Hello everyone, I'm starting a challenge myself this Saturday(7/7), I've been eating a LOT of added salt lately and really too much fat. I've even slipped up once and ate something that contained powdered SOY MILK!!!!! UGHHH!!!! I've been too leanient lately and not being as strict and aware as I should be! My challenge is this:
First and Foremost, absolutely NO ANIMAL products, literally check every label twice if you must!
Get 8-10 hours of sleep EVERY night
Try to play outside everyday for vitamin D
Less than 10% fat calories each day
No added salts (I know, tough one), only those naturally occuring
Strictly: 2 fruit meals and 1 cooked meal
No fried foods, of course
Plenty of water (I aim for 1.5 gallons most days, but some people do less)
I'll be tracking my progress here, so you can follow and keep me on track if you'd like:) Also if anyone wants to join me I'd love the company. Anyone who's joining me can also give me ideas on the vital things I've missed. Thanks everyone! I won't let you all down!
Day 27, August 1
B: 1 canteloupe, 3 mangos
L: 10 banana smoothie
D: 2 large fries at work(The BUSIEST most stressful day at work I think I've ever had!!!!!) with ketchup and sauces(vegan still, just s***ty & loaded with salt)
Then when home: 2 baked potatoes and 1 cup cooked corn
Water: 5.2 liters
Sleep: 8 hours
So I had a long day at work and eating fries at the end of it was NOT the best idea, but like I said, I'm still new to this and learning how to cope with stress while on this diet so I'm definately learning A LOT:) which is the best thing about mistakes, you learn a great deal from them.
Day 1, August 2nd
B. 6 dates, 1 cup blueberries
L. 4 cups green salad, with a drizzle of oil and salt (I know.. I need more inspiration for salad dressings..)
, 2 cups quinoa salad
D. 2 peaches, avocado-sprout sandwich and an almond butter toast on on flourless sprout bread
Calories: 1827? but far too many from fat
Water: 5 glasses

Sun: 30 mins, was able to go berry picking in my garden and get some delicious salad for myself:) cucumber and zucchni for an other day!

L. 4 cups quinoa-taboule salad with my veggies from the garden (yay! no oil or salt!)
