This is day #16 and I (should’ve) started my third item on my #100DaysOfHealthy list. For those who haven’t seen my original post on #100DaysOfHealthy, I have a list containing 11 items, and I plan to start each item on a new week and report back the changes I see throughout that week. Once I start an item on the list, I will continue it until the 100 days is over. Hopefully each item will become a lifestyle change if I think it’s worthy.
I’ll start my third item tomorrow, because I honestly just completely forgot and didn’t even realize I should’ve started two days ago!
For this item, I’ll be eating 5 servings of vegetables a day. 1/2 cup of raw vegetables is equal to 1 serving. According to the USDA “In general, 1 cup of raw or cooked vegetables or vegetable juice, or 2 cups of raw leafy greens can be considered as 1 cup from the Vegetable Group,” which means raw leafy greens need to amount to 1 cup to be considered 1 serving.
Cutting out sugar has been and will be the most difficult item on my list, but this item will probably be the hardest to remember throughout the day. I might end up stuffing in 5 servings of veggies before bed on occasion…
Here’s to item #3! It seems like I’m just cruisin’ on through the list–time is flying.
1. Drink the correct amount of water daily
2. Cut out sugar
