Weight Loss Wednesday: Weeks 3 & 4

The thing I enjoy most about this blog series is that you guys get to come on my weight loss journey with me, not only through the successes but also the trials and tribulations. I had to take a few weeks off due to personal circumstances but am back to losing weight again now, and have been amping up my nutrition!

Weight lost altogether: 4lbs

Food
I thought if I'm going to do it, I'm going to do it right, so I invested in a food processor and blender as well as some nutritious cooking books. Deliciously Ella has become my inspiration, and whilst I've not eaten quite as healthily as her, I have focused massively on ensuring I eat a more wholefood, plant-based diet with absolutely tons of nutrition for my body. And it's far easier than it sounds too!

I've been replacing sugar with honey, looking for lower-fat alternatives of things like cheese and houmous, and eating very little processed food. I ordered a bulk of healthy ingredients and snacks from Holland & Barrett and have been trying my hand at healthy baking, knocking up some super healthy granola bars with no processed ingredients and with tons of protein and fiber! I've also cut down hugely on meat, only really eating small amounts of poultry here and there, and making healthier alternatives to classic favourites like lasagne made with vegetables and Quark!.

The thing that's made the biggest difference, though, is that I've been blending up a healthy smoothie for my breakfast every morning. I fill them with fresh fruit (or frozen) and coconut milk, and often add healthy additions like protein, hemp, baobab powder, chia seeds and kale. This sets me up for the day, leaving me feeling ready for anything and is full of energy, protein and fiber. I'd highly recommend a morning smoothie, guys, seriously!

Exercise
I started running! I've only been a few times but I really have found it gets easier each time. I downloaded the RunKeeper app which tracks everything I do, and on each run I have managed to run for longer and with less stops than the time before, so I know I'm making progress. The first run was absolutely awful and I was in so much pain, but I felt to pleased with myself afterwards that I went again. I really want to keep this up!

Weight Loss Tip of the Week
Plan ahead! I find that planning my meals for the day and inputting them in my app (MyFitnessPal) ensures that I stay on track and don't overeat. Once I enter my meals for the day into the app, I know how many calories I have left for healthy snacks and treats!

Next Week's Goal
Amp up the exercise! I'm aiming to make running a part of my regular routine; wish me luck!

I'll get back to giving you healthy recipes next week :)
How did you do this week?

Click on the photo to see their IWCs in their accustomed habitat, but be warned it is all in Japanese. You can see the subdials actual acutely on that photo and see area they alter from the replica. While there are faults, as with added replicas, I do not anticipate they are abundant to swiss omega about-face me off this watch. I would check, though, afore you buy one that it has the fake rolex watches actual white easily on the subdials as this is allegedly a contempo fix. Older models accept argent easily that are incorrect.
