Happy Friday, dear reader! I am currently in Week #4 of the Fast Burn Challenge, and Dr. Ian’s words rang true for me at the start of this week. On Monday morning, I weighed in at 155.5 pounds. I lost another 2.5 pounds with a total loss of 6 pounds since I started the Fast Burn Challenge on 19 April. I am both proud and delighted with my progress, especially since this week’s weigh-in followed Mother’s Day weekend. My hubby and I took my parents out to lunch at Perrin’s Restaurant to celebrate my momma, and I am happy to report that I chose my meal wisely and absolutely enjoyed it. I ordered a Grilled Shrimp Wrap with Sweet Potato Fries. I ate half for lunch and the other half for dinner. Except for this meal, I followed all my guidelines outlined for that day. Planning ahead is the key!

Grilled Shrimp Wrap with Sweet Potato Fries

Kudos to Me for…

  • meeting my daily water intake goal.
  • meeting my TRF 14:10 goal.
  • continuing to eat more veggies.
  • meeting my daily exercise goals.
  • prepping most of my meals and snacks for the week.
  • choosing wisely when eating at a restaurant.

One of my favorite meals to eat is a veggie plate with a cup of brown rice. This veggie plate had sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts that I air fried. I sautéed the mushrooms and spinach in olive oil with minced garlic. For the brown rice, I buy a package of Minute Brown Rice that contains two microwaveable cups. Since I do not really enjoy cooking, this is one of the easiest, quickest, and tastiest meals to prepare.

Challenges

So far, I have NOT encountered any challenges this week. On Sunday, I created my weekly schedule which included attending the 8th Grade Graduation at my school on Wednesday night. Next, I scheduled all of my exercise for the week. Then, I planned all of my meals. Afterwards, I made my Burner Smoothies. I already had prepared food in the freezer from last week thanks to my sweet hubby, who also grilled me some carrots and broccoli. It is also terrific that three of the seven days called for plant-based meals. I happen to love salads, so prepping for this week was pretty easy. Again, planning is the key!

My Fast Burn journey continues to not only be exciting, but also enlightening. I am learning new ways to challenge myself physically through exercise. I am learning new ways to properly fuel my body. I am ultimately learning how to transition into a healthier way of living. Furthermore, I am not missing the sugar, processed foods, or that pregnant whale feeling that comes from overeating. Better choices make for a better me. Happiness!
