Day 6 of CAC

Hello, it’s DAY 6 of my Cleanse for Abs Challenge. I’ve lasted for a whole week now and I feel very proud of myself, pat on the back.

The difference isn’t huge. Though subtle, 3lbs and hopefully newly developed muscles do appear to be making a difference.

Day 6 Smoothie: 10 fl oz of water, 1 whole organic lemon (peels on), 1 cup frozen spinach, 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries, 1/2 tbsp matcha powder, 1 tbsp protein powder — w/ addition of: 1/4 cup pineapple chunks and 1/3 cup almond milk and 1/2 cup celery, another good anti-inflammatory detoxing vegetable

If you were curious to the brand of sports bra I’m styling today, it’s VSX Sport Angel. You can buy them in store or on VS website. I like that it has hooks in the back so I don’t have to mess up my hair when I pull it over my head (jk). Not that I need the support, but I can’t imagine it moving in the slightest no matter how extreme my movement. Yes, it’s that fitting. And if you go in store to buy it now, you get a chance to win either $5, $10 off or free bra coupon. Okay, that’s just my fashion blurb of the day. 😀

Just out of curiosity, I compiled all the images I’ve taken from the last few days of serious, no cheating, no carb, working out. Well, first off, the lighting is different each day due to the amount of natural light I get in the morning, so it’s hard to tell via these pictures. I realized I should have used a tape measure on the first day to measure girth and a caliber to measure % body fat. I will do so for tomorrow! Hopefully for now, you can just take my word for it.

So, I definitely see obliques coming in and a slight slimming of the waist. Barely noticeable but the muffin-top also appears to have shrunken a bit. The muffin-top is what I refer to the fat collected around my belly button. It could just be the lighting, but the skin appears to have tighten a bit. I will work hard to keep it up for another 3 weeks, but I’m excited to see the outcome.

    1. I didn’t feel hungry unless it was meal time. I just ate enough at meal times until I’m full, slowly, to allow time for the brain to recognize hunger. I also noticed a lot less cravings for sugary or fatty food. Something wonderful happens when you start to eat healthy, you start to crave fruits and veggies. I particularly crave strawberries and cucumbers because they’re so refreshing, especially for the summer time.

    1. Thanks for the words of encouragement! It’s been tough seeing the scale waiver up and down, but not giving up is the key. I definitely feel stronger, just have to keep pushing myself and being patient.
