It has only been a week on my January Challenge but I am super excited. I have been doing so well with my mini challenge of eating a healthy breakfast and lunch.
For breakfast, I have been having a delicious warm cereal bowl. It really is so good and filling. Mmmmm. For lunch, I have been making myself a smoothie containing 2 bananas, a date, 1 cup of unsweet almond milk, 1 scoop of vegan chocolate protein powder, 1/4 of an avocado and a large handful of spinach, swiss chards and kale mix. Sometimes, I throw in 4-6 strawberries and oh my it is so tasty. For dinner, I eat what I fix for my family.
I am so excited that I have lost a pound- YAY :) Now I know that if kick up my exercise a notch and cut out the snacking and desserts, I am sure that I might lose a little bit more. But I know me. And I know that I will go hardcore for about a week or 2, then something will come up that throws off my whole schedule and bam the whole work out, no snacking goes right out the window. I am a very emotional eater.
For my exercise, I have been taking it light. I am following a 30 day crunch, leg raise and plank routine that my son sent me from Pinterest. I have also been doing 10 minutes on my Gazelle and 10 minutes on my bike :) I feel great.
So far so good on my baby steps.
I will check in with you next week and let you know how things are going :)
