Hello, it has been 30 days since I started my #Daily10 challenge, where I challenged myself to low-impact exercise and a calorie limit. The idea being what change could I effect over a 30 day period with a ripple effect – after all ripples eventually become waves, right? So, how did I do?
30 Days Ago
I started the #Daily10 weighing 261lbs, the low-impact exercise, (due to niggling injuries of my youth) of a 10 minute walk at lunch, (#Daily10) and a more low impact exercise after work, like walking the dog etc. I coupled this with lower calorie intake of about 1800 a day, the math was simple burn more calories than I was consuming and weight loss will happen. I wasn’t expecting huge changes, or to regain the body of my youth, but a change in attitude and I posted my progress on Twitter.
How Did I do?
Well, here I stand 30 days later and here are the scores on the boards.
Weight on 11/01/2015: 261lbs
Weight on 11/30/2015: 247lbs
And I’ve gone down two pant sizes!!!
All I did was increase my exercise (just more walking), dropped snacking and kept to a rough 1800 calorie count (not strictly enforced), ate three times a day and didn’t drastically change my diet. I’ve lost 14lbs just by this low-impact #Daily10 change and this is during a month with a Feast Day built-in.
I am very happy with myself 🙂
I feel thinner, a little fitter, not so tubby, very happy and I am fitting back into my old pants (as is the wife.)
Well, I mentioned at the start of my #Daily10 Challenge I stated I had a target weight in mind and I am two-thirds there and confident I will hit it, so the #Daily10 is going to extend into December and might bring some other changes. Not with a huge revolution, but in incremental 0.01% changes. If I can do this… Then what is your excuse?
Take up the #Daily10, it really does work and start making ripples my friends 🙂
