I belong to the
A Team a part of the 2019 Spring 5% Challenge and one of our 2 LTGLs (Living The Good Life) challenges has to earning 10 points a day for each day we did NOT eat Junk Food!!
Well ANYONE who knows me KNOWS I forever plan on eating a limited amount of junk food for the rest of my life!! To me any junk food in moderation, as my calorie allowance has room for is a GO!!
If you're new to my blogs, you may be thinking "Oh that's JUST NOT RIGHT!!" Or "GO FOR IT!" You see I've never ever been a "good eater" , but for the 1st time in my decades of life I am eating so much healthier than I ever had!!
Here's the before and after picture
I've been on SPARKS for over 8 years and I've done things many have/are doing with cutting out foods and lowering categories, but long term they do NOT work (long term meaning for life) I had hit 174 in 2015, but ended up with a bone infection and could not exercise as I had been for almost a year. During that year my weight SHOT UP to 215!! I LEARNED!!
Cheri (Cheririddell and MaryAnngi
plus so many others including Raylinstephens who taught me it's OK to EAT JUNK FOOD and STILL be SUCCESSFUL!!
And they are RIGHT!!
During the 2 weeks I DID TRY to show myself that I COULD DO THIS sometimes. Out of the 14 days I DID SUCCEED in NO junk food for 8 of them!! To me, that's INCREDIBLE!! BUT!! It wasn't enjoyable to me. It felt more like I was being deprived, but still as the CL of the
team I felt I needed to try it.
So what did I learn? I CAN Skip a day here and there of NO JUNK FOOD but on the days I had when I did eat it again I ATE MORE than I WOULD of.
Still, it was an experience I am ok with trying. It did show me the above.
If you're on the 5% challenge which team? How did you do during these past 2 weeks?
If your'e not on the 5% Challenge how do you do with days of no junk food?
