Day 20

Only 4 days left on my 24 day challenge. My morning moods are incredible. I find myself singing and dancing on the way to work. Typically I'd be forcing down coffee trying to stay awake. My only issue is forgetting to eat, which is NOT recommended. Perhaps the appetite suppressant just needed a little time to even out in the body.
Remember, to keep with any challenge you must stay organized. A couple of tips that I use:

  • Keep a timer on your phone or watch to remind you when to eat a snack or have a meal. 
  • Take advantage of the times you are not too what you normally wouldn't i.e. fruits and veggies.
  • Write everything down. Research shows people who keep food journals maintain a health weight. Yes, even dietitians keep food journals! 
  • And of course set goals each week! 
    • My goals throughout the challenge-the more specific the better!
      1. Exercise 5 times per week.
      2. Reduce fat in my diet: specifically: cut back on ranch dressing....
      3. Increase fluid: 64 oz EVERYDAY!
      4. Snack on more fruit and less packaged foods i.e. protein bars
      5. Use the hunger scale
