This week was another struggle because I did everything right and found I did lose, but it was only 1.2 pounds. I’ll be honest – I was discouraged! After last week’s decision to face reality, I implemented what I had realized and thought it would mark an even greater loss! Alas, that was not the case!
So I’ve challenged myself to do some different things this week.
The first thing is to exercise at the same time each day. I think it could help my body understand what is going on (and a routine certainly isn’t going to hurt me either!).
Another thing I’ll be working hard to do is to eat consistently during the day and eat more “real food”. I’ve found that I’ve been eating a lot of quick meals but I may be struggling because I’m not eating from the whole food spectrum!
My first challenge – the apple!
I’m going to be really frank – while I love apples in recipes, I never eat apples on their own.
I think it is a matter of finding the apple that’s right for me….hence the Great Apple Challenge!
While at the grocery store yesterday, I chose 4 different apples. Some are new varieties to me while others are apples I’ve had before.
My challenge this week? To try each of these apples on their own and find out if there is an apple that speaks to me (and I do fully realize that apples don’t talk – but I’m hoping one will appeal to me enough that I start incorporating it into my diet!).
So who are the contenders this week?
I’ll let you know which one (if any) comes up as a winner! I’m hoping that expanding my horizons in terms of fruit will also make me endeavour to move out of my comfort zone to try more healthy foods that are new to me!
