Four Day Mini Challenge

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Hi everyone... just thought I'd share that since we are going to Cape Cod this weekend, I'm on a mini challenge to prepare. I started yesterday. I'm not tracking calories (probably should be, but I've been doing this long enough to know in general how much to eat to stay in range), but I do have some rules:

*smoothie for breakfast
*batch-cooked meal for lunch
*something small for dinner, things like fish or chicken and vegetables
*optional: 1 small drink, 1 small dessert
*snacks: 1 baggie almonds, 1 hardboiled egg, fruits, vegtables
*strength/stretching Tues/Thurs

I'm doing this Monday (yesterday) through Thursday the 26th. We're leaving Thursday night for the Cape. Basically I should always be doing these things, but for right now it has to be a bit stricter.

    I was just eavesdropping on a couple competitors today... try to avoid carbs in the last 2 meals of the day for a fast weight drop! In 4 days, I wonder what the impact would be?!?!

    Love the idea of a mini-challenge! Sometimes it's nice to really buckle down and focus for a short time, and since it's short, there's no burnout!
