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 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.
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.
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.
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.
