The Challenge is Done

Hey all!

Yesterday was my last day of the challenge! I can’t believe that it is already done! First though I want to talk about Thursday.

Thursday I cheated…I went to a girls night and we had fajitas for dinner. The problem was I decided to have a margarita like the other girls with dinner. I probably shouldn’t have but you live and you learn! I definitely enjoyed it!

For Fajita night I made homemade salsa and guacamole! They were both very good! The Salsa was a bit spicy so next time I wont be using a whole jalaepeno! You can find the recipes in the links above!

My last day was great! I had my meal replacement shake. Forgot to eat my morning snack! For lunch I had grilled chicken and roasted zucchini!

Lunch was probably the best part of the day! As I was making lunch for me and Jacob I was talking to him while he was switching out the laundry and he asked me if I was excited to be done with the challenge. I then told him no. I went on to explain that I don’t think I am done. I am not going back to my ways before the challenge! That I want to keep eating how I have been the last 23 days! As I was rambling Jacob snuck up behind me and kissed me on the cheek and put a Fitbit Charge HR on the counter in front of me! He went on to tell me how proud he was of me and of course I started crying. Man I have a sweet husband!

Pretty good for the day when I started the day at 5:30!

After lunch I had an apple and my morning grapes!

After work I went to the gym for a class called CSI. It was kind of like a circuit workout. And man was it tough! It also didn’t help that all of the people in the class were pretty fit and here I am over here huffing and puffing but I made it through the whole thing!

For dinner we make Chicken Tacos! They are really one of my favorites!

For my night snack I had a bowl of berries!

And with that the challenge was/is over!

Results

Drumroll please! Over the last 24 days I have had some great results!

I started this journey at 203.8 lbs. (And that was down from the 209 I got to at my highest probably a few months ago!)

I am down to 195.6! That’s a total of 8.2 lbs! Woah! I also measured inches when I started! They had me measure both arms, both thighs, both calves, chest, waists, and hips. At the start my totals of all those inches was 235.75. As of today I am at 224.5 inches! That is a 11.25 inch difference! Woo Hoo!!! I still have a way to go but I am happy with the pace I am loosing at!

Here are the picture results!

Now What?

Well first of all I need to figure out which Advocare products I want to keep using. I know Spark is a for sure but need to do some research on what else!

I also really want a coke. Not like a whole coke…I just want a taste!

And then I am going to continue to make healthy choices like eating more veggies and drinking lots of water! I feel that after the 24 day challenge I know better how to balance my diet! I am thinking about taking my new food skills and doing a cycle of the 21 day fix workouts! I got pretty good results the first time around and the nutrition piece could have been alot better!

I am also going to continue to blog but about other things too! I am hoping to start sharing recipes for things and craft projects!
