Clean Eating - Day 1 and counting...

4 years ago

So today is day 1 of clean eating for this couple!  My husband and I have made the decision, for good, to eat clean and change our way of looking at food.  Will it be easy?  Well, for us, not so much.  We are horrible enablers of one another when it comes to food!  We'll be really good for a couple of days then one of us mentions a craving, we're going to get it for the other and join right in. 

Over the years, we have each gained a good amount of excess weight and have a good bit to lose.  But we are not eating clean just to lose weight...we both want to feel better!  I would like to get my 8 hours of sleep, as I always do, but actually feel wel rested and energized during the day!  We want to have energy to workout, go for walks with our dogs and just get out of this couch potato rut. 

So, as we get started (and we've been great for the 2 hours we've been awake so far!!), please wish us luck and share any experience you've had with clean eating as well as advice.  We need all we can get!
