Before we get to the week 3 weigh in, I’d like to share some non-scale victories!
- I have blogged every single day for 22 days!!!! WHOOOOOOO!!!!!
- After 4 years, the Blogilates HQ is finally painted a color I like! Apricot Jam! And it has new gates with electronic key pad thingies! SO LEGIT.
- New POPFLEX designs have come back and the fit is so good.
- We’re currently casting for a really important body positivity video I’m making and I think we may have just chosen the final ladies who will star in it…
- My splits are getting lower!!!! EEEEE!!!!
Front splits. This was me on August 19th.
This was me yesterday! September 5th.
The biggest difference here is that the hole under my hips is getting smaller! One day I hope for there to be no light shining through!
Middle splits. This was me on August 19th.
This was me yesterday! OH MY GOSH.
I am actually lower. WHAT IS HAPPENING!!????? I think one day I may be able to ACTUALLY touch the floor with my crotch!!! When that day comes, there will def need to be a huge celebration! Like, I’m gonna get myself a blue velvet cake and balloons and throw myself a crotch touching the floor party :P
Now, before we get into the week 3 weigh in, I need to say this once more since there was an uproar a couple days ago about a post I did. Even though I do weigh ins and track my progress more than some people would like to see – I want to make it clear that analyzing numbers is not an unhealthy obsession – for me. Analytics are simply how I am able to strategically plan my next move. It’s what I do with my career and my businesses as well!
Week 3 weigh in:
I already predicted that this week, there’d be no change or even an increase in weight. Turned out this was true – I know my body well. The good news is that I had a 0.2% decrease in body fat and a 0.1% increase in muscle mass! That is awesome! Whoo!
I’m happy to see that whatever I am doing – it is working! Slow and steady wins this race. Nothing drastic or crazy, no starving, no fad diets. It’s just me being super focused. Enjoying my food. Enjoying my workouts. This time around, I’m doing it MY way…and I feel so alive.
DAY 21 RECAP:
Yesterday I went for a 3 mi run and then headed to stretch class at night! It was an interesting day for food. I wasn’t as ravenous as usual. Maybe it was because I had matcha collagen for breakfast? Not sure, but I ended the night with a very unusual dinner. I decided to go with what my heart wanted :)
Lunch was this keto bowl from Tocaya Organica. It had cauliflower rice, ground beef, brussel sprouts, bell peppers, avocado, olives, cheese, and hot sauce. I took out the olives. Not a fan. I also ordered guac on the side to share with Sam. So good. This one had pumpkin seeds and pomegranate seeds on top! Super filling. Would def order again.
Post lunch snacks – a slice of pepperjack cheese plus thai chili almonds and cashews.
When I got home for dinner, I wasn’t actually hungry but I did want something “fun” to eat. So I made myself a nut milk collagen matcha drink…and then…I was like…
I NEED ICE CREAM. So I ate the rest of the tub. It was glorious. It was perfect. I loved it. I’m willing to relinquish the cheeses from my lazy keto plan, but I dunno guys – this ice cream is too good!!! It’s gone for now…but I might just have to go get another tub!
