Good travel day. No plastic bottles. No artificial sweeteners.

Just a couple of days till the 21-Day real food habit challenge starts for me.

Oct 1-21st, kicking the protein bar and protein shake habit.

1 small setback today - I gave in to a plastic water bottle.

Here's why I gave in... because my trip to Rio taught me that I'll never be able to fully give up plastic water bottles.

However, I'm doing my very best to minimize the use of plastic bottles.

On the bright side
- no artificial sweeteners
- no protein shakes
- and the big one... no protein bars... despite being surrounded with FREE quest bars and Bulletproof bars all day long yesterday at a Joe Polish seminar

They were being given out like tiny chocolate bars on Halloween.

Thank goodness for steak!

Good ol' rib eye dinners with Bedros and Diana Keuilian make it easy to avoid protein bars.

And we all supported one another in avoiding diet cokes.

Another plastic water bottle today, but other than that, no sweeteners or protein supplements.

Flying back to Toronto today.

100% back on track tomorrow.

Whew!

I almost blew it again.

I looked for every excuse to have a Monster energy drink with aspartame today... I told myself I was tired, that i deserved a treat, that I wanted to get pumped for my workout...

BUT...

I held out because of YOU.

Thanks for the accountability!!!

What are you replacing your protein with? You don't do dairy, right? Just curious.

Quick update... Staying on track. Much easier when I'm at home and not on airplanes. That'll be tested again on Thursday with a flight to Denver followed with a day of filming.

Then I have an interesting weekend at a seminar, speaking on Sunday morning, and then flying to Orlando the week after for more filming and another seminar (this one is for fitness).

After that it's a couple of days of coaching with Isabel in Charleston, and then I fly over to San Francisco for another seminar. I'll finally get back to Denver on the 28th.

Today is one of those days where you say to yourself, "Darn it, I deserve a treat." It's full of travel, delays, more work than usual, and discipline.

But a promise made is a promise kept, right?

And you've kept your promise and have been great accountability to me, so I have to do my part and do the work and stay strong.

Thanks for being there!

And just remember, we're there for YOU too.

Stay strong!

Good week. Good planning. Great prep.

Got some boxed waters so there won't be any plastic bottles.

No chance of me giving in to Coke Zero or Quest bars.

Easier every day.

Today was a good day... a complete Diet Purity Day. No stevia, no caffeine, just real food. Might be the same tomorrow, too. It's a travel day from San Fran back to Denver... and I don't have any stevia-containing products with me, so I should be set.
