How was your Saturday? I know it is really challenging to stay on track throughout the weekend because everyone else is doing their weekend thing, eating their weekend treats, and drinking their weekend beer. But just keep in mind that although this is a lifestyle, right now we are kind of working clean eating overtime to up our game. We won’t always be doing a challenge but right now, we are! So let’s make sure that if we do cheat this weekend, we get right back on track after our meal. That being said, a cheat (or treat) meal is totally fine! Enjoy! And send me a pic of your food so that we can all see what everyone is enjoying. firstname.lastname@example.org
I am forgoing the cheat meal this week in trade for my two days off of working out. Still nice! I have taken both yesterday morning and this morning to enjoy quiet time, read my Bible, and catch up on some things that I have been needing to do. If you have little ones, you know how valuable this quiet morning time is.
Speaking of not doing what everyone else is, just know that you ladies are doing exactly that. We are very few. But this is how you are supposed to eat, this is how you are supposed to live. Before there was junk, this was all there was. What we “clean eaters” are eating was it! It was the norm. Now it is considered the norm to eat processed food full of preservatives, get sick, be on medication for most of your life, and age terribly. Well, even though it’s the norm it doesn’t have to be that way nor should it.
So let me just thank each of you for being a wonderful example. The more of us there are, the closer we get to a new normal!

Tomorrow we will make sure we have a fail proof plan in place to ensure that we make progress next week. Talk then!
