Update: 30 Day Personal Challenge



                  Today is the last day of my personal 30 day shake challenge.
                 The plan was to drink two shakes a day, one meal, two snacks and 2 mango teas a day.  Week 1 was pretty easy but by day 4 drinking two shakes, two snacks and a meal was too much for me so day 5 through day 15 I went down to one shake, one snack and 1 meal a day.  By day 15 I think my body was used to the mostly liquid diet.
               Day 16 through 29 I alternated between one to two shakes depending on my hunger levels.  It was pretty challenging but I would definitely do it again.  With exercising 3 times a week I lost a total of 5 pounds, I like the idea of drinking a shake for breakfast, it is a easy solution for the mornings.



                  Left, day 1. Right, day 25

I'm Back!!! 30 Day Personal Weightloss Challenge







Hi!
   
                 It has been forever but sometimes you need a little social media hiatus but I am back and still living a clean life.


                 So Sunday I started a 30 day personal challenge, I have been going to a fit camp for a couple months and I have seen pictures of some of the women who are apart of this particular group and you can definitely see the transformations their bodies have gone through.
                I decided to try out the plan they have for weightloss which is 2 Herbalife shakes, I add my own protein just for a extra boost, 2 snacks and one healthy meal a day for weightloss, I have also been drinking the teas once or twice a day.  I have been trying to eat healthy and exercise regularly since the beginning of the year and have really been motivated to change the way I look at food.  I am human like everyone else so there has definitely been some setbacks but along the way I have loss weight and have kept it off (yasss for exercise and veggies haha) I thought I would give this a go just to prove to myself I could.
                 It has only been 4 days counting today and I don't have a need to binge on anything unhealthy, the shakes definitely keep me full.  Yesterday was a little hard for me though, I was bloated most of the day and had no appetite but today is better.  I find that I am urinating a lot which am not use to even though I always make sure I drink atleast 64 ounces of water per day.  I don't think I will have a problem sticking to this for the next 26 days, it is a lot easier than it seems.
                  Thanks for reading.  I will try to post weekly updates on the blog but if want a day to day look come check me out on Snapchat at lolak_fashion and Instagram at lolakgetsfit.

Meal Prep Sunday

   



Hi and welcome back!!!

On Sunday I decided to meal prep for the week, I find it easier for me to eat right if I have food prepared.  I'm not really a fan of leftovers so to make sure I didn't get burned out I made three different entrees.  Because I only cook for myself it usually takes one hour or less.  This week I made sauteed shrimp, beef with peppers and stuffed flounder.  For the sides I made steamed spinach, steamed broccoli, roasted sweet potatoes and brown rice.  I alternate between salads and my meals I cooked for lunch and dinner.  I kept my portions pretty small and daily for breakfast I eat turkey bacon or crumbles with egg whites in either  an omelette, scrambled or on a whole grain english muffin with peppers and half an orange.   I eat 5 times a day, breakfast, lunch and dinner and 2 snacks.  I try to stay hydrated so I make to drink at least a gallon of water daily.  Next time on the blog I will share some of my fave recipes.

New Beginnings





         Yesterday I started on my journey to a healthier me, it was truly hard.  I ended up eating chips later on in the day but I am not going to fault myself for any missteps.  Today I did so much better.  I worked out by walking 30 minutes and utilized my place and ran up and doewn the stairs 10 times.  As long as I push through and try everyday I have nothing to feel guilty for.  This journey is not something I plan on taking lightly and everyday I will push myself and hold "me" accountable.
