90 day challenge update

Today is the 30th day of my 90 days challenge. I’m really happy about the results and my progress. I’m determined in my weight loss journey and I’m not nearly half of it. There has been a lot of changes with me not only physically but mentally. I’ve learned a lot of things and new habits.

Workout:

Boxing in Elorde Lipa twice a week, on Wed. night and Sun. morning.

Week 1

- My body feels really sore because it’s been a long time since I’ve done workouts and also due to my recent surgery last December 2016. No complaints with the food, I can still resist.

Week 2

- Having a hard time with the diet that I’m doing and I don’t know if it’s really good for me or what I’m eating is bad.

Week 3

- Getting used to my weekly schedule of workout and trying to cook food which I was surprised too that I’m really cooking.

Week 4

- Everything seems to be a normal routine by now. As much as possible, I change the food I eat on a weekly basis to keep me sane. In the first two weeks that I’ve been dieting, I’m eating the same food everyday and can be really boring. All my food intake are logged into myfitnesspal.com or the mobile app.

Here’s what I usually eat in week 1 and 2:

Breakfast

  • Option 1: 40g of Oatmeal (Original or the instant oatmeal with banana) with Banana
  • Option 2: 1 ½ boiled sweet potato with cinnamon

Lunch

  • Option 1: 1 ½ boiled sweet potato with cinnamon and 1 can of century tuna (Hot and spicy)
  • Option 2: 1 ½ boiled sweet potato with cinnamon and 1 hard boiled egg

Dinner

  • Option 2: 1 ½ boiled sweet potato with cinnamon

By week 3, I started to do youtube research on meal preps recipes that are healthy and easy to cook. I try to find meal preps that has protein, carbs and low fat. When I found a recipe I could try, I went to the grocery to buy the ingredients and started cooking food which are good for 5–7 days.

Here’s what I eat in week 3:

Breakfast

  • 30–60g of Oatmeal (Original or the instant oatmeal with banana) with Banana

In case you are wondering about my weight loss results, here’s the details:

30 days of my daily weight

Daily weight

There are days where my weight does not really move and it’s somewhat frustrating at first because I might be in a weight loss plateau. But soon after, my weight really dropped 3–4lbs in a day. I just need to stick into my diet and make my workout more intense. By now, I get compliments from office mates, friends and relatives that I’ve gotten really slim. Also, I’m encouraging my cousins to do the same. Maybe I’ll do some meal prep blogs sometimes for those who want to try. Advice?

  • Find a schedule for a workout and stick to it no matter what. Learn to say no if someone invites you somewhere and focus on workout.
  • Research good recipes to try and cook to keep you sane.
  • Cheat days? Its good but always stay at your limit and consider the macros food you are eating.
  • Log the food you are eating in myfitnesspal.com
  • Resist to tempations
  • Find food alternatives like if you want sweets then go get fruits or put a bit of cinnamon
  • Weigh less and eat more.
