Alright, the same rules from Easter weekend apply - I want you to have a
few mimosa s this weekend with your family for mother's day (or while you're skyping with mom from afar).
Onto business...and your weekend challenge!
When I talk to people about what their goals are and what they're doing to help clean up their act, many people refer to three main things getting in their way:
- Grazing, snacking, boredom/emotional eating
- Not having a grip on portion control
- Not LOVING their workout (aka you haven't yet found your soulmate)
This weekend I'm going to give you an assignment that won't CURE #1, but will really help out with the way that you handle grazing, snacking, boredom and emotional eating.
You and/or your roommate, significant other, alter ego will hate me for this but my challenge to you is to TOSS OUT all of the crap that's in your pantry.
You know what the junk is.
The wheat thins, the potato chips, the tortilla chips, the sugar, the ice cream, the oreo's, the nonsense.
I did this activity when I started paleo. While it wasn't easy to dump out all of my comfort snacks, it really helped when feeding time came along because I didn't have the same usual suspects lying around begging to be eaten. You know, the treats that know how to immediately stick to your hips and thighs while simultaneously making you regret the binge and lower your self worth. Bite by bite.
When you do your big clean this weekend, tag me on instagram (@Jessifitpdx) with all the junk you're tossing out!
There'll be a surprise in it for you!
(okay since you're just starting out you can keep the Trader Joe's PB cups, but put them in the freezer!)
Best of luck!
