The big question for me this past week was whether I would hit the target weight that I set myself in April.
April seems like such a long way away now. Sixteen weeks since I first consolidated my fasting, exercise and Herbalife eating program. I have completed 178 consecutive fasting days since I started in February and 115 days of Herbalife meals since April. I have also run/walked about 215km in training. I think those are impressive stats. This program has now become my way of life and I don’t feel the need to try anything else.
Yes, there were days when I didn’t quite hit my fasting target. On the other hand, there were days where I overshot my target by several hours. And there were days where I walked more than I had planned and then there were days where my feet seemed to fly across the tarmac. And yes, there were days where I ate such a filling lunch that I had no space for a Herbalife meal. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I didn’t stick to the program 100% and while this may have slowed down my progress, it is probably what has helped me to stick to the program.
So did I hit my target? Almost! I am 500g short of my target. That’s the size of a brick of butter. I have lost almost half of the weight that I have targeted overall. And let’s give me some credit – I did all of this during the South African winter months! I have great expectations of hitting my overall target before the December holidays.
I have every reason to be delighted at my progress. And I want to carry that delight into the coming week. We don’t pat ourselves on the back enough. I want to hold onto this delightful feeling and allow it to touch everything that I do in the coming week.
Here’s to a delightful week! Until next time ☕️
