REBALANCE, Carli: Week One

Week One down!

Weigh-in: 168.4 lbs

Lost: 1.5lbs

Hormones, sisters, a Giants game, and a graduation…OH MY! WOW!! What a week to restart REBALANCE. I’m so glad I did though! Over this past week I went to a Giants game where I usually would be chowing down on beer and hot dogs. Instead, I had a healthy breakfast of egg whites and whole-wheat toast that prevented that from happening. I had my usual girls night out with a vodka soda with lime. It’s super refreshing and is only 64 calories, whereas a glass of wine is typically 120 calories. The most exciting time this weekend was when one of my sisters graduated from Cal Poly. Super fun, but tons of celebration food of course.

I kept telling myself, “moderation” and “go do something else” as I watched four out of my five very tall and very skinny (thanks genetics for giving me the short round gene!) younger sisters scarf down the pigs in a blankets, cake, cookies and soda. Instead, I enjoyed the BBQ chicken, which was delicious. I managed to avoid the hot dogs and cheese wrapped in croissant rolls without feeling deprived.

Now there is always that one week a month that chocolate calls me! UGH!! I hate you hormones for ruining my healthy eating! This time around, I indulged in a couple ounces of dark chocolate instead of my typical handfuls of milk chocolate chips. That little modification seemed to do the trick. Just remember, there’s always an option to cut the calories and still feel satisfied!

Need a suggestion, but not on our REBALANCE program? Feel free to shoot me an email at and I would be happy to help you find the healthier option!

So now the first week is done and I’m down 1.5lbs! I’ll take it! REBALANCE is not meant to be a fast journey so stick around with me and we’ll keep chipping away together!
