After a week of indulging on my vacation and also eating a lot of sweets and treats before – I’ve decided I need to Cut The Crap. All the “crap” I’ve been eating has been affecting my energy level, running, skin and healthy mindset. It’s also become a habit – I’ve eaten dessert everyday for the last 2 weeks (at least).
September 15 to October 15 is the
Cut the Crap Challenge
The guidelines –
- Eat Whole Foods as the base of meals and snacks
- Cut out processed foods as much as possible (cereals, crackers, bars, etc = 2 servings a day)
- Decrease “sweets and treats” to 3 times a week maximum
These guidelines are very lenient because I am still trying to follow Intuitive Eating and restricting would mean taking steps backwards in the process. I think I.E. is working well for me, but I have gotten off track in terms of nutrition and health and it’s affecting how I feel.
I weighed myself today and was surprised and happy to see I actually lost a pound since my last weigh in 🙂 We’ll see how Cutting the Crap affects my weight!
Question: So, anyone else need to Cut the Crap?
Sorry for the weird post last night – I was really feeling bad. I actually don’t feel that great right now either, but we’ll see if it gets worse. I’ll try to tough it out till then!
Tuesday is a new Rest Day for me (on my 4 day running week) this worked out since I still feel sick. I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and will do some strength training when I get home.
Breakfast was on the go! We were running late so I threw cereals, naner,yogurt and PB in a tupperware to eat on the road 🙂
This weekend I discovered a New TJ’s Find – PB&J Bar. It’s supposed to be Peanut Butter and Jelly coated in chocolate.
The “Jelly” was too Jell-o like and kinda weird. I didn’t like it. It wasn’t as good as you would think with a name like PB&J.
But, do you see why I need to Cut the Crap?! I shouldn’t even have bought this!
Happy Tuesday 🙂 See you later!
