I didn’t make a post that I was doing this, but over a month ago a friend and I started a health challenge where we would not eat junk food for as long as possible until one of us cheated. You can read Lynk’s post about starting the challenge here. It started off because he decided to make a big change in his life with regard to health and eating properly. Since I had been struggling with consistency in eating well, I proposed we make a challenge to hold each other accountable. Since he lives in Australia, it was simply on the honor system.
Well after nearly 30 days, I was the one who failed. It didn’t even occur to me as I had been eating so well that week, I thought I could afford to have French toast for breakfast. But as you can see below, it was definitely against the contest rules. I always struggle with willpower and this time it was my undoing.
As far as I know, Lynk has still been going strong with giving up snacking and soda, and has even taken up running. Even though my willpower waned toward the end of the competition, I am glad a positive change has been made for one of us. Now I am focused on making a more positive change in my eating habits since the competition.
