5-30-30 Challenge

Yay, Another 30 Day Challenge.

I am calling this one the 5-30-30 challenge. It’s very simple and I like simple.
5 Days a week.
30 Minutes.
30 Day Cycles.
This challenge takes 6 weeks to complete, Monday thru Friday.

I work a normal 8 to 5 job Monday thru Friday. The weekends are for family time and rest.

Here’s the Plan

I have found that working out is extremely difficult for me.  In Fact I HATE working out.

The first 30 days is going to be training my brain that 30 minutes a day is for working out.  If I don’t feel like working out I have to sit there doing nothing.  Kinda making myself realize that I might as well do something, anything.

Day 1.

Last night I set my timer and started my workout.  Pushups, Situps, Plank and other random moves.  I noticed that I spent a lot of time looking at the timer, but I made it 30 minutes.

One Meal A Day Days off

I found that being at work on One Meal a Day is easier than being at home with the food.  Yesterday I think I ate everything in the house.  Then today I was a little smarter, I ate all the veggies.  But now I am thinking about going to town and buying some chips and salsa.

Being a day off I forgot to weigh myself this morning.  I have already had all the veggies but my weight is – 258.  Which is that bad considering where I started.  The holidays have definitely been hard on the self-control.

I do have to say eating one meal a day has been great on my weekly allowance.  I used to spend $25 ish a week on lunch.  Being a vegetarian shopping for lunch at convenience stores wasn’t healthy at all.  I ate a lot of chips and salsa.

Anyway, If you are reading this I hope you’re getting something out of it.  I enjoy only eating one meal a day.

One Meal a Day Week 3

What an amazing week!

This week was super easy.  The normal eating time hunger pains have vanished.  I didn’t feel hungry until I was cooking dinner for the family.

Also, I work where everyone shares food.  We have counters where people will bring in Donuts, Snacks and homemade creations.  I haven’t had a single snack.

I feel amazing and can’t wait till Monday’s weigh in.
