Week 3 is in the books. It was a much tougher week than I expected even though I achieved a score (that I calculated) of 87%.
My week 3 goals were to limit my daily coffee to 2 K cups per day and add 2-3 green smoothies (for the week). In addition, to continue my week 2 goal (salad at every meal) and week 1 goal (80 ozs of water per day). I achieved 100% of the week 3 goals and I missed 1 salad (I think it was Tuesday – that was my blur day) and 1 day of water (Tuesday as well).
My observations on the past week:
- A tough week – everything felt a little harder this week. I don’t know if was incorporating all 3 goals in a cumulative fashion or just that this was ‘hump’ week of the transformation.
- A bit of upset stomach on Tuesday into Wednesday.
- Low energy pre-Wednesday workout – felt much better after the workout.
- Green Smoothies — I’m not a fan! – I’m sure part of it is I’m not eating fruit (under the guidance of a nutritionist) and I did put avocado (1/2 in it – which I love) – it was just too think – even after I re-blended it. I had my last one for lunch on Friday – and I found out I enjoy eating lunch over drinking it. I will leave the smoothies for now for my in a pinch breakfast. Just not for me on a regular basis.
Celebrate my Success: Not limiting my coffee this weekend – I won’t go crazy – but I’ll enjoy my morning cup of Joe even more!
