24 Day Challenge-Checking In

So here I am, day 12 of the 24 day challenge, halfway there. The best part is being done with the cleanse and the nasty fiber drink. I would seriously chug this drink in the morning then chug 1-2 glasses of water after. I will admit that I wasn't perfect on the cleanse. The way I see it, life happens and circumstances are out of your control sometimes. Even on the days I didn't do the best I still only strayed maybe 15-20%. Plus, I felt like crap after eating crap which just proved a point that I don't need that stuff. I will say the hardest part was making sure I was eating enough. I was so full at times that I know I wasn't getting enough calories. Finally though, I think I have it figured out.

Some random things I have learned:

-I tried Almond Milk for the first time. It's okay. I still prefer a glass of dairy milk but I do have to watch how much I drink because it can give Reagan gas and that child does not need any help in that area =)

- My sleep has been so much more refreshing. I've even been going to bed later and still waking up at the same time and I'm not sleepy.

-PB2 is amazing, seriously

-I have a peanut butter addiction

-Washing your fruit is an absolute must! No more waxy grapes and strawberries going bad after a few days.

-Apples and peanut butter are amazing together

-Did I mention I love peanut butter?

-Quinoa is good, I made a burrito bowl to rival Chipotle with it and it was darn good.

I made a promise to avoid the scale and measurements until the challenge was over. I will say that some pants fit better as well as some shirts. Most importantly though, I feel better


  1. Sounds like you are on the right track! So happy you are feeling better daily. I have been meaning to try quinoa.

  2. Sounds like you're getting the hang of things. I love peanut butter too! High five for clothes fitting better! What a great feeling. Keep up the great work!

  3. Yay! Glad you're feeling better and have more energy. That's once of my favorite parts!! Keep it up!

  4. Awesome! Do you use PB2 powder? I have some and don't know what to do with it...

  5. MmmMmmm! I love PB with apples, too! Felicia is a tooter, too, but I think it is because we have beans and leafy greens pretty prominent in our diet. It makes me laugh every morning because she stretches and toots when she wakes up for the day! Hooray for more restful sleep and clothes fitting better :)
