With the hard stuff coming up in 2 weeks I have decided that I could use some more energy. I need to really step it up to the next level to help my body get through this challenge. I eat healthy most of the time but I occasionally have candy, soda, or fast food. I am bad about eating breakfast and tend to snack late as well. I have decided to add a food challenge to my Insanity challenge. I am embarking on a 30 day eating better challenge (it ends the week of Thanksgiving...not a coincidence). I am going to try my best to put muscle building, energy giving, clean foods into my body. I have planned out 30 days of meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. It was very tedious but every detail is accounted for in hopes to keep me on the path. It is not extremely strict but very nutrition conscious to help me feel better. The food I have picked is higher protein and lighter on the complex carbs, and pretty basic. I am also "trying" to really lay off the nasty candy and soda that has been dragging me down these first 21 days. I want to get the most out of my Insanity challenge and stepping up my eating is the next way to do that.
I am also hoping that changing up eating will help me with my sleep issues. This week was especially hard (death in the family), so I was averaging around 3-4 hours of sleep at night. I can feel how unhealthy that is for me I know it is near impossible to lose weight if your body is not resting.
Wish me luck, this week should be a doozy! I keep reminding myself, the only place success comes before work is in the dictionary. Just work hard. No quick fix. No instant results. Hard work!
Happy Sunday everyone! 11 Days until Halloween, everyone have their costumes ready?? You are going to LOVE Amelia's, I promise!
