I Challenge Thee…

It’s time to get serious.  I’m challenging myself (and anyone who wishes to join me) to eat better and exercise for the next 21 days…through July 31.  As far as the “eating better” part of my plan, I’ve enlisted the help of The Green Gourmet Chicago, a healthy meal delivery company, that I also happen to work for.  I’m getting breakfast, lunch, dinner and a morning and afternoon snack delivered to my door each morning. The menu is designed by our nutrition coach Joelle and balanced to fit the 40/30/30 model of nutrition (40% good carbs, 30% protein, 30% healthy fats).  The meals and snacks are prepared by our chefs.  I’m going to be spoiled, I know.

My plan: eat my GGC meals and snacks, drink lots of water, and exercise daily.  My goal: to see if I feel different, feel better, and hopefully, through eating healthy portions, get back to my desired, healthy weight.

Disclaimer: Yes, I’m the marketing manager of The Green Gourmet Chicago, but I’m going to be honest about the foods, the meals and what I think if them.  I’ve had a meal here or there in the past couple years, but I’ve never eaten GGC exclusively for 21 days.  Our clients tell us they feel they have more energy once they start eating our meals and snacks.  I would love that to be the case for me 21 days from now.

Let’s do it together!  Sign up with The Green Gourmet Chicago for the 21 day plan.  I’ll be blogging daily about my experiences, and I’d love to hear back from you in the comments or on Facebook.

What am I leaving behind the next 21 days: soda pop, crappy foods I like and eat too much of (hot dogs, potato chips, french fries, bread, huge desserts).

What I’m looking forward to the next 21 days: taking control, enjoying gourmet, chef-prepared meals and snacks (and not having to plan, prepare, cook and clean up), and having more fun being active!  Let’s do this!
