Welcome to day fifteen of the Sugar Free Challenge!
We are now officially halfway through with the challenge! Wahhoooo! Great job everyone.
Here is today’s sample menu:
Breakfast: High Protein Cookie Crisp Cereal.
Lunch: Heart-Stopping Chicken Salad. Vegan Option: substitute chickpeas for meat.
Snack: an assortment of fresh fruit, veggies, and a bar of unsweetened chocolate (if you don’t like unsweetened chocolate, substitute a small handful of nuts).
Dinner: Hobos. Take a piece of ground beef and roll into a patty. Top with peppers, potatoes, onions, and carrots and wrap in foil. Bake at 375* for one hour. Tastes great drizzled with dijon mustard or Homemade BBQ Sauce. Vegan option: Two Cans and a Potato
The Exercise Challenge changes this week. For those of you who chose to take part of the exercise challenge, your challenge today is to do 50 crunches, 10 squat jumps, 15 pushups, 20 1-legged calf raises (10 each leg).
This option is for those who do not exercise regularly and would like to jump start their new year with an easy exercise routine. Each round of exercises take just a few minutes to complete. It would also be wise to add a bit of cardio to your day like walking, jogging, bike riding, or jump roping. Right when you get up in the morning, during lunch breaks, or before bed would be an excellent time to complete this routine.
THOUGHT-PROVOKING, MIND-PRODDING QUESTION OF THE DAY:
How has the challenge been going for you so far? We are halfway through, so how do you feel?
Remember that you can track what you eat on the printable Challenge Checklist.
