Week 2 .. 8 Week Fast Track Challenge Update

I made it through Week 2 with not too many hiccups!

I'm sticking to the menu plan with some switch arounds here and there. Lunch and dinner always to plan. Breakfasts and snacks I usually rotate 3 choices .. as I said I'm happy to eat the same thing almost every day for breakfast but I'm trying to stick with the variety. Variety is good!

Exercise last week didn't really ring any bells though! I hit the wall on Wednesday morning after an early morning workout. Not sure what came over me but I was completely exhausted and hungry!! Again, my concern surfaced that I wasn't taking in enough calories. I solved my problem by listening to my body and having a quick nap and eating a bit more .. only good choices though! Extra serve of fruit and yogurt .. no chocolate bars .. maybe that's my problem?

Each week of the challenge there is an online meeting that Shannan heads up, with the intention of answering participants questions. We ask them via the community forum and he answers "immediately". I haven't been able to participate in the live meeting as it is right in the middle of my daughter's swimming training, so I watch Shannan's video and read the questions and answers when I get a chance to sit down.

If you are looking for a "community" feel with motivation and support then this facet of the challenge is great! From what I have read on the forums everyone is supportive and encouraging ... exactly what we need sometimes when it feels like we are the only ones doing it tough!

Two weeks down and I'm happy with my progress .. I'm not perfect so I'm going to admit to having a few pieces of chocolate over the weekend and a glass of wine. I REALLY enjoyed both of them!
I might have to work a little bit harder this week though, Mr Fit Mum and I are off to dinner and the theatre tonight ... I wonder what dessert will be?

Do you have support when you are trying to stick to a diet and exercise program? 
If not, what type of support would you like?

It is so hard sticking to a healthy eating plan, so many temptations in the way. Sounds like you have been "good" though, enjoy your evening out:)

I like the idea of online Forums but sometimes (in the case of the one I participated in) it got pretty overwhelming and full-on!
