No sugar, no wheat

200 day challenge nears the 75 day mark. What has happened so far:

  • I lost weight. I’m about 2 kgs lighter than I’ve ever been. (around 68kg)
  • I am leaner. The wheat belly has flattened out.
  • I feel lighter.
  • I’ve not had too many sugar cravings.
  • I’m very consistent in low impact exercise

Here’s what I learned:

  • The ‘no cheat’ day has made a big improvement. I’m the kind of person who has a ‘on/off’ switch and I react much better than there are no ‘get out of jail’ cards
  • The big challenge is important. I struggled getting to 100 days last year but now it feels easier.
  • I need to watch out on how I increase intensity in my exercise. My lower back strain knocked out a week and was really painful. An accumulated increase in intensity across swimming, medicine ball, running and cycling (as well as work commitments) – while not enough individually to cause an injury – added together put too much stress on my body. Answer: Another reminder to build in more rest days. Ahh. It’s hard. But you need to do this!
  • Talk about your challenge more often makes it seems a part of who I am. Makes it more real.
