One Month Challenge: Eating Clean, Week 4

Wow, time flies! Can’t believe my challenge is over – or at least my blogging commitment! I have to say that while I am a bit sad, I am also relieved. It isn’t always easy to be mindful of what you are eating, especially when so many factors are conspiring against you.

Just like everyone else, this year I pledged to finally start working out and eating better. Part of it is vanity -- who doesn't want to look good in a bikini at the beach this summer? -- but the other part is knowing that, as I get older, I have to start taking care of myself if I want to live a long, healthy life. The problem is, I've always had a hard time getting (and staying) motivated -- but not anymore!

We're a month into 2011 already, and I don't know about the rest of you, but I've already been slacking on my New Year's Resolutions. I really did try to work on things for the first few weeks of January, but as I fell back into my normal routine and Winter Break faded further into the past, so did my ambitions.

he weather is finally starting to warm up, and summer will be here before we know it. While I love summer and I'm excited to have the time off to relax and have fun, just thinking about the fact that sundresses, short-shorts, and bikinis are in my not-too-distant future makes me cringe. The fact of the matter is, my body isn't quite ready for skimpy summer clothes just yet.

While biting your fingernails, you try and find a way to prevent it. Is it the large portions of Ramen you've been consuming? The lack of sleep?

There are lots of ways to ensure you stick to your goals, one of them being accountability.

Sippin on Gin and Juice. Sans Gin. For 3 days. Yep.

Fact: on a daily basis the majority of us treat our bodies like crap. Sure we work out, we (try) to eat healthy, we pour over the latest health magazines and shell out dough for cute workout gear. But there is nothing healthy about an existence made up of 3 hours of sleep; daily Venti Americanos; and too many weekends filled with booze, late night pizza and drunkity drunk dip, to keep count.
