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.
