Doing a 21 Day Challenge is a great way to develop a new habit. It’s been said that it takes about three weeks of consistency to create a potentially lasting pattern for good health.
I say potentially because it also takes dedication and discipline to keep the momentum moving forward. Just because a challenge ends doesn’t mean it’s time to stop……I say with my guilty hand raised high.
Losing weight is also a goal of mine, but I want to focus on building my fitness level, and less on what the scale has to say. I'm confident that following my clean vegan diet plan plus the walking will naturally shed some pounds.
What are your goals during and/or after the 21 Days? (post in the comments section at the bottom of this page)
The vegan diet I prefer is high in carbohydrates and low in fat. This way of eating promises higher energy essential for working out to burn calories and lose weight. With the 5k a day challenge, the body will become a fat burning machine.
Avocados and young coconuts add healthy fat to a vegan diet (in moderation)
I also include rice maybe once or twice a week. It seems to digest well, but it may not be for everybody, so give it a try and decide for yourself.
**Remember to Drink Water. Healthy Hydration is important for health, especially if you are adding or increasing exercise**
With that advice, I confess that for the past month I have been eating too much junk food vegan snacks that will never help with weight loss. These snacks are processed and often high in fat, and will inhibit the healing of the body.
Doing challenges helps me stay focused on a goal while trying to find a balance for all aspects of healthy living. Even though I have had my ups and downs with my plan, I always have hope. When we stop trying is when we have truly failed.
So join me for the 5K A Day Walking - 21 Day Challenge where we can support and inspire each other.
