Healthy Life - Day 8 Check In

Technically today is Day 9 of my 24 Day Challenge,
but since it isn't complete yet it didn't make sense to call this post the Day 9 check in.
Now that I got that off my chest I feel better...don't you?! ;)

I am not posting my weight or actual measurements on here because...well because I just don't want the world to know those.
However, I will be posting "totals"...like total lbs. lost, total inches lost, etc.
Also, I will be letting you in on how much or how little I have cheated along the way, and how often I am working out.

I started the first few days off great!
I was only eating foods (fruits, veggies, lean meats) that are on the list of good foods. 
Then a few days in I saw the Thin Mints box :( While I can't say that I didn't give in to a craving...I did only have 4 cookies. 
And you better believe I ate those suckers slower than slow to make sure I filled that craving for awhile!

Then it was back to munching on veggies or delicious watermelon for snacks :)
Dinners were tough, but I did manage to have some small portions of lean meat and a little bit of whole grains. 
I tried to load up on the veggies so I was always too full to want more of the carbs. 

I have also steered clear of all coffee, tea, pop, dairy, and alcohol!
All I have drank for the last 8 days is water or water with Spark mixed in :)
Honestly, I don't need those other beverages!
Of course, I love the taste of them or the warmth that coffee/tea/hot cocoa brings to me. 
I just don't need them to get through the day!
I have had plenty of energy and I actually feel a lot better not eating or drinking all those calories.
It is funny, after a few days/weeks of putting good things into your body you start realizing that you don't want to eat or drink the "bad" foods that much. I mean, yes I would love a nice cocktail after a stressful day! But I don't need it, and that is key!

On top of eating better I have been going to booty barre classes again :) I really wish I had been able to go this whole winter! 
I wouldn't be terrified of going on a beach vacation as much.
I went to class Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday morning. 
The other days were tough trying to fit in some sort of activity since Mic had to work.
I posted this photo to instagram as my before and after class photo :)

Now onto the numbers.
Let's be honest, I am sure that is what you are really waiting to hear about.

Pounds Lost 3.8
Inches Lost Overall 4.25

Remember it has only been 8 days!

I can't wait to see what my results will be next week and then after the full 24 days!
