Amy’s Purium Experience – Day 20

Amy’s Purium Experience – Day 20

[Previous Installment]

I have made it to day 20! And honestly it is kind of amazing that I am here already.  It doesn’t feel like I should be on day 20.  These last 10 days since my first 10 days I feel like have just flown by without many struggles.  I am seeing how this is becoming easier and easier the longer I do this.  It definitely sets you up for a lifestyle change for sure.  

There haven’t been as many hiccups these 10 days.  No exhaustive days where I had to have two meals and one shake or anything crazy like that. I did try and do a shake in the morning, meal at lunch and then a shake for dinner and I have to say I did not enjoy that as much.  It caused me to have to get up during the night to have to go to the bathroom because of all the fluids that you intake.  Another thing that I tried during these 10 days was I used the Original flavored super meal, and added a scoop of Can’t Beet This powder in with it.  It kind of masks the flavor of the Original flavor to where it mostly tastes like the beet drink which I absolutely love.  I actually now favor doing that then having the Vanilla Chai flavor by itself.  I love how versatile these products are where you can mix them together to get more benefits in one go instead of having to make multiple drinks at once.  

The main thing that I struggled with was over the long Memorial day weekend we decided to build a fence in our backyard.  That was a lot of work, though I didn’t help much with physical labor, my mom helped provide food for our friends and family that helped us build the fence.  Will one thing she brought with her to my house was Oreos.  Well my goodness there are a lot of things I can say no to easily but an Oreo is not one of them.  So needless to say my sugar intake went up quite a bit these last ten days.  After the Oreos were gone though I tried to get back on track of limiting the sugar intake drastically.  

Ok let’s get to the exciting thing.  The See It. Feel It. Track It. tracker.

There weren’t many changes from 10 to 20 days in this category most everything stayed the same.  My sleep went back up.  The Apothe Cherry drink is supposed to help aid your sleep.  It contains melatonin which your body naturally produces.  It is what helps your body fall to sleep at night so having a little extra melatonin is supposed to help you sleep more soundly.  Melatonin for me gives me crazy dreams.  So I don’t drink the Apothe Cherry every single night because of the vivid dreams the melatonin gives me.  My energy has increased, I don’t know if that is due to me adding in the Can’t Beet This into my drink or just the overall benefits of this whole transformation, either way I am usually up and ready to go every day after my first shake.

I LOST MORE WEIGHT!!! And 2 Inches around my waist!  I couldn’t be more excited.  My shorts are finally starting to be able to fit.  I have size 6 Lee shorts that I could get buttoned.  I can’t sit down in them yet but they buttoned! I am just so glad that I keep seeing progress happen.  It truly makes me want to continue using Purium in some sense even after the 30 days.  Results being seen in just a few days at a time is extremely satisfying.  My sum total weight loss is 6.2lbs in a matter of 20 days.  Besides living a normal life and doing Purium, losing that much weight in my mind is spectacular.  I really haven’t been exercising at all.  My goal is to eventually add in exercise on top of Purium but for now I am pleased with the results I am getting.

Like I mentioned previously the Oreos were my downfall these last 10 days.  Besides that weekend with the package of Oreos though I have been doing good at saying no to the desserts.  I am one that has an extreme sweet tooth so being able to withstand the desserts has been a good test for me on my self control.  Another thing I started doing these last 10 days has been getting up in the morning and chopping up a cucumber.  I then leave the cucumber on the table so when I walk by and need a munch on something the cucumber is ready and
