So I saw the first picture on my dash and could not be more repulsed/motivated. Repulsed because the ideologies in the first photo are wrong —you don’t destroy yourself to be happy. You improve yourself. Depriving your body and your soul of nutrients and fuel gets you nowhere.
Then, I was motivated to make the bottom picture. So many people have helped me become who I am today. I too, once used the top photo as “thinspiration”. I then learned that harming yourself is not the answer to anything. If I learned anything from this process, it’s to remain true to myself. Feeding myself and fueling myself with positive thoughts got me as far as I am today. Not negativity or body shaming.
Weight lost: -1.8lbs
Workouts: 5/6 (I missed yoga on account of forgetting my stuff.)
Eating: 3/5 (5 instead of 7 since I started on Monday)
So I am pretty proud of how well Week 1 went. There were a lot of mornings when Chalene really kicked my butt but I am glad I pushed through. I am happy with the loss.
I am aiming for an 80/20 split on foods (80 healthy, 20 indulgent) so I am happy with how the week turned out. I am still low on meeting my protein macros but I have a game plan for that for next week. I will be stocking up on hard boiled eggs and greek yogurt to start getting those protein numbers where they should be for a 40/30/30 split.
Rock on Week 2!
