Weight Loss: Week 2
Happy Weight Loss Wednesday friends! First of all, I just wanted to say thank you for the overwhelming response from last week's post. I received so many motivational emails, texts, calls, and comments - you guys are the best! Second, I wanted to clarify that the picture from last week was an older picture, more of an aspiration shot if you will... I know some people were concerned that I wanted to lose 40 pounds from that photo, but that would make me 90 pounds, so no thanks! I wanted to share a more accurate photo (shown above) and share this week's favorites. So lets get started!
Week 2 Favorite Warm-Up: "Medium Resistance Snapchat Ride" - I'm not sure about you guys, but the more people I add on Snapchat, the longer my "feed" is and at times it can be between 15 minutes and 30 minutes long. I've found that rather than waste time checking it during the day, I set aside my "Snapchat time" for my warm-up in the evening. I set my resistance to between 9 and 12 on the stationary bike and ride until my Snapchat feed finishes. I usually burn between 125 and 150 calories. I then proceed to the circuit that I shared last week, followed by 3o minutes on the treadmill.
Week 2 Favorite Snack: Watermelon Mint & Cucumber Salad - I found this needle in a haystack at Warped Tour (there were slim pickings for healthy options ) and fell in love with the refreshing flavor combination.
Week 2 Recipe I Want to Try:Baked Eggs in Prosciutto-Hash Brown Cups - I make a similar breakfast to this every morning (1 Over Easy Egg with a McCrum Organic Potato Cake = 170 calories), but this would be a fun recipe to try on the weekends and reheat during the work week!
Week 2 Athleisure Wish List Item:Adidas Logo Leggings (similar to the ones shown above)
Week 2 Weight Loss: 1 pound
Total Weight Loss: 3 pounds
