This is silly

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Its been forever since I made a blog post and my motivation to do so right now is because I want the three points. I'm only 12 points away from my next level. Isnt that silly?!

Back at it

Monday, June 16, 2014

My family and I went on vacation last week and although I didn't do as well as I'd hoped, I didn't do as poorly as I might have.

This past Saturday I started another 100 day streak. Today is day 3. My goal is the same: exercise 10 minutes per day for 100. I also added stay away from sweets. I have learned that if I even have a little taste of something I'm bound to eat it all!

My sister is joining me on this new streak. We live across the country from each other but we check in daily via text message. It is nice to have a partner. emoticon

So there you have it, I am back at it. I am feeling so much better from the first streak that I knew I had to do another one. I don't want to lose my momentum. It was easy to do on vacation.

How are you doing on the 100 day challenge? I am about on Day 74 of NO Sweets and am so proud of myself as I have never even licked a finger and I do lots of baking, cooking, even chocolate dipping. Mine ends just days before we celebrate our 60th Wedding Anniversary, so I will take brief hiatus and return to another 100 days. Let me know how you are doing and we can support each other.

Day 100--How did I do?

Tuesday, June 03, 2014

Day 100!!!! I made it. I am so psyched! To celebrate I walked a 5k to see if I had shaved any time off of my time when I did the Color Me Rad 5k in April. I managed to shave over 5 minutes off my time!

So how did I do? Pretty well I think. Although the scale and I have been fighting a rigorous battle over the last 100 days, I did manage to lose 7.5 lbs.

The thing I was most surprised was the number of inches I lost. I was negligent and didn't do my measurements back on day 1 but I did take them sometime around the beginning of April. I took them again on May 4 and then again today. In total I lost 6". Not bad if you ask me!!

I know that there are many that would have and have had a more dramatic weight loss and inches loss than mine, but I am proud of what I did. I am proud of what I have accomplished. I proved to myself that I can do hard things.

Now to reward myself with that iPod that I've been eyeing!

Today is day 93 of my 100 day exercise goal. One more week.

Today the scale moved down after two months. I am now at the weight I was at the beginning of those two months. Finally!
