So, this is my week 3 report. Things are going well, but not awesome.
1st, I couldn’t get as much workouts in as I wanted; family is still sick; I feeling completely worn out from this grueling pace of things… and, I really can NOT eat anymore chicken… *sobs*
The good news is: Running is actually fun now; I started sparring in Muay Thai; I’ve committed to getting back into BJJ — my coach knows #accountability; and, my family took a wonderful trip to Disneyland. #OurHappyPlace
Week 3 has been nuts. And, honestly, I’m already half way into week 4. Week 3 is when I feel the weight has been shedding FAST. I’m down probably 8+lbs from when I started. I fear I’m getting more cardio in than weight lifting… it is something I’m hoping to fix for the remainder of the challenge — that weight lifting element.
Time. Time. TIME. T I M E is the ultimate limiter this past week. Also, having looked at my recent bills, it is true — eating healthy is more expensive… I think a lot of it has to do with perishable portions. The other, is that buying whole foods (not the store) requires more frequency of purchases since things expire. It’s making think about an MBA project about regional and local food stuffs I did; and, perhaps, how this could positively affect the local economies should it be adopted at scale.
In any case… week 3… I feel this challenge has truly turned the corner. Traveling was very difficult in terms of adhere to diet or even finding food stuffs congruent with my prescribed meal plans. Working out was basically running. So…. I’m actually happy to be home in that regard and hope I can turn this Week 4 around and really get into the lifting through the end of the challenge.
