After beginning on this while weight loss journey again, it’s now been a month and I feel better than ever!
I have taken it pretty easy walking between 3-5kms for 5x days and then doing a circuit work out.
I’ve changed my rating to a more 80/20 approach. I tend to find if I restrict myself too severely I fail within the first 2 weeks. I know that I can have my ice cream after dinner but I am now making sure that my training is still going strong. I’ve also been making just smarter choices when I eat. I love, love, love a hamburger and chips! YUM! But I don’t want the white potato chips because I am having bread and I know that carbs like that,just don’t work for me. So instead I’ve been having homemade burgers with homemade sweet potato chips!
Since it’s nearing the end of the month I thought I would jump on the scale and see if anything has changed. My husband swears he can see it although I am not sure.
But I hopped on, measured my weight and body fat percentage and both have come down slightly. 2.5kgs and 1.5%! Small victory but I am happy with that. My husband kindly reminded me that a 2.5kg bag of potatos is not light and that any progress is great.
I am committed to not failing this year and if that means small steps I am all for it!
