Fit Girl Shel

January 5, 2015

Today I’m starting a fitness challenge with a couple friends of mine (and a few thousand strangers). It’s a 28 day challenge with a schedule of meals and workouts, called the Fit Girl Guide.
While I’m all for a good hard workout, I like to eat what I want. The challenge for me will be sticking to the meal plans provided. However, I think I can stick it out for 28 days, especially if it yields results!
For the first week, the challenge has the same breakfasts lunches everyday. Im not doing that, sorry. I will stick to the idea of eating healthy, but I need variation! So, for breakfast I made an overnight oatmeal with almond milk, honey, Greek yogurt, and blueberries. For lunch I made a roasted veggie “power bowl” with brown rice and hummus. I’ll let you know how they taste when I eat them.

Groceries for the week!

My dinner is a whole wheat pita pizza topped with spinach, mushrooms, roasted red bell pepper, and roasted garlic (the last two were extra veggies I had from the power bowl).

My main goal for this “jumpstart” challenge is to simply get into a good habit and hopefully shake off some of the jiggle in my thighs and tummy. Yes, jiggle. It’s there. I’ll be posting updates at least once a week. Below is a “before” photo taken today (day 1). Let’s do this!
