Good to be back!

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 ...

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!

Hi there!

It's great that we are now in our breakaway groups for our 5% challenge! I'm here to cheer you on every step of the way as your breakaway leader.

I know we can meet our 5% challenge with lots of exercise and good eating choices. I've found a pretty neat tool of having about 4 oz of unsweetened cranberry juice each morning with the juice of a lemon and a teaspoon full of Braggs apple cider vinegar. Tastes a little weird but it does get that fat burning and helps with appetite. Just passing it onto you hoping it helps!

Let's DO this! emoticon emoticon

Hugs...Bobbi Anne
