Today is day 4 on our 24 day challenge…No fiber drink this morning. I’m posting photos today and will do again on Day 8. I woke up this morning with a head cold and don’t feel well so I did not go to the gym. I’m hoping I will feel better tonight so I can do a half hour of exercise. My husband and I both noticed our clothes fit better today and felt really good about that. I am very happy so far with this program. I feel better ( aside from this cold!), feel stronger, and more alert. I also am really happy with the support we receive… I can already tell I am going to miss this when it’s over. I’m really glad to be doing this!! End of day 4: Cold set in pretty hard as day went on. I decided not to work out tonight and not to go back to TRX in the am. Not because I don’t want too or am not determined too.. I just feel pretty bad and throat closing up. Tonight after work I went to an essential oils party on the way home for a very short while that my friend was having in her studio. I passed on the snacks and wine… and was thinking about how much food I would have eaten the last four days if I had not started this diet. There is so much socialization with food and drinks. Came home and had a little chicken and some salad. It’s unfortunate I won’t be able to work out tonight but I am going to try and get a good nights sleep and knock this cold out fast! Aside from the cold, I feel great and told my husband tonight I love having something in my life that actually goes as planned… on schedule.. and is working. It’s pretty much the only thing is my life like that… LOL Kind of don’t want the 24 days to end. Looking forward to day 5 tomorrow. Love doing this with my husband too… makes it fun.. great to hear about the day away from each other and how we were able to steer away from food danger! :) I also have a friend on face book that I met on the 24 day challenge facebook. Although we don’t know each other… I feel like we are also going through this together and look forward to hearing about how she is doing everyday. ( We started the same day). She has already lost five pounds which gives me even more motivation to knock this 24 day challenge out of the ball park. I read somewhere not to weigh myself until day 10. I am not sure if that is even true.. but I think I will weigh myself on day 8. Turning in tonight: First weekend on the 24 day challenge ahead!

Day Two ended with another dinner party with a lot of wonderful drinks and food. It was also day two of our diet. We ordered water with lemon at the open bar, passed on all the delicious snacks, didn’t touch the wine or bread baskets and sent our dinners back for vegetarian plates passing on the delicious dessert. We made it home safe and grumpy. Lol
We are not hungry at all.. but as I expected the social settings need some getting use too. Every event includes so much food and drinks.. I just need to get comfortable not indulging with everyone and feeling comfortable saying no thank-you. It’s not the actual food or the wine…. It’s just not following the same as everyone in these type of social settings. Overall, I am very happy and am looking forward to Day 3.

Day Two… 10:30a.m. Well, after walking the dogs I went back to the gym for my second day . Anyone that’s been in this position knows I woke up sore from TRX class yesterday. Half hour on the treadmill and some weights were not easy for me today. I ‘m the lady in the gym that looks like a duck out of water but this too will change! I got back on the scale and it didn’t move yet. I know…. I know….

Day One.. We are pretty excited to be starting this challenge. I went to my first TRX class this morning. It was humbling to realize how out of shape I am. But I am determined to change that and told the trainer I would be back ! :) My husband and I have an event to attend this evening so we ate two healthy dinners at home so we would not be hungry this evening and be tempted to snack. I could not imagine doing this alone… The fun and determination will be in doing this together. I took before photos of my husband last night. I didn’t want him to take my pictures though… Too self conscience…. But excited to change. Update: We went to our first party without enjoying the unlimited amounts of our favorite foods, snacks, and drinks with friends. It felt a little strange, not participating in all the indulging around us.. but we did just fine and felt stronger for it. Day One: Success!!
