We are sailing through this weight loss challenge! Week three is done, and we’re cruising in to the second half – only 3 weeks to go. Are you seeing the results you wanted to see? I’m down a total of 9 pounds, after a pretty big loss the first week due to my clean eating reset program. I’m proud to stay that I’m sticking with it, and trucking right along, even incorporating more movement in to my non-exercise days. After 3 weeks of clean eating, I have reached the point where I don’t even crave sugar and other junk foods. Talk about feeling liberated!
So go hop on your scale and report back to us! Are you seeing the results you want to see? I sure hope so! If not, maybe it’s time to take a look at what you’re doing and make some changes. Are you tracking your food and exercise? A food journal is just about the best tool you’ll have on this journey, so if you’re not tracking faithfully, that could be your problem. It’s amazing how fast those bites, licks, and tastes add up – be sure you’re counting all the BLTs! A good old fashioned composition book is a great way to keep track of things….what you’re eating, how much you’re moving, and even how you feel day to day. If you don’t have time, apps like LoseIt and MyFitnessPal are GREAT ways to track as well.
- What are your favorite apps to keep you on track with fitness and weight loss?
- Do you track everything, or do you just try to keep a running tally in your head? How is that working for you?
Keep up with us all over the place!
