Day 18

Time really flies. I am already a little bit more than halfway through my 30 days challenge. I really think that it is a correct decision to publish my challenge in my blog because whenever I got the tendency to slack off, the thought of my challenge being published in my blog will spur me on because my name is on the line!

Difficulties Faced

There are some bumps during these 18 days. There are so many times when I feel like grabbing that piece of bread from the bakery or drowning myself in that bowl of pasta, so many times that I had lost count. I manage to keep the processed starch at bay for now and sometimes it can be a little challenging for me when I see the amount of bread my mum brought home.

The morning juice isn’t so bad, the only complain is the time I took to prepare the juice and cleaning the juicer. I had added more lettuce and spinach into my juice and the juice turn out to be a little more bitter than usual but I am still fine with the taste.

I had missed 2 of my cardio exercises as my legs can be kind of wobbly after my resistance training. Anyway it isn’t an excuse and I will make it up in the coming week.

Current Stats

I am currently weighing at 148.8lbs. I had lost a total of 11.8 lbs from the date of starting my 16 weeks challenge. (4.1lbs lost from the start of my 30 days challenge.)

    Inch by inch we are nearing our goal, and we will reach it if we never give up. This is the pay off for persistence. Nice point, Brian.

    Vincent, I remember the first time I tried a 10 day challenge, I read about it in one of Anthony Robbins books years ago. It took me about 60 days to complete the challenge but by the time I was done I had trained my self into a routine and behavior that kept delevering the results that I desired. My mantra has always been never, never, never give up. Persistence, I know is the hallmark of success. Keep up the great work.

    Never give up, never surrender, never back down.

    @Hi Chris,

    Thanks for sharing your recipe and I am getting bored with my current recipe. Can’t wait to try new ones. 🙂

    @Hi BonnieRose,

    Adding garlic to the juice seems interesting. Didn’t try that yet. I will add it in to my next juice to try the taste. Thanks for sharing.

    @Hey Eric,

    Yes! It is really such a pain when clearing it. It will be great if there is such a thing such as one touch cleaning. We will need to wait for a long time for it though 😉

    It’s great to see you keep up with the goal you’ve set before you. Hang in there!

    That’s funny that you mention cleaning the juicer. When I used to do a lot of juicing, that was one of the things I always hated doing. It’s just such a PAIN! 🙂 Eric.

  5. Keep up the good work Vincent!

    I find it so difficult to stay off starchy foods! I feel best when I avoid wheat, but like my rye bread too much to give it up 🙂

    I prefer non sweet juices, my favourite recipe is:

    2 organic carrots, 1/4 of an organic cucumber, 1 organic tomato, 1 clove of garlic, a good pinch of cayenne pepper & some sea salt + some fresh lemon juice & water for consistency.

    I like the heat from the garlic & the chilli, the garlic breath may be a bit much afterwards though, but hey, it’ll keep away the vampires 😀

  6. Keep it up Vincent you are doing well.

    My favourite smoothie recipe:

    1 cup raspberries, 1 bananna, apple juice to consistency you want.
