Quest for My Pretty - Weight Loss Report


Hello everyone!

I'm still on a bit of a blogging break, but I wanted to update you on the progress I am having with my Challenge Group that I am running. I don't yet entirely know how my group members are doing, but I know how *I* as their leader am doing. For the group I've been posting every day with tips, encouragement, and daily check-in accountability. I want my 5 participants to succeed too! For myself, the last week I've been doing Week 1 of Les Mills PUMP workouts, along with Turbo Kick teaching. I've also been working very hard to get 10000 steps in a day. I've been sticking to the meal plan within Les Mills PUMP to the best of my abilities and yes - there has been a change. My starting weight was 172.8 lbs (GASP! How did I ever get here again???). I'm happy to say that is no longer where I am...  

Weight: 169.2 (-3.6 lbs)

Oh my gosh! One week of focused food and exercise! Can you believe it??? I almost don't myself. It just goes to show me how far off base I've been. My "eyeballing" method was totally screwed up. 4 oz of chicken is smaller than I was estimating for example. So for me, this loss is really about eating well. I've been doing 5 meals a day at 300 calories each. I'm supposed to be having 2 100 calorie snacks due to my weight, but I never seem to get those in for a total of 1700 calories. Incidentally, I will be doing another Challenge Group in May. If you are interested in participating, please send me a message. I encourage you to contact me on Facebook. Because I know it's been all about eating I'm going to leave you today with some FOOD Porn from my meals this week:

Popcorn Bowl! My favorite snack!!!
Sashimi - Easiest Eat Out meal EVER!
Healthy Cereal Breakfast (and Yummy)
Yes, I'm still the Stir Fry Queen! Just better... 
Apparently, you can make Pancakes out of Shakeology too

Anyway, have a great week! I'll hopefully be back up to full speed soon. Just know that right now I appreciate your understanding!

    1. Thank you, Bill. I plan to! I really can't believe how much I dropped in one week! I'm also hearing my group's reports - half of us dropped over 3 lbs this week just refocusing, eating healthy, and exercise. It's fantastic!
