Well, week one is complete! I am down a total of 5 pounds!! Whoop whoop!
I am so proud of myself for sticking to my plan, outside of a few mishaps. When I met with my coach Jess, she told me the first 2 weeks would be a time where I would be reprogramming my body so I would be eating 6 small meals throughout the day. I start my morning off with a Shake, then 2 hours later another Shake, then for Lunch I get another Shake, Vegetable and Fat, for snack I get a fiber bar, Dinner I get a Protein, Fat and Vegetable and then end the night with another Shake.
That's a lot for a day, right? Here I am used to eating maybe 2 meals a day with no snack.
I tried a variety of flavors for the shake but my favorite so far is the Mocha Latte, Chocolate Brownie and Mint Chocolate Chip.
The fiber bars I tried are: Chocolate Almond and Cinnamon - both are yummy!
There was a couple of nights I was so tired I went to bed without having my last shake, and it was a long and stressful week with everything happening in the world, I asked Jess if I could have a glass of wine. She told me it wasn't recommended but if I could wait until Saturday, I could have at least one. I was so happy! I love that this program allows you to still LIVE.
The most important thing I want to stress is being open and honest with your coach in order for you to have the best success. Jess did not make me feel bad about wanting something and that motivated me to stick with what her advice was.
I will also say I told her I was craving eating carbs but she assured me I could have those later on in the plan. Knowing that, was alright with me. I also asked Jess was 5 lbs a good weigh in? She told me not to focus on the weight loss but non-scale victories which is amazing. I did tell her I felt like I had more energy, my mood was improving and my sleep was getting better.
So often we have to remind ourselves the scale is not the end all measure of success. Remember the other victories!
