As you know, Jeff Graham and I are having a personal contest to see who can lose 29 pounds by January when we officially launch RVL. I am happy to report that I have officially said goodbye to the 190s! I began my MonaVie RVL challenge with the goal of reaching 169 pounds, and I’m thrilled with my progress so far!
This past week and more particularly when I was handing out Halloween candy to the trick-or-treaters, I sniffed the Snickers bars but didn’t taste one! In fact, so far I’ve been able to go without cheating by having a candy bar or ice cream or anything like that. Oh shoot, I forgot: I did have one cookie on a Delta flight to Utah. It was a gingerbread cookie, and I caved in! But that’s the worst I’ve cheated, and it’s only happened once so I am giving myself an “A” so far. Hey, after running/jogging 20–24 miles each week, I definitely think I deserve an “A.”
Now, I wouldn’t be honest if I told you this is all easy. For me, the hardest part that I’m dealing with is that some of the days my body isn’t very happy with this new found nutritionally balanced diet. And, my patience has been pretty short. (Not that I’ve ever been accused of being the most patient person in the world.)
This week I’m traveling, and I know it’s more challenging as I travel. But, I’m preparing for it and taking my shakes, snack bars, and dietary supplements. So, I’m visualizing a successful week of travel with my Bullet Mixer (I love the Bullet Mixer), my MonaVie RVL Nutrition Shake Mix, Snack Bars, and Dietary Supplements along with sensible dinners (I try to have a salad with some protein on it and a bowl of black bean soup). This is a lifestyle change for me, and it will be for you too if you really want it bad enough.
Again, I’m doing this for my wife and kids and for me. I’m putting my health first for once. I know how hard it is. I have empathy for all who will join me on this journey, and I’m trying to be a good example. That’s a lot of pressure on me, but sometimes we need to step out of our box and declare our intentions in order to be completely accountable.
I believe in you! And, I believe now more than ever that MonaVie provides a way for a healthier, More Meaningful Life!
