Well week 4 has come to a close. This is day 28 of the 98 day challenge. Within the last 28 days, I've dropped 4 lbs. I would like to be further along but I am going to take the results I have and be happy especially when I spent a week on vacation in Florida only gained 1/2 a lb! Hopefully, at day 56, I can say, I've dropped a total of 12 lbs.
Last week, I didn't get as much cardio in as I wanted nor did I complete all three weight workouts for the week but I still lost. I'm not going to rest on the fact that I lost weight despite missing a workout though. I'm shooting for the 3 weight workouts this week and at least 3-4 cardio sessions.
From a diet perspective, I'm curious how much fat I can lose if I minimize the carbs. I'm going to limit myself to about 150 grams. I'll have a piece of toast or 1/4 cup of oatmeal at breakfast and maybe a 1/2 c of brown rice or a baked yam with lunch but the rest will come from vegetables. Right now, I've barely consumed 100 g of carbs but I'm up to 170 g of protein. Must have been that Asian Grilled Chicken salad at McDonalds plus the extra chicken breast!!!
I'm going to be my own guinea pig. I read so many books and articles about what works best that I think it's time to find out for myself what works and what doesn't.
