It is amazing to me that I've been on this journey for just seven weeks, when these new habits of health have already become such a normal and integral part of my life.
I feel AMAZING. I love the changes in my sleep, my energy, my hunger (or lack thereof), my eating habits, what I eat, and the fact that I have made it through November - a month of celebrations - while remaining on plan the entire time, without even stressing about it.
I really like starting my day with a Fueling, most days it is a shake blended with water, ice, and a few ounces of cold brew coffee, but sometimes it is oatmeal or even a brownie, because why not?!
I still alter when I eat my Lean and Green. My normal schedule to eat is 8 am, 10:30 am, 1 pm, 3:30 pm, 6 pm, and 8:30 pm. I don't usually eat it first or last, but I have eaten it at any of the other times throughout the day, depending on how things are going with my schedule.
A big milestone happened this week too - I passed the 30 pound mark for weight loss! If you had asked me when I started this program - just 7 weeks ago - how long it would take me to lose 30 pounds, I would have said about 4 months. If you had asked me seven weeks ago what my goals were through the end of November, I would have said to learn healthier eating habits, and lose some bad eating habits. My long term goals were for my clothes to fit better. I am so proud of myself and so excited for this program, and the ability to share it and coach others along their journey to health.
