Preparing for Week 4

Hiiiiii! How excited are you to complete a whole month of being healthy?? I can’t wait! I have seriously made so much progress already. It will be exciting to see how much my life changes after the full year. Let’s start Preparing for Week 4!

Preparing for Week 4

Now, let’s start getting ready for this week. This week I challenge you to push yourself even harder. Look at your week one measurements and then your week three measurements. Make a goal to lose even more weight. Then plan a treat for yourself if you meet that goal. Like buy yourself a new shirt or some makeup. One suggestion, don’t treat yourself with food. Your not a dog! Your goal doesn’t even have to be about losing weight. It could be about shaving some time off your run or even doing more weight during the circuit workout.

Another good idea would be to make a goal to make better food choices. Let’s say, you notice that you give into some cravings a few times a week. Cut that down to only one or two times a week. If you can do that, treat yourself with a new pair of shoes or some running shorts.

My goal this week will be to lose another .5 pounds. I want to lose weight healthy so I don’t want to lose weight too quickly. I’ve already lost 3.4 pounds over the last three weeks! YAY ME!

Here’s how I am going to achieve my goal…

Meal Plans

As promised in my email, here are the recipes that I will be using this week.

Monday – Turkey Taco Bowls (seriously my favorite meal EVER!) recipe by Together as a Family

Tuesday – Crispy Sheet Pan Lemon Parmesan Garlic Chicken and Veggies recipe by Karina on Cafe Delites

Wednesday –Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet by Olivia on Primavera Kitchen

Thursday –Gluten Free Cashew Chicken and Rice recipe by Sarah on A Saucy Kitchen

Friday – Healthy Crock Pot Italian Tortellini Soup by Jamie on Adventures of a Shrinking Princess

Saturday -Left Overs/ Eat out (make a healthy choice)

Sunday – Healthy Baked Chicken Parmesan recipe by Tiffany on Le Creme De La Crumb

Snack – Banana Nut Bread Granola Bars recipe by Brianne from Cupcakes & Kale

*I am keeping this recipe in case you need to make another batch for this coming week. I didn’t include the ingredients on the shopping list. So be sure to add the ingredients that you will need to the shopping list this week.

If you find other good healthy recipes , please share! I am always looking for something new and delicious!

Yoga Routine

This week I have found a yoga routine that I am going to try this week. It is easy to use and has video’s of each pose to help you if you are a beginner.

Yoga is great for strengthening and stretching muscles. It is a great whole body workout that also helps you increase your flexibility. You will need a yoga mat and I suggest having a yoga block. It will help you modify poses that you aren’t quite ready to perform fully. I still use a yoga block, no shame!

Progress not Perfection

Before you start the week, look back at your measurements from previous weeks. It should give you a little extra motivation! I can’t believe how much my body (and confidence) has changed already! Check out my progress!!!

The trick to staying on track is being prepared. So take some time today to go grocery shopping, get your eggs boiled, make up your snacks, and do your measurements for the beginning of week 4. Make sure that you are completely ready to prevent yourself from coming up with excuses to not stay on track! You’ve got this! Almost one month down! Look how far you’ve already come!

Today I will be going out and getting more protein and amino energy. I may treat myself to a new blender bottle since I’ve already lost 3.4 pounds. I think that’s pretty great for only 3 weeks! Now, let’s see if I can meet my new goal for this week!

What’s your goal this week?
