I confess that although I never miss a workout, my eating habits have not been up to expectations. I’ve been indulging a little too often and a little too much, and this has kept me from reaching my health and fitness goals. It’s time to make a change! I’m sure I’m ready. How about you?
Follow my blog and join me on a health and fitness journey!
For the last few months, I’ve been doing some things right. I’ve been drinking water and working out, and I’ve generally avoided junk food.
However, I haven’t kept count of the times that I’ve indulged on unhealthy food.
Now, don’t get me wrong. Indulging once in a while is fine. There’s nothing wrong with that. But when does it become too often?
I have to admit sometimes it becomes difficult to tell when I’ve had too much, and that’s when I think indulgences become a problem.
Am I putting things in my mouth because I’m bored or because I’m hungry? Do I really feel like having a cookie or am I having it because everybody is doing the same? Is it ok to eat anything I want and as much as I want every weekend?
I believe that if you start asking yourself these kinds of questions, then it’s time to make a change because you’re not eating as healthy as you think.
So that’s why I decided to take on this healthy eating challenge.
4-Week No Junk Healthy Eating Challenge
It looks simple, but I bet it won’t be so easy!
Instead of eating junk food, I will strengthen other healthy habits.
- Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day
- Have at least one serving of produce with each meal and one serving of protein
- Do 30 minutes of exercise every day
- Sleep at least 6 hours every night
- Avoid sitting for more than 2 hours
- Keep workouts fun and motivating
I feel very motivated to start taking better care of myself. These last 6 months have been tough, physically, financially, and emotionally, and it’s started to take a toll on my body.
I feel heavy, bloated, and I get stomach aches.
I know I have to start making healthier food choices, or the pounds will start creeping back on.
I want to feel energized and healthy again.
I need to challenge myself or nothing will change.
I’m ready to start doing this! And today is as good a day as any!
Would you like to join me on this challenge? I will post updates every week. Let’s support and motivate each other!
