Here I am back at it, friends! We have had our last little one and I am ready to kick some butt and get myself moving and shaking to shed this weight, strengthen my body, and create a healthy example for my family.
Super excited to be on Team Tiger Monarchs for the Summer 5% Challenge!
I promise myself and my teammates to stick it through no matter what life throws at me in the next eight weeks(hello lake vacation I'm looking at you)and to help cheer everyone on in their own journeys.
I deserve the time, effort, attention and love this will take.
My goal is to get to onederland and reach 180 by the time the year is done. Its a lofty goal but it is attainable! Reach for the stars:)
I will move daily and record it here
My fitbit, zumba on the wii, walking, running with baby in the jogging stoller, and strength training with the hubby are my chosen exercises.
I am motivated by results, so I will measure myself every two to four weeks.
I will eat cleaner, following meal plans and planning ahead by shopping for recipes, on a weekly basis.
I will take a cooler with me when I go to town for groceries so I am not tempted by processed junk food. If all else fails, I will buy the salad with protein!

    "If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination.
    The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying. "Here comes number seventy-one!"

    Thanksgiving Gratitude:
    In the week before Thanksgiving Mary-Jo asked her class of 9 year-olds to write a paragraph entitled:
    'What I am most thankful for on Thanksgiving Day'.

    "I was going to serve sweet potatoes with Thanksgiving dinner, but I sat on them.
    "So what are you serving now?"
    "Squash."

    You know that just before the first Thanksgiving there was one wise old Native American woman saying, "Don't feed them. If you feed them, they'll never leave."

    I’m on the Light Diet. I eat by daylight, I eat by moonlight, and sometimes I even eat by refrigerator light.

    Hope to hear from you again soon, April. Enjoy your Saturday!
