I've FINALLY made it! It's the final day and I couldn't be more excited.
I have to say, it definitely got easier as the days went by. Day 3 was the hardest by far. The first few days were filled with motivation and the fact that it was something new. During the last 2, I found that I was getting tired of the routine, but the cravings had subsided some and I didn't want to dive into a large bowl of pasta as much as I before. It was getting through Day 3 that was the toughest challenge, and the hardest to stick through.
Coming out on the other end of this, I have to say, I'm definitely glad I did it. It was one of the hardest things I've done, but I came out feeling healthier (and a few pounds down!) As tempting as it is to now reach for the snacks and desserts I was craving so much over the past 5 days, I know it's important to continue to make smart choices in the future if I want to stay feeling as good and to keep the weight off.
This isn't right for everyone. I know doing something like this may seem extreme for a lot of people. But I know myself. Once I start falling into those poor eating habits, it's really hard for me to break them. It takes a total reset to get my willpower and desire to be healthy back. For me, this was exactly what I needed to stop spiraling down the rabbit hole.
So, as the end of the day I'm happy, feeling healthy and feeling like I'm headed in a more positive direction. Plus I'm a little bit skinnier, so I must say - Mission Accomplished!
