Having been on my “fit to the next level” journey for one month, today is the day that I will take my measurements and weigh-in. When I started this journey, I was not sure how I was going to enjoy it. After all, I am on a restrictive diet with only 1 cheat meal per week and up to two glasses of wine at my cheat meal. Everything I eat gets measured.
One month in, I can say that not only do I not find the meal plan satisfying and the workouts challenging, but I’m really enjoying this new lifestyle. It truly is a lifestyle. This “new” for me way of eating is providing my body with nutrients it wants and needs to function and by eating this way, I am not munching on chips, licorice and other treats. In fact, I am not craving sweets or salty foods. As for the workouts, I am doing more than surviving. I am getting stronger and lifting heavier weights.
My measurements after one month demonstrate that my hips and waist are decreasing in size, my muscles are starting to get bigger, and my weight is coming down.
