Fit Girl Friday: Week Six Update

Weekly Weigh in: -5 lbs. (11.6 more lbs. to go!)

This week, based on my "official" weigh in two weeks ago, I lost a little more than 3 lbs! I started the Fit Girl's Guide 28 Day Jumpstart this Monday with my sisters, and of course, I wasn't able to follow it to a tee because I am a rebel. LOL.

Breakfast for the week: Berry Pie Fridge Oats (contains: berries, vanilla flavored Greek yogurt, honey, chia seeds, almond milk, oats)
Lunch for the week: Tofu & Veggie Power Bowl

Lunch for the week: Tofu & Veggie Power Bowl (contains: tofu, brown rice, broccoli, carrots, chickpeas, soybeans, red beans, kale)

Dinner Choice #1: Sweet Potato Street Tacos (contains: sweet potatoes, mushrooms, onions, spinach, avocado)

Dinner Choice # 2: Pita Pizza Party (contains: red bell peppers, mushrooms, spinach)

In all seriousness, I did try very hard to stick to the diet except for Tuesday and last night. Tuesday, I had a management meeting to attend... at a diner! I still tried to be good though. I could have ordered a Reuben, but stuck to eggs instead. Last night, I had dinner pretty late so I didn't have time to prep. I just ate whatever was in the kitchen, ready to be eaten. LOL.

As far, as the physical part of the challenge, I was good day one, but didn't do so well after. The weather didn't really permit bike riding this week, and not to make excuses, but I am physically, mentally, and emotionally spent after a day at work so working out is usually not something I want to do as soon as I get home... unfortunately.

While I didn't do too bad this week, I hope to do better next week. I feel so motivated, although a bit hungry... Hahaha! At this rate, I may reach my goal weight in just two to three more weeks! It will definitely be a challenge this weekend since we will be celebrating Father's Day two days in a row! I need to keep my self control in check. LOL.

Wish me more luck!

Fit Girl Friday: Week Five Update

Weekly Weigh in: ???

I forgot to weigh myself this morning. We had a funeral to go to, so it was the last thing on my mind. If I were to guess, I probably gained weight. I did weigh myself Wednesday, but it was in the evening, after a whole day of eating and drinking. I usually weigh myself in the morning, soon after waking up and peeing. Because of this, I don't think that my weigh in that evening was accurate. I probably want to believe that because according to the scale, I gained pretty much all the weight I lost so far. LOL. If I were being honest, that's not at all surprising since this whole week my mind has been preoccupied by a lot of other things, and losing weight was the farthest thing on my mind. I didn't get to bike much, and I didn't really watch what I ate.

But no point in beating myself up over this; Time to get back on the horse. LOL. This Monday, my sisters and I will be starting the Fit Girl's Guide 28 Day Jumpstart. We'll do the grocery shopping, and start the meal prep Sunday.

Wish us luck, and don't forget to check out Phoebe's blog to check her progress! (We're still trying to get our other sister to make a blog.)

Fit Girl Friday: Week Four Update

Weekly Weigh in: -1.8 lbs. (14.8 more lbs. to go!)

That was surprising... Not because I haven't lost any weight since my last weigh in two weeks ago, but because I didn't gain any considering the last last two weeks I have had. As mentioned in my last post, I had been eating a lot of "junk" (take out, microwable stuff, fast food) because the kitchen was out of commission two weeks ago. This past week wasn't any better. What made it worse was the fact that we were supposed to start the the Fit Girl's Guide 28 Day Jumpstart this week!

Saturday was my friend's birthday celebration at Smorgasburg in Brooklyn, which meant pigging out. Good food paired with no self control is no bueno. LOL. Sunday was also spent pigging out, and being inactive, which I'll elaborate more later. The last few days, we celebrated my mom and the hubster's birthdays, which also equaled to eating a lot, and eating a lot of cake.

That's okay, as long as I exercise and work off all those calories, right? Right. But I didn't. LOL. The first few days of the week had been raining, so no biking for me. I didn't get a chance to ride until Wednesday night, and I only did 5.3 miles! That wasn't by choice. It started to get dark, and since I do not have headlights on my bike yet, I can't ride when it's dark. Yesterday was the same thing... only 3.3 miles because it started to get dark.

Again, it was a surprise that I didn't gain any weight. I'm happy that I didn't, I was just surprised. I was almost afraid to go on the scale. LOL. I guess my metabolism is starting to speed up. :)

Back to Sunday... We planned on going biking on a local bike trail, but it was raining all day. Not that it mattered anyway since my body shut down. No, I wasn't hungover. LOL. I guess it's due to all of the physical work put in fixing the kitchen, not sleeping until 5 am, and not to mention, my full time job. I pretty much slept the whole day and the better part of the evening, waking up a few times just to eat unhealthy food (A.K.A chocolates, chips, and ice cream.) This happens once in awhile where I just cannot physically function. I don't like it, but I understand that my body needs it. Does this happen to anyone else? Just me, the weird one, then?

How has your week been? Any luck with losing weight, and/or being healthy?
