In a nutshell, from tomorrow, July 12, until August 12, I will follow these three rules:
- No food or alcohol after 7:30 PM.
- No foods with flour (including gluten-free flours) or more than 20 grams of sugars (per serving).
- Complete 1 hour of exercise of 10,000 steps daily.
Thirty days without pasta, bread, cereal, ice cream, cookies, and pie? That will be the toughie for me. It's the primary reason I decided to take the challenge. I've slipped back into the habit of eating desserts, rolls, pasta, and such, knowing full well that they aren't good for my eczema, estrogen dominance, and right-at-the-border diabetes. I need to go cold turkey and I'm using this 30-day challenge to help me get through it.
So, what did I do yesterday, the last day I could indulge in flour and sugar. I ate pizza for lunch. And, at dinner, I ate pesto pasta and a BIG portion of double chocolate with fudge ice cream.
I am ready!
