First of all I do apologize for not writing a post in a whole week. Last week was a little bit crazy in an unexpected way as I ended up spending it all waiting in a hospital (all is good now though so no worries). Unfortunately, that also meant that it was impossible for me to stay 100% dedicated to my 24 day challenge as cafeteria food by nature always will be cafeteria food. Although I made the best choices I could they didn't live up to the standard that I had been keeping the previous week, so I have decided to start off again where I left the week before. This means I am now on day 7.
On a positive note, I no longer doubt the effect of eating clean. After just 6 days, I felt a significant negative difference when I started eating the still-okay-but-not-so-perfect-food in the cafeteria. To top it off my only option in the cafeteria Sunday night was pizza and even though it tasted quite delicious I paid for it the rest of that night and could still feel it laying like a piece of concrete in my stomach the morning after. Honestly, I don't think that pizza would have bothered me very much before I started eating clean. I guess the body adapts quite quickly and right now I don't even want to eat pizza. Ain't that something..
Likewise, I did manage to stay off the Diet Cokes and I am happy to announce that at this point in time I am doing pretty good without them. I don't get the urge like I used to and I don't think of them as part of my daily routine anymore. As a real challenge someone put a 12 pack of them in my house 36 hours ago but I haven't touched them and I won't so that is pretty good. All that being said we did have a long and genuine relationship so I still miss them of course.
Tomorrow, I will be competing in another crossfit competition with the people from my crossfit gym. We will be competing as a team against another gym. I will blog about it tomorrow along with a bunch of pictures!
