Dinner: Cheeseburger from BurgerFi at a dinner date with my husband

 

Sunday Workout

Iffy, possibly an evening walk

Sunday Eats so far

1 Kodiak cake waffle with whipped cream and PB

That’s a wrap! I took progress and I’m down another 2 lbs this week (down 4 lbs since the start in early June) but my body fat is being stubborn which is annoying me. If you notice in the list, some days I neglected snacks and went too long without eating so I’m tweaking that this week. I’m going to make sure to eat on time so I stay fueled, drink more water (I wasn’t drinking as much this week as last) and I’ll be doing more HIIT workouts along with a 5 day workout challenge my friend sent me. Hoping for a happy and productive week ahead for you all!

Questions, what was on the menu for you this week? Any new workouts you tried? Let us know below!
