Cut the Crap Plan Ahead

Hello Divas!  How did the C-R-A-P cutting go this weekend?

CRAP stands for…Caffeine, Refined Sugar, Alcohol and Processed Foods.  Want to know more about our challenge?  Go HERE.

 Ok so, what IS on the menu?

 Things prepared by human hands NOT a machine!…Whole grains!…..Fruits!…….Veggies!….Lean cuts of meat!

Your challenge this week is to PLAN what you are going to eat before you get hungry. GO TO THE STORE and buy veggies, lean meats, and fruits!  Eating whole foods is not that hard when things are ready when you are ready to eat.  Things get tricky when you are hungry and all the healthy stuff is uncooked, frozen, or simply unavailable.

 Some of you asked me if you would receive a meal plan telling you what to eat.  The answer to that is a resounding NO! We are taking this challenge to get more healthy– not to commit to a fad diet.  You know what you like and what you will realistically eat more than anyone else.  So YOU have to make your food choices.

 Remember, you don’t plan to fail–you FAIL TO PLAN!

I found an excellent article on how to make any recipe “clean” or without the CRAP!  Go here.

 I know some of you may feel like there is NO WAY you can be successful with this whole cutting the CRAP thing.  But I would like to ask you to consider a term I learned from Lysa TerKeurst, Imperfect Progress:  slow steps of change wrapped in grace.  One day at a time Divas!

When you feel challenged remember when we are weak, HE is strong!

“But He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)



  1. Whew! This weekend was a challenge, I had two birthday parties one was my daughter’s FIRST birthday! While I did great resisting temptation at my friends bday having all that food in my house was too hard to resist. So my cheat meal was really grazing from 1 pm-4 pm on Sunday. But I did “gift” all the leftover food and cake, cupcakes, cookies, and cake balls. I am back on track today and feeling good. Ready to dance off those treats tonight on the Wii and on Wed back in class!!
