Happy Friday, dear reader! I am currently in Week #6 of the Fast Burn Challenge, and I’m flying by the seat of my pants. On Monday morning, I weighed in at 154 pounds. I lost pound last week with a total loss of 7.5 pounds since starting the Fast Burn Challenge on 19 April. My week has been a bit fractured and all over the place since officially starting my summer break. I’m already out of my routine which entails going to bed late and waking up later in the morning Thankfully, I have been on this program long enough to know what to eat and when to eat, so all has not been lost.

Week #6 begins the third and final part of the plan (Acceleration) with four weeks left to complete this challenge. While my week feels slightly willy-nilly, I am still hitting most of my goals for the week. I tried two new recipes that were both delicious. One saving grace for me is having the right kinds of foods in the house. If all else fails, I can throw together a salad or fix a veggie plate with a serving of brown rice.

Kudos to Me for…

  • meeting my daily water intake goal.
  • trying the Sumptuous Strawberry Shake. Yum-Yum!
  • trying the Gramma’s Old-Fashioned Scratch Pancakes. Delightful!
  • continuing to eat more veggies.
  • meeting my daily exercise goals.
  • choosing wisely when eating at a conference.

Challenges

Unfortunately, I did not plan or prep my meals this week. So far, Monday has been the only day that I followed the food plan for the entire day that is outlined in the book. On Tuesday, I attended a Teacher Leader Summit in New Orleans. While I ate the catered lunch (salisbury steak, green beans, small lemon square; declined mashed potatoes and bread), I packed water and healthy snacks to consume throughout the day and ate a decent dinner.

My TRF for this week has not been consistent. I have either been on the IF schedule of 14:10 or 16:8. My body feels the inconsistency. For the remainder of this week, I will stick with 14:10. Fortunately, I am waiting two hours after waking up to eat breakfast and going to sleep at least two hours, if not more, after eating my last meal.

Earlier this morning, I felt a slight twinge of disappointment in myself because I had the expectation that this week would be perfect because I am out of school for the summer. Thank heavens, those feelings dissipated quickly, so I can get back on track and enjoy this beautiful day. My family and I do not have any set plans this weekend, so my hope is to reorganize, finish this week strong, and plan for next week. Happiness!
