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!


What would be the hardest thing for you to give up for 40 days?
