What doesn’t challenge you doesn’t change youthat was probably what I was thinking one month ago, when I agreed to this challenge! 😉 And not only that, also because I still havent completely unlocked my personal code for a healthy lifestyle.

In the work-out department I score like an 8, hitting the gym four times a week and challenging myself to reach a new level of soreness after every work-out. haha 😀 . But in the food department I score like a 5 and sometimes a 6. Like so many Fit Girls I’m also still searching for the best nutrition for my body ever since working out became part of my lifestyle. So hopefully after this challenge I will be closer in unlocking my personal code for my healthy lifestyle…

Dare 2 Challenge
So it’s very simple… there are 5 CONDITIONS and 2 RULES. You only need a pretty large doses of self-control or a full-time support system. 😉 The followings drinks and food are off limit:

  1. Alcohol
  2. Soft and fruits drinks (also try to stay away from any light versions, since they contain other substances of sweetness)
  3. Snacks (chocolate, candy, chips, cupcakes, pie etc.)
  4. Sugar (read more about “how to eat less sugar” in the article of Fit Girl Lisanne)
  5. Greasy and fast food

And you need to keep yourself to the following 2 rules:

  1. One cheat day a week (and don’t go flamingo-crazy there, a cheat day could also mean a dinner in a restaurant or one healthy snack)
  2. Time frame: 3 MONTHS (of course you can determine your own period, if one month is already enough of a challenge for you that’s also good)

Why complicate life?
Since I am determined to live a healthy lifestyle, I also need to change my food habits. Working out on a regular base alone is not sufficient and your food intake is as important as your workouts. I also realised that my body is seeking for different nutrition ever since I started working out on a regular base and therefore I am in search for a food schedule I feel comfortable with and gives me balance in this lifestyle. This does not mean I will never allow myself to eat chocolate or a hamburger again, but I am challenging myself to find healthy alternatives for these type of cravings.

I believe that because I am not aware and don’t have the knowledge yet of all these alternative healthy delicious snacks and other recipes, I continue going in circles and fall back in my old habits over and over again. I want to change that and therefore I hope this challenge will force me to make an extra effort and after 3 months will get me into my healthy habits and lifestyle 😀
