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)
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.
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!
