Bikini Ready Challenge- Week 2 Recap

Wow! I’m already halfway through this challenge which is crazy to think about since it feels like I’ve just started. Let’s recap this past week.

My legs feel lighter- I know that steady training has also contributed to running getting easier but my legs legitimately feel lighter. For years running was difficult because I couldn’t pick up my legs, I would plod along and my butt and legs would feel like they were weighing me down.

Food prep is getting easier- I think I’ve spent more time in the kitchen in two weeks than I have in the last 3 months! Holy does eating healthy tale planning and time but it’s getting easier. I bring my ipad in and turn on The Office on Netflix since I’ve seen it a million times I can just listen to it and know exactly what’s going on.

Takes time to save time– Meal planning feels like it takes so much time but in the end it saves you a butt load of time. I know sitting down writing out my week and then looking through my fridge and pantry to see what I had and what I didn’t felt like it was a waste of a perfectly good summer afternoon. But when the food is planned and purchased and prepped- you save loads of time not having to plan meals and snacks every single day, I I have a lot more time in the mornings.

Cooking can be easy– Did I mention this last week? The recipes you’re given in this challenge are so delicious but so easy that even I can do it! I wish these ladies would do a full cookbook because I’ll be making these dishes long after the challenge is over.

Loss not showing in pictures– This was my third round of pictures and I was really hoping to see a noticeable difference but there isn’t any yet which is frustrating. My measurements say I’ve lost a little, the scale says I’ve lost some, but the pictures don’t. It’s really frustrating but I mean really, how big of a difference was I expecting in two weeks? I have to be realistic.

This meme exactly describes my final thought, that I’m FEELING better. I have more energy, I feel lighter, and yes, I feel thinner.

      Thanks Jo! I fell great! So full of natural energy, haven’t had refined sugar in two weeks and I no longer get caffeine headaches if I don’t drink coffee. It’s been great so far! Thanks for the blog love! I’m kind of obsessed with it. 🙂

    […] I was never a very good 400m runner and 60 seconds is about what a high school runner would do. I miss the 30 second strides! Ha ha ha. My legs have felt great all week! They feel lighter than normal and I’m crediting some of that to a bit of weight loss from my participation in the Bikini Ready Challenge. […]
