Some people like to write it down and keep track of their progress. If you're one of those people, this log is for you. First, make a contract with yourself. Then log your daily food, mood, workout and stress levels to keep track of how it's going! Looking back at the 21 Day Challenge after completion will be a nice snapshot of your journey, and motivation to keep going.

1. Take the Pledge! Print out and Sign: "My 21 Day Plant-Based Diet Contract"

Here is one way to be successful: Make a pledge with yourself that you will do your best, to invest in yourself, in your health and in your future, by choosing to follow 21 Days of Plant-Based Eating.

Vow to yourself you will do your best. Read it out loud to be accountable to the most important person in the room: You. 

This is your pact with your body and mind to do something special and commit to, right here and now:

I, _______ __________, promise to myself, that I will try to eat a mostly whole-food, plant-based diet for the next 21 days. 

I am doing this for my personal health, my wellbeing, and my future self, as well as to benefit the planet and reduce the impact of my food choices on climate change, and for the ethical treatment of animals. 

I want to be the best version of myself, as well as follow through on my value system, to have the integrity of my decisions, in my food choices and meal planning, and to make the healthiest choices I can every day, for me, the planet and animals. 

This is my word to myself, and I will follow through from this moment forward, the best I can, for 21 days

Signed: __________________      Date _______

Print this out and put it where you can see it every morning like on your bathroom mirror,  your fridge or tucked into your agenda. Then Take the 21 Day Plant-Based Calendar from The Beet and print that out three times or every week that you want to track your progress and get closer to feeling amazing.
