Round 2 of 3 Weeks No Cheats

I've been in Las Vegas for SDE's National 1st grade conference and for TeachersPayTeachers first seller conference. It was a great week!  The problem was that only steps away from room 46-711 (at the Venetian) was Godiva Damn Chocolate Store.  Seriously, people.  It ruined me (and my stomach)! Did I gain all of my weight back in a week? NO! Did it ruin all of the hard work I've put into my journey? NO! But, I don't feel at my best when I eat like that....  It is time for 3 Weeks No Cheats. (See below)

On a lighter note...look at these CUTE tanks that my sweet friends surprised me with. I just adore Ruffles with Love!  She sent me my very first cute tank top way back in October!

They were so cute to add this on the back. They always say "What Would Rachelle Do?" and have now started using the hashtag "WWRD".  On the back of their tank it says "THINK #WWRD". HA! They are so clever, amazing, wonderful, and completely SUPPORTIVE. Love you, ladies!

Are you ready for the official round 2 of 3 Weeks No Cheats?

Click {here} to download the day check off list. Print it off and put it on your fridge or pantry door.  Mark off each day that you have no cheats! Try to have 21 days in a row. 

So, what is a cheat?  Well great news! It's up to you! 
 I want to challenge myself and see how far I can push myself.  I'm NOT into depriving myself because it leads to binge eating, but for these 21 days...I'll be ok! We will be just fine and you will be surprised how good you feel.  Let's cheer each other on by taking a pictures and posting them on Instagram using #3weeksnocheats

Here are my "cheats":
*sugar (I will allow a protein shake, a protein bar, and ONE serving of almond butter)
*snacking after dinner (only one allowed)

Here is what I'll add:
*workout 6 times a week
*go up in weights at the gym
*go to yoga once a week
*eat a serving (or two) of veggies with 2/3 meals
