Guess what, I did not make it through the buzzfeed clean eating challenge. I will tell you why, I have a good excuse, I promise. See what had happened was.....
I ended up in the hospital from terrible "something" poising. It might have been food poising but I highly doubt that, although it could have been because it happened right after the day I cheated for a work dinner. I don't know, I got sick. I missed work for a few days, couldn't eat solid food for about 28 hours, it was terrible. After that catastrophe, I tried to get back on to the challenge but I ended up missing a few days, so I just used the left over ingredients to make " clean eating inspired meals".
I did this because I knew that I was leaving for a Florida road trip a few days later. (This was around 4th of July). Then I came home, went to work the week after and left for Arkansas the following thursday, came back and now we're here, a few days later. It was just hectic time and I hope that in the future, I can make myself try it again, and allot proper time to completing it.
Here are some tips I can give you.
Stick to the plan, if you get hungry, drink a glass of water and if you're still hungry after that have a snack.
Make sure to keep an accurate journal of what you ate and liked vs. didn't like. It helps when you want to remember stuff to keep up eating clean.
I will say that I did get a few things from this challenge, how easy it is to pack and carry lunch from home, as well as to do meal prep on Sundays or an allotted day of the week.
Hope you enjoyed and I'll be back to blogging now, I'm finally home and settled (for a couple weeks, until I move back to school and start College 101 again)
