Daniel Fast and Engine 2
Thursday, February 17, 2011
I'm so excited. In 2 months since my last blog (sorry!!!), I've lost an additional 19 lbs. Not quite as impressive as my previous 2 month check in, but you know what...I'm pretty excited about it! So that puts me just over 57 lbs lost in 4 months. WOOOO HOOO! i'm totally thrilled.
In January, I was doing a fast at church (Daniel Fast) and that limited me in so many areas, but also helped cleanse out my system. I really liked some of the results I got, so I switched it up a bit and took part in a challenge at work (Engine 2 Diet - 28 day challenge), and I'm feeling AMAZING! It is almost a vegan diet, except it really limits sodium, oils, and NO "whites". I thought it'd be really hard, but honestly...it's pretty easy. It's just taking the time to prepare. I've been redoing a lot of my favorite dishes to fit into the E2diet. LOVE it! I'm having so much fun. Sure... there is still some junk in my house for my under 2 daughter, but she's gradually making the change with me. I think I may stick with this past the 28 days (though let's be honest... wine may be making a gradual come back in my diet. 2 months with no wine is driving me crazy!!!)
