So since my last report, Jeff and I have started the Advocare 24 day challenge. We are on Day 4. I can tell you that I very much dislike the Fiber drink, but eh, I can get it down. I can say that I am never hungry. I feel like I am eating constantly, but it is good clean foods. Tonight I am making a chili. Looks very similar to what we normally make...we shall see.
I can tell you that after the 4 days (well, 3.5, if you wish to be technical) that Jeff looks thinner. I haven't worn 'real' clothes since Sunday so since I really can't tell a difference in pajama bottoms, tank top and sweatshirt. So, if you know me, I need results, so I scale hopped. I must say I am VERY happy! We took pictures and measurements but I refuse to post anything until the end of the 24 days.
I/we decided to do this together. It has been so very helpful. I have been in horrible eating habits in months. I needed a way to break the cycle, get healthy, stay healthy...2014 is going to be a busy year. February - Hadlee's baptism (my cousin's daughter) March - Lillie's 1st birthday, July - beach trip, August - beach trip and Nicholas and Kara's wedding also Chip and Sarah's wedding. I need to get myself in shape and stay there!
My ultimate goal (shhhh) I want to run a sub 2 hour half marathon. I want to get weight off so I am able to run faster/longer. I don't care if the clock/chip time is 1:59:59. I just want to see a 1 in the first space! I am not sure whether I will do a spring of fall half (maybe both)
You can do the 24 day challenge every 90 days...so we hope to do this 3 times before August. I can't wait to see where this journey gets us.
