31 days clean. I mean totally clean. SO clean that three days after the big finale and I feel bloody awful, mainly due to the fact that I have had several glasses of wine since I finished the challenge. Body says ‘no’.
I found the last week easier to be honest on the coffee front. The big test was what I would select as my morning drink of choice on the first day of ‘freedom’. I chose Redbush tea.
Here are the BEFORE photos…
Weight loss 1.8kg (about 4lb, although my scales at home say nearer to 7lbs lost)
Body fat down 1.2%
Muscle mass down by 0.3kg
Bone mass unchanged
BMI down 0.6 to 24.6
Metabolic age is now 39 (down from 42). Gotta be happy with this as a near 46 year old
Waistline reduced by 3cm. Nice!
Body fluid % up by 1%
Visceral fat also unchanged at 5%
And here are the AFTER photos….
Arms a bit less flabby I think, and the belly no longer has that involuntary wobble which it’s had for 6 years since I last gave birth. Yay for that.
So, all in all a decent outcome. I have learned that I can live without alcohol and coffee, but that I don’t necessarily want to. I have also learned that drinking it now makes me feel BAD. Which to choose – pain or pleasure?
