Well ,Week One went by fast....only 10 more to go : )
I made a few changes last week. One, to keep a food diary, two, stay away from chocolate, and three, stop the mindless picking at everyone's plates.
So how did I do? I lost one pound.
I'm good with this. I didn't change my diet much, I ate my fruit and vegetables, and three of the days I refrained from meat. It's not unusual for me to have meat free days, but two of these days were for Lent. We're good about not automatically ordering pizza on Fridays during this time, we had salmon burgers one night, tilapia another, and blackened salmon another. When we make choices like that, I feel free to enjoy meat when I do eat it, like on Saturday. We went to an Irish bar/restaurant for lunch after the parade, and I had an open faced reuben (I was surprised it wasn't giant sized, it was a perfect portion)...AND beer.
I'm keeping these changes in place for week #2, and I'm going to add a fitness goal. I despise planks, I know they're a really effective core exercise, but I'm more of a crunch girl. So, along with my daily stretching, I'm adding daily planks. Ouch.
Okay, for those of you participating in this challenge.....how did you do??? Let me know what change you made during Week 1, and what your goal is for Week 2.
I'll leave you with a little weight loss factoid:
I read once in Glamour magazine, that the best time to weigh yourself, to find your true weight, is first thing in the morning, after you use the bathroom, and before you eat or drink anything. So that's when I do it.
Have a great week!
