Wednesday was Day 10 of the AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge I am doing. Man did those 10 days take a while to pass. I swear it feels like a month ago I started this challenge. I have had so major ups and downs in those 10 days, but I feel as though I have come out on top!
So I was suppose to not eat any sugar, processed food, white flour, or alcohol. Basically anything bad for you. Well I failed that one miserably. I have had it all. I was hoping to stick to at least the no alcohol, but it was my friends 21st Birthday on the 10th day and it was not going good, so I took her out to dinner and well you know…you can't not drink on someone's 21st!
I also realized that I need to be more prepared with meals. Last friday I was babysitting all night and that was my first major downfall. We made cookies, we had spaghetti (I didn't eat the noodles just the meatballs), and I am a muncher and had some chocolate covered raisins. I felt rotten after that night.
All that negativeness out the way… I did lose 5 pounds!!!! That is the tastes 5 pounds I have ever lost. And other than no sugar, I found the diet and plan to be pretty easy. Like I mentioned before, the diet is very similar to one I try to uphold anyways. But no sugar?! Ugh I die for sweets…especially ice-cream! I have not had ice-cream though!
Here is what a normal meal for me is:
6 oz of protein
lots of veggies
a couple little tators (only for lunch though)
I am feeling so much better right now. I really cannot wait to keep going with this and lose more! I definitely am back on the eating clean train. When all is said and done, I will add in some cheat meals on the weekend, but I want my weekday meals to be clean!
