Whew week one done, and for a quick update I am down 2.5 pounds, not bad for a rocky start at best. This week I'm going to give you a quick review, and update on what's to come.
Ok down to the nitty gritty:
Week one: On a whole I did okay - not great but, better than previous attempts and even on the days that I wasn't on plan I made the best choices I could for where we were at.
Food: This plan has 3 breakfasts, 6 snacks/desserts, 3 lunches and 3 dinners - I did eat at least one of each of the recipes (if not necessarily in the order listed), I was really impressed with how well the food tasted, the small amount of prep time, and truely the ease of exceptions if you wanted to change things up. For a quick dip into the fit girl pool this is definatley a great starting place.
Exercise: There is no set exercise plan in this book, I believe it was originally designed for the Fit Girl intercessions (which we're in right now) and there are a few plans posed on IG for those to follow or to keep up with their own. I decided to try Beach Body on Demand for the duration of this series and I'm currently working through a rather campy plan called Yoga Ballet Booty - its' hilarious but exceptionally fun and quite honestly challenging for me and my sedentary life.
How I currently feel: Right now I feel really good, I don't give up sugar completely when I'm on these plans but I do cutback considerably, I'm almost past the cravings, with the exception of salt! Man give me a salt lick and I am good to go!!!!! Other than that I'm really listening to my body in regards to sleep and exercise and so far I think I'm making a lot of progress internally, if not based on the numbers on the scale.
What's next: I am starting the 28 day jumpstart challenge this week, with a lot of modifications - I'll go into that during next weeks posts. I'm back on IG with my fitgirl handle, Sarahgetfit77 - feel free to follow my journey with me. If you have a Fitbit and want to be friends comment below with your email and I'll friend you, I try to host at least one work week hustle challenge a week, and if you want to see what my daily life looks like your're welcome to follow me on Snapchat: Slkirkland - as you can see I was up before dawn this morning as part of my routine.
