Week 20 Weigh In, Tried Something Different This Week!

Let me start out by saying all of you who do the BFC are rock stars in my book!  Last week I did the BFC for maybe a day and a half, then my daughter got sick and I ate whatever I could find to eat.  Trying to eat low sugar and tracking what I was eating was far down my list of priorities.  Then I was sick for 2 days.  After being ill my weight was down 5 pounds, but I knew that would be temporary.  It has since leveled out to a weight loss I'm still excited about in week 20 of my weight loss journey.  I weighed in this morning and lost 3 pounds for the week!

I made one big change this week and I think my weight loss reflected that change, drinking MonaVie RVL shakes.  Instead of my normal breakfast I substituted this shake, sometimes made with just water and ice, sometimes with fruit, and/or a little nut butter. Since it provided the antioxidant power of more than 10 servings of fruits and vegetables, or for some other reason, they satisfied my hunger for hours.  I think I ended up eating less as a result.  I think I'll continue this habit for a while and see where it takes me.

This week I'm also going to add exercise back in to the healthy mix, starting this morning by training with my personal trainer.  I need to get the fire back for weight loss and working out!  This video really motivated me.  I hope it helps you too.

"It's up to you and what's inside you.  What you put into it is what you get out of it."

Tell me:

Did you shake up your weight loss routine recently?  Did you see results?  Please share, would love some new ideas.

Have a great healthy week everyone.

  1. Cat, have you read the blog:
    She has some incredible ideas to get motivated and to be successful.Today's writing was amazing.
    I am going to Zumba today and I plan to start adding other things into my workouts. 1 day at a time!
    I'm sorry you were sick:(

    1. Thanks for the blog info...great blog. I loved her advice and so spot on! I'm sure you see much of your success in her advice. I probably need to do a vision board. I guess I'll put that on my long to do list.

      I love that your doing Zumba. That's awesome! 1 day at a time is the only way. Best of luck to you.

  2. Congratulations on the weight loss and to getting yourself back on track. :)

  3. hi Cat, Sorry you were not feeling well and don't feel bad about not being able to stick with the BFC. There is a lot of people who cannot for some reason.
    I used to drink MonaVie a long time ago, but that powder has 29 carbs and 7 sugars per scoop and doesn't really fit in the BFC. Too bad cause I would have liked to try it.
    Have a great day :-)

  4. Glad to hear you are continuing to get back on track and mixing it up - I'm always a slow adapter, and it takes me far too long to change what's not working. I love that you post videos but I never watch them (I watched your vlog though) because I don't usually have time. Have a great day!

  5. Cat, congrats on losing three pounds - that's awesome!! I was watching a video of Jennifer Hudson on Dr. Oz and she said she just does 25 reps of just three different exercise in the morning and also jumps rope. Now that's something I might be able to do!

    1. Beth, you should do it. You'll probably be surprised at the results. I think the mental results of exercise are amazing. Consistency is far more important than duration in my opinion too! Thanks for supporting me. :)

  6. Yeah for the 3 lbs. that's fantastic.
    It feels good to get focused again...I know.
    My big mix for the day will be the new recipe I'm going to try :)

    1. You should post it if you like it. I'd love to try it out.

  7. Love the stories. Motivation is key when trying to lose weight. And Zumba "what a workout" you really work up a sweat. I am excited because I got a new DVD Zumba Set. I started after seeing some great zumba reviews. I feel great and have so much more energy.
