I did it! I bet you are all shocked that I had the will power to complete the challenge. There were some days that I wanted to cave, but continued to hold strong.
What did I learn from the challenge? I read labels much closer and clean eating can be expensive. There are not many coupons floating around out there for fruits and veggies.
Will I change my diet forever? Sorry, but the answer is no. I love Starbucks and chips.
Will I do another challenge like this? More than likely. I’m thinking if Emilie does another challenge this fall, I may be up for it by then.
And of course, since the challenge is over, I just stumbled across this blog. Super cool. I wish I found it a week ago! J
oatmeal (cold) with almond milk and blue berries
mixed greens (from Stacy’s garden) w/ tomatoes, avocado, red/yellow/orange peppers w/ balsalmic vinegar and olive oil
black bean burgers from this blog (almost perfect, next time I’ll sauté the onions 1st) - Ward even liked them!
132 oz - how did that happen?
I received a package in the mail two days ago from the Boys and Girls Club. When I opened it up – there was a letter
And a medal!
How cool is that?
Can anyone guess what I'm going to do first thing tomorrow?
