Well, this is hard. I keep thinking I should have done the 9 day instead of the 30 day…I’m losing weight and I’m definitely feeling better and lighter, but I haven’t been doing the plan as strictly as I should. On my “cleanse” day, I went to an event that had some food samples and I had a chip with hummus and a sliver of pizza. I’m also a little worried about my body adjusting too much over the course or the 30 days to the reduced calories. I don’t plan to go back to the way I was eating before, but I also don’t want to set myself up for failure either. So, I thought it would be good to incorporate a higher calorie day once a week just to disrupt things a bit. But is that just rationalizing?
I’m back on track today. This week is really going to be a test. I have several offsite meetings that will have catered meals and will be traveling for a one-day meeting. I with I had ordered the individuals packs instead of the large canisters, so it would be easier to transport the shakes. so, I’m going to have to think about that one…plastic baggies?I received some samples of the bars, so maybe I’ll take those.
In other news, the taste of the shake is getting better. I’m used to the Gourmet Chocolate Designer Whey shake, which is absolutely delicious blended with almond milk. I think it probably has some added sweeteners, though. Damn you, splenda!
Anyway, onwards and upwards! My goal is to drop 15 lbs during this 30 day cleanser. Going to make it happen!
