The Challenge That Won’t Quit

Ok folks, 11 days to go.

I’ve learned some big things over the past couple weeks.

  1. I have just as much fun on vacation (and in life) if I’m eating well and working out. I don’t know about you but I feel better when I’m consistently doing those two things! So I truly did not miss the ice cream and pizza on vacation.
  2. I’m enjoying the taste of food more. I never loved sweet potatoes but now I can’t get enough of them! I think my taste buds have begun appreciating natural sweetness and other flavors and it’s making me enjoy my (plain) food more. This excludes egg whites. I still gag eating them.
  3. There’s a huge difference between going on a diet and changing your diet AND exercising. I’ve lost weight before but still didn’t look awesome. Even when I was 20 I was “skinny fat” meaning super thin but that was just good genes (WHERE DID THEY GO?!?! Oh they must have left when my 10lb 2oz baby Judah arrived) But now everything is getting firm and I love that! I’d take strong and a bigger number on the scale over “skinny fat” any day!
  4. I realized the other day I haven’t had a single stomach ache. I usually have them pretty frequently! But then I had some brussel sprouts and I was in some pain! My body was probably blinded by the gluten and dairy I was always eating with them and didn’t know which way was up. Now I’m sure, Brussels don’t like me.

Recap:
Weeks completed-4
Pounds lost- 11

I may have only lost a pound this week but I lost 1.5% of body fat. I feel like that’s a lot!
