4 weeks of drinking on average 6-7 glasses of water and 2 servings of vegetables and well the challenge is over.
Drinking water seems easy enough but I may be one of few people who just thinks water taste boring and finds no interest in it. So getting in those glasses of water was difficult for that reason and because who really drinks that much water.
Well luckily I used one of my phone apps to track the daily consumption of water intake. One of the changes that I made to facilitate my water intake was when I went out to eat instead of getting a soda or tea I opted for water.
Two benefits of that is water is free and it helped get that daily water intake.
Getting those vegetable servings was not difficult just because I like vegetables, broccoli is my favorite. In an effort to ensure I had all my vegetables for the next couple of weeks I bought frozen vegetables because I know myself and I tend to forget about the vegetables I’ve bought until they’ve gone bad.
Now I’ve always been told it’s not just about working out but nutrition can really make or break achieving that physical/fitness goal. My personal fitness goal has always been just to get toned because honestly weight is just a number people can weigh the same but it make look different.
I noticed a physical and overall felt better as I ate healthier. I didn’t feel tired throughout the day, I had energy to burn.
So of course one of the key parts of the Ab Challenge for I Love Kickboxing was to attend a minimum of 15 classes, pretty certain I surpassed that this month. Not only because of the challenge but you see the studio just got this fancy screen where you can see your heart rate and the calories you burn as a result of what zone you’re in. Needless to say I was quite intrigued to try it out (so I bought one) and it gave me the extra push I needed.
In addition to this there was a workout routine every week and because I lack the self-discipline to do the routine on my own (blame work, tired, etc) after every class I was that student to say, “can we do the ab challenge”.
And although the ab challenge is over and I may not have a six-pack. You will for sure still catch me at the pool this summer showing off my midriff. If anything this challenge has really shown me that nutrition is key (yes there is one person who has been harping this to me for years) but it’s not until you start to see your body transform that you really believe it.
My fourth week of the challenge was not the greatest we’ll just say I let life get the best of my eating habits. However going forth I will be trying to make that conscious effort to drink more water make healthier eating choices.
My job always has me on the go but it’s having healthy snacks on the go, water, picking a healthy place to eat not just a fast food restaurant.
On to the next challenge…
