May Food Challenge



Happy Friday everyone! Can you believe it's already May? Time sure flies but this doesn't stop me from living life and exploring new things.

For the past four months I have been eliminating certain foods from my diet to not only challenge me but to get back into bikini/swimsuit shape. I have given up sweets, alcohol, dairy, and sodas/sweet teas. It has been a great challenge so far. My taste buds still love me, and I have a better appreciation for food and drinks. Giving up certain foods has helped me be more conscious when it comes to grocery shopping and cooking. Also, I decided to continue to give up sodas unless we go to a BBQ and there are sodas available. I may give in for a day which will be fine. After all, my month of no soda is over so I can squeeze in a soda or two. 

This month I am giving up any snack food like chips or popcorn or there like. This won't be as difficult but it will be still challenging. Popcorn basically is kind of a healthy snack yet I love to add butter to it and then it becomes bad. Chips are my weakness. I love barbecue flavored chips. I could devour an entire bag when I'm bored. Plus, with warmer weather and spring events happening all over chips are always around.

At home I can easily replace snack food with veggie sticks, unsalted nuts, and fruits. Yet, when you are invited to parties this will be a challenge. Then again, we won't be invited around here, so this shouldn't be an issue. I know I can do this, it will be just interesting to go around my beloved {unhealthy} snacks.

Wish me luck!

Good luck! That's my weakness, too, chips. Specifically cool ranch. But I'm finding now the processed foods and junk taste horrible and I immediately regret my cheat. I think I'm *finally* off chips...

oh, I love buttery popcorn too! Good luck with this new challenge. Maybe bring some healthy snacks with you when you go to parties, if you know a veggie plate won't be available? Have a great month, Selma!

I am so impressed on how you push through. Really amazing. I kinda love chips and popcorn and this would be hard. Maybe not as hard as cake and candy but still. Maybe I should give it a try... right after I had another bag.

I was doing so well with cutting foods and only drinking water for a while. I honestly don't even know what happened. Good luck to you!
