half way

Monday, April 01, 2013

We are now half way in this biggest loser type challenge. I have lost 30 pounds and I am very happy about this. I am in third place tough because it works by percentage lost. I still have hope. We will see if a trip to New York is in my future. I really hope so.

I am eating low carbs and high proteins. Very difficult because I use to eat 5 to 6 fruits a day and 5 to 6 vegetable a day. But it's only for 12 weeks. So at the end of this extreme challenge, I will review my diet to add more calories ( I am at 1200) and more fruits and less tofu and eggs.

I still do between 2 to 3 hours of exercices a day, 6 x week. Grueling but it is only for 12 weeks. After that we readjust.

My knee is adjusting, I concentrate on rowing, cycling and swimming. I do love to walk and it is so beautiful outside, always sunny and mild. So sometimes I go for a walk with my lovey and if it last for more then 1 hour then I pay the price. But I ice my knee and I take my tylenol.

Have a happy easter, love, peace, health.

    WOW!! Fabulous news! Will you take me to NYC with you if you win? emoticon
It's a fabulous city. I've been there only twice but both times it was really magical.
The best bang for your buck calorie wise and staying within the frame of "low carb" are veggies. Fruits are high in carbs and you can get back to them later, but veggies! You can literally eat buckets of veggies and still be "low carbing it."
on the 30 lbs gone!
