Beck Trek - Chapter 5 - Day 2 - Choose Two Reasonable Diets

Saturday, August 29, 2015

My "diet" of choice is just simple calorie counting. As a back up, I use calorie counting and low carb. This has been the eating plan that has worked for me since 2008. I use the spark people app and track my food like a nun.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Give myself credit....I've been forgetting to do this...catching up for the week.
1. I lost 2 pounds this week. That puts me back into my maintenance range. First time all year. I'm glad I didn't settle for hovering above it.
2. Ignored the food pushers at work this week (blueberry muffins and doughnuts).
3. Tracked my food all week.
4. Did scheduled exercise 5 days (RIPPED twice and spin 3 times).
5. Started the plank challenge a week ago...already up to 3 minutes.
6. Did spontaneous exercise 4 days.
7. Spent some time today a big stack of clothes ready to donate. Keeping busy is a good thing on the weekend when I am more vulnerable to snacking.
8. Stuck with the Beck Trek challenge and blogged every day.

    Hey Carol,,,I am commenting on your blogs in lieu of blogging myself. I am also calorie counting for my diet choice with the addition of doing MON WED FRI calorie cycling where I go low cal, around 600 to 700 cals. Back up plan is not doing the low days. Started plank challenge yesterday and did 30 seconds, will add 10 seconds each day. Also started tabata yesterday, 4 minutes of high intensity movement, 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off for 8 cycles. Carol, you are doing great and have always been such a huge inspiration to me!!!! emoticon

    So glad to read that you are sticking with the SP plan. I believe it is the only way to go, "diets" don't work. Congrats on reaching your goal weight. Best wishes...
