Monnie has challenged her readers to a 14 day challenge. Two weeks of super-healthy eating – no carbs, no sugar, no junk food and at least 30 minutes of exercise at least 6x during the two weeks. I’m in! Supposedly one can expect to lose around 7 lbs in two weeks on this plan. I’m hoping that dropping a few pounds will help my “hidden muscles” emerge. (There have got to be muscles somewhere under there! Right? Right.) Anyhoo, this shouldn’t be too terribly difficult for me to adhere to – it is very similar to the fast I was on with my church earlier this year. I didn’t eat meat on that fast, but did have carbs (no bread though) so we’ll see if I can handle this for two weeks. I think the key is preparation. So I’ve come up with a menu for the first week and a half. I grocery shop once a week, so I’ve got a while before I need to finalize my second week’s menu. Breakfast is going to be hardest – no oatmeal! Since I don’t eat eggs I am pretty much limited to meat, fruits, and vegetables.
Anyone care to join me on this two week trip? Starts on Monday. I can’t believe some of the stuff I willingly subject myself to….
