Weight today: 9 st 6 lb
I’ve now completed my first 50@50 challenge by sticking to my detox for a week! And with a bonus of losing 4 lb this week too… yay!
This has meant:
- No alcohol for 7 days – achieved!
- No processed food – achieved!
- No sugary food – achieved!
- No ‘bad’ carbs (white bread, cakes, biscuits, pastries etc) – achieved!
- Lots of vegetables and fruit – achieved!
I did manage to keep to around 1150 calories on average which wasn’t too difficult and combined this with quite a lot of exercise:
- 2 x gym sessions
- 10 mile walk on Sunday
- 2 x 5 mile walks
- 1 x 3 mile walk
I generally prefer to eat healthy food rather than junk food. But making this extra effort has definitely motivated me to continue with the whole package of more exercise, better quality food and an overall healthier lifestyle on my countdown to 50!
I would recommend a week of focussing on a healthy detox and I am planning to continue eating as well as I can in order to continue to tackle my “bordering high” cholesterol levels. However I must say I’m looking forward to a glass of red tonight! I’m in the ‘red wine is good for you‘ club and not planning on an alcohol-free lifestyle any time soon…
