Ladies and Gentlemen. I have finished week 2 and it was a challenging week. Mostly because life was very, very hectic. My husband was traveling, one of our kids had a birthday, we had two sick kids and life threw us some lemons. But no excuses, I lost 2.6 pounds this week and 7.8 pounds in two weeks! I’m pretty happy with this because we all usually lose more in our first week of shifting eating and exercising and we gradually move to a healthy number of pounds lost per week (which is usually 1-2 pounds). I am wondering if I clean up my diet even more next week and exercise hard, hard, hard if I will be able to see a little more progression — but this would be more of a personal experiment — losing 2.6 pounds in one week is pretty stellar.
Here are my measurements for the week:
My food journal is here and you will see that I followed my clean eating rules BUT I was probably 70% clean and 30% not-clean — which leaves much room for improvement. But, that is real life — we can’t be perfect all of the time, and we shouldn’t expect that from ourselves.
Luckily, I still managed to get all of my exercising in!
Things to work on for this week:
- Eating more regularly
- Getting all of my water in
- Having fewer glasses of wine
- Make every workout count!

In January 2013 I realized I needed to do something to improve my health. I spent 2012 on maternity leave and often neglected taking care of my own health (sleepless nights and caring for a tiny human will do that!). Not to mention the many years before that where health was at the bottom of my list of priorities. Luckily, I discovered Lisa's 30 day green smoothie challenge. The recipes were incredible and a green smoothie drinker was born! But I didn't stop there. Starting each day in such a healthy way led me to consult with a naturopath (it would have been Lisa if we were in the same city), do an elimination diet, and discover that I have sensitivities to wheat and milk. I changed to a whole foods-based diet (most of the time) and took up running. In the span of 8.5 months I went from being tired and sluggish on the couch (literally - I could run for one minute at a time before having to walk) to having enough energy to run the Detroit International Half Marathon. I actually RAN the whole thing! And I lost almost 60lbs along the way! Thank you, Lisa, for being my catalyst. Your challenge kept me interested in a new way of living and saved me! I continue to drink a green smoothie every day for breakfast. What a wonderful way to start each day!
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
