Day Eight Review:

revivaldiet yogurt

Today I woke up and my face was swollen and my stomach hurt. This was because of my cheat day. From eating better and working out, I had noticed some weight loss, my skin was really glowy, and I had a lot more energy. This morning, I felt bloated and gross.

I woke up and made the shake and missed the workout today. Sundays are really busy for me because I co-pastor the Union Square community of Liberty Church with my husband.

I had to catch up on blogging in the morning because Saturday we were in a board meeting all day. So I drank my shake and headed to church. After church I picked up Chipotle for Parker and I. Chipotle is a great option if you are on the go. However, skip the rice.

After chipotle, we headed to community group leaders training. Community groups are the small gatherings of Liberty. Each community has its own set of community groups. Gracie and I are leading one together called “My Life is Fun.” (More on that in future posts)

After community group training, Parker and I met our friends Sarah and Tyler Brann for coffee. After that, I met Janelle for coffee.

I forgot to pack snacks so I didn’t end up eating much after chipotle. I then headed to Liberty Union Square. I was so proud of myself for not eating any of the yummy bagels or cookies in the guest lounge!

However, after church… I went to teach the grow course. At Grow course they had pizza and at this point I was starving. So I ate the pizza. It was delicious but I was still starving.

DAY EIGHT COMPLETE! (Minus working out and eating Pizza…. Need to stay motivated and check that scale!)

How was Cheat Day for you?
