I know that if I ate anything even close to healthy, I'd not only get to my ideal (in my mind) weight of 170 pounds, but I'd be far more competitive. That's why "minus ten."
The spark that triggered this blog was provided by my friends at Wheaties FUEL because they chose me to be a 2011 Team Wheaties FUEL Ambassador (1 of a 100) . I can't talk about, and be a part of, something like Wheaties FUEL without being genuine. I mean, it doesn't matter if I look fit if I eat like trash and am more well known for my love of cookies than athletics? (No, for real.)
So thus my quest begins and here are the goals:
- No more soda - I'm embarrassed to say how much diet soda I drink per day. I'm sure artificial sweeteners are safe, but I'm also sure that only applies to people who don't drink as much as I do.
No moreDrastically reduce sweets.
- Eat great foods (including Wheaties FUEL of course).
- Execute steps 1-3 for the duration, not for a day.
There you have it. It's out, it's public, and I can't take it back.
