STUDY REFLECTION

This was the activity that I was most excited about because I really wanted to challenge myself to lose weight. First I tried following the Paleo diet, but after a couple of weeks of following that diet I had to change course because I felt bad all the time. I then switch to a low calorie and low fat diet that catered better to my energy needs. I wanted to do a lot better at this challenge, but I guess I can take it as a positive that I followed my planned diet for 20 out of the 30 days. I did not do as well following the workout schedule and I only worked out for 10 of the 30 days. Spring break occurred right in the middle of my challenge and I did a poor job of sticking to the diet and the workout schedule during that time. One change that I am going to make moving forward is to workout in the afternoon because it is very hard for me to get up super early and workout. One positive that I can take away from this weight loss challenge is that I lost a total of 12 pounds over the 30 day period. This challenge is a step in the right direction and it give me the motivation to continue to lose weight.
