Can you lose 20 pounds in 12 weeks? This woman did!

Portland  3 Month Weight Loss Journey {Week 4}

Hey Farm to Fitters!

I rolled into this past week feeling ‘not great’. I was fighting off a bug and I just didn’t have the energy I’ve had the last few weeks. Long story short, I didn’t make it to the gym much (just once), I took it easy and luckily fought off whatever was trying to creep on.

This is probably where you expect me to tell you that because of all of this, I didn’t lose any weight. But you would be wrong! I lost another pound this week, which sort of surprised me since I simply didn’t do much for exercise. It was a true test of Farm to Fit working all on its own (they clearly passed).

Struggles?

  • Lower energy and not feeling well early in the week made me a lazy exerciser (not ideal).
  • And the other struggle?? EGGNOG!
  • Holiday Wine and Cheese party. This was a struggle and a triumph. I went, had a glass of wine and a few snacks and then I left. My body is saying “no thank you” to the red wine (crazy awesome!)

Triumphs

  • I lost another pound!
  • I find myself wanting to buy new clothes even though I’m not even 25% to my BIG goal yet.
  • I’m hopeful that I can make it through Thanksgiving without gaining weight (if all I do is ‘maintain’ this coming week…that would be good!)

This week is Thanksgiving and I have my family in town. We usually eat out a lot and drink more than I usually do. I ordered almost ALL my meals from Farm to Fit this week which will make things way easier…but I’m not kidding myself, it will be difficult not to splurge a little. So I will splurge a little AND I’ll work out extra hard this week to stay on track, just in case I get a little carried away 😉
