still working on the basement. Just floors, doors and trim are left. Hopefully we have great progress this weekend. We have been busy the last two days with baseball, tonight is finally a night without anything but it is our 7 year anniversary. No set plans, but we will see. Lots of changes at work are also going on, but at least the kids are out of school so less homework and having to wake kids, make lunches, and so forth. My goal is to make my goal by the end of the month and I think it is doable. Twenty-three days to lose 5 lbs. A little over .2 lbs a day or 1.4 lbs a week. Definitely need to work on my starches, especially if they move me to Adapt 2 and 3. I think I'm going to start tracking calories on MyFitness pal again to ensure I exercise to keep calories in low. I have a coach session tomorrow so I'm most likely going to move to Adapt 2 then.

Profile pancake with PB2 and WF jelly, looks gross but not too bad. 
The goal is to be 130 lbs or less by tomorrow. Then I hope to be to goal by the end of June. The only thing that might deter my goal is I have a week long mission trip to go on in MN. It will be a decent workout, but I also don't have much control over my food. I could bring profile products, but we stay at a school so I have no way to keep vegetables on hand. Most of the food is like the school lunch programs kids have, which is only semi healthy. Plus there is always treats galore!

May 25th I weighed in at 130.10, but staying on plan has been harder. Not sure if is due to adding starches and fruit or if it is being  closer to my goal, I'm just loosing momentum or what. In Adapt 1 I really need to be working out to lose the weight, and sometimes it is hard. We are still working on our basement, kids are in school, I work, then there are normal chores. It is hard to stay on top of all of this but I'm still happy with my progress so far.

I also have a work trip this week which is going to challenge me, but I hope to exercise and not go too far off the plan. I probably could have moved to Adapt 2, but I wanted to hold off since I feel like I'm not doing the best on Adapt 1. It will probably next week when I change it up.

Profile by Sanford Week 18 - Adapt Week 2

Current weight 131.4. I lost another .4 lbs. I have been going off  plan , eating some sweets and I had a drink during Mother's Day. I was actually up more than this after the weekend, but I was able to get down due to going back on plan. That makes me feel optimistic that I can do this longer than just when I'm getting coached. I just have to keep on track and not let it go over a 5 lb gain. I know I need to increase my exercising, and I am working on that. I have been doing 30 burpees a day, spread out by doing 10 before work and then 2 other sets of 10 before bed. I already feel myself getting stronger. I am going to make sure I have an upcoming appointment to get measured. We have less things scheduled coming up. I think I can stick to plan more till the end of the month. I'm looking forward to  my results next week, I hope to be down a whole pound. Once I loose another 1-2 pounds I can move to Adapt 2.

This week I only lost half a pound, but I will take it because I thought I would have been up. This was a hard week. I ate potato chips! Too many potato chips. Here is what I ate this past week -

Breakfast - Profile cereal with unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and fruit (apple, kiwi or banana)

Snacks - bars, variety pack, Profile MR, cucumbers, cheese sticks

Lunch - carnitas with 1 corn tortilla, cheese and tomato
fresh caught fish cooked in lemon and garlic with steamed veggies x2, cheese stick
lunch meat ham with spinach, cheese wrapped in a spinach wrap
BK club salad with yogurt dressing

Dinner - carnitas, spinach cheese and chips
carnitas and salad
egg roll in a bowl
chicken, potato, green beans with bacon, and string cheese
1/2 English muffin with ham and cheese
chicken and steamed veggies with cheese

I only over did the starches when I had the potato chips, otherwise the dinner I had potato was the day I had fish and veggies for lunch. I definitely need to get more veggies in during the week.

This weekend is going to be busy as well. I'm going camping, I have to get back for Sunday school, we have lots of practice for violin and baseball. I took today off (Friday) for field day and my Profile appointment, but I still have a lot to do.

Next week I'm working on eating more veggies and staying on track. I also want to exercise more, but getting up early isn't working out, I don't take time during lunch, and we have been too busy at night.

