It’s that time again! barre3 is holding a Fall Challenge from Oct. 14 – Nov. 10, with aspects similar to their other challenges, 28 to Great and 7 Day Body Blast. This particular challenge focuses on attending class five times per week and eating whole foods.
Those joining in receive a meal plan. The recipes are delicious and include foods I’ve never really eaten before, including beets and tahini. My weekdays tend to fill-up quickly so I did a lot of food prep on Sunday night, which included chopping all of my vegetables so I could easily cook with them during the week. I’ve also made the following evening’s dinner the night before.
I’ve had a lot of fun (maybe too much) with my meals so far:
As with the other challenges, I plan to make this my own. I’ll still be drinking my coffee and having the occasional glass of wine/beer over the weekend. However, I know that by committing myself to the challenge, including the nutrition philosophy most days and five workouts per week, I’ll be better off than I would otherwise! I’ll be more mindful in stopping at one glass, ordering healthier when I’m out and scheduling classes in advance.
This challenge couldn’t have come at a better time for me. I’ve fallen off the whole food train a bit over the past few months and hope to jump right back on it! I’ll keep you updated on my journey throughout the next month.
