Day 1: No Junk – A Dinner Fail

20140218-220309.jpg

Currently sitting at work at 8:30pm starving my brain off <— see I don't even make sense anymore. I was so busy today that I forgot to make dinner to bring to work, and because of this new challenge I have nothing else available to me until after work at 9:30pm. To add to that I have been up since 4:30am because of travel and workout before working at 7am. Tired is an understatement.

Workout today sucked, my right ankle was killing me so it was very easy workout of 20 min walking on the treadmill and 10 min on the bike. Hoping for better tomorrow morning.

So the dinner thing is dumb. I got to work at 3pm and realized I had no dinner. At this job we provide the children with a snack so I thought I could just grab some graham crackers or half a bagel with jam and call it dinner. But alas I can't eat those things right now, so I went hungry. I found an apple and clementine in my purse I ate and plan on getting some solid protein in as soon as I'm done.

I'm a snacker and essentially all the things I snack on are unavailable to me for the next 21 days. I need to get smarter and more organized. 14 hour work days with no dinner is dumb and can't happen again. No I'm not going to wither away from starvation but the point of the challenge was not to stop eating meals, but rather eat healthier. Which I can see in day 1 I need to improve on.

There is a shit tone of chocolate, birthday cake, and other delicious treats at my dads when I got there today but knowing that it is simply unavailable to me made resisting a little easier. I'm not going to say it will be as easy tomorrow though. Today went well, all healthy balanced choices, which I'm happy with. I plan to take it one day at a time.

Alright, only 21 more minutes until I'm done. I hope it passes quick.

Tonight a little girl came up to me and said "wow, you're really pretty!" Yes that made my night!

See you tomorrow!

Update, I ate crackers upon arrival. Why did I put crackers on the list. They shall come off lol

21 Days of NO JUNK!

It has been too long, I know. How have you been, I hope well!!

I actually have been thinking about not blogging anymore but I got this crazy idea tonight, and thought it would be fun to blog about.

Since we last chatted I have been busy, hence no posts. I work 12-14 hour days, with 4-6 to 12 year old children. So I am pretty tired at the end of the day. Plus I am volunteering, working out 6 days a week and trying to keep sane.

My legs are still not good. Getting better but not great. Last week I did 3 treadmill runs all 2.5-2.75 miles at a painfully slow pace of 5.0-5.5 mph. I know dreadfill. Hopefully pick the pace up this week as I want to start training for Ottawa. Crazy how quick time passes when your a busy bee.

Anyways the real reason I am here. Since about December I have just not been eating my healthiest. And it is hard. With temptations around all the time it is difficult to say no for me. Today I came accorss the 21 Day No Junk Food Challenge, and thought – hey I should do that. So for the next 21 days I will be checking in and telling you all how it is going.

The rules…

21

 

It is not going to be easy, but if I can stick with it I know it will be exactly what I need.

Now I best go and get my stuff packed up, I have to be up in the hour of 4am tomorrow to get to the gym before work.

Night xo
