The Biggest Loser: Week 3


So today is Monday! Time for The Biggest Loser update.


From last Monday I've gone down 1.5 pounds. I'm happy I went down but must say, wish I could lose more in a week. LOL..however, I know some weeks are better than others. I didn't exercise this week as much as I wanted too, mostly due to exhaustion. We had a lot of things going on this week so only had 2 days of workouts. My goal is 4 times of week. Overall I'm keeping positive and motivated. This week will be better. Slow and steady they say is better, but as humans we always want to rush things. lol...

Things I want to work on:

I need more sleep. Sleeping definitely assists when you are trying to lose weight, I need to get in some proper rest. I was getting in bed at a decent time a few days in the pass weeks, but last week wasn't that great. I will work on that this week.

I want to add an extra 10 minutes to my normal workout this week.

Recipe I tried:

I tried a simple recipe I saw online for whole wheat tortilla wraps with Re-fried beans and Avacado. I must say it was delicous. I had 2 medium size for lunch with a side salad. I used Pinto Beans (my favs) but you can use black or red bean (or whatever bean!), mushed them and re-fried them in a tad bit of olive oil. I added lemon to 1/2 of an avacado and a pinch of salt (you can omit, but I need a pinch!). Than I put it together. I warmed up the Tortillas. I really enjoyed them. Maybe you can give them a try.

Funny Story:

My two year old (soon to be 3), seems to love when mommy is working out. It's cute how she watches the workout video so intently and tries to do the moves. It's quite hilarious. The other day, I was doing sit-ups and she said she wanted to do some too. She laid down and did a whole set of "2" sit-ups. She got up and said, "mommy I'm tired" sweety....

Looking forward to reading your progress! Until next week. :)


  1. Hey Natalie : )

    Stopping by from the linkup.

    Getting to sleep earlier is something that I need to work on too.

    Hope you have a great week!

  2. Well done! Keep up the good work!

    Don't our kids say the funniest things. My daughter used to say "Mommy, it's really tough being 3" ha she is now 5, and I think she might agree she had it pretty easy before!

    Here is to another great week!

    1. ha ha..that's cute. Yes kids are the comic relief in our day. lol...Thanks, same to you!

  3. Hi! I'm a new follower from the BL challenge! Congrats on your 1.5 lb loss!

  4. That recipe sounds yummy! I am going to try it! Have a great week!

  5. Getting enough sleep is something I definitely need to work on as well! It's tough, though!

    I used to love it when my youngest son, who was probably 4 at the time tried to do yoga with me. He liked "upside down dog."

    Great job! By the way, I've always been told it's best to lose a pound or two a week. Any more than that, and the greater chance you'll gain it right back. So, slow and steady is best in the long run, right?

    1. Yes you are right. But waiting is hard sometimes. lol..But you are right!

  6. YES! Sleep! I need to really focus on getting more sleep - I go to sleep so late, then I'm dragging ALL DAY LONG and don't feel like working out. It's a terrible never ending circle! Plus, when I'm tired.. I want to munch more :( Here's to a great week! Keep it up, girly! :)

    1. Exactly, that's why sleep is super important.

      Thanks! Have a gret one as well. :)
