I hope very well! I know I have had a pretty crazy summer. And it ain't over, really. Still in the 90's here. Even though Starbucks has already brought out their Pumpkin spice latte :/ Oh well. I am so freaking excited for fall. Like, I love it. But I try not to over think it, cause then I always feel in December, that it went by to fast :( October has always been my favorite month. Always. I love.
Mostly cause Halloween is in it. And I love Halloween. No not the scary stuff, I just love dressing up as something fun. This year I am cat woman! First year in a while that I actually bought my costume in advance and put thought into it. Last year I was just a plain ole cat. (Home made) and the year before a devil. Bleh. This year, a reallll costume. So excited. Anyway, as you can imagine, that costume fits a bit tight. Haha. Don't get me wrong- this is not my only motivation to eat better. I have indulged WAY WAY WAY to much this summer. Like everyday has been a day off it seems. It hasn't, work wise, believe me. But in my mind, it totally has been. And thats fine. As long as you have a realization that it needs to stop. If it were to keep going- then we'd have problems. I have got way to comfortable being lazy. Not okay. What about you? Ya'll feel me or am I alone here? Anywho. So I have basically made it a little jump start clean eating challenge for myself. Cause I need something serious and hard, some kinda challenge to get me back up and motivated. And I'd love for ya'll to join me! Thats why I'm sharing it here :) Starting tomorrow- until October 1st. Thats a total of 24 days ! Whose with me?
Okay so this is what I am doing- you can totally change it to your needs and wants. But the point of this is just to eat 'clean'. Meaning no processed foods. Nothing from a box, or bag. K? Unless it's like 100% brown rice or whatever grain it is. Nothing added. No sugars. No dairy. No bread. Yeah, I said it. Just for now ya'll! Don't trip! You can add it bad in slowly after the 24 days if you'd like. I might continue further on through the month of October, but we'll see. I'll keep ya updated :) Actually. I am going to write here everyday to share my progress, and your welcome to share yours in the comment section below. Please!
So in the morning I'ma going grocery shopping! :) And then it's on.
Breakfast will be a choice of Oatmeal with 1 tbsp almond butter or I like to make scrambled egg whites and mix it with no salt added black beans and top it off with avocado and hot sauce. Yum.
Lunch & Dinner are interchangeable ... I like to make garden chicken and top it on salad Or 1 ezekiel tortilla topped with fresh salsa and black beans for a 'mexican pizza' and bake it in the oven. Or Brown rice or quinoa with Black beans and veggies (Probably kale ;)) Or Lettuce tacos with beans or fish. Or Spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles with some sort protein. "chicken" or tofu. Or stir fry of lots of veggies with protein.
Snacks - almonds and or fruit.
Alright ya'll! Thats about it! Whose ready for tomorrow?
