Day 4……

Lunch: 1 cup of rice cooked with soy sauce.
Dinner: PB&J sandwich with pasta shells covered in ragu- sweet tomato basil.

I ended my last blog posting talking about how my diet would affect my workouts. Friday and Saturday I did strength training workouts. I knew the workouts would be difficult, but I had no idea they would be so bad. I had to lower the amount of weight I was able to lift and I did few repetitions. I ended up cutting my workouts short because I was so fatigued. I actually came home and took an hour nap after each workout.

For those of you who think there are solutions or loops holes to this challenge let me just say that the following senarios won’t work.

#1.) Nobody can buy me food or beverages. For those of you who say “well I’ve bought a beer or a burger for someone living on food stamps before” That is great, but that is considered cheating in my book since those people eat this way on a daily basis and I am doing it for a week.

#2.) You can’t give me money and say “now you have a bigger budget” – still cheating.

#3.) No I can’t sit down outside of a wal-mart with a cup and ask for donations. – still cheating.

#4.) Steal food. – absolutely not an option.
