I saw this challenge on a blog that I read daily: My Struggle With Perfection. Just reading that post I’ve seen that we have similar eating habits. I would compare calories and I would see that something unhealthy, like a homemade cupcake, actually had the same amount of calories as something ‘healthy’. Naturally, I would swap it for something unhealthy and justify it by exercising more or restricting myself harder for the rest of the day. Well, no more. Welcome to the twenty-one day challenge.
No biscuits or cookies.
No cakes, donuts or muffins.
No white bread.
No fast food.
No nutella or peanut butter.
No ice cream.
