So color me confused, but after a really sucky week last week in which I indulged (a lot), barely tracked, and in general, just took a, "Well, I've already had x, y, z, so I may as well have q, too" attitude, I... lost weight.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining LOL. But I'm just really shocked.
The only thing I can think of is that I've been doing 3x/week weight workouts for a few weeks now and maybe I've started to build enough muscle that my metabolism really is starting to fire back up again? I don't really know--and quite frankly, I don't know if it'll even last, because I've seen this story before, right before a weight gain the following week LOL--but I'll take it.
I did decide to re-up with WW. I had let my online membership lapse, but I've signed back up again and am recommitting to really following it and doing an honest assessment--meaning using up my weekly points if I have to, eating all of my AP, etc. Enough with trying to game the system, which I found myself doing a lot. Hopefully I can carry on with this weight loss, but if nothing else, I'll be recommitting to the healthy habits again, after falling off the wagon last week.
And random discovery of the week: on a whim, I bought the Trader Joe's brand of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and it is THE BEST ALMOND MILK I've ever tried! Yum!! Unsweetened almond milk tends to taste chalky to me, and when I do have the sweetened kind, I'd always get this weird after taste that I just didn't care for. But this one was not too sweet, didn't have the after taste, and has a nice, subtle vanilla flavor that brings a nice sweetness. The Blue Diamond unsweetened vanilla one didn't seem to have a vanilla flavor to it, which is why I never really liked it. This? Different story. Yum.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner.
