I’m actually more than halfway through my month long eating plan with Nutritious & Delicious and I’m so excited about the results already! After the two week mark, I was already down seven pounds- woot! woot!
A lot of friends are asking me how it’s going, so I thought I would share a brief update.
The first week I was on the plan, I was exhausted! At first I thought it was because I wasn’t getting enough calories but I decided to wait until my two week check in to talk to Bethany about it.
What do you think happened? By week two I felt fine! The exhaustion was gone and I felt like myself again. Bethany said that first week is when your body does a detox and you can feel flu-like symptoms.
I LOVE THE ACCOUNTABILITY
Maybe it’s from all those years of recording workouts for my coaches, but having someone I’m accountable to has definitely been a great motivator in keeping me on track. Knowing that Bethany is seeing what I eat on the app motivates me to stick to the plan.
I had one bad day where I drowned my stress in Wendy’s chicken strips, fries, and a frosty. The next day I received a kind word from Bethany on tips to keep eating out healthier and reassuring me that she was available whenever I needed to talk to her.
I’M SURPRISED I’M NOT CRAVING SUGAR
I’m surprised I’m not having a ton of killer sugar cravings, I have such a sweet tooth! But I credit this to the evening snack of chocolate protein powder with chocolate almond milk. I get my chocolate fix but it’s low sugar and nutritious.
FOODS ARE EASY TO MAKE
I once returned a meal plan because the recipes were waaaay too complicated! I am not a cook and I hate being in the kitchen. The recipes from Nutritious & Delicious have been very simple which I love!
I PLAN TO CONTINUE AFTER THE MONTH IS OVER
I feel so good, both physically and mentally from this that I plan to continue eating according to a meal plan after my month is over. I have a lot of great ideas from the plan and I thrive under this kind of organization.
However, I do plan to give myself a cheat day. I think this will help me through the week not to get fixated on things like sushi and chocolate bars if I know I can treat myself on a specific day.
Overall, this has been a great experience and I still have a week and a bit to go!
