The real reason for this blog is to explain the new challenge for August. The BWLW Challenge for August is the No Junk Food, No Fast Food, No Processed Sugars, and No White Flour.
...where to start...
I'm not going to call B.S. on this immediately.
I'm not a fan of challenges that ask for too much. Throughout the entire blog it repeats the urge to consult a physician before starting. If you have to constantly repeat and re-word asking consent, then it's probably not the best challenge in the world. This challenge is focused more on cooking then anything. With school approaching quickly, cooking is almost not an option. It's either going to be something easy to fix "like a salad" or something I didn't fix at all, "like Panera Bread."
With that said, I'm not going to abandon the challenge, but I'm quite sure I will fail it on the first day. It's just too much of a drastic change from not eating meat to only eating meat and fruits. It I was to plan my meals in a day, it would look like this:
Dinner: T-Bone Steak
That meal plan sounds like a heart attack in three days.
The most contradicting part of the challenge for me is the no processed sugar. Almost 75% of the foods I eat/drink have processed sugars in it. The only way that I am going to work without sugar in my system is if my job gives me full permission to zap anyone irritating with the electric fly swatter. We all know that will never happen so...
So all in all, I'm going to participate as much as I can with the challenge, but if I'm not eating enough or starving myself, I will stop.
On a positive note, the challenge comes with an awesome squat calendar workout. I guess it's time to clean out the junk in the trunk.
Not all of it...just some...

P.S.-This is the third blog in my new book and I have not lost it. I am now able to read my own hand writing. Yay me!!
