This week I spent a few days out of town in Asheville, North Carolina at a blogging conference. I brought along healthy snacks (including fresh fruits and vegetables) to snack on during the car rides. While at the conference we were fed breakfast and lunch. I was both surprised and excited that there were many healthy options to choose from. For breakfast I ended up eating scrambled eggs and fruit. Lunches varied but one day there was a chicken and cabbage wrap which tasted better than I thought it would. I tried to eat as healthy as I could at breakfast and lunch because I knew I would be going out to dinner at some delicious restaurants so I wanted to save the calories for those foods. My dinners included seafood, tapas, and a salad with chicken and apples. I ended up turning down some heavenly sounding food including bacon wrapped scallops covered with maple syrup.
I ended up losing weight this week, two pounds to be exact! Even better? I am at the lowest weight I’ve been so far during this challenge- 186.6! That is a total of 5 pounds lost since I started in May. My BMI is currently 30.1 which is .1 away from my goal BMI.
