September’s 5 Day Clean Eating Challenge

Life gets busy and things get pushed aside. It’s easy to say you want to eat clean but following through can be a different story. I don’t know about you, but I definitely fall into that weekly cycle of starting the week eating healthy and clean, but I tend to let it all go by the weekend.

Eating clean always makes me feel amazing. I have more energy for my day. I tend to sleep better and fall asleep more easily. There’s no after meal bloat. My workouts are better. It’s amazing what fueling your body correctly can feel like!

I’m ready to put in a focused week to break my usual weekly cycle. I know it all comes down to being prepared and planning ahead. So I’ve mapped out 5 days of delicious meals to keep us satisfied and full. Knowing what to eat, having it prepared ahead of time and enjoying the food will help ensure our success!

The challenge is starting next week, Monday 9/18! Are you going to join me? I’m so excited about doing this together. I need to get refocused on my health and fitness goals, especially after celebrating my Birthday all week!
