Last time I blogged, I blogged about the Advocare 24 day challenge. I completed the Cleanse portion (days 1- 10). I did very well staying off coffee, added sugars and simple carbs. I only had 1 cheat night, and my stomach didn't like me much at all! I only lost 2 pounds during the cleanse phase, but I did feel better, so I am considering that a NSV. I just hope the weightloss kicks it up a notch for all of the supplements I have been swallowing and all of the money it costs to get them.
Yesterday was the first day of the Burn phase so I decided to treat myself to some diet pop, which I used to drink constantly. It tasted SOOOO SWEET! I couldn't drink it! Then I had my usual favorite home coffee drink. It was good, but I felt so wired after I drank it. It amazed me that after 10 days without these things I could taste and feel such a difference. I plan to stay off diet pop and switch to half caf or decaf on the coffee, just because I love the taste so much! I am continuing to avoid added sugar, simple carbs and fried foods and focus my diet on lean proteins, healthy fats, complex (whole grain) carbs, fruits and lots of veggies.
Here is to another good week!
