90 Days to a Better Me!
On November 18th I started a 90-day challenge to be a healthier, more fit and better me! I decided to change my eating habits and eat healthier, less processed foods. I became more conscious of what I was putting in my body. I made a 90-day challenge to eat fresh foods with no preservatives. I gave up fast food and all my favorites- like Twix, Charleston Chews and so much more! I hated water and sweets we’re my downfall, but I have to say it was well worth it ! I lost a total of 11 pounds in 90 days and feel absolutely amazing! It truly isn’t about the weight. I can’t stress to you enough how much better I feel today. My body & stomach feel better than I ever have before! I don’t wake up from stomach pains, have stomach pains after eating (almost on a daily basis) and have issues digesting my food anymore. I honestly wasn’t even trying to loose weight and did. I gave up fast food completely (It was hard in the beginning, but honestly don’t miss it now) and I can’t tell you how much better my body feels!
Day 30 (lost 5 pounds & felt great!)
Day 60 (lost another 4 pounds and haven’t had stomach pains from eating in over a month!)
Day 90 (lost an additional 2 pounds)
Some of the things I did:
Breakfast! I NEVER ate breakfast! It kind of made me sick in the morning if I ate and I know how important it is to eat breakfast. So, I decided to make a change! I started eating shakes for breakfast. Body by Vi shakes! They taste like cake mix, so honestly you truly cannot go wrong! It’s only 90 calories with water. It cost $1.50/meal with mix only!
If I didn’t have a shake for breakfast, I would grab a nutrition bar or piece of fruit, like a cutie!
I had tremendous support from Elizabeth Curtner. She is a nutritionist, coach, and nutrition blogger passionate about helping others through diet and well-being. She is absolutely amazing and I couldn’t recommend her more!
I did a 5 day challenge with her my first week to kick off my life change. She motivated me every day, gave me meal ideas and substitutions & helped me stay on the right path!
Who doesn’t love healthy and fabulous food! I ate some amazing, healthy and delicious foods the last 90 days. I learned about some amazing healthy choices that are out there! I made a delicious salad every so often and chopped up all the ingredients finely to taste even better!
I tried to make everything fresh and homemade during the entire 90 days and I continue to do so. Below is a Spinach Salad with 3 fresh organic diced up strawberries and I made my own homemade dressing. I used olive oil, Romano cheese & cut a lemon in half. I squeezed the lemon into the olive oil and Romano mixture and then tossed it on the salad. Seriously to die for delicious!
Are you a vegetarian? You must try Hilary’s eat well! Best Veggie burger ever! I have had so many different ones over the years. Some tasted so awful to me, but honestly Hilary’s Eat Well was my absolute favorite one that I have ever eaten. You can change them up as well. I love mini burgers! I cut one in 4 and did little mini burgers with fresh avocado! Yum!
Having members of my family pass away from cancer really inspired me to look at what I was eating and chemicals I was putting into my body. Today, I eat all natural if possible. I prefer the natural route and my stomach and body thanks me. Honestly, my best advice is to eat all natural foods because it made such a difference on my body in 90 days and I honestly don’t even want fast food or preservatives anymore.
