It is now the final evening of the 10 Day Cleanse portion of the Advocare 24 Day Challenge.
My weight plateaued for a couple of days but dropped another pound this morning. I am now sitting right in my target weight zone. Along with the weight loss, I have experienced some increase in energy throughout the day and seem to be in a healthier wake/sleep daily cycle, too.
Granted, I have been craving some foods that would not work on the Cleanse, such as a nice bacon cheeseburger or some chocolate chip cookies (like those that were in my church small group Bible study). But (by the grace of God) I have successfully utilized self-control and did not cheat at all in the 10 Day Cleanse.
Though relating to food I have missed a bit during the Cleanse, I am looking forward to the one meal cheat allowance during the 14 Day Max Phase. I already have my first one planned for Columbus’ Restaurant Week: salad and pizza from Pizza Cucinova.
I will let you know my final Cleanse numbers tomorrow.
