More Fruits and Veggies

I will eat a heart healthy diet by adding 1 cups of fruits and vegetables each day to achieve at least 4 cups per day.



Avoid refined sugar

I will adopt a diet free of refined sugars, which eliminates sweetened beverages, candy, and processed foods.



Buy Only What I Need

I will not buy anything except items required for health and safety.

    Final day! This challenge has helped me adopt a healthier lifestyle. I definitely won't be giving up sugar completely (because that sounds like a sad life to me), but I will continue trying to increase my fruits and veggies intake and decrease my sugar. I have also been pretty good about only buying what I need, which has been great for my wallet :) I slipped up a few times, but I'd still say this challenge was successful. Good job, everyone!

      It is good to realize how much we're drawn to the sugary items! I agree awareness is good, but deprivation...not so much! Nice work, Emily!

    Suuuuper excited for this no sugar thing to be over. I have been good about eating more fruit, but vegetables are harder for me! I definitely need to up my veggie game.

    Sundays are usually the days I curl up in a blanket and do some online shopping, but I will refrain!

      Good job, although sometimes you do need something, it is good to be a mindful shopper!

    I did well with avoiding sugar and eating more fruits and veggies today, but I sort of failed at only buying what I need. I went to the makeup counter to by some lotion and walked away with a lot more than I needed. This is way harder than I was expecting!

    My boss offered me a donut yesterday AND today, but I refrained and ate my apples instead. I really don't like not eating sugar.

      mmmm...donuts...yay for hanging tough and eating your apples, emily! :D I am with you on the sugar. People offer you sugar all the time! It is hard to turn down all the time...good job!

    Today I made more of an effort to eat more fruits and veggies! I grabbed an apple for breakfast instead of a granola bar and have a salad all ready for dinner waiting in my fridge. :)

      Yay for apple season! What's your favorite apple? Yum yum yum! I fluctuate between pink ladies and honey crisps...

    I slipped up today and ate some Dove chocolate, but I did resist the urge to splurge on clothing items I don't need! I get lots of promotional emails from my favorite stores, so I am making an effort to completely ignore those emails so I don't get sucked in! I ate veggies today, but not enough, so I need to make that more of a focus. I'm thinking of doing some meal prep so it's easier to get veggies during a busy week. :)

      I gave myself a "chocolate" pass for sometime in the two hard to pass! Nice job ignoring the emails. I agree on the meal prep really helping my veggie eating! :D Good luck, Emily!
