Wanna' Get Fit With Me? - Fit Girls Guide Week 4 Recap
So the 28 Day Jumpstart challenge is over. I did it! In case you're just tuning in September 22 marked the start of the Fit Girls Guide challenge.
Fit Girls Guide is a downloadable eBook, about 28 pages, that provides exercises and meal plans, it’s basically a healthy life style guide for women that is fun to read and follow. Read about why I started the Fit Girls Guide meal plan here.
So in the first week I predicted I would have Chick - fil - A withdrawal. Happy to say I didn't visit Chick-fil -A once in the 28 day meal plan period. Nothing wrong with Chick-fil-A ,I love it, but it was starting to become a 3 night a week - after the gym, habit for me and that wasn't healthy.
WEEK 4 Recap
-I ate well and exercised much better than in previous weeks. I had more time this week.
-I discovered a healthy new snack - Fitberry Shortcake, involves strawberries, ricotta cheese and strawberries mmmm - tasty.
I didn't weigh myself during the 4th week, because it was also that one week out of the month when we girls tend to get bloated (you know what I'm saying) However, I did notice a change in my appearance.
My middle section seemed slimmed down and even my Mom remarked that my stomach looked smaller.
The biggest difference was in my eating habits. After the 28 days was over I visited my parents, they ordered dinner and had chicken, mac'n cheese, spoon bread, all of my traditional favorites. Only I couldn't finish the meal, it tasted too salty, not quite right. I think my taste buds are just accustomed to more of home cooked meals and less processed ingredients. That's a good thing.
Don’t get me wrong, I'm not permanently giving up Soul Food or eating out. However, I've come to appreciate eating these things in moderation. Hopefully this is not just a onetime change but a lifelong habit. To make sure I eat right..... I'm doing the jumpstart program again! Fit Girls Guide is kicking off another challenge on Monday, October 27 and giving wayover $1500 in prizes! I'm trying to get some of that money. lol. I hope I can get some friends to joine with me.
