Reset Challenge Recap from week 3

Last week was so busy that I did not even have the time to blog about my week. There were days that I wanted to eat and eat but I did not. My weight loss was not as good as I would have liked to lose more but that is ok. I know that sometimes our bodies slow down some in weight loss and then they will go back to the weight loss we are used to. I also know that stress had an impact on my weight loss. I did not lose as much but I was also super stressed out with work so the fact that I did not gain a large amount of weight over the week is also a good thing. I also noticed that I did not choose to eat the bad things like candy when I was stressed.

What about you? Are you having struggles with losing weight? Is it because you made poor decisions while stressed or has the stress just stopped you? Just some thoughts….

Reset Challenge Week 2

So this week I started week 2 of the Reset Challenge. I have now been using the USANA products now for one month. So what did the journey look like this week? Did I keep losing weight now that I have added back in regular food one time a day?

So starting my week with Monday, first thing I noticed, my workout felt better. For those that do not know, I am a crossfitter, so monday when I saw air squats and pull ups I was a little worried to start. But then I started to do the air squats and something crazy happened, my hip joints did not hurt at all and I was able to move a lot faster that I normally do. I was excited because that NEVER happens for me. Then I go to do pull ups with my red band (one of the strongest bands) and for some reason I was able to do them without too much effort, definitely not like before. When I finished the rest of the workout I felt good and I thought maybe I did not go as intense as I should have. Then I touched the top of my head and my hair was dripping with sweat. I did my second workout that evening and it felt good and I was very happy. I thought if this is the new normal than I am in!!!

I stuck with it all week and learned a few things about myself. First as much as I like coffee on days when I drink coffee I need to make sure I drink enough water because otherwise my weight loss is poor or I have a slight gain. I have changed the order I am eating because my workout schedule and work schedule is different than most. So at the end of the week did I lose weight? Yep I sure did I lost 1.8 pounds this week and I have lost 7% of my body weight total. Any questions feel free to message me or comment to ask away,
