I survived the first day of the 30 Days to Healthy Living Challenge. Remember from my introduction post where I said, “It Can Be Done!“? Well, I forgot how hard it is the first day or two or 7. LOL
It all started few days ago with getting the boxes in the mail. See the unboxing video and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel. 🙂
What is included for the 30 days of FUN…
Chocolate protein shake mix (OH SO YUMMY!), Vanilla protein, Greens balance dietary supplement, Daily fiber boost dietary supplement, Pomegranate energy fizz stick, Citrus energy fizz stick, Two boxes of herbal detox tea, Digestion plus dietary supplement, and the 7 day body cleanse.
What is also included during the challenge is a Facebook group. It actually start about a week before the 30 Days to Healthy Living Challenge began. I’m so glad. It has a bunch of tips, ideas about what is to come, what a sample day is like, encouraging posts, interaction with other people going through the challenge, and more.
My beginning stats…
147.8 pounds BMI 26.2 (overweight)
So for the next 4 weeks I’ll be posting a weekly update on what I’m doing each day, a food journal, emotions, etc. I’ll start my food journal here for day 1…
Wake up 7:20am
WATER – A large glass of water when I woke up
Take kids to school at 8am, premake two shakes. Leave for work around 9:15 and drink my first shake on the way
SHAKE – Two scoops of vanilla protein shake, ice, water, and half a frozen bananna
FIZZ STICK – I started getting hungry around 11:30 and have a fizz stick to tide me over
SHAKE – Two scoops of chocolate protein shake, ice, water, and a scoop of Greens balance dietary supplement; had this shake around 12:30; decided to add the greens balance to the vanilla shake tomorrow morning because there is no sense with messing with my chocolate!
Leave work to pick up kids around 2:30 and took a detox tea with me in the car. Ran a bunch of errands with the kids and hubby, then homework time, then Awanas studying, kids played while I cooked dinner. Mmmm dinner.
DINNER – Chicken avocado soup. YUM! I was apprehensive at first about throwing avocados in a soup but it was DELICIOUS. My kids weren’t as enthusiastic but at least tried it. LOL
WATER & MORE WATER – I’m starting to realize the “hunger cues” I thought I’ve been having is actually that I’m thirsty. Interesting.
Now it’s midnight and little hungry because I’m sleepy. Never-the-less, I want to finish this post.
DAY 1 RECAP
I MADE IT! I’m a late night snacker and still didn’t cave. I plan to not “cheap” (aka deviate from the plan) for the entire 30 days. What’s that saying about making something a habit, do it for 30 days and it becomes one? That’s my plan!
