I just realized that the cleanse is almost over! Today was day 9 of the AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge* an tomorrow will be the last day of doing it and I’m pretty dang excited! I can’t wait to see my final results. I think doing this Advocare Herbal cleanse the second time has been a lot easier. Maybe it’s because I’m more committed? I’m not sure but I’m really happy with how this challenge is going so far. I can’t wait to get into the max phase and see what happens!
AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge Day 9 Food
Wakeup: Spark*! Probiotic pills.
Breakfast: Herbal cleanse fiber drink*! It’s a lot easier to drink this fiber drink now that I’m used to it, but I’m still excited that it’s almost over.
For breakfast I made scrambled eggs! No pepper because last time I used pepper at home it was a disaster!
Lunch: Grilled salad with chicken. I mean, salad grilled chicken. My tired brain totally typed it that way and I found it so funny I had to leave it. Lunch wasn’t anything fancy but it got the job done. I was so excited about eating outside that I forgot to snap a photo. Oops.
Snacks: A few peanuts. I didn’t count or weigh them but it wasn’t a large amount.
Dinner: For dinner I had salmon! I cooked a larger piece and ate half (the half you see in the photo) along with some steamed broccoli. Everything was covered in a delicious and generous helping of Mrs. Dash extra spicy seasoning, my new favorite thing in the world. In the world. It’s so good. And salt free.
AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge Day 9 Fitness
Nothing fancy today. Just more walking and some leg lifts.
If I can also count chores for fitness, I totally hand-washed a ton of dishes and swept my whole house. It burned calories even if it’s not really a fitness activity!
AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge Day 9 Thoughts
I just realized that today I didn’t have any cravings. There is a ton of candy and free snacks at my office but none of it was calling my name today. I didn’t even think about it. It simply wasn’t interesting to me. I didn’t have any cravings all day long which is surprising and kind of awesome since I’m normally always craving something or other.
Is this what people who don’t struggle with food feel like all the time? You’ve probably got so much more free headspace not dedicated to thinking about food and your cravings and your next meal. I never even realized.
There are a lot of things that I’ve been realizing lately about myself. I think I’ve sold myself short way too many times in the past. Thinking I couldn’t do something like this. Thinking I wasn’t capable of things. It’s such a small accomplishment but doing so well and feeling so well right now is making me think I’m capable of a lot more than I’ve let myself achieve.
Now I’m off to sleep and terribly excited about it!
