I have shared previously in this post that I have been exercising more regularly and have also started on a low carb diet.
It has been close to three months (since mid June) of 3 times a week gym sessions and about 5 weeks (since end of July) of low carb diet and I am really glad that there are some results showing.
Actually the real lost in weight and fats only happened when there was a change in my diet.
I wrote about being on a Dukan Diet but I didn’t quite manage to proceed into the Cruise Phase of the Dukan Diet. The first phase was the Pure Proteins phase which was also known as the Attack Phase. The Cruise Phase is an alternating of Pure Proteins and Proteins & Vegetables Day. As I really love my vegetables a lot, I couldn’t quite go back to eating Pure Proteins the following day.
Instead I got off the Dukan Diet and chose to just go on a simple and straightforward low carb diet. And so far it has served me quite well.
When I started out working out 3-4 times a week, I experienced slight drop in weight of about 0.3-0.5kg, which some might argue that it is waterloss. But I did benefit from the exercising in terms of toning and definitions in my arms, abs, butt and thighs from the exercise.
When I started off on the Dukan Diet, my weight was 54.2kg. That was about 5 weeks ago.
As of last week (Thurs), I managed to shave off 2.3kg and weigh 51.9kg!
It was really an amazing surprise to me as it has been eons since I saw such a weight on the scale and it is a great encouragement for the hard work and discipline that I have put in in the past couple of months.
I have started another blog, www.everesteats.com, to share my weight loss journey, exercises, food and anything that relates to a healthier lifestyle.
Do drop by and maybe share some ideas, tips and encouragement for health and fitness.
