End of Week 1

Well, I have successfully finished one week of BFL. I feel ok. I don't know if I am doing enough. I am following the plan by the book but I keep thinking that maybe I should be doing more. Am I working out hard enough? Am I eating right? Am I eating enough to gain muscle? Should I start taking supplements?

Today was a "free" day. I took a break from working out. I am doing legs tomorrow and I have some knee pain so I needed the break. As far as eating is concerned, I didn't go overboard on the "freedom". I still ate my small meals throughout the day. At one meal I ate a whole banana instead of half. And for my last meal I had frozen yogurt (a pretty big serving) and a tablespoon of almond butter. I definatley didn't have enough protein today. Ugh.

I am going to try to make this second week better than the first. I plan on taking some progress pics next Sunday. Hopefully I will notice a difference.


  1. Don't be so hard on yourself. All of that extra stress will increase your cortisol levels and make it even harder to lose weight! You are a beautiful girl and in time, the weight will peel away on its own. So you didn't get in all the protein you had wanted for the day...well NEWSFLASH, did you ever here of someone dying of a protein deficiency...NO. Don't fret, tomorrow is a new day and one day of slight imperfection won't kill you. Remember it is about your overall progress, not each day! You were great all week, 6 steps forward, and were not amazing one day, -1...but hey, you were still 5 STEPS FORWARD! That's freakin awesome and you should be celebrating your progress and not putting yourself down! You are a strong and powerful and amazing woman...remember that!

  2. I'm sure you're doing great. Just do what the plan tells you!

  3. I definitely understand the feeling of not doing enough. How long is the program? 12 weeks? Just imagine how much you're body is going to change in that time.

  4. Girl you are way hard on yourself! I admire your determination and your willpower but I think you look great! Keep it up but don't forget we are not perfect! I definitely belive we need to be healthy though....its all about finding that healthy happy balance :)
