Day 4 and 5 Food Log (Late Entry! Whoops!)

Hi Everyone,

The last two days have been busy, so this is a late entry for my food log/no sweets challenge. 

Thursday was the 4th of July, and yesterday we celebrated my nephew’s birthday. Today I am excited to really get back on track with some clean eating. This is my Thursday and Friday food log. 

I am starting to get a lot of comments that I eat like a normal person. 🙂 I am definitely a normal person. I enjoy fruits, and vegetables, but I also don’t believe in cutting out necessary nutrients or food groups. I am active and athletic and I need to fuel my body. I am not a perfect eater, but I try to select primarily healthy foods. 

The past three days I have been offered a plethora of desserts, and I turned them all down (even Jesse’s grandmother’s homemade fudge). I am actually enjoying this no sweets challenge because I feel physically better. 

Today is Saturday, and I am excited to eat all foods that I make at home. Plus I am planning an awesome workout! With two birthday parties, and one holiday over the past three days I don’t feel like my choices have been as “clean” as normal, but these events are part of life.

    Hi Melissa, I have seen you have many videos in Youtube, but in different channels, how many channels are yours?

  2. I’ve been hearing that my penchant for fruits (which grow in my backyard – mangoes, carambola, guavas) are notoriously high in sugar and therefore not good for weight loss. I think they’re the perfect alternative to a sweet-toth junkie like me! What say you?
