Almost another full pound GONE- POOF! Lowest weight since starting 19 days ago AND I SURVIVED THE HOLIDAY FOOD BINGE!
The countdown to year 53 of my life begins… same age as JLo, but not yet as fit. I am still super pleased with my progress!!
Between my L’BRI skincare and this weight loss program I WILL BE A HOT MAMA BY MY 53RD BIRTHDAY IN FEBRUARY! The weight (knock wood) is just melting off.
NOW FOR THE BEST PART (insert drumroll)…
MY RESTING HEART RATE IS 65!! That is down from over 70 (and 78 a month prior)!! I suffer from tachycardia, high blood pressure, and a host of autoimmune issues and blood clotting issues. Staying alive is my ultimate goal.
I am noticing a huge decline in belly fat on this diet, even though I haven’t yet done more than rebounding for exercise.
Cravings simply DO NOT EXIST. I eat too often for hunger. This is like magic- the easiest diet I’ve ever been on!
RESTING HEART RATE:65 12,106 steps 34 min cardio

Woke up another pound gone… I have never, ever NOT gained weight during the holiday season! I.LOVE.THIS.PROGRAM.
I will be 53 in February and I am SO happy in my own skin now, thanks to L’BRI. I marvel over how I am able to eat so much and so often and still drop weight. Yes, I use the rebounder and fitbit… no, I haven’t yet done my yoga nor weights- I still have to add those in, but enjoying the peace and quiet of the holiday season.
What happens at Xmas stays at Xmas, but I didn’t successfully keep to plan. I ended up sick as a result and today is the day of reckoning and relaxation and self-forgiveness.
My house currently looks like Harry Potter threw up in it. The kiddo is OBSESSED. I am doing a surprise redecorating of her bedroom. Bought almost everything on here today (from Pottery Barn’s site).
Her bedroom is not as big as this in the little house, so we will do what we can… At my other house, this would be doable, but it’s currently being used as an office by family members staying there and working remotely. I like this little house so much. It’s so cozy.
Tonight’s lean and green consisted of sous vide grass-fed sirloin, veggies, and eggplant rollatini leftovers from Xmas eve at R’s parents.
Resting Heart Rate: 71 (alcohol made it jump up A LOT… won’t be doing that for a long while) Morning Weight: IDK 2,932 steps 2 min cardio 96 oz of water
12:00 pm- 1st fueling: CARAMEL DELIGHT CRISP BAR AND COFFEE
HIT THE 2 WEEK MARK WITH A BIG DROP IN WEIGHT! I am over the moon.
The starting weight from the week before was 179.
If I use the weight from the week before I began the diet (because I was terrified to step on the scale on the first day), I’ve lost 9 lbs in 2 weeks!!!
It was been sooo easy. I am looking forward to continuing to lose weight, despite the challenges of the holiday season. I *WILL* lose the pandemic and baby weight finally and for good. Honestly, this is the easiest diet I’ve ever tried.
If you are interested in trying this, I will give you my referral to my coach for a health assessment.
Now for my embarrassing before/afters:
Resting Heart Rate: 67 Morning Weight: 170.2!! I feel like this is actually fat loss now and not as much water… I actually measure inches thinner all over!! 12,100 steps 49 min cardio 96 oz or more of water
10:00 am- 1st fueling: CAMPFIRE SMORES BAR AND COFFEE
I forgot to pack my fuelings when I went to finish some last minute shopping and screwed up my entire day- but it was fine by the next day (though I was freaking out worried on day 13). We went to Costco and I brought home a rotisserie chicken. I sat while the others had their Costco hot dogs, I really wasn’t hungry.
Missing the 4th fueling made me RAVENOUS when I arrived home, though.
I will NEVER, EVER FORGET TO PACK MY MEALS WHEN I LEAVE THE HOUSE AGAIN!
OK, NOW FOR MY STATS OF THE DAY:
Resting Heart Rate: 66 Morning Weight: 171.7 12,161 steps 28 minutes cardio 90 oz or more of water
10:43 am- 1st fueling: HONEY CHILI CRANBERRY NUT BAR AND COFFEE
When I woke up I felt like crud today, too. Headache in front of the head, but less severe than yesterday. General lethargy (again, less than yesterday). I will do a covid swab today. I have the home tests on my shelf. I just need the energy to get to the shelf. I am not usually prone to headaches or migraines.
I do notice a tickle in my throat, no other cold symptoms. I snore, so scratchy throats in the morning aren’t a bit deal.
I’ve been pushing through with rebounding and steps, but just the minimum to keep the aches and pains away. It also helps my breathing immensely. My body pain is the only thing that has gone away so far, which leads me to continue to believe that this was just an immune system freakout. I have covid long hauler stuff on top of it, so who knows?
As the day wore on, my symptoms went away and my swab was NEGATIVE!
I had a lot of work to catch up on, so my workouts suffered, but I still got my steps in. I am pretty happy with this diet so far… so much so that I will be probably leaving my coach’s link (when I can find it) on this blog from now on, apparently I get some sort of referral credits. I am not quite sure how that works yet.
Dinner was an easy chicken pho style soup with Miracle Noodles and herbs and avocado as garnish. Sometimes a proper soup is all a body needs when you’re feeling off-kilter.
OK, NOW FOR MY STATS OF THE DAY:
Resting Heart Rate: 68 Morning Weight: not weighing today. I felt yucky and tired. Had to eat first and I only weigh first thing in the morning before weigh-in usually. 12,328 steps 35 min cardio 90 oz or more of water
11:00 am- 1st fueling: HONEY MUSTARD AND ONION STICKS AND COFFEE
