Hi peeps! I know I’ve been MIA for a while, I got my dream job at my dream foundation. But I’m back and ready to roll (or write. Whatever)
Three days ago, I started Advocare’s 24 Day Challege. A sweet friend of mine is a distributor and it’s something I’ve wanted to try for a while. What I like most about it is that it IS NOT A CRASH DIET. It isn’t even really a diet. Eating during the challenge (and in life) is super duper important, and undereating can be just as bad as eating all junk.
So far, I’ve eaten a lot of eggs, turkey, raw veggies and fruits, and wheat bread. TBH, I don’t feel like I’m doing anything differently than normal (though my normal diet is chicken nuggets and tacos). I feel energized, full, and am consuming more calories than I did beforehand. I haven’t exercised at the gym yet, but it’s been Camp week at the Ronald McDonald House, so my steps have been averaging way over 10k a day and a lot of that has been sprinting around to get what we need for the kiddos, so I’ve counted that as exercise (partly because I’ve been to sleepy at the end of the day to do anything other than Netflix).
Now the weight question. Starting this, I was 138.8 pounds. I’m not big, but I never have been. However, I was a competitive dancer for 18 years and a new desk job has taken its toll. This morning, I was at 136. I’m not interested in losing weight fast, I’m interested in being healthy. But dropping a few pounds is fine by me (gross fact: the first phase makes you go to the bathroom ALOT so that’s probs where the 2 pounds came from).
I’m excited to see where I’m at in a few weeks with exercise and finding more foods that I enjoy. Stay tuned.
