Day 3 Fed Up Challenge

Oh hey there. It’s Thursday night and I’m exhausted. But I promised I’d keep you updated on the No Sugar Fed Up Challenge, and I’m keeping to that promise the best I can!

This post will be short and sweet, as it’s off to bed early for this girl. I’ve got to be up extra early as I’m helping run the blood drive at school. I’m going to attempt to give blood for the umpteenth time. My iron is always just a tiny bit too low! I’ve had low iron for as long as I can remember (I even had to take iron pills in college so they would let me play soccer – eww). I should maybe be more worried about it than I am, but I honestly don’t know the difference. Besides, ask anyone who knows me, I usually have enough energy to go around! :)

So on to what I ate yesterday (which was Wednesday, and day 3):

Day 3 Fed Up Challenge I

Breakfast (7:15 a.m.): The same darn smoothie as the last two days. I know, I lead an exciting life!

Snack (9:45 a.m.): Handful of almonds. Nuts are a pretty regular staple for me.

Lunch (11:15 a.m.): Same salad as the past two days (again, exciting life!) with cucumber, avocado, chicken, and cojito cheese. I just bring the entire packages of things to work and store it in the fridge. That way I don’t have to put together a salad every single day (because lord knows I don’t give myself nearly enough time in the mornings!).

Day 3 Fed Up Challenge I

No sugar added dressing = hard to find!

Snack (2:00 p.m.): Bag of Fritos at our work meeting (yes I know, not my proudest moment). One of my staff members always brings treats, and these are my favorite! Besides, they still have no sugar. That counts for something, right? :)

Dinner (8:00 p.m.): For dinner last night we ate at the fiancé’s parent’s house. They always make the most delicious meals. Grilled chicken with peanut satay sauce, coconut rice, and carrot, red onion, and cucumber slaw. Was there sugar in this meal? Yes. Was it at least in the form of not-super-overly-processed honey? Yes. Although I knew there was a little sugar, I wasn’t going to be rude and not eat. Not to mention I was a) starving and b) that food is too good to pass up. So did I cheat? Well, maybe. Do I care that much? No. What I’m really trying to eliminate is added processed sugar.

Biggest Challenge?

Eating at someone else’s house, when you don’t know exactly what ingredients are in everything.

Tip for the Day:

Have and carry with you healthy (no sugar added!) snacks. It’s a lot harder to make good choices when you are hungry!

Alright folks, that’s it for today! Comment or questions? Post it below! I love hearing from you. :)
