So the 80 days is up. I submitted my after pictures and essay. And now I wait to see if I get the opportunity at $25K. I don’t know that my change was enough compared to others or if my essay was compelling enough to win over the judges. We’ll see. I do know, that I am smaller, healthier and fitter overall. So whether I did enough to be in the running or not, it doesn’t matter. I had success!
Day 81 came and went. It was Opening Day and I didn’t eat all the foods or drink all the drinks. I didn’t eat all the junk! Yay!
Unintentionally, I took the week off from workouts. And intentionally, I took a break from logging food on Saturday and Sunday. I still ate good foods, I just didn’t weigh and measure everything. I needed a break. But I still meal prepped and got myself ready for the week.
Now I need to mix things up. I need to reassess where I’m at and make new goals. At the end of the month CrossFit Boom is hosting a nutrition class. I’m hoping it will inspire a new food plan to help me get the next 20-30 pounds off without losing gains in the gym.
But what I really need to do is MORE. I keep saying I need to add more to my workouts and I just don’t. Baby steps, right. Maybe I’ll add one extra morning workout a week. I won’t overcommit myself. Just get into a routine. Then I can add another morning workout. And maybe that’s all the extra I need. Two, 2-a-days per week, which will bring me to 5-6 workouts a week. I don’t know. Just spit-ballin here. I’ll figure something out. All I know is that I can’t stop.
So where are you? Ready to get on this train? Let me know. Strength in numbers folks. Again, I’m not a professional, but I’m no dummy either. I can help you, work out with you, cheer you on or just like your social media posts for encouragement. Wanna do the Advocare thing? Wanna just eat better? Wanna start working out? Let’s go.
I’m riding this thing out. I’m gonna see how far I can get. I’m not quitting. I don’t plan on letting the weight come back. Like I said, I have 20-30lbs to shed. Maybe more. I need support just as much as you might need.
No better time to start than NOW!
