A few weeks ago I saw a post on facebook for a healthy eating challenge. I decided to try my luck and apply and out of 279 applicants, I was chosen to work with Amber from Amber's Fitness and participate in her 8 Weeks to Clean Eating Challenge. If you are not familiar with her story please stop by her blog or Facebook Page. She is truly inspirational and I am very excited that she is my coach. This is something that I needed and a way to get "me" back. The group centers around team building, personal development and accountability. We have weekly conference calls, we are set up with an accountability partner and we must remain active within the group page in order to continue onto the next week. We also have a required reading that we must read each week with the focus on personal development.
Today marks the big day that me and the other 49 group members will set out on the clean eating journey. Each week Amber will provide us with a challenge, free day, and a focus. As we progress, each week builds on the previous challenge so that by week 8 we will be practicing all 8 habits. For week 1 our challenge is to get rid of all of the junk food in our home and to replace it with healthier food options. No cakes, chips, cookies, ice cream, wine and all of that good stuff. Sounds simple right? A few other tips she provided to us was to figure out our proper caloric intake, drink a ton of water and do not skip breakfast. I will post weekly about the challenge and how I am doing and also update with photos. I asked Mr to snap a few shots of me so that I can have some before and after photos. OMG why did I do that...if you ever need a wake up call in terms of your weight, take a few pictures..Good Grief. I refuse to put the side profile up here. Well I'm on my way to getting me back and taking it one day at a time. Wish me luck!
