My Weight Loss Journey

It's been two months since i started my weight loss journey and life couldn't be any better. I am happy to say that i have lost fifteen pounds and counting... Woo hooo. I can tell you that it wasn't easy, but i did it. Getting to where I'm at today has taken a lot of sacrifices. I am by no means close to my goal, but I'm definitely getting there. I have had to do early morning workouts, give up my favorites foods, and most importantly changed my mentality with regards to food , but i know it will be worth it in the end.  Honestly what has kept me motivated has been the fear of failing.

I made my weight loss journey public and the last thing i want to do is fail and let my self down. I met with one of my BFF this past week and we got talking about the dedication it takes into making it happen with regards to weight loss and it made me realize that weight loss is one of the easiest things and hardiest at the same time to do and it takes the right state of mind to accomplish your goals. I'll give you a run down of what my typical week is like.

Monday: 25 minute run on the treadmill at 2.0 incline and 5.7 speed. Elliptical Trainer for 25 mins. 20 minutes of circuit training and 10 minutes of Abs training.

Tuesday: 25 minute run on the treadmill at 2.0 incline and 5.7 speed. 55 minute kickboxing class.

Wednesday: Repeat Monday's Workout. Wednesday nights i do Yoga for an hour.

Thursday: Repeat Tuesday's workout.

Friday: 25 minute run on the treadmill at 2.0 incline and 5.7 speed and weight training class. This class consists of using barbell to strengthen and tone your entire body. It challenges all of your major muscle groups, using the best weight room exercises like squats, presses, lifts and curls. This class is the business and will whip you into shape in no time. It's not about how much  weight you lift, its about using the proper technique.

Meal Plan:

Breakfast usually consists of Two eggs with Weight Watchers bread or a packet of Oatmeal with Fruit or Low fat Yogurt.

Lunch is usually a Chicken salad or deli wrap with lots of vegetables.

Snack usually consists of sliced cucumber, sweet peas,  apple sauce, jello, Weight Watchers carrot cake or muffin and a medium sized fruit.

Dinner is usually a small piece of beef tenderloin, salmon, pork. Lots of vegetables and rice or potato.

I try to drink 6-8 glasses of water

I am trying to cut out alcohol completely, but its proven to be harder than i thought. I'm not an alcoholic by no means, but i tend to drink in social settings or when hanging out with friends.  Cutting out the alcohol will definitely help with my weight loss. Its my best friends wedding next weekend and my other best friends birthday a week later. I have promised to quit drinking for a few  months after those I hope i can.

I'm almost there!!!
