I think that the 50 day challenge is actually starting to get easier!
At first I didn't love the taste of the protein shakes and I craved so much junk food. I would go to the store I want to put everything chocolate in my cart. I was even craving donuts one morning; which is odd because I don't even like those! But after the first 2 weeks I really don't crave sweets like I used to, my husband says the same thing too. I also find it is getting easier to go the gym 6 days a week. At first I had to find the motivation and would try to come up with excuses not to go; but once it is in my retinue it is actually a lot easier to commit to going every day. AND I am not getting as sore! The first few days I would die the day after a hard work out. Now I will be slightly sore but nothing like the first week and I even up the weight every week!
I dropped one more pound this week! So I am at 114lbs at 5'10. My husband thinks I am just about done losing weight and that I should start replacement the fat with muscle which means I might start gaining weight. A little bitter sweet I think. I love seeing the scale and watching the pounds come off so to watch the scale and see it gaining weight might be a little different. But I do want to put on more muscle which is why I am doing this whole thing!!
I worked out 6 days this week! Every day but Sunday! I am super proud of myself. :) I am even more proud about what I didn't eat on Sunday! It was my birthday on Monday so Sunday night we had a get together with family to celebrate mine and my brother-in-laws birthdays. There was so much yummy food there including these delicious cakes below...
And I didn't even have any! Not even a lick! Ha I felt pretty good about it!
But then Monday rolled around and since it was my birthday we went to the Melting Pot!
Probably not the best choice for the diet plan but since it was my birthday we did eat this..
So I did cheat on the diet slightly.. Boo! But I worked out extra hard for it!
