Here’s a recent photo of me: These Cowgirl Tuff jeans and Cruel Girl top were a little tight when I got them for Christmas. Not anymore!

I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to get this last journal entry posted, but here we go:

For my final week, I won’t be removing anything else from my diet. Instead, I’ll be doing my best to avoid all the foods as much as possible. Last week and this week will be a little bit harder, as I recently moved. With many of my kitchen and cooking supplies in transit, I ended up eating out a lot over the past weekend.

Also, as a result of packing and moving, I was unable to get in my 3-4 workouts. I was only able to take one kickboxing class. My plan for this week is to take as many classes as possible to prepare myself for the holidays.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about my experience, and I’d love to hear if it worked for you.

Weight lost: 6-7 pounds

After the diet
It’s now been a couple of months since I did this diet and fitness plan, and I’m really glad I did. Overall, I think it was a really good experience. I’ve pretty much maintained the weight loss (even though I haven’t been following the diet quite as strictly). However, it’s important to note that I did increase my activity significantly. I’m at the gym working out, running, or taking a kickboxing class nearly every day.

I’ve also signed myself up for personal training with one of the trainers who was a source for the “Chaps-Fit Plan.” It was a lot of fun to write the article and to blog about my experience for you. I learned a lot through the research of the article, and I’ve made some important food swaps a permanent thing. I continue to drink only almond milk, and with the exception of Greek yogurt and some occasional feta cheese, I don’t eat much dairy. I stay away from bread and other grains as much as possible (although I refuse to give up cereal!).

I hope you also enjoyed the article and food journal, and that you found it beneficial!
