A week on the 777 Challenge

This week I’ve been doing the 777 Challenge in a concerted effort to really start getting some decent results. Last week I was only partially on-plan – most days I was around 90%, but there were several days where I was on 0% (or possibly even into the minus numbers – oops!), but due to the fact that most days I’d done not too badly at all, I only had a gain of half a pound, when I really had expected a little more.

I was determined that I wouldn’t let it get any worse, that I would get my head back in the zone and really kill it this week – hence the 777 Challenge. So, here’s what I had this week:
