Quest For My Pretty - Weekly Weight Loss Report

Sorry for my lack of posting lately. I am having some trouble keeping up a one a day schedule right now, mostly due to fatigue. Since it's just me here at Pretty in Dayton, I hope you understand.

What has been zapping my energy? Well, aside from my husband's random 1:30 am runs to work (WTF?), I've been focusing my energy on learning everything I possibly can about the Insanity Elite Nutrition Guide. I'm having a heck of a time trying to fit in 5 mini meals a day, make them mini meals, and have the meals come out 20% fat, 40% carbohydrate, and 40% protein. In fact, even following the guide, somehow my calories are switched, I'm coming out with a nutrient intake of 40% fat, 40% carbohydrate, and 20% protein. That's... a little backwards. But I'm only on Day 3 of eating using this guide so I'm not expecting to get it right the first time.

The crazy thing - I just upped my calorie intake by about 500 calories. We'll see if my body can handle the fuel. So if you see some crazy things going on with my weight in the next few weeks, that's why.

Weight:  156.0 (-0.2 lbs)

I consider this maintaining. After a weekend of brother-in-law and nephew-in-law, and starting a new eating program I'm totally fine with maintaining. I hope eventually the weight melts right off but hey... Shaun T has only had me for a few short days, right?

Incidentally, I found an excellent resource on how to handle the Insanity Elite Nutrition guide. These videos are put together by a different Beachbody coach, but you know what? I appreciate their resources just as much as any person would going through this for the first time. Take a look and get inspired!
