Paleo Challenge Day 14 Check In
I have now finished 14 days of the Paleo Challenge, and only have another 11 to go. It feels good to be more than halfway finished. During the week it is never very difficult to stick to my diet. I have work to distract me from eating but when I drink heavily sometimes on the weekend it is tough to stay clean. This weekend a friend through a going away party, so I had to go out. Somehow I managed to fight the desire to eat junk food even while drunk. I didn’t overeat too much this weekend. Having this challenge has been so helpful to me in avoiding junk food. I will feel a craving for the junk food but I don’t want to give in and lose the challenge. I will use this as a tool in the future to cheat less on paleo.
All in all my weight loss is going well. Originally my plan was to lose 1.5 pounds and drop down from 175.5 to 174 this week but I hit that goal early in the week and decided to set a more ambitious goal of 171.5. I am happy to announce that I was able to achieve my weight loss target this week and hit exactly 171.5. My goal for next week is to get to 169.5.
All of this weight loss is really paying off. My body fat percentage has now dropped to 9% as of today. This is the first week that I have been in the single digits for BF %. My abs are starting to look really good. I think that I can get my BF % down to 7%, at which point my abs will look amazing. Then I will go ahead and post some photos.
