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
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.
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.
