Haha, okay just kidding. During week 3, I definitely exercised more discipline and stayed closer to the diet restrictions than week 2. I splurged on the weekend and kept my 60+ minutes of cardio for 5 days this week.
I've lost 1 pound, since my last weigh in!
I know I need to make better decisions about what I eat and how much of it in order to stay under my calorie intake goal of 1200 calories a day. (Seriously, I blame the weekend on amazing Chinese food...again!) I have to admit, I didn't follow the daily meal instructions exactly from the Extreme Fat Smash Diet, but I've noticed that I've built a habit to eat 4 small meals a day alternating between the same couple meals that the diet requires and allowing around 3 cheat meals throughout the week.
Here are the foods I alternate between that pretty much sum up the entire diet:
Meal 1 - yogurt, oatmeal or cereal with one cup of coffee
Meal 2 - yogurt, fruit, smoothie, or small salad
Meal 3 - chicken or fish, vegetables, brown rice, or chickpeas (two items each meal)
Meal 4 - chicken or fish, vegetables, brown rice, or chickpeas (two items each meal)
Workout - 60 minutes of cardio and some days adding 15 minutes of weight lifting
I definitely feel like I'm on the right track and know that my dream of losing 12 pounds in 3 weeks with my habits is completely unrealistic (a girl can dream, right?). But, I am hoping to stay on the right track and reach my weight loss goal of 10 pounds by the end of May - averaging 1 pound a week.
Update y'all next week!
