New Years Challenge! Which Road will you Take?
Week one of my New Years Challenge is in the books! It was a great week overall, felt pretty rough on Monday and Tuesday but since Wednesday my energy level has been through the roof (gotta love getting those processed carbs out of your diet). A look a the week:
Training: Completed 3x weight training and 4x cardio as planned
Diet: Suceeded in keeping carbs under 100 grams per day (only sources: oatmeal, fruit and veggies). No alcohol. No sugar. Very little dairy. No gluten products at all. It really helped to keep track of my diet on www.fitday.com, once I hit 100 grams of carbs, no more for the day (on Friday this was at 8am, ouch)!
Wt. Loss: 5lbs (probably 99% water weight, next week will be the real test)
Body fat loss: Will measure every 4 weeks
For those of you with me on this challenge, keep up the good work and feel free to send in questions or comments. For those of you who are not, why not try just cutting out processed carbs for one week and see how you feel???? Trust me, it cannot hurt!
