Yes! The Six Week Nutritarian challenge is now in the books! I’ve been covering it week to week, but what did it look like all put together? I obviously didn’t ace each week, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t highlights or lessons.
I wanted to ace the sixth week, but work messed up those plans. It wasn’t a bad ending to the challenge but I could have obviously done much better.
Despite my bitching and moaning I actually really liked my first six week challenge. With that one now in the books it’s time to look into doing another one. It’s not going to look drastically different than the first, but some of the parameters are going to be refined.
The six week challenge is winding down this week, and after yet another week of deprivation at social events all I can think about is my first day of freedom afterward.
I have to be honest with myself, week 5 has been the worst one, in terms of adherence so far. Not only did I bottom out scores on two categories, but I was about fed up with the dietary restrictions of the nutritarian diet as well.
The fourth week of my diet challenge is now behind me. With the added formalism to my grading I can really keep myself more honest about how things are going. As usual, while I’m able to keep the diet dialed in, other things just don’t get the attention they need. As schedules get more compressed and busy I often just don’t have the energy to get the exercise things done, or it’s a trade-off between sleep and exercise. Hopefully next week I’ll be able to address that with some schedule changes.
The third week of my diet challenge is now behind me. I added some formalism to how I’m grading myself on each category each day, and therefore the weekly grade. I’m getting faster and stronger too, but for some reason I’m now being haunted by food dreams.
