We are doing it friends. Every day the Abel family is getting healthier. Thanks to Ed at Ed’s Gym, we are ten months into Jeff’s Crazy Idea, and our family seems to really have turned a corner in making some major life changes. Are we always perfect? No. But we are’t the same people that began this journey in January.
The Three Things Throw Down
So to share the health love with everyone, this week on Facebook I threw down a challenge to all of my friends. I’m calling out folks to 30 days of eliminating three things. What are they? I’m so glad you asked! Here are the three things that are crap (yes, I said crap) and they’re killing us as a nation.
1. Soda and Candy (Think anything that fizzes and all forms of candy. That includes bars, canes, corn. Yes, I know it’s almost Halloween. You can give it away, just don’t raid the kid’s trick-or-treat stash.)
2. Refined Carbs (Think white breads, chips, pastries, white pastas, white rice, bagels, most cereals) and…
3. Fried Foods (Not that this needs explained, but if it is fried, just say no for 30 days)
Just 30 Days.
Can you do it? Or will you make excuses?
Come on now people. You know that there are absolutely NO nutritional value in any of those three things I listed above. And I am here to challenge you to simply give them up for 30 days. I am calling you to accept this Three Things Throw Down for a Healthier You in 30 Days.
You CAN do it.
Will it be hard? Is this extreme? Maybe, but let’s get some perspective. Hard is the death of a loved one. Hard is loosing a job. Extreme is the epidemic of diabetes and heart disease in our country. Eliminating unhealthy food? Yes, it will be inconvient and it may make you cranky, but I don’t think it falls into the category of hard or extreme.
So if you want to join us start October 22, 2012. The challenge ends November 21st, just in time for Thanksgiving dinner. See how easy I’ve made this?
While you are “giving up” the crap food, think about what you are going to put into your body to fill you up. How about…
- Fresh fruit
Once the 30 days is up then let’s come back together and see how it all went down. Are you with me?
Lets do this! If you up for the challenge, leave a message in the comments.
