My First Weekend of 40 Days

This weekend was my first weekend in my 40 Days challenge – and I am happy to report, it was an easy one!

Our weekend started out with a major test for me – our first night out on the cleansing diet – Charles was lucky enough to score tickets to the Sixers game on Friday night vs. the Atlanta Hawks. His company has a box at the Wells Fargo Center that they give out tickets to games all the time. It is a nice little perk to working there! Great seats with people you know..and the box comes stocked with eats and drinks to enjoy while watching the game.

I wasn’t sure if this was going to be a major temptation for me.

The box was filled with water which I expected. I may or may not have drank 3 of these bad boys during the game.

Hydration is key, right?!

I came to the game super prepared with healthy snacks in my bag of tricks – my favorites being grapes (yes I carry grapes around in my bag for emergencies just like this), and pistachios. These little nuts are my new favorite obsession – but I am only really enjoying them on the weekend – it’s my weekend treat!

Half the fun of going to a game is watching & snacking, right? With my snacks, I didn’t feel left out at all.

I was nervous I was going to give in and have a beer – but I honestly didn’t even have a taste for one. It’s funny how before this challenge, giving up my glass of wine at night sounded like the worst thing in the entire world. But I committed myself to this challenge and this program weeks before it started, so I knew what I was getting myself into. I was prepared mentally to give certain things up and because of that I have been successful this week.

Aside from the game on Friday and the Snowy Saturday, the rest of my weekend was uneventful and I was able to get lots of rest and eat all the right things. It was lovely.

Oh, and the Sixers won!
