Weight Loss Journey: Week 21

I lost 3.2 pounds for a total weight loss of 49.2 pounds. I decided to weigh myself today, on my birthday to see if I hit my goal of 50 pounds lost by my birthday. I stepped on the scale and could not believe I lost another 0.8 pounds! I am exactly 50 pounds down, what an amazing birthday present to myself!

I stayed on plan the entire week and did a lot of prep work to make cooking easier. Since it has been cold outside we have been enjoying lots of keto hot cocoa at night. I found a new chocolate mug cake that is so much better than the old. I will be eating it again today for my birthday! Why cheat when you can have something this delicious. On Thursday we stocked up on our keto needs with the impending blizzard on Friday-Saturday. While everyone was running around looking for bread and milk I was happy getting my butter, heavy cream and bacon. My husband got a snow day from work on Saturday so he helped me make batches of oopsie rolls and cauliflower mash to have for the week. This weekend I had some Bullet Proof Coffee for breakfast to give me a boost in energy. 

I continued with the FeFit exercise program. Since I am on week three the workouts are getting harder. I am so excited and surprised that I can actually keep up. I am now able to do modified push ups! On Wednesday we did an amazing upper body workout and I love how it worked every single muscle in just 30 minutes. I was having some soreness in my back so I am happy that by doing the 4 day a week program and I can move my exercise days around to be able to rest my back when I need to. I feel so much stronger and am able to carry and walk around with my three year old! We went out to play in the snow on Sunday. She got upset when her hands got too cold so I was able to scoop her up and carry her a whole block in the snow.

What kinds of foods do you like to do when you are snowed in? ‪

    I love homemade soups in the winter...mmmmm.

  2. That's the best birthday present! Congrats on hitting such a momunmental number.

  3. Such a great thing to celebrate on your birthday!! I have never tried Bullet Proof Coffee but have heard so much about it that I need to try it for myself.

  4. What's the mug cake recipe? My husband and I love those things! Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a good one that fits all of my dietary needs.

    And Happy Birthday and congrats on meeting your goal!
