He Said: Purification Day “21”: Mission Accomplished!

June 14, 2010 by  

The stretch run was difficult, but we were able to get through the Purification Program without killing each other.  I did NOT go into this with 100% excitement (as you may know, I did it more to support Kat than for my own well-being).  However, it turned out better than I could have possibly imagined.  Here is a summary of my past 21 days:

  • Much better sleep than I can remember having
  • More energy, allowing me to get to they gym more often
  • More energy, allowing me to do more around the house (which minimizes the NAGGING, which is good for all
  • 15 lbs lost, specifically due to the exercise above AND the healthy eating habits of the program  Kat acknowledged the weight losss over the weekend, in her own special way – “I can tell you’ve lost weight.  You look weird.  Or sick.  Or something.” What a catch I have here…
  • Newfound appreciation of veggies.  I hope that we can continue to eat this way.  I wouldn’t call it a “diet” – I never once didn’t eat when I was hungry – but more of a lifestyle change

Here’s what not to do, if you’re planning to give the program a shot:

  • Do NOT start the program over a summer holiday weekend.  Our first 5 days on the program could not have been more difficult, due to all of the peer pressure
  • Don’t think about the entire 3-week program.  Focus on today
  • Do NOT give in – it’s definitely worth the sacrifices!

Kat talked me into having a celebratory glass of wine last night (believe me, it wasn’t hard to convince me).  HOWEVER, if/when she writes about her glass, please know that she had a celebratory BOTTLE of champagne.  Way to ease back into things, babe!

    Awesome… HAPPY that you’d like to do something similar. Although you do have to wait until that baby is done nursing off of mama!

    Great job!!! Kudos for hanging in there–can’t say that I could have done it!

    I laughed out loud for about 15 seconds after reading about Kat’s “compliment” to you regarding your weight loss (good for you!) and your “what a catch I have here…” line. Too funny!
