The second week of the challenge is over. I was able to bring my numbers up for the challenge from the first week but the lack of intense fitness training really hurt my overall numbers. The finally week I am going all out and will hit the gym or workout at home 6 days alternating the strength training and the cardio and core training.
I am feeling stronger and leaner. I will take the final measurements at the end of next week but already feel a difference in my body. Even if I didn’t lose one pound, the energy and the way I feel in my body has committed me to making lasting changes.
I have cleaned up my food and eliminated the carbohydrate cravings I was having before the challenge began. I feel great and look forward to finishing this challenge with a strong push.
Wish me luck!
Here are my stats:
Goal for today: Go to the gym and do two sets of strength training and 10 minutes of cardio at high intensity intervals.

- I got moving and sweated even though I didn’t want to at all.
