30 day challenges...

I finished strong with no fries for 30 days! I was shocked at how easy it was to not order fries. The hardest part was not eating off of Ian or Justin's plate. I have decided to continue with not ordering fries for now, but if I do it won't be the end of the world :) I also won't kick my self in the butt if I eat one of Ian's or Justin's. I learned that I actually enjoy eating the fruit and side salad's that fast food places offer. And I enjoy the veggie options at the "sit down" places too.

Now on to my next 30 day challenge. I will admit it is going to be WAY harder than the no french fries challenge. I am going to go 30 days with out drinking soda...yes you just read right. This diet Dr. Pepper addict is going to not drink soda for an entire 3o days! I am going to start backing down on them on Saturday so that by March 1st it won't be as bad. I have tried this in the past, but I think my mistake was I didn't have a time limit for it. So on a stressful day I would automatically go for the soda because I couldn't say "only ___ days before I can have one". What do you think? Will you join me in this challenge or do you have your own challenge to share? If you did the no fries challenge I would love to hear from you and maybe even post what you learned and how you felt at the end. I know some of you are still on it, so stick to it! You will feel so good when you are done!

Way to go on the 30 day challenges, girl! I think the best thing they do is help us realize that we really can do without things more than we think we can (so that even when the "fast" is over, we don't consume so much). I love that you keep them up...I am thinking about what to fast from with you in this next 30 days. Woohoo!
