It has been 30 days since I began my 90 day challenge. For those of you new to the blog, I started this challenge 90 days before my moving-back-to-NY date. I didn’t set any super-specific goals, create a special diet or fitness plan, but I wanted to get healthier and tone up. I have attempted to do this by:
– Crossfit 3-4x/week: I have a new found love for the sport and am getting stronger everyday!
– Reducing sugar intake: I certainly haven’t given up sugar, but I am trying to cut back. My snacks are healthier and I limit sweets to one small treat per day, ideally less than 150 calories. Treats have included most ice cream and pieces of chocolate. No more mindless snacking on candy.
– Increasing fruit and veggie intake. This has actually been a lot more fun than I thought! I’m have lots of fun experimenting in the kitchen these days.
I can’t believe that I am about to do this, but here are some before/after pictures for the first 30 days. AHHH.
I definitely see a difference, but am starting to lose motivation…hopefully posting pictures of myself for the world to see (AHHHH) will help curb the desire to eat sweet bread at work today….
A note: I am only measuring my progress by these pictures, how my clothes fit, and how I feel. I dislike scales for various reasons and my tape measure is dysfunctional. My pants are definitely getting looser though!
Are you on a tone-up/weight loss journey? How do you measure progress?
