First of all, let me state for the record that I believe strongly in the Weight Watchers philosophy of "everything in moderation" when it comes to diet and exercise. But I also feel like it's good for me to step outside of my comfort zone every now and again.
I found this floating around the internet, and I've decided to jump on the bandwagon. 21 days of no junk food! This list includes a couple of items that in my opinion can be very healthy, including chocolate (dark chocolate can be healthy) and peanut butter (natural peanut butter is VERY healthy) but besides those two things, I pretty much agree that the things on this list are not foods that should be eaten every day if you have a healthy diet.
However, lately... I have been eating more junk food than usual. Like, if I have 7 or 8 PointsPlus left at the end of the day, I will eat waffles, ice cream, oreos, potato chips, redvines, french fries, etc... And this challenge will help me to realize that I can eat healthy snacks, and those junk foods really don't have to be eaten daily.
Here is the challenge, and I assume that the blog linked at the bottom of this picture is the original source:
Stacey has decided to join me in this challenge, and so have many members of My Fitness Pal! If you are on MFP and wish to join in, here is the link to the challenge- MFP 21 Day No Junk Food Challenge!
If you want to join me in this challenge, just let me know in the comments and I'll try to help keep you motivated. It should be an tough challenge for me, but a very rewarding one in the end. It will be good for me to discover healthy snacks, and healthier alternatives to my old snacks.
As for the peanut butter... I am switching my JIF Natural for Martha almond butter... I don't consider this to be a "naughty" spread, and am happy with the decision to keep a nut butter around.
So... any takers? :-)
