February 1, 2016. Okay so I am determined to shed some weight, tone up and better my eating habits. In January, I did a 21 day challenge where I cut out meat, sweets, bread and cheese. I lost a total of 5 lbs. which was not bad at all. I will say I was constantly working out during this period so that may have also played a factor in the weight loss.
Well, when those 21 days were over I asked myself “What now?” I kept my diet up for the most part but allowed myself a cheat DAY. Huge mistake! I ate everything under the sun on my cheat day which turned into a complete cheat WEEKEND…I then decided I needed to get back on my grind. So for a total of 7 days, I have committed myself to eating only green things. (This is a form of a cleanse that I read about) Well I wont say ONLY because for instance, with my avocado for breakfast this morning I ate it with a boiled egg white and for dinner I will be having a squash (yellow) and zucchini plate. You get the point! Clean eating is what I am striving for but I must take baby steps or I’ll relapse without any hesitation (sounds deeper than just dieting huh? lol)
So now finally to the purpose of this post, I know I have already started today but I challenge any of my readers, followers, anyone to join this 7 day challenge with me. You can start tomorrow and let me know how it goes. We can do this! Your body will thank you later, I promise. Let’s get our healthy bodies back that the government is sickly taking away from us by charging us just $4 for a burger, large fry and large drink while you can only get 4 damn avocados for $4!!! (inserts note to self: simmer down cowgirl)…(smiles) Cheers to green things!!!
