Who doesn't love a good challenge?
Challenges are what makes us feel alive, right?
The whole idea of a challenge, for us, is to become a better version of yourself. So, with that being said, here we go. We are gearing up to run in a race at the end of April, and thought a challenge would be a great way to prepare for it.
We're no stranger to challenges. We've kicked fast food to the curb (for life), we can survive without soft drinks, so we wanted to come up with something new. So here's the rules for us:
1. No Dairy.
2. Vegetarian Dinners Every Night.
3. Complete Training Plan.
4. Eat Clean.
That's it! The whole "no dairy" rule will be the hardest I think. All that milk and cheese... man. It's hard to say goodbye (cue Boyz II Men), but for 30 days, totally doable. The whole idea of eliminating these things from our diet is to make more room for more fruits and vegetables. One thing we love about where we live is all the farms nearby. We really have no trouble getting fresh produce, and we're thankful, because where we're from, it's virtually impossible.
I'm also going to be re-reading through this book during the challenge. If you're a Christian and you love Jesus, but religion has beat you down... or if you're not a Christian, and simply want some actual facts, this is a great read.
So, here we go! You're welcome to join us if you'd like! The challenge starts today and ends April 16.
