The Challenge is officially underway! I weighed in at Weight Watchers yesterday and I bought myself a 12 week tracker to log food and track my daily points. Just to break it down one more time here are my rules:
* Nutrition: Earn 5 points a day. Eat only Power Foods and per the Simply Filling Technique. 1 point is lost per infraction of non power food indulgence. (i.e. sushi for lunch or a granola bar for a snack)
* Activity: Earn 2 points a day. I will consider it earned when I do at least 10min of concerted effort. Mostly going to Crossfit or doing a home WOD. Daily activity like walking the dogs does not count as that is part of my normal routine already.
* Mobilizing: Earn 2 points a day. 10 min of stretching/foam rolling/lacrosse ball smashing = earned points.
* Good Health Guidelines: Earn 2 points a day. Must meet all GHGs (water, fruits/veggies, dairy, healthy oils) AND multivitamin!
*Bonus Points: Earn 2 points after Reflecting on the day for 5 consecutive days. (this will be done in my 12 week tracker)
My starting weight is 165#.
Starting Waist measurement at the belly button 37″
Starting Hip measurement at the peak of the buttocks 42″
I’ve managed to survive Day 1 with relative ease and I went to the grocery store to make sure I’ll be stocked up for next week, too. I love the first few days of a challenge because it feels SO easy – but it’s a couple weeks in that the challenge really begins for me. I’ve always been more of a sprinter so endurance is not my strong suit. But I know that regardless of what happens between now and March 6th will be a huge learning tool. So I’m going to say SHUT UP INSECURITIES! and give you as much of a real look into this challenge as I can give. I’ll be updating every week so stay tuned for the results of Week 1 both on and off of the scale!
