    Default CONTEST: Eating clean - Day 1!

    It's Fitness Month week 2, and that means nutrition, and that means our Eating Clean contest! Every day this week there'll be a thread in our health and fitness forums, and all you have to do to enter is tell us what you ate during the day. The idea is to get a little community pressure going so we all eat less junk food and more healthy, tasty meals and snacks. If you have a food tracker, a Withings scale, or any other device that helps you out, you can simply share your results each day!

    This is a great way to keep us all motivated and accountable, and get a little healthy peer-pressure going! Plus, every day you enter is a chance to win a $20 gift certificate! How's that for motivation?!

    So get ready, and get posting in the thread below!

    Oh heck no! Unless I'm preparing to go to a Sandals Resort somewhere, I eat whatever the heck I want and that is why I run so much. It keeps the junk from showing....lol

    I hear you. Trust me, I've done the different eating plans over the years, especially during my body building days. Whenever I would prepare to go on vacation, I would eat 6 small meals a day from 6 AM to 6 PM followed by a 16 oz. glass of water. I ate everything from egg whites to cottage cheese and fruit and I was ripped, but as soon as the vacation was over, I was wolfing down burgers, pizzas and hot dogs as if I were a teenager...lol...I don't body build or lift heavy anymore. I'm more cardio-oriented. GOD has always Blessed me with the ability to run. When I turned 40, I was still able to run 3 miles in about 17 and a half minutes. I turn 50 in a couple of months and I bet you I can get close to that feat if I opted to try. Of course, I'm not going to try...lol

    dinner:
    planning on having - grilled chicken over salad with carrots, cucumbers, spinach, romaine, tomatoes, and light balsamic dressing
