Progress! Slow and steady.

Hey everyone! I’m back to give some updates on my weight loss progress.

I’ve been doing CrossFit for about 3 months now and I’ve probably lost about 5lbs. Not a significant loss, but I’ve slimmed down A LOT. My clothes are starting to fall off my body, especially around my waist. And I’m LOVING IT! Here is a picture of me at the exact same weight, about 9 weeks in between pictures.

In both pictures I am 170lbs. This is exactly why the scale doesn’t necessarily matter. While I am gaining muscle and losing fat, I am slimming up so my weight stayed the same. But even though I haven’t lost weight in this picture, I FEEL better and healthier!

Since this picture 2-3 weeks ago, I’ve lost another 3 lbs.

My routine lately as been to go to CrossFit 4 days a week, and after each class take a mile jog. It’s definitely tough, but I need the rest of this fat to fall off me! That can only happen with hard work and dedication.

I have a long way to go still, but I know I will get there!

I Can Bench 110 lbs!

UPDATE! I am now benching 110 lbs!! BOOYAH!

So I stepped on the scale yesterday and I lost another pound. That brings me to 175.5. My first goal is to get below 170! I feel like it’s taking a freaking eternity to get through the 170s and I’m stuck in limbo, but I’ll get there eventually. It’s so frustrating to not see faster progress but I have to remember that it took 8 years for me to get this heavy so I’m not going to become a 130lb. goddess overnight!

I have come to the conclusion that the only way I’m going to lose weight faster is if I change the way I eat. I need to eat more fruits and veggies, eat healthy snacks throughout the day and eat healthy lunches and dinners. I think right now I eat okay if I was to maintain my weight. I don’t stuff my face with fatty goodness like burgers, fries, burritos, chips (all the yummy foods) but I do need to eat more healthy. I indulge every now and then. Maybe once every 2 or 3 weeks? But I definitely don’t go crazy with food. I literally can’t eat like that anymore!

Time to start cooking and pre-making meals! Yay… (can you feel my sarcasm?)

Egg “Cupcakes” Recipe

I made some egg cupcakes last night! It’s so easy.

  1. Scramble some eggs. The number of eggs equal to the number of cupcakes you want to make. I made 6.
  2. Pour eggs into a well greased cupcake pan. No need for the cupcake liners, just pour directly into the pan.
  3. Add your ingredients. I did baby spinach, tomato, and cheddar cheese. I may add sausage next time! Push/mix it into the egg so it’s not just sitting on top.
  4. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes!  Don’t be alarmed if the cupcakes come out of the oven super puffed and high! They WILL shrink as they cool 🙂 I wasn’t told this when I tried this recipe and kind of freaked out because I thought they came out wrong.
  5. Eat!

Super healthy and easy to make! Easy for a grab and go breakfast in the morning! Warm in the microwave for about 30 seconds 🙂 I will be making this again!
