As I was talking to friends, family,& bloggy friends it became quite clear that everyone is ready for the reset button of the New Year! Even though I adored all the fabulous cookies, corn bread dressing, and other treats of the holidays my body is letting me know it is NONE too happy with the food I’ve been feeding it lately. I feel tired, sluggish, and puffy. The solution I’ve come up with? A 10 Day Healthy Challenge that I want YOU to join me on.
I will be posting a new idea everyday for 10 days for ways you can take baby steps to implement more healthy habits into your life. Here’s an outline of what’s to come so you can be mentally prepared for it and then I’ll go into more detail each day.
10 Day Healthy Challenge:
I am personally challenging myself to do a 21 Day Clean Eating Challenge. Even though I usually eat clean, i do it in moderation…meaning that when we go out to eat, I get what I want. And when I want to splurge, I do. I think this is a great moderate way to fuel my body for my workouts and such, but to also enjoy life’s little indulgences. However, for the next 21 days, I am going to try my VERY hardest to only eat clean. They do say that it takes 21 days to form a habit, right? So, here we go!
Here’s what I ate today on my first day of Clean Eating (minimally processed foods):
Breakfast: Banana & Coffee
Snack: Whole Wheat Triscuit crackers and goat cheese
Lunch: Slow Cooker Pork with fresh salsa, guacamole, shredded cabbage and melty cheese. Yum!
Snack: An apple, celery, cucumber, carrot, beet, and ginger juice. Check out brands like Suja, Arden’s Gardens, etc at Whole Foods. (If you live in B’ham, check out The Pantry for juices like this)
Dinner: Same as lunch and kale chips
