I have officially hit the one month mark, yay me! It hasn’t been easy and I haven’t always stuck to my eating plan but here I am.
I didn’t post my week 3 results because it was not a good week. After making such good progress in my first 2 weeks, I gained back 1.1kg of what I lost. Boy was I ashamed, i was so ashamed that my gain was the best kept secret, not even my tonga bull (for my international readers, this is what we call men of a certain tribe; Tonga, in Zambia) knew, infact not even the CIA could have hacked this one. It also affected my motivation and my overall mood, but looking back, I shouldn’t have been surprised. I did not stick to my eating plan because I did not plan my meals (that saying about failing to plan and planning to fail- its true), I over indulged at the ladies lunch that one of our Pastors invited us for, in hindsight I should have prepared a more healthy alternative for myself.
So now the cat is out of the bag and I am at the end of week 4. This was a better week for me because I worked hard, exercise-wise and my eating was better, not 100% but better. This is something i need to work on. Oh! I nearly had a breakdown mid-week but a picture posted by a friend of his transformation helped me get back up. I am more motivated and more mentally prepared.
So 1 month in and my total loss is 4.2kgs.
All in all, my failure in week 3 did me good. I now know that this journey will be challenging. I also know that exercise without clean eating means NOTHING and vice versa. I know that even when I fall, I can still get back up, dust myself off and try again. Most importantly I know that His grace is sufficient for me, for His strength is made perfect in my weakness-2 Corinthians 12:9
