Challenge participants:
At the end of this 28 day challenge, you will either have yourself to thank for success or blame for failure. You are surrounded by a team of amazing people with common goals. There will be times when you want to give up. DON'T! Tell yourself, "I am a Champion"!
You can accomplish any goal that you have set for these 28 days. We can support you, cheer you on, give you information, even hold your hand! But we cannot make daily decisions for you. Unfortunately we cannot give you a magic pill or solution to achieve your goals. It will take hard work and dedication. Let's all commit to each other to stay dedicated and put in the effort!

Today we start posting our food journal. Simply post what you ate yesterday. Trash talk, share a success or recipe!


Meal Prep
 
Our weekly meal prep included:
Dinners and lunches:
Roasted sweet potatoes
Lots of chicken
Frozen veggies (broccoli, spinach, kale)
Beef stew with tons of veggies
Snacks:
Boiled eggs
Deli ham
Almonds and macadamia nuts placed in snack baggies
Oranges and bananas
Breakfast:

Franks is one of the only Paleo tabasco like hout sauces. You can make a awesome hot wing recipe with it. I will have one of the coaches post the receipe. Its perfect for watching sports when the temptation to eat unclean is high.

    Yesterday I started my day off with an egg white omelet with spinach and a side of avocado. Lunch was a smoothie with protein powder, 1/3 banana, spinach, strawberries and almond milk. Dinner, I made Caldo de Pollo with plenty left over for the rest of the week. My snacks throughout the day consisted of apples with almond butter a few almonds here and there. Day 1 for me was a huge Success, it definitely gave me a feeling of "I can do this"

  34. I can't remember if I posted today.

    Today:

    Breakfast: Eggs & Sweet Potato Hash with sausage
    Lunch: Avocado & Shrimp
    Dinner: "fajitas" -- beef lettuce wraps with veggies & homemade pico
    Snack: 5 or 6 Blueberries & a quarter apple I ate while making my son's snack

    I'm not drinking enough water-- I never do. It's hard to drink 64 oz of water when you have to take your bathroom breaks once or twice a day.
