24 Day Challenge - Day 1

Hey ya'll, about to head to bed on Day 1 of the challenge.  Here is an update for you!

Day 1 Challenge Update: So....day 1 was actually not bad.  I woke up excited to start the challenge and even semi-excited to go back to work after five days off.  I started the day with the Fiber Drink, which was the only thing I was super worried about.  I've heard the taste was the worst part... and honestly I was a little worried about the extra fiber (ummm... if ya know what I mean.  If not, please google).

Turns out I was worried for nothing.  The Fiber Drink was really not that bad.  I read online while doing research that adding some Spark would help the flavor.  I did that (only about half a scoop though, the one that comes with the canister) plus randomly added in about five pieces of frozen fruit and blended it all together for a smoothie like drink.  It wasn't GREAT by any means but it certainly wasn't horrible either.  I drank it while I was getting ready and tried not to think about it that much, and I really think that helped a lot too.  Tomorrow I might try it without the fruit, I think it'll be easier if I just chug it in liquid form.

Otherwise I just followed the schedule and it was easy breezy!

Food for the Day:

Breakfast - I was pretty full from my fiber smoothie (ha!), I had an apple and a Spark in the early AM.
Lunch - a premade salad from the salad/produce section (It had cheese, chicken AND dressing and it was only 230 calories.  Win.) & some greek yogurt
Afternoon Snack - raw baby carrots and a hard boiled egg
Pre-Dinner Snack - rice cake (which was basically just to hold me over because I was STARVING when I got home from working out and wanted something quick while I made dinner)
Dinner - Herb Crusted Salmon and a Salad with Blue Cheese crumbles and almonds, a little bit of strawberry vinegarette dressing
After Dinner Dessert - cut up bananas with cinnamon and honey drizzled on them (YUMMY)
Water - I did really good with water today I think I had about 9 or 10 glasses (8 oz each) (that's REALLY good for me)
No Soda, No Coffee, and No Alcohol  :)

I am probably not going to share my food every day because I imagine that'll probably get boring real quick.  If I try anything new or amazing I will definitely share.  I am kaagy2006 on My Fitness Pal if you'd like to follow along there!

Workout for the Day - ran on the treadmill for an hour after work.  Well, it was more of a walk/jog/run combo because the bottom arch of my foot (is that called something?) starting hurting about halfway through.  I really think I need new tennis shoes, the ones I have are getting kinda ratty.  Either way I went 3.69 miles according to the treadmill distance thingy and burned 535 calories.

I didn't really take any pictures today challenge wise so here's a picture of my kitty for your enjoyment, who decided she needed to help me tonight while I was writing my blog post.  She also decided to be super helpful and help me sweep up around the house!
