Being Accountable

Hey everyone!

For many of you, day 1 is wrapped up.  I'm winding down here so thought I would check in with you to let you know how I did on the goals...

1. 5 servings of fruits/vegetables a day - DONE
           Spinach in morning protein shake
           Apple with morning snack
           Cauliflower, kale, and cabbage in my stir-fry lunch
           Banana/blueberries with greek yogurt as a snack
           Cauliflower, sweet potatoes in curry for dinner

    love it.  I'd like to see some more greens in my day.

2. 64 oz+ water daily - DONE.  As my mom says, I always drink water like a horse.  (And pee like one...TMI?)

3. Limit alcohol *at your discretion -  - Did not drink today, don't usually drink during the week.

4. Limit added sugars - No packaged snacks for me today.  Had a piece of dark chocolate after dinner, hit the spot.  

5. Protein at every meal (eggs, tofu, beans, meat, seafood, nuts, etc) - DONE.
            Breakfast: whey protein in smoothie
            Snacks: Hard-boiled eggs, greek yogurt
            Lunch/dinner: beans, quinoa, avocado, nuts

6. Strength train/circuit 2x/week - Got one of mine in today!  Started the day with Crossfit.  

7. Cardio x3/week - Also got one session in today (overachiever, I know).  I went for a 30 minute run this afternoon.  I'm training for a half, and now full, marathon so I had to get this in. 

8. Do something to make you smile everyday - Yes.  Check my instagram Bananasadvntures - coming home to fresh flowers did the trick.

So now that you know ALL about my day in the Challenge and that I was a huge overachiever..tell me about your Day 1.  Biggest success?  What are you struggling with so far?

  1. My biggest hurdle was working out today. After working a 12 hour day, I still came home and made myself go to the gym at 7. I ran 2.5miles and then worked on arms. Someone told me last week, "you never regret going to the gym." SO TRUE I remind myself that now when I think I'm too tired and when thinking I won't go. I did well eating today, I need to eat more at lunch though so I'm not starving at dinner. Met all my goals. I think workout when I easily could have stayed home was my happy moment.

  2. That is awesome Jamie! It can be so hard to get to the gym after a long day but I am so proud of you. You definitely don't regret a workout ;) Keep up the good work!
