Challenge Eat Right - Day 1

Today was the first day of my challenge to eat right (eat whole foods, organic foods and basically healthy food).  I must say I did pretty well.... except for the fact that my left eye kept twitching literally all day, which is likely due to the stress of knowing I can not go out and grab some of my favorite foods (like frozen yogurt and sushi with all the dipping sauces that I love)!!!  Oh how I miss them already.  I only thought about these foods a hundred or so times today.  It's not like I ate them all the time... but I did eat them at least once or more each week.  It's amazing how psychologically it messed with me just knowing I can't have them.  It created temptation and visions of them in my brain (visions of sushi rolls as I made the baked salmon tonight).  The baked salmon was quite good, but not nearly as good as the sushi rolls from my favorite restaurant...  But, I will find the will power to do this!   I think I can I think I can :)   With determination and allot of prayers I will accomplish this... day by day, one step at a time.

Here is the list of what I did eat and drink today.

  • Breakfast - Organic Raisin Bran, Organic 1% milk, Banana sliced on top and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
  • Lunch - Alfalfa Sprouts and Avocado on Whole Wheat with a little Veganaise (similar to mayonnaise but without egg, made from veggies - found at my local health food store), water to drink
  • Snack - Handful of Baby Carrots and a bottle of water
  • Dinner - Baked Salmon (fish) with Dijon Mustard, honey and dill for seasoning, Organic Green Beans and Spinach Salad with cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, mushrooms and chives with a splash of vinaigrette dressing, water to drink
So far so good... Day one is almost over, phew... only 59 days to go.  I've heard that it take two weeks to break a habit.  I only hope I will be able to get rid of the cravings in just two weeks!

Until next time...
Healthy eating!



  1. Good girl! I am very proud of you! My day went um okay. I MUST remove all the Easter candy from my home. Without Kendall noticing. ;) I had tuna and whole wheat crackers (late morning) chicken, veggies and white rice (I know bad) for lunch, some gluten free crackers for snack and grilled veggies for dinner. I did have a few Tootsie Rolls (darn you Easter bunny!) but am hoping to get rid of the candy tomorrow. Or have my husband hide it. :)

    1. Thanks Karey and thanks for being supportive of this and doing it with me! Your mom told me she is going to do it and Britney is on board too :) As for me, COLD TURKEY is the only way to go. I don't have Easter candy, but I do have Jim and his sweet tooth. He has a special cupboard (lol)... I must act like that cupboard doesn't exist! You did pretty good today, tomorrow will be even better :)

  2. I like the veganaise idea-I need to look for that for my sandwiches.

    1. I got it from a place called Clarks Nutritional Center (a local Health Food Store). The best place for you to get it is probably Whole Foods.
