Yesterday I finished up Day 14 of my Advocare Journey. I am feeling better, better about me, better about the journey, and feeling better. I am down 4 pounds since I started. But my clothes are fitting better and that means more than the scale showing four pounds down.
Cravings suck. I have come to realization that when you eat unhealthy and you eat certain things it becomes an addiction. My addiction must be sweets. I LOVE all things sweet, cookies, candy, chocolate, sprinkles (ya, I know), Redi Whip, ALL things sweet and yummy. These are my weakness, especially during ‘that time of the month’ which is this week so last week I craved anything and everything sweet and yummy. BUT- overall I think I did awesome at not giving in. I am done with the cleanse phase and I don’t want to eat those things and ruin what I worked for during that phase. Like all addictions you can overcome them. It just takes time and dedication to get through it. I don’t feel like I am completely out of the woods on the cravings for these things but it is getting easier. My mom gave me a bunch of recipes for clean eating YUMMY treats that are fat free or very low fat. I think this will be a huge thing to help me through food cravings and I will be sharing some of these recipes, so be on the look out for them 🙂
Next week will be hardest for me to keep on track. But what is great is that I have some great ladies that are also eating clean and working out so I won’t be alone and I will have them to look to for support and to keep me on track.
I can do this. YOU can do this. 🙂
