Begin Again: Week 3 Phase 2

Weight/Fat loss is 80% nutrition and 20 %  exercise, everyone knows that....
 But did you know that when you don't plan what you should eat and the right portions, even healthy eating will not make you lose weight?... This was my Geico moment.

So I said in my head that I would do a detox last week, or more like a detox would be a good idea but I didn't make any concrete plans so that detox didn't happen.

My diet didn't change either and I didn't make any meal preps. I thought with the screen free week we had a couple of weeks ago, I would be able to take time out to make a plan, but I was dog tired at the end of everyday that week, that didn't happen. We were trying to reduce screen time in our household while connecting more with one another, and it was a bit hard the first few days but we survived it.

My stats for this week.

Weight: 179lbs
Waist: 37 inches
Hips: 45 inches
Chest: 40 inches
Thigh: 27 inches

I have decided to do updates every 2 weeks, so I don't feel pressured.

I am finally getting to the detox this week , starting tomorrow.

I am cutting out sugar and salt from my meals for the rest of the week.

I will eat only the following foods, prepared which ever way I like

Fruits: Apples, Grapefruits, Strawberries

Vegetables: Bell peppers, Broccoli, Cucumbers, Cabbage, Lettuce, Green beans, Tomatoes, Spinach, Avocados, Brussels sprouts, Okra, Onions

Oils: Low fat dressing, Olive oil

Nuts: Almonds, Peanuts

I chose these foods because I didn't want to add anything that I don't like to eat, or anything new I want to try, this is no the time.

I have been pretty consistent with my exercise and I intend to keep using this for this week and after the detox I will switch it up a bit.

Update and Meal plan PH 2

I know I said I will be back the very next day but I didn't make it * screen-free week*. I don't have a  meal plan either.

 Everyone knows for fat loss/ weight loss, nutrition is 80 % of the work. So far I have just been eating my regular foods. I had rice on Sunday and today I had spaghetti. The only change I have been able to apply to my nutrition is having a serving of vegetables with my meals and I also make sure I drink at least 3 cups of water everyday. I am giving myself a hall pass this week. I hope to take some time out this before the week runs out to make a meal plan.

Or maybe I should try a detox first before  coming up with a meal plan. *thinking*

On my exercise plan, I am on it and I can say that it hasn't been easy. Yesterday I thought my knees were going to give up after my squats. I was thinking to myself, that I was too ambitious with the number of repetitions. I had to take a break and then completed the rest in the evening.

Till next weigh in/measurements and update, keep moving and eating healthy

Begin again: Week 1 Phase 2

Imagine where you will be in a year.... Imagine where you will be in 3 months.....
You know what to do to lose weight/ fat. What is stopping you?

This is me thinking to myself about my fat-loss or lack of. The most important thing is to start then take one day at a time. That is what brought me here. Then I saw Sugabelly's post. I looked back at my weight in 2013 when we started the group and I was a little bit ashamed that I have even gained a few pounds. So I am back here, writing it down and making it happen.

This is my body stats as at today

Weight: 185lbs - Would have put up a picture as we normally do but I was just bursting to do this before I procrastinate again

Height: 5'5''
Waist : 38 inches
Hips: 45 inches
Chest: 40 inches
Thigh: 27 inches

Exercise Plan








               20 CRUNCHES
               20 BICYCLES
               20 LEG RAISES   
               20 TOE TOUCHES

I am also not forgetting my food both the quality and portions. Will put up my meal plan tomorrow.

Anyone wants to join me in my exercise plan? Any meal plan suggestions?

Back and better!

Hello people,

Happy new year to you all.

I haven't been here in a longggg time. Lets keep the blog alive.

I have been exercising consistently since November 2014 till date and it has definitely been worth it. I have also been off bad carbs (rice and co) and have been eating pretty healthy.

I work out in the morning and at night. I run 4km every morning which takes me about 30 minutes and I run the stairs too for about 30 minutes. Running or walking up the stairs burns a lot of calories. I downloaded an app called endomondo which I use to measure my performance.

My first weigh in on this blog was in June or July 2014 where I weighed 73.7kg, now I weigh 68.4kg and I am aiming to lose about 8kg. It really feels good to see results and I have promised myself to never look back, as a a matter of fact, my greatest fear is gaining all the weight I have lost.

I will keep updating and I would love to read from y'all.

Happy 2015

Happy new year Fitfam!

So no one is trying to lose any weight this year? Or we are all doing it without the hassle of blogging about it?

I thought I would see posts here already.

Seems like I am all alone.

I will be back tomorrow with a proper update

Hello everyone,

I have decided to be consistent with my exercise one again. I have been exercising indoors through the help of fitness blender on Youtube. You can try it and trust me, its as vigorous as outdoor exercises.

I am focusing on my arms, thighs and belly so i do a lot of weight lifting, squats, cardio and pilates.

If you are on twitter, please follow @truppr, they do a lot of exercises from time to time. The last one was a walk from Stadium to CMS which i absolutely enjoyed.

Hi everyone....

How're we faring?

i have recently started the the 30 day squat challenge....

Tis not for the faint hearted but i hear once you get the hang of it it's easy peasy the rest of the way.

I am also alternating that with 2km road walks...

No weight lost yet i'm afraid mostly because i still eat heavy dinners :(

But we are still on the weight loss challenge ;)

Week not sure*

I'm not sure if to label it Week 1 or 2 or 3...*shrug*
Current weight: 103.7
All statistics however remain the same *sigh* however I look better physically. I'm not sure that makes sense.
I haven't been to the gym because of the recurring headaches and waist pain. The doctor said the waist pain could be as a result of epidural during childbirth but that its nothing serious. I try to watch what I eat but the coke addiction is real.
Its to hot to walk...where I live in summer NA DIE.
I bought a Jillian Micheals dvd and well as some others, so far they've been more for motivation.
