This week’s meal plan is really simple, I’m repeating almost all my meals between lunch and dinner because I just won’t have the time to cook everyday.

If you wondering why I’m eating so much Clementine it’s because they were on sale this week so that makes it my fruit of choice for the week.

My weight loss continues to be a struggle but I’m hanging in there…

Weight Loss Check In

It seems like it’s been a really long week, since my last check in anyways. I’ve been keeping pretty busy, with what seems like a million things to do everyday. I fell off the wagon last Friday and had a small bag of Lays chips and a box of chocolate milk and a cupcake…so disappointed! I have a serious love/hate relationship with food and I need to find a common ground somewhere. Other than that, I had an ok week, I upped my fruits and veggie intake and I’m also drinking more water.

I really didn’t lose anything this week, I’m at 151lbs even…I really need to step my game up. Hopefully next week I can report a loss of some sort.

For this week, I’ll be making green smoothies and replacing it with one of my meals (breakfast or lunch), and continuing to add more veggies to my eating plan. Incorporating more exercises into my day will be a challenge but I’ll have to make the necessary adjustments if I want to see results. The journey continues…

Weight Loss Check In

The last week has been very challenging for me, I’ve been extremely busy and haven’t been getting much sleep. With the lack dedication showing on the scale this week I know that I have to step my game up and make sure I make time to do what I need to do.

My results for this week:
151.2 lbs
35.9% body fat
54.2lbs fat mass

Needless to say, I’m not impressed with myself but, this is a learning process and I’m learning.

Weight Loss Check In

It’s been a fairly good week, I’ve been following a meal plan with a few hiccups, but I’m getting better. I’m down 1 pound this week, I know it’s not a lot but it’s better than nothing.

I’m also going to start doing Yoga again…this time at home. I’ve decided to cancel my gym membership since I hardly have time to go anymore. I’ll be creating an exercise plan much like my meal plan to get the best results. I’m also going to start walking again, I’ve realized that certain types of workouts just aren’t for me on a long term basis. I’ve realized that I do much better with the “slow and steady wins the race” mentality when it comes to my weight loss.

I’m really looking forward to the changes that are ahead.

Fish Taco

I had some Basa fish in the freezer that I had no idea what to do with, I really didn’t feel like eating it as is…I wanted to “spice” things up a bit. I decided I would try fish taco for the first time ever…and boy was it good!

After looking around online and finding out what the basics are for a good fish taco, I gathered up my ingredients and got to work.

To marinate the fish I used:
1/4 cup of oil (I didn’t have any olive oil on hand so I had to use vegetable oil)
2 tbsp distilled white vinegar
2 tbsp lime juice (you could also use lemon juice)
1 1/2 honey
1 tsp chili powder
1 tbsp fish seasoning
1 tsp sea salt
1 hole jalapeno pepper

I put the fish in a large freezer bag in the fridge for 30-60 minutes.

I broiled the fish on low for 14 mins, at least until it’s flaky. At about the 9 minute mark I took out the fish and drained off the water that had come out of the fish during the cooking process.

Contents for the dressing and toppings

For the dressing I mixed together:
Sour Cream
Juice from 1 lime
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 chili pepper thinly minced
Dash of sea salt

Toppings:
I used cabbage (I bought the coleslaw mix from the grocery store)
1 tomato
Green onion (optional)
I also used a little bit of cilantro…big mistake, I’m NOT a fan of cilantro and it tasted really yuck on my taco.

I used both the soft and hard taco shells, my son didn’t want the soft shells.
