This is the first big challenge. This assignment will change your body in such a slimming way. I’m getting sexier just thinking about it. It is for 3 consecutive days. Depending on when you read this (we’ve got people from other countries!), you can do this challenge on Tues/Wed/Thu or Wed/Thu/Fri, and so on. The latest you can start is Friday, December 21st. I’m starting tomorrow (Tuesday). Here’s the assignment:
Day 8-12 of the Fitness Jump Off
1. For 3 consecutive days, complete one of the two options below:
Option A: Eat 8 green meals in 3 days. A green meal is a meal that includes at least 2 cups of vegetables. Fruits, beans, and proteins are allowed but 2 cups of vegetables must be present for the meal to count. Snacks count as meals. Examples of acceptable meals are: egg omelet with spinach, bean salad, salmon with broccoli, veggie medley, green smoothie, etc. You are not allowed to have any restrictive foods an hour before or after your green meal, nor during your meal. Restricted items include: cheese, crackers, all bread, fried foods, and white rice. Stop rolling your eyes. This is doable! The worst thing that will happen is you’ll be caught with green stuff between your teeth. You’ll be aight.
Option B: Eat no more than 350 calories of sweets in 3 days. You can spread out your consumption of sweets or eat them all at once. For example, if you know you are going to a holiday party, then I would save up your sweet calories for that event. The key to success is to overestimate how much you’re eating -if you don’t know the nutritional info. If it’s a big cookie, assume it’s 300 calories or more. In the same breath, if it’s a small, Nutella brownie, it’s probably super high in calories, too. The following sweets are limited to 350 calories total: dried fruit, protein bars, baked goods, honey, agave nectar, juice, all sodas, and candy. Please reread that list. For my nitpickers, organic, gluten-free, and homemade sweets are still sweets. Stop trying to be slick.
When choosing an option, I encourage you to pick the one most challenging for you. The one that will make you super proud of yourself once you’ve accomplished it. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can do both.
What option are you choosing? What day of the week are you starting? Are you optimistic or never coming back to my blog again?
I’m sure there are questions. Ask away.
