I can’t believe we are over half way done with the 60 day Fat Loss Challenge already! Man, there have been highs and lows. Honestly, it has been harder than I thought it would be. I have always struggled with my weight (read my story for background). I did kinda expect this time to be different than every other time I’ve tried to lose weight… I’m not sure why, but I did. I have worked really hard for the weight loss I’ve achieved over these past 5 weeks, and I’m proud of every ounce I’ve lost. I guess, really, this time is different. I think starting CrossFit has a lot to do with it. My body is changing and adapting, I feel stronger and more motivated to see progress. And I don’t plan on going back. So, here is the week 5 Recap!

Favorite Food Finds
I discovered a few new things that have become fast favorites this week.
Zucchini Lasagna, based off a recipe from SkinnyTaste.com
SO Delicious Coconut Milk Creamer. This is SO creamy, low cal and not alot of sugar. Perfect for my iced coffee addiction!
I saw these on a friend’s instagram and HAD to hunt them down. I love them. I don’t think I should keep them in the house at all times because I just might eat them all. In one sitting. They are good. Dangerously Good.
YES! 3 pounds! I’m SO close to being under 200! It’s good to have a “good” week in the scale department, it gives me that extra motivation to push harder this week!
