This is a short and quick update for the end of week 1 of the Go Green Get Fit Challenge.
We’ve just finished up our first week on the Go Green Get Fit Challenge. My plan to eat on the Whole 30 has been moving along well. I actually started on this about a week before the official start date for the challenge. So for me it’s been two weeks of eating on the Whole 30.
I’ll be honest, I don’t necessarily think I’m losing weight but, part of the Whole 30 is not to focus on the weight thing, so I have not weighed myself or taken any measurements, because, I’m reminding myself, my focus is on eating better and I am eating better. For two weeks I have had, no grains, no sugar, no alcohol (almost, I did have one glass of red wine when I was out to dinner one night), no dairy…. and no chocolate in the form of candy with sugar. I have eaten a few raw cocao nibs, but not quite the same as chocolate in the form of candy, with sugar….
What I have been eating, is primarily meat, vegetables and some, a very limited amount of fruit. I have had a few times when I really wanted something sweet and instead I ate a few dried apricots or some raisins…. amazingly enough this really worked and took away my sweet craving.
One thing I have noticed, I do have more energy and I’m not having my late afternoon slump. So, I’m moving ahead, one week at a time. Next week I plan to start walking as the grass pollen season is winding down soon… usually around or after July 4th, the grass pollen season ends and then I can be outside again without going crazy in the pollen.
