Week #3 officially started Tuesday, so I am a little behind on posting the update. Here we go! Week #2 wasn't as productive as I would have liked it to be. I only lost .9 lbs bringing my total weightloss to 6.4. I believe this was due to a number of factors. One, there was two days last week that i fell "out the box". I had a handful of cashews, which although calorie wise are bad, fat wise they are, and the salt retains water. I will not do this again.....not worth the non-loss of weight. Two, I tripled my PA(physical activity), before this program, I had one day of dance class. Now added to the day of dance class is at least 4 days of moderate intensisity walking. So the added muscle as weight. Three, it was a water retaining week of the month.
Forgeting my days out of the box, I did managed to make it 6 days meeting my minimun prescription of HMR foods. The one day that I didn't was a day of working from home and I was really busy. I made up the missed two shakes throughout the week with the pudding, so i did end up with my minimun prescription for the week.
The HMR coach has challenged me to have at some PA everyday of the week. So far I haven't done it. I had the dance PA on tuesday but no PA yesterday. But I am going to attempt to get some in rest of the week. I am also challenging myself to stay in the box all week. That barely one pound loss was not worth the cashews.
