August was an extremely tough month for me and resulted in a 4-pound weight gain. Gaining weight for the first time in 8 months was a tough pill to swallow but it also taught me a lot of valuable lessons. Let’s take a look at the numbers before we get into the lessons.
I hit my weight loss goal for July and surpassed a huge milestone. But, I also made a rookie mistake that set back my progress, didn’t hit my workout goal number and didn’t hit my alcoholic beverage goal. Let’s take a look at the numbers first.
One of the biggest game changers for me has been finding a sweet satisfying healthy snack that I can eat at night, but doesn't have a lot of calories.
I've found a delicious smoothie to be the perfect solution. One of my favorite smoothies to make is a Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Delight.
The best part? You can make it in less than 5 minutes and it’s under 350 calories for a 20 oz. serving (not one of those small impractical 8 oz. ones).
June was a huge win. I lost 7.4 pounds exceeding my goal of 5, but I worked out less than last month AND didn’t eat as cleanly.
I worked out 20 times. I did not achieve the alcoholic beverage goal (again). This time by a lot. I ending up consuming twice as many drinks as I wanted to. Let’s take a look at the numbers first.
