Day 8: Past the weekend!

inspiration from Lindsey
Hands down, the hardest part of the 10-Day Challenge was getting through the weekend.  Not to mention, Duke was in town visiting and we wanted to go out!

So what did I do?  Well, when we went out to eat, while I wasn't completely within my nutrition guide, I really tried to focus on lean protein.  I also drank water, so I didn't waste calories/sugar/carbs on that.  It's hard for me to eat out healthily, not because of lack of options, but because I love bread and fried potatoes in various forms!

That said, I do think I did well over the weekend.  I just had to focus and remind myself of what I'm trying to achieve.  I've realized that SO much of the challenge is willpower, and nothing more.  It's about making a CONSCIOUS DECISION to work out or eat well.  I've been reminded often during this of the things I read in The Power of Habit.

Fortunately, I had e-mails from Lindsey to continue to push me through!   I'm happy with myself for taking on this challenge, and I feel the boost it has given me.  I'm definitely down a few pounds, and one of Lindsey's challengers is down 7 lbs. thus far!  It has already affected the way I grocery shop and the foods I choose when I am out and at home.

The 10-Day Challenge isn't the only service Lindsey provides her clients.  She also has exclusive deals on workout/Shakeology challenge packs.  Check them out below!

Disclaimer:  I received a 10-day supply of Shakeology and coaching/nutrition guidance in exchange for blogging about my experience.  My opinions are my own.
