Week THREE of my weight loss journey! 

I’ve had a great week and I’m feeling positive 🙂 

I stepped on the scale on Tuesday and the numbers are the same, and that’s ok! This is a journey… it’s going to take a lot of time and I just got to be patient. 

My week two was a total failure: no workouts or activity, no meal prep, no macro tracking, no calorie deficit… too much pizza and fast food…. week TWO wasn’t good at all… 

BUT,  week THREE was great!

✨I hit the gym 4x  in the AM… (I know, I’m just as shocked as you). 

✨I’ve been drinking TONS of water… I got my gallon with me at all times! (Yet, I still haven’t gotten around to drinking the full gallon each day lol)

✨I’ve been meal prepping, macro counting and making sure I eat clean and  healthy. This has been the hardest part of my journey with the most mistakes and downfalls. 

✨I have more energy! I feel more alive and I’m just feeling positive because I’m taking care of my body and health. 

Here’s my meal prep for the week: 

Breakfast: Oatmeal (trader Joe’s steel cut frozen oatmeal- Calories: 150) 


– protein: either two hard boiled eggs or a low calorie breakfast sandwich that I can pop in the microwave. (Usually 190 calories) 

Lunch: I made tilapia and veggies! 

4-5 oz of tilapia and Two cups of veggies. (Sometimes 1/4 – 1/2 cup of quinoa as rice.) usually 230 calories or so. 


Dinner: this is where my struggle is. I will be convinced to go out to dinner with my boyfriend and friends or eat what he eats (he’s a pizza and fast food guy lately). I try to meal prep or eat a healthy salad… but confess that I kind of eat whatever for dinner. Or i comfort eat… I’ll tell myself to eat what I crave because I had a stressful day. I hate this. I’m working really hard this week to change that!!! 

I’m not hitting my macros or calorie deficit mainly because of my dinner… it truly is my biggest hurdle at the moment. 

So let’s pray I get ahold of this issue this week and start to make progress! 

Snacks: usually string cheese (light 50 calories), Danon light & fit Greek yogurt (80 calories), fruit, pop corn (ive been loving Skinny Pop and Boom Chicka Pop), imitation crab meat, rice cakes with peanut butter… etc. 

-snacking less is a little tough for me, but I’m getting better and trying to pick up fresh and low calorie options. 



My fitness pal:

I decided to buy the premium version of my fitness pal so that I can track and log everything that touches my lips. I do good most days with tracking everything, but realize that I go over my calorie intake for the day a lot, which is 1400 calories. 

I’m focusing this week on hitting my 1400 calorie mark and NOT going over! 

This has been such a challenge as well. I never realized that even when I started eating “better and healthier” I was still eating thousands of calories over what I should be. 

Too much of any food is truly not good for you. 

Week THREE workouts: 


Im pretty happy with my commitment to the gym and plan to go 2x hard this week. 🙂 

Well that’s all for this week! I had a few great improvements and some hurdles that I can work on this week. Thanks for following along with my journey! 

Stay tuned for next week for week FOUR of my fitness and weight loss journey!

  1. Good job, keep it up!

    I’m 36, and, for the first time ever, I feel not only like I should work out to just get more fit, but to actually lose some fat around the tummy. (It was bound to happen one day, vegan junk food, is still junk food, lol) I’ll take some of your tips though I am awfully lazy and don’t know if I can commit to working out at such a high level.

  2. It’s so wonderful to hear that you’re doing well in your week three! Put week two in the past, everyone makes mistakes – learn from them and become a better person!

    Congratulations on your perseverance!

  3. Good luck and well done. Next week I’m sure you’ll have some fantastic results but remember every if you’re still at the same weight at least it’s not going up! Thanks for motivating me to get back on the wagon.

  4. Way to go on seeing it through, especially not becoming discouraged when the scale didn’t alter this week. That’s actually a great thing! The calorie intake is hard to first adjust but I promise once you have it all figured out it will be second nature to eat half a portion of this, or just steal a bit of that. It’s okay to spoil yourself too, don’t burn yourself out! With your amazing spirit and the plan you have put together I know you can do this!

  5. Good job! Congrats! I am a nutritionist as well as a chef and they always tell us how failure is part of the process! as long as you keep moving on all is well! Woohoo! Hugs!

  6. YES! I love this idea! I lost 70lbs about two years ago with MyFitnessPal. It’s a really great tool for being accountable and keeping track of what does/doesn’t work.

  7. You’re doing a great job. I recently started using My Fitness Pal and would go over calories as well. I now add the calories prior to eating the snack or meal to ensure that I’m on the right track. If it takes me over, I typically will just have something else.

  8. Those meals look absolutely amazing. And that’s awesome that you were prepping in advance for all of that. That’s so great that you have that kind of time. And go you on the workouts!!!
