Weigh-in Wednesday + Paleo recipe

Starting weight: 176.4 
Last week weight: 128.6
Current weight:  129.4
Current loss:  +0.8
TOTAL LOSS:  -47.0

Not disappointed at all.  Inches are still going down and since I'm in a muscle building workout program, the number on the scale will fluctuate.

Speaking of workouts...

PR hit in back squat:  155 lbs.  
That puts me between "intermediate" and "advance" according to these standards.  Not bad if my body weight keeps dropping and the barbel weight keeps increasing.

Protein Cinnamon Swirl "Bread"

For this yumminess, I  followed this recipe by Jamie Eason but switched out the oat flour for almond flour and tweaked a little bit of the directions.  The end result was really good, but a little too sweet for me so next time I'm cutting the stevia in half.

Nutrition facts: Makes 16 squares
1 square = 55 calories, 1g fat, 8g carbs, 5g protein
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup stevia
1.5 cup almond flour
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
1c unsweetened almond milk
1 4-oz jar baby food applesauce (or no sugar added applesauce)

1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray an 8x8 pan with olive oil.
2.) In a large bowl, combine stevia, almond flour, protein powder, baking powder, and salt and mix well.
3.) In a medium bowl, combine egg whites, almond milk, and applesauce.  Combine with dry ingredients and fold together until incorporated.
4.) In a small bowl, scoop out about 1/2c of batter and combine with cinnamon.  Set aside.
5.) Pour batter from large bowl into pan, then drizzle batter + cinnamon (from step 4) into pan.
6.) Bake 25 minutes.

Woohoo on the PR!!! I am glad your inches are down. My weight is dropping a little bit one day and up the next haha.

I am so proud of you! I can't wait to see the 120's again :)

You're gonna have to tell me what PR means so I can congratulate you properly.

In the meantime, I'll just congratulate you on the lost inches & increased strength, and thank you for the recipe, which will come in very handy around Easter week when my family will have a big filling brunch and I'd like to be able to join in with my own yummy food.

You look great! Keep up the good work!
