Hey guys, I'm here for the update on my 24 day challenge.
So I've completed the cleanse (10 days) and I must say I feel great. I don't feel sluggish as I usually do and I have more energy throughout the day. My schedule isn't like normal peoples' because I work graveyard. So when it comes to the weekends, I usually just sleep for 5 hours and wake up so I can enjoy the day. It kinda throws off the challenge a little because sometimes 2 days will combine into 1 day(if that makes any sense). I still get cravings for certain foods but that is a part of the process. I feel my stomach shrinking and I get full fast. My mindset has been changing. When I look at foods now, I think more on how it can benefit me or how it can't benefit me.
To do this challenge or any diet change....you really have to be in control of your mind because for the most part..its all in your head. I've overcame cravings due to water and just occupying myself so I don't think about it anymore. And my determination to finish this challenge strong also helps.
Some of my friends have asked me "Do you feel skinny?" To be honest, I have no idea what that question means. All I can say is I feel better. I have more energy. "Do you feel lighter?"....Ummm...I'm a pretty heavy person. But to answer that question...The more energy i have now makes it seem I am lighter because I'm moving around in a quicker pace than usual.
14 more days to go. Shout out to all my friends that are on a diet before Christmas. We can do it. I pray each and every one of us have a stronger mind as the days pass and that we continue to encourage one another. Remember, don't underestimate the power of your own determination. You can do it if you really want it. But ask yourselves....How bad do you want?
