What am I eating???

So I have made it to Day 10 of the 24 Day Challenge. I’ve had a lot of friends asking if I can eat. YES! In fact, I think I am eating quite a bit more, at least for breakfast than usual.

The challenge focuses on clean eating…here’s a link to the diet guidelines. I’m in the cleanse phase, so that means I am taking some probiotic and fish oil vitamins (in addition to my daily multi). Some days I have a fiber drink. With 10 grams of fiber, it really fills me up!

As you can see, there’s a big emphasis on hydration. Most days, I’ve consumed 80 oz. of water, but I’m not perfect. The days I do, I feel and look better.

On page 10 of the guidelines are suggested foods. Basically, each meal is a healthy protein, complex carb and a fruit or veggie. Most restaurants can accommodate this, but of course it is easier to prep my own food (though that is some work!). I also threw in a few My Fit Foods meals this week to help with a busy schedule and menu variety.

Tomorrow I move to the Max Phase. I plan to get back to the gym tonight and keep that part up for the remaining days so I can continue to see progress and feel healthier 🙂

Yes, it’s bold that I’m putting this all out there. But I want y’all to know I’m a real gal who sees real numbers on the scale and measuring tape. And this is with me already being semi-conscious about being healthy. I’m scared to think what the numbers would be if I threw all caution to the wind.
