Day 11 - Have something you are craving

I thought this would be a funny picture if you looked at the title of the blog....I really don't want you to eat all this kind of junk. I like this picture better:

You made it! Most of you have completed the 10 day cleanse, have "in moderation" something you have been craving. Do not have it all day. Keep the entire day "CLEANSE STYLE" with the exception of your one meal of your choosing. We will go over the next part of the program tomorrow night at the meeting. I will go over everything at the meeting tomorrow at 7pm so make sure you come.

I know posting has been a little lower the last few days, but let's make sure we attend the meeting tomorrow so we don't fall off the wagon, remember this is a "24" day challenge....not a "10" day program.

*Be sure to post your meals with total calories and your total calories for the day

*Start the MNS vitamins today as directed

*Spark - in the morning in place of coffee and/or before exercise (and/or mid afternoon for energy)

*Catalyst - 3 capsules mid morning and mid afternoon (also before working out)

*Meal Replacement Shake - drink in place of a meal (try and eat 4-5 meals per day), you may also drink in place of breakfast.

    I'll have to say.... I thought this whole cheating thing was such a fantastic idea until about 20 minutes after I ate (for the rest of the evening) and I could hear my body snickering at me "Oh, you thought you wanted to eat real food didn't you?? See how it feels now!". So, yeah, that won't be happening again! So not worth it!

    P.s. I am trying to be more conscientious about the whole protein thing... It doesn't look like it here, but today (Tuesday) is already going much better!)

  18. Charlie -
    Using the "light activity" (I picked this because i'm not able to row because of my accident) and goal to loose 1.5lbs/week Livestrong puts my goal at 1,384 calories. If I use weight x10 my goal should be 1,600 calories. Which one do you want me to aim for?

    I need to save the cheating for this weekend. I am going to be out of town and it will be hard to be as strict.

  20. Sorry I forgot my totals!

    Total: 1732
    Goal: 1450.... yikes

  21. Lamanda - I hope you enjoyed your burger, see you at the meeting tonight!

  22. Alex - morning snack had no protein, it was all fruit. Try to have some protein at every meal.

  23. Michelle - I guess you decided not to cheat, good for you! BUT, you had no protein all day until dinner, this is no bueno, you need to eat protein at every meal.

  24. Mia - that migrane probably came from the dr pepper and mexican food. Isn't that # of calories scary! I'm glad you are learning.

  25. Lauren - great job, it looks like you chose not to cheat also.

  26. Maria - I will take that, but instead of canned peaches eat the real thing. Great stats!

  27. Kandis - you rock, I am so proud of you and how far you have come on this challenge. Keep it up!

  28. Halley - drop one yolk and 1/2 of that avocado to bring your calories for bfast where they need to be. You did great for day 1, since you are just now starting the cleanse you have a leg up on the info. So go ahead and post "calories for the day" and "goal calories" with your post. Goal calories is "bodyweight x 10".

  29. Halley - haha! I just saw your next post, you rock!

  30. Callie - reading your post made me want to go to chuy's....haha, I love that place! I hope you enjoyed it!

  31. Elizabeth - haha, I am proud of you for keeping your scarfing to a minimum :-) You can totally eat healthy at a mexican restaurant, you just have to have tons of will power to resist the chips! Chicken fajitas (no butter/no oil) with pico, guac and salsa is the way to order at a mexican restaurant.

  32. Christina - first, I love your post and how your body talked to you :-) Second, awesome recognition of your need for protein....keep trying!

  33. Halley - bodyweight x 10 is the way to go for you.

  34. Will - have 10 nuts with each shake and you'll get your calories to 2,000. That light ceasar is not neccessary.
