Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes it meaningful. Joshua J. Marine
20 days later, here we are. What a challenge? It was brutal in a way but interesting, to say the least. What I found about this challenge was how discipline you must be. To be honest, I didn’t miss the meat as much as I did when it comes to seafood lol.
I’ve always known that whatever I put my mind into its achievable, but I didn’t know how much perseverance that was needed. Look I did at 1st for fun, and I was curious to know if I could be okay without eating meat. It was a success; I had a moment when I wanted to have chicken or a beef patty actually, but I stop myself in time.
Let me say this I need to be motivated to do anything. I had a motivation to made it through the 20 days’ challenge. I don’t know if it’s because a lot of people were like can you do it? Or is because I had people supporting me. But one thing I knew for sure I was not looking to letting myself down. One day I was hungry, I was not feeling like cooking. So, I ordered Mexican food, one of the dish had shrimps. I felt so guilty; I gave it to my friend who was there. I was like “Nah I am good. Definitely, will stick with my vegetarian tacos (which were delicious btw).”
I don’t know if you watched my Facebook live when I was giving a quick update on how everything was going, but I brought up of how my faith was a huge part of me getting through this challenge. What was interesting was how God was testing me in another area of my life, it was mind-blowing. The man was shaking up everything in my life. Some of the changes I wasn’t expecting but I am happy HE challenged me. I am glad the way it’s turning out to be
20 days’ challenge was an eye- opening, a great experience. I am so proud of myself for not giving up on the end goal, but what was great about it the whole journey. I think my addiction to peach Snapple tea has gotten a lot better. Water have become my best friend. Eating healthy is not such a bad thing when you think about it. I didn’t do it to lose weight, but I did (A girl can’t complain lol it was a nice bonus). To tell you the truth it was further from my mind, but one of my friends said that would happen, but I didn’t believe her. I lost 16 lbs(with the challenge), in total 20 since I have been changing the way I eat. 40 lbs are how much I want to lose. I urge you guys to challenge yourself to be better in every way possible. Don’t just say I can’t do it without trying.
Right now, I am thinking of new ways to challenge myself. If you have any idea of new challenges let me know. I saw that my cousins the Yaya_s(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBTIzpSsmVg&t=55s )are doing a 20 days’ workout challenge and I was thinking about doing it. But I doubt I’ll make It (You see what I just did there. That’s what you called the devil making you doubt yourself. REMEMBER when he does to quickly remind him that GOD said you are better than that.)
