Today is the first day…

So, today is the first day of my 30 Day Challenge – the commitment I’ve made to myself to ramp up my workouts, eat clean and finish 2009 strong. I’m putting myself out there – the good, the bad and the ugly. I hope this inspires you to stay focused during the holidays.

Here’s how things went today:


2 scoops Nectar Fuzzy Navel protein powder with water

Fage Greek Yogurt (2%) w/ 6 blackberries & 1 tsp honey, coffee w/ 2% milk

Steel cut oats made w/ 1% milk and water, 1 tsp Agave nectar and 2 tsp natural peanut butter

String cheese

Lentil soup

2 cups Kale sprinkled w/ parmasan, 1/2 cup zucchini, 6 oz salmon

2 Dove dark chocolate squares


45 minute Kettlebell workout


Hectic day. Wasn’t as prepared food wise as I should have been. The coffee was a mistake – I felt queasy for hours afterwards which made my workout extra hard. Should have had one more serving of vegetables.
