Today is Day 9 of your Challenge. Here you will enter your points  for the day from Thursday May 8th.

Randi: I love Kombuccha! Try to have protein for breakfast.

Julia: Eat more protein

Kimberly B: So how can we help you with a better choice at lunch? I find that once I get a taste of that process food and high sugar soda I don't stop - so the only way to get your tastes to change and not crave is do with out - read my post below. :) Also check your jerky - unless it is homemade or special ordered it usually has sugar.

Ana: Great job "yes you can do it" I think you might just be listing your snacks at the end of the day - but perhaps try not to have so many high sugar snacks at evening time. (smoothies, raisins, larabars)

Carrie: I am so glad you survived one day with out beans! :0) What did you think of my bean article?

Cynthia: I know we talked about your body going into ketosis. As long as the sugars are good and you don't feel ill I would say you are safe. So I think now you are going overboard with the fruit. Focus on veggies.

Still struggling to find a balance meal for breakfast? Here are 100 Breakfast Ideas something for everyone. Another amazing breakfast idea is the no oat-oatmeal. It is two servings.

The weekend is fast approaching…here is my thought

Don’t tell me you “slipped”. Unless you physically tripped and your face landed in a box of Krispy Kremes, you DID NOT SLIP. You made a choice to eat something of poor quality. It’s always a choice, so do not phrase it as if you had an accident. You make a poor choice, even once, you’re out. You don’t get to re-start, you don’t get to keep posting. Commit here, 100%.

You never, ever, ever HAVE to eat anything you don’t want to eat. You’re all big boys and girls. Toughen up. Learn to say no. Learn to stick up for yourself. Just because it’s your Mom’s birthday, or your best friend’s wedding, or your company outing does not mean you “have” to eat crappy food. It’s always a choice, and I would hope that you stopped succumbing to peer pressure in 7th grade.
