Weight Loss Journey Part 2 - Week 3

I had a really busy week so I started my week eating out for the first two days. I wish I would have made healthier choices but I did eat some salads and veggies. I did eat breakfast at home for those two days so it did help out with my calorie count. Since I knew that I didn't follow my menu plan the first two days I was very strict with the remaining five days and stuck to the plan. We are trying to do a lot of saving this year and one of the things we agreed to do was to eat out only when extremely necessary.

I also saved money by looking through my freezer and pantry and getting creative with what I had and not buying any new groceries. I followed my plan of eating the Dr. Oz Rapid Weight Loss Plan one day and a low carb diet the next day. I ate lots of veggies on my Dr. Oz days and didn't miss the bacon or cheese on those days. I also drank the Jillian Michaels detox water.

Since I was out and about a lot the first two days of the week I did tons of walking and burned tons of calories without exercising. On the remaining 5 days I stuck to my plan and did the exercise videos I had listed. It was fun doing new videos and I really enjoyed stretching and relaxing with the yoga. I didn't get frustrated when I couldn't do certain moves and am just looking forward to getting better and better as I keep trying.

To keep up with my motivation and organization I created a Weight Loss command center! Here is where I can write and see what I have planned for the month and week, my water tally, exercise to-do moves and motivational posters.

Next Week's Plan:

  • Dr. Oz one day, Low Carb next day
  • Take probiotics and vitamins
  • Make low carb freezer meals

  1. You are rocking this! I think I'd be more inclined to drink that detox water if it was in a pretty container like that. I need to do that also.

  2. I love Jillian Michaels workouts. I want to try her detox water (and put it in a cute cup!)

  3. You really have your stuff together! I am sure you're going to do real well on your journey.

  4. Do you have the recipe for the detox water?

    1. Hi Christy.

      You take 1/2 gallon of distilled water, add a Dandelion Root Tea Bag, 1 tblsp of no sugar added pure cranberry juice and 2 tblsp of fresh lemon juice. Let everything for about an hour. Drink this throughout the day and make a new batch each day. I usually do it for 5-7 days.

  5. I'm loving the command center. What a great visual way to stay on track. Keep up the good work!

  6. You are doing so great! I love your little girls coat!

  7. I'm probably dating myself, but I like Tae Bo. I like to run on the treadmill too. Sounds like you're doing great on your diet. I like that you alternate days...one for the Dr Oz diet and one for low carbs.

  8. Sounds like you are very committed and that is very important to success. Keep up the good work!
