Today is the start of day 3 of my 30 day challenge, and this is going to be harder than I thought it would be. My first day of the challenge I did great. I didn't even think about eating a piece of candy or anything else that was unhealthy. But yesterday and today is a different story. Yesterday I had a basketball game, and after the end of the game my parents always take me to get something to eat. My parents decided to go to Arby's. Arby's is one of my favorite places to eat, because I always get jalapeno bites with my meal. Last night I had to fight the urge to order them! So I ordered a turkey wrap, and surprisingly it was very tasty. Later when my parents were dropping me off, my mom asked me "the next time we come up you want me to bring you some brownies?" This was so hard for me to say no. My mom was like what is wrong with you! Then I had to tell her what I was doing, and why I was doing it. This morning my math teacher is always bringing in treats for us, and today he happens to bring in one of my favorite candies of all time, Laffy Taffy. I was heartbroken when i had to give them to another classmate, because I could not eat them. This is only day three of my challenge, and I still have a long way to go!!! How will I be able to make it through??

Time to Begin My 30 Day Challenge

This blog was created for my English 104 class. I am assigned to write and immersion essay, and to share what I am doing for 30 days. Throughout this blog I will be sharing with you my experience on trying to give up junk food and other unhealthy foods throughout 30 days. My favorite food is candy and junk food, so giving it up will be a challenge for me. Since this is going to be a tough goal for me to achieve without cheating, I decided to give myself one free day out of the week. On this day I am not going to just pig out, but simply eat something something that is unhealthy encase something comes up: such as travel and having to stop at a fast food restaurant. My goal with this project is to see the outcomes it has on my body; how I feel and how I look at the deadline. I am hoping that I will be able to get through the 30 days without any problem. Join me for the experience!
