Hi Friends. Welcome back to the Fit and Hungry fitness challenge. Today’s assignment is focused on what you eat and drink.

Day 11 Nutrition Challenge

Complete 1 or more of the following:

  • Drink 1 gallon (4 liters) of water.
  • Eat 4 cups (32 ounces) of vegetables. Snack ideas: sliced bell peppers, cucumbers soaked in vinegar; celery with hummus or natural peanut butter. Meal ideas: vegetable omelette, spinach and quinoa salad, stir fry veggies with fish, roasted broccoli and eggplant with tofu. Get creative.
  • Track everything you eat and drink for 24 hours. I do NOT want you to count calories or analyze your intake. I simply want you to document what you consume. Write down what, how much, and time of day.  Example: 3pm: 15 almonds. 330pm:15 more almonds. 🙂

Important: This should start on a morning. So, if you check this post at 5pm on Thursday. Start this Friday morning. Or Saturday morning. I love you.

Tip of the Day

It is crucial to have variety in your diet. Pineapples are delicious and healthy, but you shouldn’t gorge on them every day. Your body needs an array and balanced amount of micro and phytonutrients. Mix it up and explore the wide range of food mother earth provides.

Progress Report

Ya’ll. Only 4 days left of the challenge. This is a great thing you’re doing for yourself. Keep going.

Music Memo

In honor of throwback Thursday, here are songs I still love.

@Polly, Yeah, imbalances can happen everywhere. I also have a weaker trunk side. I was in the bathroom more, too. They say it gets better once your body acclimates.

@Carrie. Nice work.

@Katrina. I understand. Sending my prayers.

I’m in Birmingham, AL and we had tornadoes and severe storms all day yesterday so I didn’t really get to focus on this. We are expecting more storms today but a little later on so I’m making sure to get my veggies and water in! Please pray for those who have had damage in these storms. Some have lost everything!

Caught up on Day 10. This week’s ab/oblique exercises made me realize I have a stronger and weaker trunk side. I knew this was the case for my legs and arms but didn’t realize it could be the case for something like ab muscles too. Also ate my veg and drank all the water and walked that many more steps for all the bathroom breaks!

Think I got my four cups of vegetables in with my chicken and vegetable soup (mushrooms, carrots, celery and peas), head of purple cauliflower, and eggplant pizza.

@Lauren. You make my heart full.

Angel · 06/22/2017 at 2:00 pm

@Badiyah. A cup is literally a cup. lol. You would need to measure the mushrooms and onions to ensure it’s 1 cup (8 oz). I wouldn’t recommend a cup of onions, lol, but a cup of mushrooms would work.

Badiyah · 06/22/2017 at 1:02 pm

What counts as a cup of veggies? For breakfast I had sautéed mushroom, onion, and chicken.

Lauren B · 06/22/2017 at 12:41 pm

Of course! I’ve got at least 3-4 cups for lunch (giant salad) and I’m making maple-Dijon roasted carrots and radishes with dinner. Onto my 3rd Liter!!!

@Laurnen. Good. Since you’re on another level, I’d recommend stretching yourself. Aim to eat more vegetables than normal.

Lauren B · 06/22/2017 at 9:16 am

Half a gallon down, 2 cups of veggies consumed and it’s only 9:15am!
