Recap: 30 day challenge of eating no sugar or white carbs and no missed workouts
The first 12 days went almost perfectly. I ate mainly meat, fish & veg. Had light meals and some fruit in the evenings. I went from 86.9kg to 83.5kg - a 3.4kg weight loss. Training was basically a daily 5 minute HIIT workout but I managed to get two 4km runs in there as well.
The next 12 days were a disaster. During the Chinese New Year family gatherings I ate a lot of rice and noodle. There were about a half dozen beers and cider in the mix as well.
I also missed every single workout after that. There have been many work related projects and CNY events to deal with and I've been pretty burnt out. Of course, these are just circumstances that are shared by almost everyone who has a full-time job and kids (and I don't even have kids!). Life gets in the way, and sometimes it ain't easy.
I make no excuses for failing. Knowing that I screwed up big time and I have to do better next time, the 30 day challenge is hereby reissued starting tomorrow, from 12th Feb to 12th Mar.
