21 day No Junk Food Challenge... Warning

OK, so when I chose to try this challenge I thought it would be difficult because OK my addiction to chocolate, peanut butter, and cheese. What I didn't anticipate was that fact that this diet would double, almost triple, my weekly grocery bill. It's a little unfair that healthy food is so expensive and junk food is so cheap.

Day 7

So far I have lost 6lbs in 7 days. I haven't been exercising or keeping track if calories as much as I should but just eating foods off the yes list seems to be working just fine!

Days 5&6

Still want chocolate, peanut butter, and cheese but I have remained vigilant to the challenge.

21 day challenge days 3&4

OK so the weather here sucks it's either 100 and humid or raining. This has left me trying to exercise inside and lacking bon mileage. But I have kept  on track with sleep and food. Both days I stayed under 1500 calories and averaged 8hrs and 5 min.s of sleep.
Note if someone tells you to puree frozen banana and it'll taste like ice cream.... They lie. It tastes like frozen banana, but it's still yummy with raisins.

Stop eating crap day 3

Ok, 2 days down 19 to go. They make the No Junk Food for 21 days Challenge sound easy but have you ever stopped and looked at what is in your own kitchen that you couldn't have or tried watching TV without drooling over some overpriced fating crap that is being thrown at you every couple seconds?

Goal for today is walking 4 miles and 20 min.s of strength training.

Healthy life means healthy choices

The healthiest way to loss weight is a combination of getting enough sleep, eating the right foods, drinking enough water, and exercising your ass off... Literally.

Step one- sleep

Right now I get about 6-7hrs of sleep a night and I need to average 8hrs a night.
New lights out time!

Step-2 food

So I chose to try the 21 day No Junk Food Challenge because my biggest downfall is my love of chocolate, peanut butter, and cheese. Everything else is just something I can put one of these three on. I need to break the Junk Food addiction.

Step-3 drinking

Unfortunately I mean water not alcohol. The body need about eight 8oz glasses of water a day. If it's hot or your exercising the number increases. I plain to drink 10-11 glasses a day sence it is both hotter then  hell here in SC and I will be exercising.

Step-4 exercise

This is the hard part, working my ass off. I have already switched to parking farther away from the store and taking the stairs. I even made a routine of a mile walk in 15-25 min.s four days a week. Now I need to ramp up the action. For the next three weeks I will walk at least 11miles per week and weight train every other day.

Stop Eating Crap

Words to live by.

Step one to my new life is Stop Eating Crap!

In October of 2014 I weighed in my heaviest, 285 lbs. I set myself a goal of 165 lbs. By June of 2015 I had dropped to 188 lbs, but that is when I  screwed up. After 2 months of stress eating I climbed back to 195 and I decided to try the 21 Day No Junk Food Challenge to get back on track. Starting July 31, no junk food for 21 days.
Step one to my new life is Stop Eating Crap!
