Lucy - Say 7, Phase 2: Weigh-In Day

So, you'll see I've lost another pound. I was hoping for more than that since I've exercised every day since last Saturday, but I'm hoping that I'm toning up and putting on muscle. And we all know muscle weighs more than fat.

I've been thinking about if there's anything I can change or if I'm doing anything wrong. I'm following the diet, and even being very careful not to have carbs on Carb Days after 2pm, like the fruit. Here are some thoughts:

1. I can always drink more water
2. I've been doing cardio/weight work in the morning, so maybe adding in some cardio in the evening will help: like walking on the treadmill when we get home. I feel like I do too much sitting after work.
3. Eat more veggies. I get sick of salads for lunch, so dinner leftovers are an easy solution. But I probably need to throw in some green beans or cauliflower with my leftovers is I'm not having a salad. It's become increasingly difficult to eat very much, but I need to make sure I'm getting my roughage.

Anyone else stalling out earlier than expected? I really don't think it's the diet; I think it's me, and the fact that I just WANT to lose more faster. I know I should be happy with 1 pound-ish a week, but I was hoping for bigger results. Maybe I'm just asking too much of myself.

On the flip side, I'm noticing that I feel better, clothes fit better, and I'm seeing a difference in my body. So, it can't be all bad, right?
