Yeah I know right... Not very accountable and not much follow through on this blog.
What really matters is that I have been accountable and I followed through to my goal of finishing the 24 day advocare challenge.
I started the challenge at 325lbs. (Some bloat from my destructive birthday party)
I set everything up to end on the same day as my Pre-Op appointment with my surgeon.
Upon arrival at Kaiser at 11am I had already consumed a Spark (Caffeine) with 24oz of water and a bit more water to wash out my mouth.
My bodyweight was 304lbs.
My Blood Pressure was 116/68
My Heart Rate was 64bpm.
Am I happy that I went from 325 to 304? heck yes.
The diet was very easy to maintain. Every day I filled out each of my check lists and made sure that I got everything in. There were days that I missed a few of my supplements, but that didnt stop my momentum.
I have taken the last two weeks to relax a bit. Not following any specific diet but definitely not going Full-Blown overboard. I had a burger one night.. some thai food another night here and there.. spent most of my days still eating the way I did on the challenge, just without the supplements.
I'm starting another challenge Monday along with a few membership of the gym. Should be fun! I am looking forward to seeing these guys get big results!
The initial 10 days will end with my surgery date.
After surgery I will be following through with the arranged 14 days of nutriton with some quality intake adjustments.
I will basically be doing nothing but recovering and therapy so my focus will be on a Nutrient-rich, Calorie-poor diet.
We will see how things go.
