Two Week Challenge

Thursday, May 16, 2013

So I always do monthly challenges. I tend to do well for about 2 weeks and then I tend to either stop or get lazy with it. Then I never feel like I should be proud of myself. I mean I did do well for the first half so I should be happy about that. So with the knowledge of this I am going to try a 2 week challenge. Here's the plan.

**5 Days a Week:
Twice a day:
40 lunges w/10lbs
40 squats
15 push ups
15 dips
10 burpees
120 bicycle crunches
15 lying leg raises

Once a day:
3 mile walk

8+ glasses of water
Atleast 1300-1400 cals
80g+ protein
30g+ fiber
10+ servings of fruit and vegetables

I've already done half for today. I think I am going to make the weekends my days off. I've upped my my minimum calories a bit. I usually don't go over the 1200s but since I am working out more I don't wanna go below 1300. I'm getting really good at getting in my protein now. I can sometimes get 80g and only be at 1100 cals. So that shouldn't be a problem. The fruit and veggies wont be a problem and that usually helps out with fiber. So foodwise I should be fine. The exercise is where the true challenge lies. I have issues doing both well though. I have a hard time controlling my hunger when working out a lot. I have to really learn to listen to my body and try to figure out if I want to eat more because I need to, or if I want to because I think I can. If that makes sense. Sometimes I justify eating because I work out. I need to learn the difference. So I am gonna play around with my calories a bit to find a good range.

During this time I really wanna limit my processed sugar intake as well. Which I already do, but, for some reason sweets are very tempting when I working out a lot. Again I believe it's because I think its okay since I worked out. This is definitely going to be a challenge. I really think I can do it though... So wish my luck!!!!

    I wouldn't use the term lazy. I'd say bored. I get bored with a plan easily and give up on it. That's my challenge with food. Due to my pickiness and my budget, coming up with enough low-cal recipes to keep me from going nuts is a challenge!

I think you'll find you do better with your 2 week plan, especially if you change it up a bit each time.

Looking forward to your good results! (Cause I know this will work.) :D
