I love summer. From Memorial Day to Labor Day the dress code at work changes from business casual to casual and I get to spend three glorious months wearing jeans, t-shirts, and tennis shoes. Every Memorial Day I pack away my trousers, khakis, skirts, and dresses in the hope that by the end of the summer I will find them too big.
This is never the case and I am tired of it. Tomorrow I am starting a personal challenge. For the entire month of August I will eat as clean as possible (whole foods, minimal processing) and avoid my trigger foods (pizza, popcorn, sugary treats.)
I do love eating healthy (I mean, seriously LOVE it) yet I cannot seem to break away from eating junk. I have been trying to move to a more clean diet for that last couple of months. I hope that by doing this challenge that eating clean will become a more ingrained habit.
I will be blogging my way through this challenge and if I manage to make it through relatively unscathed I am buying myself this bag:
Isn't it lovely? It's a nice size, has lots of pockets, and comes with a matching tablet case that I can put my kindle in. I will be officially moving up to an adult tote bag with this baby. It's about time really. I am going to be 31 after all. Oh it also comes in black. I'm not sure which one I want.
Wish me luck!
