"She" was right. The picture thing did not go over well. I have not received any post pictures from the NoOodlists who entered into the NoOodle diet contest. If you recall back on January 1st when I first started my blog and this contest I asked everyone to send in pre-diet pictures of their backsides. We were going on the NoOodle diet together, yippie! We set out to improve our health and wellness for our new years resolution. We had 11 participants including me. I have asked several times via our face book to have those who entered the diet contest to send in their post- diet photos after March 31st, I have not gotten any, not one. boo hoo! I guess it is not the first diet contest or new years resolution to be a bust, right?
As you may know I started the NoOodle diet contest so that I would be accountable to myself and get my health and wellness back by eating clean and exercising daily. Did I accomplish my goals? Have made a difference in my health & wellness in the past three months?
I sure have! Today I eat a lot healthier than I have been eating in my past. I have not had any bread ( with the exception of one slice of pumpernickel) in three months. I have not had anything sweet made with gluten in 2014, yeah! Have I had some chocolate, yes, but it was dark chocolate (-:. I am feeling great & it is a constant work in progress, a lifestyle change.
Today I think about everything that goes into your month before it goes into my mouth. Where it's origin comes from? Is it organic or is it genetically modified? Is it grass fed? It is plant based? What is the carb/sugar-protien/fiber ratio of the foods I am eating?
I have learned a lot about nutrition over the last few months and I have cooked and eaten some really great foods so I am not missing my past a bit. More and More research and evidence everyday that we really are what we eat.
