Well, this has been an up and down week. I did not do as well with meal prep but still managed to eat well 90% of the time. I really struggled with my water and could tell on the days I didn’t have enough by the headache that came on before bed time. However, I believe I am forming some great habits I’ll continue even after these three weeks.
1. Fruit for breakfast! What a great way to get your servings in and the natural sugars are actually a great replacement for me for the flavored coffee creamer. I won’t say I don’t still miss coffee, but I truly think fruit is becoming my new habit of choice! Coffee will become more of a treat than a necessity
2. Less emotional eating. I won’t say I didn’t have some lapses, because I did. Yet, those lapses weren’t nearly as satisfying as I expected them to be. In fact, they were regrettable. They really offered no relief from the stress and just caused guilt. I do need to find a replacement activity for my emotional triggers, but it will definitely not be food.
3. Daily exercise. This program does not encourage anything more than light exercise like Yoga or Tai Cheng. I never though I would crave a good cardio or weight workout, but I do. I can’t wait to get back at it! I already have my next Beachbody plan picked out!
I am down another 1 pound from the beginning. Hoping I can stick to the plan 100% this next week and come out at least another 2 pounds down with a stretch goal of another 4!
I’ll leave you with some pictures of my meals this week!
