Squat challenge feedback: Day 30

Squat challenge feedback: Day 30

Hi All, so its day 30 and unfortunately I did not complete the challenge, with only a few days left, I had become despondent with putting on weight when I was trying to eat healthy especially at lunch times. On Sunday my cousin was telling to me that while I was eating my salads I was making little mistakes like adding salad dressing.

I also think that if anything this challenge has taught me that it’s possible to tone up at home with virtually no financial expense. I do however need to change my eating habits and lifestyle. I know it’s rather disappointing that I hadn’t completed it, I guess I get tips for being honest. I’ve never claimed to be an expert, but I am like many other first time moms who just don’t have the time and energy to exercise. I won’t give up though, never. I will do another challenge but I think it will be one that will suit my time and lifestyle.

Below is some salads I’ve made for lunch. The last pic is a salad from Woolworths.

Feedback on the challenge: I definitely can see a change in the lower part of my body, everything is a lot tighter, toned and smooth, so it can be done.

Thank you so much for the support in this challenge as well as some of my readers who have done the challenge with me, and if you completed the challenge, well done, your dedication is inspiring. Until next time…

  1. I wanted to comment on the foods you posted: a ton of simple carbs and starch is what I see mixed in with a few other food items. There was a BBC show (on my blog: http://cluelessdoctors.com/2014/10/20/starch-no-problem-they-are-fiber-did-you-know-that/) where they showed how to convert starch (simple carbs) into what they called “resistant starch” which no longer absorbs like starch and carbs but becomes sort of like an insoluble fiber. All they did was cooked the pasta, then cooled it (or froze it) and then reheated it. They suggest that when you buy break, for example, freeze it in pieces and take and thaw or toast. That way 50% of the carb (spiking the sugar and insulin) is gone. They tested it on some people by taking their blood sugar reading before the meal and for 2 hours every 15 minutes after like diabetes ill do. Then they compared those who ate the fresh to those who ate it cold and those who ate it reheated. The reheated spiked the insulin 50% less. 🙂 So you can convert even bad foods–like pasta–into better ones–like fiber–by cooling them and reheating them. 🙂 I hope this helps!
