Oxygen Bikini Ready/Eat Clean 28 Day Challenge--Day 2

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Hello everyone!

I had a pretty good day #2. I was supposed to be on cooler #1 "flow" menu, but I have decided to modify Carolyn's suggested plan a bit and on cooler 1 days allow myself an extra cooler 2 fruit or other complex carb.

As Carolyn pointed out we all have to start where we are and it may be best to focus on one change at a time. I know from experience that small changes lead to long term success. Before this challenge I spent about a month or two eating a "cooler 3" diet food wise and easing into the whole 5-6 small meals a day idea. After I had a handle on that, I I eliminated diet coke, splenda and aspartame (that was HARD). Finally, I spent 2 weeks following a mainly cooler 2 diet. All of these small things were done gradually so they were not overwhelming. These baby steps have set me up for success in this 28 day challenge. After some honest thought, I have decided that as someone who was often eating 3 or 4 servings a day of fruit going to cooler #1 plan for 5-6 out of 7 days where all I can have is 1/2 of an apple or a pear every day a is a bit more then I can do. I have cut back on the dairy and that is my huge change for this week--maybe I will tackle the fruit next week. At any rate, I am keeping all of my foods clean and have started strength training for the first time so I feel pretty good about my progress for the first 2 days of this challenge.
