As I mentioned before I signed up for a chance to win $500.00 at my gym. I selected the physical Meet Your Goal challenge and was looking forward to the first task. Would it be push ups, sit ups or chin ups? This weekend the first goal arrived on my computor. Do a food plan followed by a food journal. It has to be turned in on Mondays . The next week we have to turn in a food journal on what we actually ate and a new food plan. Each plan we turn in our name is submitted into the drawing.
My first reaction was this was not what I signed up for. I wanted a challenge. Give me box jumps not a food plan. We were given some habits to follow such as the following:
Eat every 1-2 hours Eat complete,
Eat vegetables with each meal.
Eat healthy fat daily.
Don't drink beverages with more than 0 calories.
Eat whole foods instead of supplements whenever possible.
Eat as wide a variety of good foods as possible.
Plan to break the rules 10% of the time.
Eat complete, lean protein with each meal.

I sat down and started to figure out my meals for the week. At first it seemed very daunting but then I got the swing of it and finally after a few hours completed my week. I must say it has made this week easy for me when it comes to eating. I just look at my list, sometimes I may switch things out and that's okay but I have an idea of what I'll be eating.

Monday was boot camp and I voiced how I was disappointed about the task but that I got it done. She said this is the hardest thing for everyone but the most important thing to help you in your success.
