20 days without sugar and still going strong! It feels good to eat clean. Last weekend I went out for diner with my family. My sister found this amazing place called Waanzinnig ( in English amazing). A biological restaurant with only clean and real food. After a nice diner we asked for the check. We received the check together with candy (full of sugar and e-numbers). I was surprised, it just didn’t feel right to eat sugar and e-number after a clean meal. This is what I feel everyday. I don’t want to waste a healthy day with sugar. After 20 days I’m thinking of one more month of this challenges, until now it is simple and feels great!
My challenge at the moment is eating enough. I start with a healthy breakfast; Mug cake or overnight oats. My lunch is simple but healthy, the left over of last night diner or salad with tuna, eggs and vegetables. I make my own snacks and take them with me to work. After work I drink a vegetable smoothie and cook a healthy diner. It feels like I’m eating a lot but I’m not reaching the amount of calories, proteins etc as I should. I’m still looking for the right food at the right time.
I also changed my work out plan for the week a bit. I bought a yoga mat to train at home and I love it! I still run 3 times a week, I go to the gym 2 times a week and the other days I train at home. The work out at home is only 30 minutes but I can already feel the difference when I’m running. I feel that my legs are stronger and I have more energy. This is great because of my half marathon in March.
So far I’m happy with the results of my challenge. I sleep better, have more energy and I feel fit! I’m seriously thinking of an extra month without sugar. I don’t miss the sugar. Are you also challenging yourself? And what are your results? I keep you updated!
