Getting Healthy for Summer #3weeksnocheats

As I am trying to finish up the school year and coming out of the grad school semester, I am trying to get back into a better workout routine.  I consistently do yoga, but I want to get back to working out 5-6 days a week.

I follow lots of great teachers on Instagram.  You can find me at http://instagram.com/ideabackpack. I often share pictures of my lunches and what I am eating.  Actually, one of my students told me yesterday, "Mrs. Walker, you always eat so healthy." I thought what a nice complement and observation from a student.  This was my lunch yesterday that she commented on:

I have seen several people jump on the #3weeksnocheats challenge with Forblognesssake.

The idea is not to cheat on your meals or workouts (whatever your weakness is) for 3 weeks.  Today was my first day.

Not cheating for me means:

  • workout 6 days a week
  • Minimal sugar
  • No chocolate
  • No soda
  • Minimal or no dairy
  • Minimal or no gluten
  • No soy
  • Minimal corn
  • No late night snacking (This is the hard one for me.)
  • No skipping breakfast
I actually started up the Fast Metabolism diet again last week, so this lines up really well.  I am not following it perfectly, but I am trying to follow it as close as I can.  It helps to speed up the metabolism and detox from processed foods. 

What foods would you give up if you gave up your cheat meals?

  1. I will have to check out this fast metabolism thing. I cut out Diet Coke at the end of December. I haven't cheated once. I did switch to Diet Green Tea though and I don't know that it is any better for me. This is the time of year when I pack on the pounds because I basically eat anything I see. Your lunch does look yummy!
