Time for week 3 update! Again, I am a little late with posting this (will be sharing week 4 on Monday!!) However…it’s taken some time to get organized after our holidays and back into the swing of things. Brent came down with the stomach flu as well and so we have been dealing with sickness as well. I am just going to jump right into things. The results of week 3 were a little disappointing however I can’t complain too much. I had just finished my period, was on holidays and indulging probably a bit more than I should be and I still maintained my weight loss thus far.
Monday July 15th
Breakfast: 2 small coffees with soy creamer and a maple walnut bliss ball and cherries

Dinner: Half a massive burrito bowl from The Pea Pod containing bulgar wheat, corn, peppers, cucumber, sweet potato, salsa, cashew sauce.
Today I drank lots of water, took all of my supplements and got in a long walk in morning.
Had another great blood sugar reading today 2 hours after breakfast. Going to keep going with this!
Tuesday July 16th
Well I had a crappy sleep and the dog was out of sorts which made for a long night and a long day today. I really make sure that I try and get a good sleep each night as well as keep my stress low – as I feel it plays an important role in my health and weight loss journey. Oh well..hopefully a better sleep tomorrow!
Breakfast: 2 coffees with soy creamer, one large banana with cherries. I drank lots of water and took my supplements.
Went on a 30 minute walk. Checked my blood sugar was good 1.5 hours after eating fruit (!!)
Snack: Veggie straws (addicting and processed)
Lunch : Leftover burrito bowl. I added more guacamole, Pico de Gallo and cashew sauce!
Snack: More cherries and lots of water
Sat out in the sunshine soaking up the Vitamin D.
Dinner: Dr Pragers veggie burger on an O dough vegan+ gluten free bun with ketchup, mustard and lettuce.
I must admit this was a nice change from salads. I know the big salads are best for me though.
Took the dog two longer walks this evening she was being stubborn and not pooping – good exercise for me though!
Wednesday July 17th
Breakfast: 2 coffees with silk soy coffee cream
Oatmeal with coconut milk, cinnamon and honey and a bowl of cherries

Dinner: Leftovers. I had two flat out wraps with beans, Pico, lettuce, guacamole and cashew sauce.
Everything homemade that I brought here is now finished. Everything Lasted 7 days so I would call that a win!

Went to the beach for a few hours today. I love swimming in the lake. It’s so refreshing and calming. Although I applied and reapplied sunscreen, I still got burnt! Feeling good in a swim shirt and shorts! I used to hide in cover ups and refuse to have my picture taken. Life is short my friends. Wear the swim suit, get your photos taken!

Weight Loss Results/Photos
SW: 265 September
SW at Day one of Plant Based journey: 250
I did not lose weight this week however I maintained the loss. I’m not really surprised as I indulged quite a bit this past week. However, I continue to see physical changes in my body, energy levels and how my clothing fit. These jeggings would not go over my butt last year and now I can pull them up past my belly button! I feel great and looking forward to continuing this journey!
