And I'm sticking to it!
I'm late with my Perfect 10 Diet update this week!
On the scale, I stayed the same.
Better than gaining...
But I wanted to lose!
The truth is, the 3 week induction plan, or Phase 1, is tough. No sugar, no caffeine, no snacks, no processed foods....
I was doing well and then....my lady hormones kicked in, if you know what I mean. Of course, I gave in to those callings and cravings, and I paid for it on the scale.
Not only that, but I totally lost control and I'm still struggling to get back on that wagon.
The good news is I am moving to Phase 2 of Perfect 10 which allows for whole grains. I think that will help. As much as I wanted to stay on task, I really got tired of eating my sandwiches on lettuce!
The truth is, I do feel better when I limit sugar, caffiene, and processed foods. I like eating fruits and other 'real' foods. I actually prefer natural peanut butter, and I even like it on toasted whole wheat/whole grain bread.
I took the Perfect 10 blogger challenge, 3 weeks in Phase 1. While I can't claim it a complete success, I did make several positive changes and discoveries. And I lost 8 pounds!
So, I'm climbing back on the wagon today.
Now, if I could just find the motivation to exercise.
I know exercise is a must if I want to find a successful balance.
