Day nine is complete!* Each day adds another layer of new habits, and it’s such a great feeling.

Here are today’s stats.

Breakfast: Hard-boiled egg and an orange

Lunch: Leftover pork chop and green beans from last night

Supper: Roasted chicken breast; Veggies with hummus

Snacks: Banana; Unsalted peanuts with raisins; Apple

Tea of Choice: Teavana green tea – jade citrus mint

Exercise: Elliptical

Energy Level: Really good! I only got 6 hours of sleep last night, and I was amazed how much energy I had in spite of that. I still hit an afternoon lull but nothing like it would have been before the challenge.

Other Observations:

This cleanse phase of the challenge has reminded me just how filling fiber is. After taking the fiber supplement in the morning, I haven’t really been hungry for breakfast until an hour or so later. It’s like the fiber expands in my stomach and acts like a scrub brush, scouring away all the junk in there. A lovely analogy, isn’t it? 🙂 I plan to make fiber-rich foods a regular staple in my diet after the challenge is over.

That’s it for Day 9! Short and sweet today. See you back here tomorrow…
