After the first 10 day challenge I've lost 5 pounds, or 2.34% of my body weight. For measurements I've gained 1/2 and inch in all measurements, I'm thinking PMS is to blame :)
I purchased a 10 pound Shred book that has exercise and meal plans for 31 days, so I begin it today. This will be my exercise challenge for the next 31 days. My eating challenge for the next 10 days will be to follow the meal plan, but also to eat a new food every day of the meal plan, so it will require some food replacements.
Today I'll be replacing some of the vegetables in dinner with Swiss chard.
Other vegetables and fruits I'll be trying over the next 10 days:
I need to find a few more options, squashes are something I don't have a lot of in my diet so that's an easy replacement. I might also try the following which are rare in my diet: kale, avocado, sweet potato. Although I really want to try things I've never had before.
