I know that you are all going to be excited about not drinking so much water next week, but I encourage all of you to continue to try and drink as much as you can. I think drinking water helps reduce the hunger, helps cleanse the body and helps reduce the intake of other fluids that are not good for you (coke etc). Also continuing with some kind of exercise would be beneficial.
The goals for Jan 21-27 are as follows:
1. Eat 5 serving of fruits and/or vegetables 5 out of 7 days. Try to do 7 days but I know it is hard for those that travel to get 7 days. A serving is considered to be about the size of your fist. For some of you McDonald's french fries does not count as a vegetable, in fact potatoes do not count.
2. No sugar - No sugar means (Cookies, Candy, Cake, Chocolate, Donuts, pop tarts,Sugar cereal etc) I think you know what I mean. . No sugar also means sugar drinks. You can drink diet drinks. I know that most foods contain some sugar, but I think you all know what I mean.
Also, you will want to keep doing last weeks goals of no fast food and stretching. Some of you have asked for clarification of fast foods. If you go to Wendy's and get a salad or something similar that does not count as fast food. But it does include more than just burgers and fries.
Next week you can substitute the 3 hours of exercise for the 15 minutes of daily stretching.
Just think how much better you would feel if you try to do all of the 6 goals that we have had next week?
