The Jillian Michaels App: Week 3

Read about week 3 of my journey using the Jillian Michaels App! It was definitely challenging but very effective- I've lost 12.5 lbs!

Another week, another update!

I lost another 6 lbs- WHAT?! So exciting! And that’s with no exercise. I’ve had the worst cold for two weeks now, I’m finally starting to feel better but until this cough goes away I still need to take it easy.

Since I finished the two weeks of “metabolic reset” by adhering to the meal plan, I’m changing up my diet a bit but essentially still following the rules laid out in the app.
* I will still focus on fresh veggies, proper portion sizes, and non-processed food.
* From now on I’ll have one treat day a week. And a treat day isn’t a free for all. I’ll eat something delicious but I won’t stuff myself with a giant portion.
* I’ll continue to watch my intake of bread, pasta, and potatoes. I’m thinking starchy foods were one of my downfalls before starting this fitness journey.

I’m starting work tomorrow! I haven’t worked since before I got pregnant, over a year and a half ago, so I’m pretty nervous. I actually think it’ll be beneficial in terms of weight loss though. I’ll be spending a lot more time on my feet and I’ll be packing my lunch and snacks so I won’t be able to graze on whatever I please. I spent some time making veggie wraps to grab and go for work lunches and I’m planning to make some kale salad (an app recipe).

Day 15:
What I ate-
– two pieces of whole grain toast with natural PB and raw honey
– Kale Salad with Thai Ginger-Peanut Dressing
– kombucha
– two pieces of avocado toast
– Pumpkin Soup and Curried Carrots
– 1 slice of havarti cheese
– turmeric “golden milk”
What I did-
– rest
How I felt-
– reeeeeal sick of resting!!! I can’t believe my cold has gone on this long. And it feels worse everyday. Ugh. I can’t wait to feel normal again.
– I was feeding my kiddo some cheese and I just couldn’t resist 🙁 if it were cheddar or something it would’ve been no problem but I loooove havarti. Oh well, one slice of cheese in a 3 week span isn’t going to make a difference.
– weighed myself today, I was curious since I’ve been eating according to the meal plan plus some extra snacks (I need a bit more calories because I’m breastfeeding) and I haven’t worked out in over a week. I lost another 6 lbs?! I had to weigh myself twice because I couldn’t believe it. I’ve lost 12 lbs in 2 weeks and never felt hungry or deprived.
