Your Body is a Temple

Let's start this post by saying I have never been on a diet before. I don't buy into fad diet's or extreme changes in eating patterns. When my jeans started to get way too tight and I started to get uncomfortable with the fact that I could not longer call myself fit and healthy I knew that I needed to do something about it.

I believe that your body is a temple and that it is your responsibility to treat it like a gift. I have never really had to try to be slim, but now that I am in my mid 20's it's getting a little harder. I've picked up some bad eating habits from others and my busy lifestyle, but that is no excuse. So I started the 24-Day Challenge from AdvoCare.

I have heard really great things about the 24-Day Challenge from Co-workers and from friends, but of course I didn't want to start anything that was a "diet". My fiance and I decided to do it together and here is what happened on the first day.

Day 1:
Early Morning: Started my morning off with a Spark which is normal. I have loved Spark since I first tried it a few months ago. I get much more sustained energy than with coffee and mu mind seems to be more focused.
Breakfast: I ran off to work and decided to have my Fiber Drink at work. Big Mistake. I mean, with a name that includes fiber I should have realized that it would be thick, but boy was I surprised. This was so hard to drink. I actually had to go to the kitchen at work to drink it because I didn't want anyone to see the horrible faces I was making and gagging that was happening. I found some tips on how to deal with the fiber drink, I hope they help me tomorrow. I drank a bunch of water after to help me get the memory of the thick drink out of my mind. I ate a banana and I couldn't eat anything else for a awhile.
Snack: Veggies Chips
30 minutes before lunch: AdvoCare Spark
Lunch: Black Bean Soup, apple, water
Snack: Carrots and Hummus
Dinner: OmegaPlex, Meat and Veggies
Snack: Dried Fruit
Bedtime: Herbal Cleanse Caplets

Maybe I can last 24 days. Have you done the 24-Day Challenge? What were your results?

Love Joy Peace,
