Improved by 5 minutes, 7 seconds!!! in 2 weeks!
Also, I have been able to increase my weights each week, and went from a 30 second plank, to 3 sets of 60 second planks!
So yep I am pretty excited about my progress so far.
On the diet front, coffee has been a beast without my beloved half & half, but I really saw that coming, since I have tried non dairy plant based creamers before and never found one that I loved. Cheese and eggs haven't been as much of an issue as I thought. I found substitutes that work, but I can very easily just go without as well.
My goals going into February are to do the month with a raw vegan diet, focusing mainly on juices and smoothies made from fresh produce, nuts and seeds. I will be back with another update soon!
