131 update – week 1


I didn’t get the results I was hoping for during my first week on 131, but to lose almost 2 lbs even with all the unplanned eating out, that’s a testament to the plan! Just please disregard the first thing in the morning feet. I need a pedicure lol.

I had my usual trivia went out with my coworkers for dinner and a movie on the Tuesday and worked really long hours all week so I didn’t eat as well as I’d like for dinners.

That’s ok. I just need to plan better this week, and I did. I have my pork tenderloin ready to go for 3 lunches and thawed some sausages out so I have them ready when needed. Going to go into the week better prepared!

Other than trivia tomorrow and having a fajita night with some friends on Wednesday, I should be okay to stick to plan this week. And as Chalene says, you shouldn’t aim to be perfect all the time. This 131 program is not one size fits all and you just have to do what works for you and do better the next day if you slip up.

I am happy to be headed in the right direction at least. And I have set up a budget too that so far I’ve been sticking to.

Finances Update

Of course life is what happens when you’re making plans, so it turns out I will need to buy new snow tires come winter. Not impressed with the second-hand car. Never doing it again! As soon as my credit card is paid off I might look into a trade in.

I also decided to sign up for the WordPress event happening here later this summer. I am really enjoying the blogging and want to continue. Hoping that you guys seeing my progress can help you in some ways too.

Anxiety – Fear of Abandonment

I had some anxiety when it came to my friends this week. I just can’t shake these fears of abandonment. This is a new goal. I really need to find ways to not fear being alone in future. Right now I am ok, and that’s what matters and what I can control. I feel sometimes like Chandler from Friends, and that every fight or argument equals a breakup lol. And it’s not healthy.

Call to Action – Upcoming

Alright. Well I would really love it if you guys followed me on social media, you can check out the links below and would love to hear your comments on the blog, anything else you’d like to see from me. Sunday’s will always be an update, but the other post or two during the week are for other related topics, so let me know if there’s something you want to see in the comments!

Oh, and I should be getting my fabfitfun box any day now. I will do an unboxing so you can join in the fun!

Getting out of Debt, goals, personal development, self-esteem, weight loss

Last day of the old me!

There it is, my official starting weight and proof of it. I’m sure those technically savvy people out there can time stamp it lol. It’s from this morning. I am preparing for my first week officially of 131. No more excuses.

I think it will help now that everything is settled with the car. I have a new car! A Honda Fit and I got my cheque from the insurance so I can file that away.

Once I get my portion of the cheque back and my last rent cheque is posted I am closing my old bank account (or newest really) and moving back to good old RBC!

I have made changes to all of my bills basically except electricity and have made changes to what I have in debt so that I am paying less interest. I’m really excited to start seeing things really change.

I just had an early Father’s Day dinner with the family at Robbie’s Smokehouse and it was delicious! Sorry I didn’t take a picture of my plate as soon as my food came lol. I couldn’t wait I guess. A good last meal before I get back on track. I know, not exactly helping the weight loss.

I didn’t get a chance to cook my pork tenderloin for my lunches the next couple of days, but I will tomorrow before I go to trivia and I have some chicken and other things ready for tomorrow.

The good thing about 131 is it’s not a diet. More like guidelines and an experiment on yourself to see what works for you, since we’re all different.

I will come home on time every day this week to do my Piyo and make sure I am cooking right and if anyone is interested I can show my food choices as well to give you an idea of what you can have while on 131.

Tomorrow will be pretty boring. Just a shake and some cheese most likely for lunch and then a chicken Caesar salad (minus the croutons) for dinner. But I love my pork tenderloin recipe so I’ll share that 🙂

Okay, so you have my starting weight. Last time I did this I lost 8 lbs my first week. I’d be pretty happy with that! But if I’m exercising and adding muscle it could be less. We’ll see!

I am so glad to see so many new views but I still feel like my posts are a bit all over the map, so I’d like some feedback from you, things you like, don’t like, any suggestions. I want to help people like me so please speak up!
