I am at end of week 10 of my third challenge. My first challenge had amazing results from 210 to 191 (19 lbs.) but my second challenge was a failure with 0 lbs. lost, I learned from my lesson as I jump into the third challenge, in fact I am almost done with the 3rd and last challenge.
At week 10 my lowest weight was 190 lbs., started this challenge around 198 (after gaining some lbs. post second challenge). My goal at the end of this challenge is to hit 185 lbs. that will be 2/28/11 exactly at the end of this month and 10% body fat. I also plan to continue the challenge until end of march 3/30/11 to reach my ultimate goal of 175 lbs., i am 5'11 and this is the perfect weight for me and my sports.
During this 3rd challenge, I made some mistakes on the free day as I felt I was binging and eating a lot, it resulted to me feeling really sluggish the following day and felt terrible, I felt it was a step back and now that I have 2 weeks left until the official end of the challenge, I need extra motivation so i am writing this to be accountable to you folks who I know wont' let me go easy. I will keep everyone posted on my progress and any advice on free days is much appreciated. Also my usual diet everyday is the following, let me know what you think
8am Breakfast - 1 egg, 2 egg whites (fried with pam not oil), 1 cup brown rice
12pm Lunch - grilled chicken with salad from sonoma chicken coop or carls jr. low car burger or anything i can whip up from home that's healthy
3pm break - myoplex lite bar
5pm break - myoplex lite bar
8pm dinner - same as breakfast
no soda all water
however I think my deal breaker is my free day,which i plan to give up for the last 2 weeks
i appreciate all your input guys, thanks and good luck to all of us
Hey Kakashi The free day has a use make it a free meal, it's really important especially when you are so restrictive in your diet, your free day will keep you out of starvation mode, and the sluggish feeling is there to let you know how you feel when you don't eat right. Check your calorie intake you might not be eating enough.
