Advocare Challenge: Days 2 & 3

leave a comment »

It’s day three of my Advocare 24-day Challenge and I am feeling great!

Waking up the second morning, I’d already lost 3.5lbs. While those results didn’t repeat from day two to day three, I felt great in the morning (minus some muscle soreness from exercising). I even remarked to Stacey that I felt like a “slimmer human being.” It wasn’t just psychosomatic either, getting ready for church in the morning revealed a baggier shirt and some looser fitting pants.

There have been very few times that I’ve felt legitimately hungry and far more times that I’ve felt excited to eat a meal!

I’m also feeling more-and-more like my body is getting a rhythm back. I’ve been more energetic in the morning (even before the “Spark” drink) and haven’t had mid-morning or mid-afternoon crashes. Without any caffeine in the afternoon or evening, I’m winding down earlier at night. Overall, I feel more productive and get a lot done in-between trips to refill my glass of water!

Here’s what I’ve eaten the past two days:

Day 2 Breakfast: Dinner from the night before (chicken tortilla stew) w/scrambled eggs and avocado.

Day 2 Lunch: Porkchops w/Quinoa Pilaf and Edamame

Day 2 Dinner: Skirt Steak-Spinach Salad (made wraps for Stacey and Joshua)

Day 3 Breakfast: Dinner from the night before w/scrambled eggs in a high-fiber/low-carb wrap

Day 3 Lunch: Leftovers from Day 2 Lunch

Day 3 Dinner: Curry-rubbed Chicken Breast w/yellow squash and brown rice.

Back to the daily grind on Monday when we’ll hopefully get to sign some mortgage papers so we can continue moving on our new house!
