Weight Loss Challenge- Week 1 Recap

Week One Recap

Weight lost-1.2 lbs

Diet-  Had my morning an evening shake except for Friday (I did not have any).  Had my power pack salad three days, made a tuna wrap on Thursday and order a really good (bad) sandwich on Friday.  Yes Friday was not a good day for the diet. I am not a big snacker so I struggle with the in-between meal snacks ( I had very few). I was able to adhere to having small dinners so that was  a plus.

Exercise-  I did three days of cycling ; two were my normal schedule days but on Friday I did "the extra mile challenge" for Open Doors.  It was a great challenge and it made me realized I am physically stronger that I even image.  I did not do any exercise at home this week, but I aim to change my ways.

Recap- I made progress and stuck to my goals the best way I know how, I will continue on this path with a few tweaks here and there.  I have decided to make Friday my cheat day, since this Friday went down hill.

Week Two Goals

Weight Lost- 2lbs
Diet - Alternate between my power pack salad and my tuna wrap for lunch, a shake for breakfast and one in the evening with a small dinner.  Have watermelon, grapes and peaches for my snacks, I really hate those bars.
Exercise- Two cycling class, a piloxing class and a dance aerobics class ( if my knees will cooperate)

Wish we luck in making week two a bigger success than week one.


  1. Rice is my enemy right now. I think I will substitute it for a soup or something.

  2. Try Quinoa (it's a little expensive) but you get the feeling of eating rice, just healthier.

  3. I have been motivated by your blog and Kay and i have started walking in the evenings. However, i have not done much about the diet yet :)

  4. Sorry that was me

  5. Yeah.... that's a good start. I'll probable post a bunch of the recipes that I'm currently trying out.


Live Your Best Life

What on Earth is meant by “living your best life”, and how do we achieve it? Why does it seem like so many people other than us are living...
