It’s Day 2 of ‘Ali’s 12 Week Transformation Challenge’
It’s challenge day 2 and so far I’ve been doing really well. I did my stretching exercise today. An inclusive hour of breathing, stretching and relaxation through Yoga. I have a set routine that I follow every second day. A .pdf will go up on the extra links page of the blog shortly. I drank 3L of water, took all my supplements, and made a healthy snack and a healthy meal.
What did I eat?
Well for breakfast it was all the morning supplements and a (Dutch chocolate) Herbalife shake, made with water. I added my MANA supplement and a shot of coffee. It was delish
My Morning snack was a quick and easy boiled egg on a bed of baby spinach with a yummy vinaigrette dressing, and a Herbalife Green Tea. Although alternatively you can have normal green tea with lemon, it offers similar benefits.
Lunch was another Herbalife Shake, made with water, but this time I added fresh mint leaves, giving me a delicious choc-mint shake, mmm yummy.
I had another Herbalife Green Tea between lunch and dinner, and then for dinner I had Roast Chicken Salad with Creamy Mayo dressing. The roast chicken was a store bought quick boneless roast, so no recipe available, just a picture.
Last but not least a Herbalife green tea after dinner. Oh yeah and 3L of water throughout the day. I was aiming for 4, but I didn’t quite get there.
Where am I struggling?
Well so far it’s just my water intake, although I do struggle with creativity in regards to my meals. I struggle to think of the next snack option, or the next dinner option. All my workouts tend to have to be done once the little one is in bed, hence why they are so short. That’s not that big an issue, but it might become an issue for working mothers or people with older children.
How do I feel so far?
Well for me, every day down is another accomplishment, and then there’s the part where I write about it, every day I can get that done is another accomplishment.
Little wins are the best way, I’ve completed my workout for the day. Win. I’ve eaten another healthy meal for the day. Win. I’ve drank my 3L minimum water for the day. Win. I’ve had more than one green tea for the day. Win. I’ve taken all my supplements for the day. Win.
When you look at the challenge as a bunch of tiny achievements, it’s much easier to keep your mind on the task. Apart from that little sense of accomplishment you get from making your life healthier, you get to eventually reap the reward of shrinking cm’s, stronger muscles, better posture, and confidence
If you’re doing this with me, keep at it. I believe in you
