So, one month down on Isagenix and I'm heading into month 2.
I "sort of" followed my routine this past week, but had a few minor slips and the funny thing is... I watched the scale drop anyway. I think my body was thanking me for just jolting out of the routine I had been following for the past 4 weeks.
I have to admit, when my husband buys me those chocolate covered strawberries, cause he knows they are my favorites, I have absolutely no resistance. And, the only day of the year he ever cooks for me is Mother's Day. I get eggs benedict every year for breakfast. And there is no way I am going to pass that up!
We also had a lot of entertaining this weekend, including parties out of the house, and although I didn't go crazy or anything, I did eat off the usual routine.
I find that it's not that hard to resist overeating at the moment. I get full more quickly and I am truly trying to recognize when enough is enough. I am also making much better choices. Most of those dessert trays at large catered events are not even all that good. I'd rather wait for something homemade that I know I will enjoy. At least, that what I kept telling myself! It worked!
So, on to another month of Isagenix. This one will be harder than the first cause every single weekend we have an event...and some big ones... communions, confirmations, graduations, weddings and an entire weekend of Memorial Day BBQs. I feel that this month is going to be my first "true test" of willpower and resistance because I can not control my environment. The winter was much easier to keep a strict diet.
I'm also worried about maintaining my workout schedule since I switched from mornings to afternoon with the weather change. I fear I am going to have to go back to 5am wake-up calls in order to guarantee getting in my workout. Otherwise, I am running too much of a risk of not working out after work due to other commitments. I really dread this. I already missed this morning just cause I was tired. I hate the morning. Even though I know it's good for me and I always feel great afterwards...I just hate getting up so darn early. I keep telling myself...just 2 days a week, you can do it! Not. Have to regain my focus there!
May 12th will mark week one, month 2 Isagenix. Which means, I will be done with Isagenix by June 10th. My goal is another 10lbs this month, which should drop me into the 180s. I am am gonna push hard for it!
Wish me luck!
