Oh my goodness, I’m only 3.5 weeks away from 90 days. That’s terrifying from a goal standpoint, because I’m still 3 pounds away from my weight goal… but really exciting from a milestone standpoint! I’m so proud of myself for completely turning around my eating and exercise habits.

Week 2 Weigh-In: 133.8 lbs
Change over 1 week: +1.8 lbs
Change since beginning: +0.3 lbs

Week 3 Weigh-In: 131.5 lbs
Change over 1 week: -2.3 lbs
Change since beginning: -2 lbs

Week 4 Weigh-In: 130 lbs
Change over 1 week: -1.5 lbs
Change since beginning: -3.5 lbs

Week 5 Weigh-In: N/A (away for holiday; didn’t measure)

Week 6 Weigh-In: 131.5 lbs (just returned from holiday)
Change over 1 week: N/A
Change since beginning: -3.5 lbs

Week 7 Weigh-In: 128 lbs
Change over 1 week: -3.5 lbs
Change since beginning: -5.5 lbs

Week 8 Weigh-In: 127 lbs
Change over 1 week: -1 lb
Change since beginning: -6.5 lbs

Week 9 Weigh-In: 128 lbs
Change over 1 week: +1 lb
Change since beginning: -5.5 lbs

The numbers are making me think that I’ve been plateauing since the Week 7 Weigh-In (considering that I’m back to where I was, with plenty of ups and downs in-between). It’s frustrating, but I’ve also kind of accepted it. I’m not giving up, but I’m also not going to be mad at my body for not losing weight faster. It’s on its own timetable. My job is to get into the best physical and mental shape I possibly can - the weight will follow where and when it’s supposed to.

By the way, I already have an idea for what I want to do after these 90 days are over. Stay tuned. :)

My week 8 weigh in was actually two days ago (and my weight has changed since then) but I’ll give you the breakdown.

It’s been a weird week. This may be TMI, but it’s my blog, so whatever. Basically, my last period ended before I started my 90 day journey, and I haven’t gotten it since… until this week, when it finally returned. I’m not sure why. (No, I was not pregnant.) My best guess is that the combination of intense exercise and travel made my body freak out (and I tend to not be the most regular regardless). 

So anyway, ever since my period returned, my weight has fluctuated a lot. Here is the breakdown of the past week:

Day 53: 128.5
Day 54: 129.5
Day 55: 131
Day 56: 129.5
Day 57: 127 
Day 58: 127.5
Day 59: 128

Like, how weird is that? Maybe it’s not too weird - I looked it up, and according to Google, your weight can fluctuate up to 5 lbs around your period. It just so happened that it dipped on the day of my Week 8 weigh-in, but it’s climbing back up again. Who knows. I’ll wait until I’ve stopped bleeding to make any kind of final judgement call.

I also haven’t exercised much this week, again because of my period. I’ve just been more physically tired, and it felt like the right thing to do to let my body rest. 

I’m nervous about hitting my goal - I still have 3-ish pounds to lose (considering that I’m at 128 today) and only about 30 days to do it. But you know what? I’m going to work hard, do my best, and even if I don’t make it to 125 lbs by the end of my 90 day journey, it will still be okay. I’m healthier now than I was, and I’ve still made a tremendous amount of progress. 

And I’m not giving up yet!

It’s day one. (So exciting!) Here are my goals for the next ninety days:

  • workout 5-6 days per week for 30-60 mins 
  • eat clean, i.e., minimal amounts of processed sugar, carbs that have no nutritional value, and dairy (I LOVE me some milk, but I’m pretty sure I tend to gain weight when I drink a lot of it)
  • blog about my experience at least once per week in order to keep track and stay motivated!

I don’t have a scale in the house, so I have to see if my gym happens to have one. Once I dig up a reliable scale, I’ll post what my “before” weight is. The last time I weighed myself (several months ago) I came in at 145 lbs, so it will be interesting to see if/how that has changed.

Meals for the day:

  • Breakfast: 1 salted boiled egg; 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
  • Lunch: 1 packet of frozen fried rice (Costco brand)
  • Snack: 1 oz of Starbucks salted peppermint bark
  • Dinner: 6 oz of a bison New York strip steak with mushroom topping; 2 oz baked sweet potato (leftovers from Ted’s Montana Grill)
  • Snack: 1 cup frozen mango; 1 cup frozen strawberries; drizzle of honey (made into a smoothie)

I have never really tracked food / calories before, so forgive me if I miscalculate something. I assume I will get used to it after a while! According to my tracker app, I’m at 1192 calories for the day (114g carbs, 48g fat, and 61g protein). I don’t ever want to dip below 1200 calories, so I’ll need to be careful about that for the future.

Not SPN but a mun post ♡♡

After september last year, i was at the heaviest i have ever been which is 83kg. I know its not that bad and will have people judge me for feeling bad about that but- I have always been tiny and i took my fast metabolism for granted and ate whatever i want. I became lazy and it was when i was in a dressing room trying on size 12 pants and they wouldnt button up, i realised i had completely given up on my health. So, in Jan, i cut my meals down to only three a day. No snacks. That was…difficult. I love food, i was snacking mostly out of boredom.

I changed my job from Receptionist back to Retail. It pushed up my daily activeness even if for the first two weeks i was so incredibly sore and tired.

I started Pop Pilates again, 20 minute workouts to start with.

i boosted up how much i walk on my day off.

I weighed in last week at 63kgs and im so proud of myself. Im now up to 40 minute workouts, 10-20 minutes of stretching ontop of that + 6,000-10,000 steps a day even on my days off. Im feeling lighter and happier and no longer feel so bad having a sneaky chocolate bar once in a while.

So thanks to Cassey and Pop Pilates, im almost at my goal weight ♡♡

I guess I’m doing workout videos now?! I’m awkward but I had requests from some friends, so here’s to the beginning of all of us getting more fit so we can sing and dance for the entire tour season. 


And there’s tons of alternatives and no jumping. If you’re anything like me, jumping SUCKS on ya knees. So enjoy!

We love you, taylor.

Trying to lower my stress levels meaning I haven’t worked out for a week, because feeling like I HAD to work out was just adding to the stress. But felt like a workout was what I needed today!

I’m also working from home today, so I can roll out my mat before I start working on my assignment.

I’m thinking it will be easier to sit and work my brain when my body has been used 😁
