Courtney's Summer Challenge: Week 2

A veggie per meal is Courtney's challenge to you.

Courtney's Summer Challenge takes on week 2! Your challenge this week: Eat a vegetable with each meal.

Courtney wants to see you incorporate one vegetable into each of your meals this week. Just one teensy, weensy, harmless little vegetable. She recognizes that this may not be easy for some, but the rewards are plentiful for all. Vegetables offer more satiety, meaning you'll feel fuller for longer and less likely to make a hungry dash to the snacks.

Week 2 Prize: DIR T-Shirt and Free Wholly Guacamole

Participate in the challenge by posting below. It could be your progress, success, hurdles, or even encouragement for other participants. We'll draw one winner to receive a shirt and some tasty guac, announced week 3.

I LOVE your babystep approach!!! It is sooo feasible to do and I love it. I will be participating. I stumbled a little on the walking last week, but only a couple of days.

The goal this week - Make this week better than last week.

Week one was a goal not met but a victory nonetheless. I have been struggling to get moving at all, even walking. I am an all or nothing kind of girl who began the year training for a half marathon then when over time at work took over many of my free hours for several months I stopped working out altogether. So I have gone 4 months being regretfully inactive. I did however walk twice last week. 2 is more than zero but not what I had hoped I would do. I now know I need to plan more and to make that a priority.

One thing I did today to be prepared was to buy two additional sets of workout clothes. Now I am prepared to workout any day and don't have to stress about not having anything in the closet I can wear to work out in.

As for veggies. I saw this new challenge after I had my breakfast.....no veggies there but at lunch I had avocado and tomato on my sandwich. OK, not necessarily veggies, but definitely pseudo veggies. I got my grilled cheese avocado sandwich at the library from the natural foods co-op that has a restaurant there, this after checking out one of Bob Harper's inside out DVDs and one of Jillian Michaels' as well.

Next I tackle veggies for dinner.....I think I need to hit up the grocery store.

I can't wait for the challenge this week! I love to try new ways of cooking things so this will excite my tastebuds this week! One of my favorite new ways of incorporating veggies into my meals is by adding zucchini to my ground turkey meat when I make homemade turkey burgers. It is sooo good! Thanks Courtney!

I've already had veggies with both of my meals today. One more meal to go for the day and I will have succeeded! :-) It is definitely hard to do though.

Looking forward to this week Courtney! I am eating a salad for lunch while I watched the video! I love veggies and usually have them with every lunch/dinner! Looking forward to trying your breakfast idea! Have a great week! :)
