6 Week Weight Loss Challenge- Week 2
Sorry I'm a day late, but we ended up taking an impromptu mini-holiday to Niagara Falls and I didn't have access to a scale yesterday.
I had a really awesome time, though! We stayed at the Marriott Niagara Fallsview hotel. As a general rule I really like staying at Marriotts because the service is great and the rooms are comfortable, and now I can add because they serve delicious, healthy meals as well.
Their breakfast buffet is really great- they have a make-your-own omelette station with lots of fresh vegetables and you can request egg whites. Along with all the "usual" breakfast items that I stay away from, they have hot oatmeal with dried fruit and nuts, fresh fruit, fat free yogurt, and whole wheat toast. It's easy to have a healthy, on plan breakfast that tastes great.
We also went to their hotel restaurant, the Terrapin Grille, which overlooks Niagara Falls. It's beautiful at night when the falls are lit up and especially when they shoot off fireworks! I had a house salad with Niagara icewine vinaigrette (it is amazing!) and broiled lobster tails with plain steamed veggies and a multigrain roll for dinner. Delicious and a great flex dinner. Now, the champagne that we had later that evening wasn't, but it was worth it :)
This week I lost 1.3lbs, which I see as a triumph given that I ate out all weekend plus the alcohol. I also confess that I did not exercise on the weekend. I brought my gym shoes but made excuses to avoid using them. I've already exercised today though and I've got 18 more days to go to complete the shred!