Eight pounds from goal. I have been moved to Adapt 1. It is a little over whelming. Today was day 1 and I am nervous about the slow down of weight loss. I did not get in my 2nd MR. I had already brushed my teeth and it was 9pm. I tried to do some run/walk on the treadmill and I have the 30 day calendar workout I also did today. I had an apple for breakfast and some potatoes for dinner as my starch. I had some lunch meat ham on romaine with mustard for lunch, since this has also changed up with Adapt 1.

I also went to the store and I got some popcorn, english muffins for other days. It was hard to find pretzels and crackers that I found fit with the Exchange List, so I didn't buy any this week. I want to work more at adding fish at least twice a week. I need to really focus and plan more for next week. I have decided to make sure to not go out of town this month, except for an overnight with cub scouts for 1 night which isn't too far away.

This week I am documenting what I am eating with my print out given by my coach. I will update all my Adapt 1 eating on next weeks post. Here is to a successful week for all!

Obviously I didn't blog last week. We went out of town for Easter and then again the following week. Add in baseball, violin, housework, and work.

Even with going out of town I have been able to lose weight. I didn't drink. I tried to eat all my profile products. I didn't eat anything (that I know of) that wasn't on the list for Reboot. Easter I ate too many deviled eggs. 
This last weekend I ate two McDonalds side salad with Profile Ceasar dressing that I had in a cooler while my husband ate a Big Mac meal with Dr Pepper and the kids had chicken nuggets. Why hasn't McDonalds gotten the soda machine like Wendy's? I could care less if any size drinks are a dollar because they no longer have lemonade. My kids never know what to get and my daughter hates Hi-C. She ended up getting water because my kids are not used to pop, since we rarely let them have it. But they are at a point where the milk or juice is too small, it is one gulp for them. Ahhhh, I digress. 
Saturday my husband's family got together, but it wasn't anything I have never had before so I wasn't tempted. I had a salad with southwest chicken that I found at Aldi. We also went to play a the park which was a lot of fun because they have big slides and I had no fear of getting stuck in the tunnel.
Sunday we went to ikea first thing in the morning. They have a breakfast of eggs, sausage, and potatoes. I got this and just tried a small potato just to see if it was awesome and it wasn't. I gave them to my husband. I also tried Schweppes Lemon Lime Sparkling water and it tasted great. This might be my go to drink. I'm not a big fan of blue Powerade Zero and that seems to be all gas stations have. I also got pork rinds based on the fat, but after I got them I read it was based on 9 pieces or 5 serving of this not so big bag. I had a few then took a nap the rest of the way home.

It is a little frustrating being so close to moving to Adapt. I was frustrated with my two weeks of .9 lb lost, and these last two weeks have been good. I should be there next week for sure. I have been craving things off plan even more lately, I don't know how people stay on Reboot for a whole year. Mostly I have been eating more on plan items, like 4 fats a day or 6 oz of protein. I know I shouldn't but I caved. I didn't beat myself up. I just moved on. My coaching session isn't until tomorrow night so I still have one more day I can weigh in to see how close I am.

Two weeks in a row I have only lost .9 lb each week. I don't think the 5 low/2 high carb works, at least for me and how I weigh in. Saturday I am always down, then Wed weigh in I am up. I think it is better to be more consistent otherwise I am blaming working out. I talk to my coach tomorrow and we will see what they say. I have been sticking to the Profile plan. It maybe too that I am getting closer to goal.

I am almost done with the 30 day thigh challenge so I want to start another workout series. I have selected one from 'The Other Home Gym'. It has a nice start and will help me progress too.

For Easter I need to buy the ham, but not sure if I will eat it. I will bring some roasted vegetables, and some salad to eat while I am there. I'm just going to load up on cucumbers, celery like I have been to stop from eating all the treats and junk. Part of me wants to go to the next step and the other half is worried since I think it will slow down my weight loss, but I have also seen where others lose more on the Adapt phase. Only time will tell.
