21 Day Fix Week 2

It is hard to believe I am on week 3 of doing the 21 Day fix and this will be my last week of round one.

Weight Loss:
Two Pounds

Total Weight Loss: 
4 Pounds

This Week I lost 2 pounds for a total of 4 pounds lost. I was actually surprised I lost two pounds this week. I would have been happy with losing 1 pound this week.

This week I ate well for the most part. However, Wednesday night I did indulge a bit more then I should have. I was really tired and stressed out. I also didn't exercise. I figured my body needed the rest and I didn't want to beat myself up over it. I just knew I could not make a habit out of it.

I know for me I have to do these 21 days because it takes 21 days to form a new habit. I want eating healthy and exercise to be a habit for me. I know in the past I've skipped a day or two of eating well and exercising and then just stopped all together. I always had some excuse. But, I decided I would no longer make excuses.

In this process I am also learning it is about a lot more then the food I eat and exercise. Yes, that is a huge part of weight loss. But, it won't keep the weight off. I also need a spiritual practice to keep me motivated. That is why I got back to my yoga and meditation practice. It keeps me grounded.

If I have a bad day or feel like giving up I go to my yoga mat. It helps to keep me motivated with eating healthy and my exercise as well. It truly is a whole mind, body, spirit process.

I just Found out about PBFit. I had never heard of it before or if I did I never payed attention to what it was. I also heard that having a whole wheat waffle with peanut butter was delicious. Before 21 day Fix this is something I never would have probably tried. But, It is  delicious and actually good for me. I still don't go overboard with the PBfit but it is a nice lower calorie lower fat alternative to peanut butter. I also mixed it in my yogurt because I seriously am missing my Ben and Jerry's Peanut butter cup ice cream. I put some cinnamon on top (it is a freebie) and it was so good. Almost as good as having the ice cream. It took care of that craving. 

I made a turkey burger with asparagus and sweet potato fries. All homemade of course. It was better then fast food that's for sure. I feel like I actually get to eat real food and I haven't felt deprived once. Usually I am starving and craving all these sugary fatty foods. It has made this process so much easier. 

This week is doubles week on the exercise. I haven't quite decided if I'm going to do that yet. Today it was Total Body Cardio Fix and I stuck with doing just that and my yoga practice. I would love to do doubles but I'm not quite sure I have the energy for that yet. However, I am going to try to get up early to do my workouts. We will see how that goes. 

One more week of my 1st round of 21 day Fix to go. I am psyched to see how much weight I lose at the end of this round and am pumped to make this next week count as much as possible.
