Take 10-Day Pledge

Deb and I have been trying to work together to lose weight. We have a blog together Long distant friends getting fit together that we were working on together but had put it to rest for a little bit, however we are both still texting, emailing and encouraging each other to do what’s right.

Anyways, Deb has asked me to do the 100 days of real food with her. Since I know very well how terrible I am at committing to anything that long I am going to start out with the 10 day challenge. It’s the same as the 100 day challenge but a start that I can handle. Deb is going for the 14 Weeks of “Real Food” Mini-Pledges. After my first 10 days that I’ll start up the 14 weeks.

It’s really not that hard, or at least appears not to be but after looking in my cupboards to get my grocery list ready for tomorrow I am seeing that this could be a lot harder than I expected. It’s not that I can’t do this, it’s just that sometimes groceries are cheaper in the processed isles than the real food isles. My grocery list is going to look like this, this week. I have $20.00 for this week. Milk, bag of peppers, apples, yogurt and a package of fish. I am blessed with all the veggies I put up last year, I have my own chicken, I have my own syrup (from a great friend), and I have a few nuts left over from last years pickings.

I love the number 10, so I’m also going to put 10 in 10,000 steps a day, 10 minutes of stretching and fish flopping exercises a day. I’ve been slack in everything and it is just plain time to kick me in the butt and get this spring started the right way.

It looks like our snow is done for awhile and we’ll be having 50* days for the next few days so I am going to take advantage of them and get out there and move. The less time in the kitchen, the less time to eat. I do have to plan a menu to go with my grocery list and 10 days of real foods.

Want to join Deb and I. There are many options to the 100 days of real food, why don’t you click the link and just take a peek. For some jumping in with two feet and succeeding is awesome, for others a week at a time is wonderful, for me I’m trying the 10 day challenge. I am hoping for awesome and wonderful also.

Take care my friends and do have the best weekend possible.
