Don't rely on the scale alone!!! The scale is not an accurate measure of success. Muscle weighs more than fat. You're building muscle, which burns fat, and your body is changing, but the scale may not move or it might even go up. GASP!
Instead of weighing in weekly, I would rather see my friends take measurements and photos! Also, it's important to remember that everyone loses weight differently. We are all unique and we have different body types, metabolisms, different starting weights, etc. Someone may lose 5 pounds in their first week of a new program, while another person may GAIN 2 pounds in their first week. Someone may lose another 7 by week 2, while someone else doesn't lose a pound until week 3. Your body is going to react differently, don't compare yourself to someone else, and stay off that scale.
Use this measurement guide to track your progress, update it once a month.
I want to show you the following two photos, which show 21 Day Fix results. It's really only a handful of "pounds" lost, but check out the amazing difference in the before/after photos!
Now, do you still think that 5-8 pounds of weight loss isn't a lot? Of course not, it's a significant amount of weight!
Incredibly easy fried rice!
Start with 2 bags of boil in a bag brown rice (I can't cook rice unless it's boil in a bag!) prepare that and drain the water.
While your rice is cooking, grab some veggies, anything you have on hand! Broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, carrots, green beans, sweet onion, peppers, really any combination of 3 or more veggies that you have on hand. Chop them up and sauté in 1 tsp of coconut oil and 1/4 cup of water with a dash of each: Ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes, soy sauce, sea salt and pepper.
Cut 3 chicken breast into bite size pieces and sauté in 1-2 tsp olive oil and the same spices as your veggies.
In a skillet, add some coconut oil and scramble eggs, I use 3-5. Push the eggs to the side and add your rice to the skillet. Fry your rice with about 2 tablespoons of soy sauce for about 3 minutes. Add veggies and chicken and mix well.
