First of all, I want remind you and myself that this challenge is about progress, not perfection!
Here is a quick update. I am at the beginning of week four of my self challenge but I am only on week 3 of the Liift4 program. I will be totally honest, I have not gone all in yet. Not sure what I am waiting for but this week my focus is on planning and prepping my food, and continuing to get my workouts in.
Here’s what I am happy to report:
I have been getting at least 5 workouts in each week. Four of them have been the Liift4 Program from Beachbody. Love it! I am attending my weekly Hot Yoga class and I have peppered in some walking and biking.
I lost 2 pounds
I feel stronger
I have been preparing my weekly plan and food prepping. That is helping me a lot. When I don’t have to figure out what I am eating on the spur of the moment, I do much better.
Water intake is great!
DO YOU FOOD PREP? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!
Here’s where I need to focus on:
Carbs – I still feel like I am getting too many. Planned some treats but I will be reducing the amount this week.
Food in general needs to be tightened up a bit. I am eyeballing my portions instead of doing a bit of measuring for accuracy.
2 pounds…Really?? I know I said this would be a slow process but truly, it’s a bit slower than I was hoping. I acknowledge that the weights in the Liift4 program are probably slowing this number. I will see when I measure again at the end of this week.
This Self Challenge is totally doable and reflecting back on the past few weeks has been eye opening. I can see where I need to make tweaks, where there is room for improvement and where I can gain momentum.
