Cleaning up - Week four

Cleaning up - Week four

How fast was that!  The first month of the year is officially over.  Hard to believe how fast time flies by.

Compared to last week this one was easy, the desire to eat sweet foods has gone, and I'm not having consuming thoughts about cheese anymore.

The changes I've seen in myself in the last 30 days are amazing, this includes; drastic improvement to my quality of sleep, I started at 5 hours a night restful sleep, I'm now getting 6.5 -7 hours restful sleep, if our bedroom was cooler than 25 degrees I think this would be even better.  My hair and nails are in great condition, both are growing fast but are in good condition, same goes for my skin.  No acne breakouts in the last 3 weeks, all of the chicken skin lumps on the backs of my arms and legs has gone (haven’t even looked at the exfoliator yet).  My energy levels are reasonable across the day; I feel tired at points of the day but do not wake up exhausted anymore.

Now for the cherry on top, since 1 January I've lost a total of 5.6 kg, dropped 2.5% body fat and a total of 32.5 cm across my body, that is a huge step towards my goals for the year.  This is the best shape I have been in for quite some time. 

Anyway, back to the important thing, the food, even though it's been hard at times to keep to guidelines I set myself I have actually enjoyed keeping my diet this clean. I've decided that I'm going to keep going and see what I can achieve by the end of February. I may not keep 100% strict as I have this month but I'm going to keep as close as I can.

For those of you who are interested I've been keeping track of everything I've had and been sharing on social media to keep myself honest #keepmehonest

I've also got the food plan that I have followed for the last week.
