Week 5 – The Green Tea experiment

Once again I’ve been so slack! Busy with my acting performances and rehearsals.

Weight loss to date since the previous week: 7.2 kilos

Weight loss/gain: -.400g

Total weight loss to date: 7.6 kilos

My weight loss seems to be going up and down which is a pain!

I’m finding that being variable with what you are doing will ultimately provide you with variable results.


My diet was a lot better than previous weeks. I have had a few times where I would eat out a little. I had attended a dear friend of mine’s engagement and had some lovely hor doves, the next night I had a Whopper with cheese. There were a few times where I had some treats but not as many. Although I didn’t lose enough to reach the 8 kilo weight loss mark.

Green tea consumption:

I did really well this week. I had consumed green tea after most of my meals and seemed quite second nature. Once again my average green tea consumption was around 3-4 cups per day, even if it wasn’t directly after each meal.


I’m quite proud of myself this week:

Day AM PM Yoga
Thursday 1 hour Cardio
Friday Rest Rest Rest
Saturday 1 hour Cardio 30 mins Cardio
Sunday 1 hour Cardio 20 mins Cardio
Monday 1 hour Toning 30 min Yoga
Tuesday 1 hour Cardio & 1 hour Zumba 20 min Yoga
Wednesday 1 hour Sh’Bam 1 hour yoga

This week I had really tried to commit to my workouts. This consistency did assist with the process of loosing the weight without over doing myself. Whether I can sustain this is a different story. This week was quite interesting as my consistent workouts, especially if a majority of them were cardio based, really helped to shift the weight I just couldn’t move!

As you may have noticed, this past week’s diet is not as detailed as I have forgotten a lot of what I had eaten. Ive left it to today to write this post instead of last Thursday which is quite slack. I’m really hoping that if I give this experiment another go, I will give myself a good 4 weeks.

So let’s leave it for now, until next time.
