Advocare 24-day Challenge - Day 1

First things first... The scale.


Damn. Here I was fooling myself into thinking I was doing better, or maintaining. 

Yeah, right.

Next, measurements.

Equally depressing.

But it was all fuel for the fire. 

I skipped my morning coffee for a Spark. Which was fine except for the caffeine withdrawal headache all day. 

I have read that the fiber drink is nasty, but I was fortunate to get the new flavorless kind. Mixed it with Spark and couldn't tell it was even in there. 

Eating every three hours was a challenge... Because I'm in the habit of eating constantly? I don't know but I definitely wasn't hungry. 

Pre-breakfast: Fiber and spark 
Breakfast: 2 eggs, 3 slices center cut bacon, one bite each of banana and watermelon (banana was too soft, taste tested watermelon). 
Morning snack: watermelon, 2 protein bites
Lunch: Leigh's baked pasta
Dinner: Mexican shredded chicken breast on two high-fiber wraps, small amount of shredded cheese. Watermelon.
Late snack: two rice cakes with peanut butter

My Advocare coach, who is a good friend and neighbor, MEAL PREPPED for me yesterday! Talk about setting me up for success! She made some protein balls that are so good! She also made a whole-wheat pasta dish, egg muffins, and a bag of Mexican marinated chicken that you throw in the crockpot and shred.

It was all great and filling. I plan on making some turkey meatloaf muffins, but I should have enough meals to get me to Sunday. Then I will meal prep myself.

I'm giving this 120%!
