Despite by best intentions, this challenge started off with a major fail in the form of two Krispy Kreme donuts for breakfast. I haven’t been to hard on myself for this though, because I had just gotten off a red eye flight and didn’t even realise it was the first of the month!
The rest of the week was also pretty challenging because I was away from home and visiting family, which meant that I didn’t have as much control over what I ate.
This was difficult for me because it felt like I couldn’t really start this challenge, but I did my best to always choose the healthiest option and to only eat when I was really hungry.
If I had to break it down, I’d say that all my breakfasts were junk-free, about half of my dinners were healthy, home-made ones, and one third of my lunches were good, wholesome options.
Although I did eat more pre-made food than I would have liked, I always made sure it was relatively healthy, so I don’t think I did too badly.
Since I’ve been home I’ve been eating 100% junk free, and following the rules I set out for myself exactly. I’m excited to see how my body and my health changes through the rest of my challenge.
