An alternative title to this post could have been “Advocare Challenge: Thank the LORD it’s over.”
I first mentioned last week that Huebie and I were doing the 10 day cleanse phase of the 24 day Advocare Challenge again. And I’m pretty sure I said something like “it’s only 10 days.” Well…..all I have to say right now is that the 10 days were WAY harder than I thought they would be.
The first day was of course torture. We were both constantly talking about all the good food we wanted that we never ate anyways, but when you’re starving EVERYTHING sounds amazing. By the 2nd day we were good. Moving right along in our little challenge, the days are going by quickly, we made some really good food, and then the weekend hits. And Huebie’s bff comes into town on Sunday. You can’t force a house guest to be compliant with us right? So we weren’t 100% faithful this time around. I know, I know, you’re thinking “but it was only 10 days.” Well, if you want my opinion it should be 7 days. 1 full week is all you need.
Back to work on Tuesday we did much better. For some reason I always do better at work. Maybe it’s that I’m so busy I don’t have time to sit around and think about all the yummy food I could be eating.
So, we did it, yes. Were we 100% this time around? No, but we stuck with it, got back on track when we got derailed and I do feel much better already, which is what I wanted. My skin and digestive system are thanking me.
