Small changes can equate to big wins in fitness


We just finished week 2 of the Project 10 challenge and I am happy to say that things are going well! I am sticking to my plan and working on the small goals I set for myself. I survived the past week without sweets. I accidentally cheated once, and remembered that I was abstaining AFTER I shared a banana pudding pop with the girl child. Not bad for an entire week! I like the idea so I am going to do it again this week. We are going to a wedding so I will allow myself one cheat and eat some wedding cake.

I have also been trying to eat only until I am not hungry instead of eating until I am full. This is hard for me because I eat fast. And by fast, I mean lightning speed. I am trying to slow down and not clear my plate. Old habits die hard so this one is a big goal for me.

I managed to meal plan for the week and we have had fruit and yogurt for me to bring to work for snacks. I realized that by cheating and buying a container of cut fruit, I am eating more fruit. My hubbs was a little ticked that I spent $20 on cut fruit, but it is worth it to me! I have only bought lunch at work one day in the past week and even then, I bought a "wellness approved" sandwich and still brought snacks from home.

So where am I at overall? Down 2.5 pounds from the start! I lost inches everywhere except my thigh (which went up 1/2 in for some reason, I hope it is muscle gain from the squats and lunges) and my chest. Small improvements, but I am starting to see that sticking to my plan is giving me results. The weight loss is right on target to where it should be to be sustainable.

  1. wow, Kameron, sounds like you are doing awesome. Sweets are my kryptonite, so I would find this super hard!!! I recently did a diet for only 5 days that was only chicken/turkey/eggs/fruits/veggies - THAT IS IT. It was so hard, but I saw big results... now I'm on vacation, and it's out the window ;)

  3. I need to take some notes from you. I have put on 10 pesky pounds but it's just so hard right now, not being able to run. But that's not really an excuse because I can do other things (and I am, I just like to eat!!)

    Good for you, my friend. Keep it up!!

  4. Hooray for loss!! I definitely need to improve our dinners by planning again - one crazy busy week threw us off and we haven't come back since.

  5. Good job!! I've found that sometimes you have to pay a little more for what works. For me that buying baby carrots. If I had to peel carrots for 6 people we'd never eat them. But grabbing a handful of baby carrots is no big deal. :)

  6. Nice work! I am a lightening fast eater too- it was hard for me to learn to slow down! I hate cold food as well, which never helps!

  7. Give due thought to the cost required in purchasing a trailer, for example, transportation cost and set up cost. These expenses may make your credit costly. In this way, appraise these expenses before you choose which advance to get. Payday Loans
