23andme Weight Loss Study | Week 3

Week 3

Holy cow this week has flown by! Seriously it was one good thing after the other all week and it just didn’t let up! Truthfully, I couldn’t be happier!

Seriously … I felt like a million bucks this past week. Was the reason weight loss? No. I was just in my awesome bubble almost every-single-day. Like wake up and open my eyes in bed and instantly feel rested, happy and ready to take on the day {golly jeepers}! The kind of happy where someone says something totally and completely irrational to you but you’re feeling so awesome that it doesn’t matter. Bring-it-on because my world is sunshine, lollipops, rainbows and everything is wonderful!  Yeah, it’s been like this for an entire week. It feels so good, I don’t want it to end!

Ok, enough about that.

So in addition to being in my awesome bubble this past week, I was also so hungry you guys! The kind of hungry that is hard to ignore. The truth is… even if I wasn’t on a weight loss plan I’d still be hungry. I didn’t gain thank goodness, because my halo slipped again and I did cheat. Not the super bad kind of cheat though. It was the middle of the road kind of cheat. I had movie theater popcorn one day because duh, I was at the movies with my friend. We went to see “I Tonya”, it was worth every penny…I recommend you see it.  Then another day I just said… well I can’t say it on the blog but I basically said “bleep it” and ate more yogurt and pistachios. I know, I’m a real risk taker, lol. Oh, and dark chocolate. I had 2 extra squares another day.

So my halo slipped a little bit {again} and I only lost another 2 pounds this past week and I’m totally ok with that. So I didn’t stay on the straight and narrow and I still lost a little bit…so I consider that a success. Hopefully there is someone reading that can relate. I want you guys to understand where I’m at each week and how it’s playing a role in my weight loss and success. You guys don’t mind, do you?

23andme Weight Loss Study | Week 3

So, once a week 23andme sends me an email to log on and take a quick survey and report my progress.  It usually takes about 5 minutes to complete and so far the questions every week are fairly basic.  Questions like: did you stick to the plan? How closely did you follow the plan?  Did you exercise?  etc.  Although, in addition to the survey questions this week, there was a message that they would have a personal trainer online to help answer workout questions.  Nope it wasn’t me…dang.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to to join the group discussion due to timing.  But, I hope to check it out next time.

My workouts have been going great!  I feel super fantastic after they are done.  Getting out the door has been what I’m struggling with, but once I’m there everything is great.  I guess I really have to push myself out of my awesome bubble to get there… and I’m not sure what that’s about.

True story… during my last workout I felt like spicing it up when I spied the big silver workout ball in the corner.  Nostalgia overcame my senses and I couldn’t resist pulling it out and using it as part of my workout.  I forgot how fun and versatile they are!

Perfect for pilates, yoga, crossfit or the hundreds of low impact exercises available.  The perfect addition to your home exercise equipment to improve your core and overall strength.  If you’ve always wanted to try one, you can find them on my Amazon store or if you click here !

So there you have it, I would love to chat!
