I awoke this morning at 5:00AM in order to start my 24-day Challenge. I weighed in at 170 lbs (I am 5’6″ tall), right thigh measured 22 inches, hips, 41 inches, waist 34.5 inches, bust 39 inches, and bicep measured at 13 inches. I am not happy with my weight still, but I am down 20 pounds from where I was in August 2015. I will weigh in and measure again after my 10-day cleanse stage.
After I weighed and measured, I drank a glass of AdvoCare’s Spark Energy (Pink Lemonade), took a ProBiotic Restore tablet, and Catalyst(great for muscle tone). I then left for the gym and did crunches (I’m trying to get my abs down a few inches), and used the elliptical for almost six miles. It was raining in Plano, TX this morning, so that’s why I went to the gym.
I came home and had my Chocolate Mocha Meal Replacement Shake, along with Rehydrate to drink (Mango-Pineapple flavor). I packed my lunch (salmon, salad, pumpkin seeds, and an apple). I also made up my bottles of water (need to drink 85 oz. a day). For dinner, it’s a goulash using ground turkey, tomato sauces, veggie pasta, and vegetables.
Things to avoid on the 24-Day Challenge are soda (including diet),alcohol, creamy sauces, high-calorie salad dressings,sugar, candy,fried food, processed food, white flour, and partially hydrogenated oils. My biggest issue during the challenge is my love of chips, but I just don’t go to Mexican food places and keep multi-grain or quinoa chips at home. Fortunately, I work at Costco, and hey have a great variety of healthy foods to choose from.
I now have to get ready for work. I hope everyone has a great week, and say some prayers for me!
