The Weight Loss Plan for Losing 10lbs
My journey to lose weight after 40 has been full of ups and downs and the occasional moments where I gave up. I learned that diet was the key to success on this journey and that would be the only way I would reach my weight loss goals. I had read The Eat Clean Diet book and knew that was going to help me with losing weight after 40. So when Tosca Reno released The Eat Clean Diet Stripped book I knew I had to get it especially since I was struggling with losing the last 10lbs.
I’m almost finished with my first work week on The Eat Clean Diet Stripped weight loss plan. I truly have not been hungry and at times feel like I’m not eating enough. I still track my meals in The Eat Clean Companion. I feel that I bring more than enough food to make sure I don’t get hungry and to meet the servings requirement but I find myself not eating all of the foods. For the past two days, I gone home with food that I ate at dinner.
For those of you wondering if you can survive 28 days on a more restrictive weight loss plan of The Eat Clean Diet, I can honestly say it’s really not bad at all and I HATE restrictive diets and ALWAYS fail. That is the main reason why I don’t go on diets and follow the clean eating lifestyle. It’s way easier and less stressful and more satisfying. If you’re looking for recipes for maintaining your eat clean lifestyle try The Eat Clean Cookbook or the Clean Eating Magazine. Both have come in handy this week for giving me ideas and adding variety to my menu choices.
My workout on Day 3 was P90X’s Chest and Back. No matter how many times I have done this workout I still find it is a challenge. I started out doing all my pushups on my knees but I’ve gotten quite stronger over the past few weeks and I was able to do my pushups without getting on my knees. I was so proud of myself. Because I lacked upper body strength I didn’t even bother using the pull up bar to do the back exercises I always used the bands. Since I was starting the final phase of the 90 day workout I decided to graduate to the pull up bar. Although I do the various pull ups using the chair (one of the many variations to performing the pull up exercises), I’m feel stronger and am surprised at how many I can actually do. For day 4, it’s back to cardio. I will be doing an Insanity workout. I’m not sure if it’s going to be Pure Cardio or Cardio Power Resistance. It doesn’t matter which Insanity workout I choose they’re all equally challenging.
