Our Monthly Weightloss Report

Challenges: This month wasn't much of a success but I did accomplish a few things from my checklist. I plan to accomplish all my goals for the month of April. I DEMAND CHANGE!!!!

Accomplishments: Im really surprised that I overcame a few things in the past month; the things that I accomplished were;
  • Overcame Late night munchies
  • Spinning for the 2nd time
  • Became a frequent vistor at my local YMCA
  • Completed Meatless Mondays with Daisy
Peak: My intake of Vegetables and Fruit improved tremendously! Especially because of my love making smoothies!

Pit: Not accomplishing everthing on my goal list; they were... 
  • Losing a total of 10 lbs (2 lbs per week)
  • Trying out the Sauna at my Gym
Stats: Unfortunately, I dont have any stats to share, I have yet to measure! ughh I guess I will have to make that one of my goals for the month.

Goals for April: This month I have a few goals in mind, they are;
o   Continue to workout for 3x a week
o   Continue to get more protein in my diet
o   Try a new healthy recipe
o   Stay within a 1200-1300 caloric diet 
o   Get Body Measurements
Hey girls hey! I hope March was productive for you all and if it wasn't thank goodness for yet another chance to do better. We must always remember that everyday is a new day to make a difference in our lives. So I'm encouraging you all to access your March and see what you accomplished, what you wished you did, and make some new goals! Give yourself a reason to keep pushing forward because if you don't no one else will. 

I also want to take the time to thank the 5 new followers we've gained and welcome you to the Fit, Fab, Fierce family! You all make our days brighter with your feedback on posts. I totally appreciate it.

Challenges: This month my menstrual cycle came back to me with a vengeance like no other before! I mean, I'm shocked that I gained a total of 5lbs from it in one week. I usually average between a 2-3lb gain when I'm on my menstrual. But needless to say, the gain really shook me up and I kind of lost ammunition when the weight wouldn't shed will I was pushing in 3 workouts a week! It baffled the hell out of me indeed.

Another challenge was going to visit my parents on the weekend and completely going off track. They have all the junk food in the world and I caved in like 260lb Daisy! I have to make it my business to track on the weekends that I'm home because those 3 days can jeopardize a whole weeks worth of hard work!

Well my goals for March were to:
  • Lose at least -5 lbs.  
  • Try out pilates class.  
I can't believe I really got all of this done plus more. I even accomplished running on the treadmill for 4 minutes straight! I remember the first time I ran for a minute and thought I would die. I have it in me to succeed just like those contestants on the biggest loser who really push their bodies to the limit. If they can do it, so can I!

Peak: Going an entire week without frozen/TV dinners and eating home cooked meals. This experience taught me that I have it in me to prepare fresh meals daily while making the right choices! Usually, I think I MUST have a TV dinner twice a week to keep me on track but this time around I didn't need it and I succeeded in keeping on track plus I even had Chinese takeout! Yay!

Pit: Recognizing & Admitting how self-conscious I've been feeling lately (ie. My Fat Girl Complex). You can read a bit more about that hereLosing -5lbs but still being at the same starting point I entered in the beginning of the year. I can't be too mad because I have achieved, sometimes we have to back track a little to get back on course!
