Post-Pregnancy Weight Loss: Wk 3

This past week was the perfect example of what NOT to do when trying to lose weight. Let me just start with my excuses before I get into the details of my progress. First, I’ve been trying to find things that work for me like meal plans and smoothie recipes (not even close to a good excuse). The other is that because of Hurricane Matthew coming through, our schools were shut down for evacuaees to use as shelter. We were out for 3 days plus the weekend! That’s 5 whole days of a much needed break! So what did I do during that time? Definitely not working out!!! It would have been the PERFECT time to get massive workouts in, but I chose to be LAZY and lay around and play with the baby and spend time with the hubby. So, still not the best excuse to skip out on my weight loss challenge, but the time I spent with my little family was MUCH NEEDED, and I must say, worth it.

Now I wouldn’t encourage this if you are the type to take a break and NEVER get back to it until years later!!! I’m depending on you all to keep me accountable and motivated!! I did two workouts in week 3 and managed to find lots of smoothie recipes! I also started meal prepping! I prepped my meals for this week which makes life easier for me when coming home from a busy day with middle schoolers to a super active 7 month old that always wants ALL of my attention (especially since he hadn’t seen me ALL day!). I’m also getting back into drinking more water. I’m excited to see how week 4 is going to turn out since I’m even more motivated and got meals under control (for the most part)!

Check out my progress for week 3 below! I have 8 more weeks to go!!!
