With this new month comes not only the change of seasons (if you are from New Zealand, today is the day we can officially say goodbye to Winter and hellooo to Spring!, although the weather out there this morning resembles nothing of a Spring day) but also my first day of the “September Challenge – No Junk-food for 30 days” ..YES, I am one of those people who do “those” kinds of challenges haha and what?! If it’s going to help towards motivating me or giving some kind of incentive to get my ass up and doing shit, then I am all for it. PLUS – I’m doing it with a friend and if you know me, you’ll know I HATE failing or losing especially when there are other parties involved ^.^ .
So, the September Challenge is pretty basic really and quite self-explanatory; - for the next 30 days of September we are not allowed to eat shitty foods. No take aways, no quick-fast-save-dishes-meals, no sweet treats, no shortcuts, no cheat days or meals, ya get the drift of it all :)
I’m prepared for my body to love and hate me for this haha. Should be fun, should be interesting!
Some of you are probably like, pffttt EASY! ..that’s cool, hi5’s to you! For me, personally I’m going to struggle lol I LOVE take away foods and all kinds of other good but naughty foods.
I actually freaked out as this day got closer and closer. But I’m here and I am excited and I need/want to do this.
With each day that passes we are required to post daily in our Private/Closed facebook group (FBM) with our progress (whether we fail that day or succeed, it all matters!). BUT with a failed day comes consequences, so, if there are any – an extra day has to be added after the 30 days are up. Our mission is NOT completed until 30 days have been reached.
#DAY 1 happened today. It’s been OK. My mood was like the weather; - gloomy and dull. Food wasn’t my escape route though. Woohooo J I stuck to just 3 meals, reasonable portion sizes, no bingeing in-betweens. BIGGEST DEAL for me because I luuurrrvvee me some binge eats! Fuck, I did struggle after dinner tonight though, I wanted chocolate or ice-cream or BOTH but I fort that fucking craving and I didn’t crumble!!!! Posted todays ventures on the F.B.M fb page and now it is time for me to chillllllll. Ahhhh I like the sound of that.
Today is the first day of Spring,
Today I conquered DAY ONE of the September Challenge – No Junk Food for 30 days,
Today I am thankful for everything I have in my life,
Today is the first day of CHANGE!!!!
DAY ONE = DONE & DUSTED!
