I'm going to toot my own horn here for a second because I have officiallly lost 19 POUNDS!
This, to me, is so exciting and a little bit crazy!
I'm right on the verge of breaking into 20-something weight loss and I cannot wait until I hit that milestone! I still have a ways to go, but I am so happy with how things have been going so far that I'm just loving the journey I've started!
This morning I made "cottage cheese pancakes" for breakfast and as weird as they sound they were actually really good! I've been eating a lot of egg whites and oatmeal for breakfast lately, and today I was just not.in.the.mood for either of those. So, I did a quick google search for clean eating breakfast options and when I saw those I figured I'd try them out!
The recipe I used called for:
whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, egg whites, cinnamon, a dash of salt, cottage cheese and yogurt.
Luckily I had all those things in my pantry (well, besides the egg whites of course. Those were in eggs, in the fridge). I cut the recipe down a bunch since it was just me eating them, and ended up making three mini pancakes that I ate while also munching on some grapes.
Yum yum yum!
I was definitely a happy camper this morning!
Now when I'm able to lose one more pound I will be able to cross another item off my "101 in 1001" goal sheet, and 5 pounds after that I'll be able to give myself my first mini-reward!
When I first started Goal of 70 I set weightloss goals with mini rewards I would get/do for each one!
After 25 pounds I'm buying myself Midnight in Paris.
After 40 pounds Jake and I, along with whoever else of our friends/family wants to join, are going to stay overnight at the casino.
After 50 pounds I'm going to go clothes shopping!
And after 70 pounds Jake and I are going to get new professional pictures taken. I wasn't very happy with how my engagement pictures turned out, so this will be really exciting when we get them taken!
Did anyone else watch The Biggest Loser last night?! I thought it was so much fun to see how everyone looks today, but I'm always a little sad when the season's over- it's the only show I get really invested in!
I hope you have a happy day :)
