In It To WIN IT!

So I'm in on a challenge.  My trainer has a team and we are competing against other teams for most body fat percentage lost.  My trigger response was no. You don't want me on your team.  Historically I lose weight at a slug's pace.  It's ridiculous. I keep losing, but so painfully slow it's almost laughable.
But I quickly realized that this was something I needed to do.  My own Biggest Loser episode.  I have to cut out anything with higher fat for 12 days.  I don't eat a lot of high fat foods but I definitely allow myself the occasional indulgence so I don't feel deprived.  But not for 12 days.  I keep repeating to myself, "What can you not do for 12 days?"

I did my weigh in for the challenge.  I won't give you all the dirty details because....well, because I'm still a bit ashamed of them.  I have the second highest body fat percentage on the team.  This was a somewhat humiliating realization.  And some added pressure because I clearly need to pull my weight (pun intended) in this challenge.  The good news is that I also got my measurements taken and I have made some pretty significant progress as far as losing inches.  That was uplifting and I will focus on those numbers to motivate me!

Game plan is clean eating.  Lower intensity cardio.  Some 2 a day work outs.  And weight training with lower weight at higher reps. 

I got this.
