120 Day Challenge #3 – Update for April 10 – May 14 2013 – Day 33


On 10 April 2013, I started my third 120-Day challenge. Taking what I’d learned from successes and failures over the first two 120-day challenges, I began revising my approach. I won’t bore you with what failed. What seems to be working now is the following:

  • Going for brisk walks in the evenings (about 30 minutes).
  • Increasing my morning workout from about 20 minutes up to 30 minutes.
  • Reducing bread intake.
  • Avoiding chips and sweets.
  • Increasing water intake.
  • Going to bed early.
  • Taking multi-vitamins.
  • Staying away from coffee since it may disrupt sleep and/or cause arthritis-like symptoms for some people.
  • Drinking the iced green tea latte from Starbucks with extra Matcha powder. The milk may offer some additional calcium absorption which is known to help with weight loss.

So, that’s my current formula for weight loss. It’s fairly simple and has nothing extreme.

“One of the meals in this week’s food plan from BurtFamilyFoodServices.com was the Tofu and Snap Peas in Caramelized Leek Sauce with Spiced Rice and Beet Greens pictured above. With each week’s meal plan, Dave provides a list showing what meals are included and how to best prepare them. The containers of food are coded for easy identification. For optimal flavor, care is given to indicate which meals are best eaten earlier in the week and which can keep longer under refrigeration. From my experience, the food keeps well and tastes great even when eaten a few days later in the week. So, that’s a plus.” ~ Greg Johnson
