My 30 Day Weight Loss Challenge - Week 1

My 30 Day Weight Loss Challenge - Week 1

Starting weight: 118lbs

Current weight: 116.7lbs 

Okay, so this week has been pretty up and down. I feel like I have been really ontop of my workouts. I even did a boxing class on Tuesday, which was totally new for me and a really good challenge! I did quite a bit of yoga, both hot yoga and power yoga. I only missed 1 day out of a whole week.

But for some reason the weight isn't falling off.

It used to.

So what's happening?

Well my boss gave me some good insight. It's basically all about diet, it's like 70% diet. And I totally understand, I mean if I actually want to loose weight then my intake has to be less than output.

So I've tightened up my belt, yes, even more. I've somehow noticed a difference in just a few days. And I must say it's very tricky at my office because there are some opportunities to break the rules. But I am dedicated and super motivated.

Bring it on week 2!

My 30 Day Weight Loss Challenge - Day 1

Day 1

Today just happened to be day 1 of my weight loss challenge, and it also happened to be a Monday. Surprisingly, it was a great Monday. I only got about 5 hours of sleep but I felt super rested, and I didn't even take a nap after work!

It felt like a really balanced day. I worked this morning, and then after work I met my best friend for coffee at my favorite coffee shop, then I came home and did some work on a new project that I have coming up, and then I went to yoga.

In my brain this translates to: professional, social, and health.

Now lets talk about my diet. Here is what I ate today...

Smoothie - mix of fruit, egg whites, almond milk and flax.
Coffee with almond milk

1 chocolate covered caramel

Roasted lamb with a green salad
Coffee with almond milk

Almond milk latte
Vegan carob almond butter bar

Herbal tea

Okay so clearly I need to drink more water and less coffee. But not bad!

And I've decided to weigh myself in the morning, so that will have to wait until tomorrow. But I have a good feeling that it will either be down or the same.

Overall, day 1 was a success!
