It's been a few months since I tried something, and I'm always trying some sort of challenge (my success rate to finish is pretty low though!). I came across 100 days of real food blog recently. And while 100 days sounds crazy, I found a 10 day pledge on their site.
10 days. I CAN DO 10 DAYS!!
None of the things that I have tried have been for just 10 days. The hardest part is Halloween, but I have an idea for that!! Buy Unreal candy (used to be available at Target but I didn't see it the last time I was there), let the kids eat that, and then, after the challenge, give them their candy back.
I think the hardest part for me is the upfront planning: kids lunches, after school snacks, figure out an alternative to Lucky Charms.
OR maybe the hardest part will be getting my kids on board. Not sure I can stand 10 days of whining.
OR maybe my husband who doesn't want to give up Oreos for 10 days.
What I want to achieve:
1) have more energy at 7pm
2) see if my oldest son's allergies lesson
3) see if my middle son's digestive issues get better
4) lose a few pounds for the Jillian Michael's DietBet I am in
How I can achieve this:
1) Come up with a plan for meals and snacks
2) Shop ahead of time, not day of
3) Stick to the plan!
The plan is to head to come up with some recipes and shop at Whole Foods and Traders Joe tomorrow (already in the neighborhood for a soccer game) and spend Sunday creating my menu. Totally doable, right??
Starting 10/27/2014! Will keep you updated on our progress! Maybe I can even have my kids do a guest blog post :)
