Week 1 of my 6 Week Challenge is over. My diet was already full of fruits and vegetables, lean protein, and low fat dairy. I am allergic to wheat, so that already cuts out most junk food. I was putting honey in my tea and I cut that out this week. Also, I really watched my portions and made sure no extra sweets snuck in there. I had a little heavier than regular training week (about 8.5 hours this week), but felt pretty good.
I also read a couple of nutrition books from the library, but no surprise, I am already doing most of what I am supposed to do. I think patience and persistence are going to give me as good of results as I can genetically get. And I will be happy with that. As long as I know that I am doing the right things for my body, I am satisfied with the results.
Some uplifting things from the week were: I have completely stopped having sugar cravings after meals. My sister told me today that I look thin, then she called me a bad name, so I think she meant it. I got a new outfit for work that is very flattering and that makes me feel great. If JLo thinks she has the market cornered on curvy triathletes, she better think again!
