Challenge runs FRIDAY - WEDNESDAY
Each serving of freggie consumed 1 point (no maximum)
Each color you incorporate into your day 1 point (maximum possible 5/day, 1 ea color)
For each day you get a Full Rainbow you get 1 bonus point!
Points are awarded for FULL servings of a freggie only... bites of something won't get you one!
Servings are figured as the following:
1 medium piece of fruit
1/2 cup fruit (raw, canned, or frozen)
1/2 cup cooked vegetables (canned or frozen)
1 cup raw vegetables
1/4 cup dried fruit
4-6 oz. of 100% juice (serving size depends on the type of juice)
V-8 juices (both veggie and fruit) have a combination of freggies that create 1 serving, but not a full serving of each fruit/veggie ingredient listed! A 4-6oz serving would be considered one serving and represent 1 color (you choose which) and 1 fruit/veggie.

This morning I posed a question to the Pixies after an exciting first week of BLC....
What's one thing you noticed from last week that you plan to work harder at for the coming?
Seems like a simple enough question right? Then why do *I* find it really hard to answer? Because I'm an over thinker by nature...half my problem I'm certain! So many thoughts have crept up, but I keep saying "Nope, that's not a good one...maybe this one is better to start with because it will help me achieve XYZ and I can build from there"
What I need to know first is....Exactly where is THERE? It use to be a number staring back at me, kinda sorta still is...I'll always be a numbers girl, but it REALLY is much bigger than that!
I have this vision of what *I* see myself as when I reach THERE! The scale is showing me 130ish, but the visual that keeps moving to the forefront is my glance in the mirror! Not just how I look , but also how I feel!
Here's my reflection: (full length mirror of course LOL)
There's a 5'6" girl that is at a healthy weight for her height and body type with definition! She's wearing a huge smile, twirling in front of the mirror, standing tall,and proud of her accomplishments! She looks to her reflection and says "You're finally there" and decides she is determined to never sell herself short again, because the person staring back is exactly who she chooses to be for HER... not anyone else!!
I know how to get there...with determination, using that visual as the primary focus, just as I did when this journey started! I was not comfortable then and can't allow myself to be comfortable now because I am NOT!
The answer to the question is now very clear....as I SEE that girl, she will not be all that she desires without making the commitment to Strength Training! Sure...she'll be happy with the number, she'll be smiling, she'll be proud, but not nearly as proud as she would have been had she dug a little deeper to get that definition... and not feel like she still sold herself a little short!
I have the tools, I have the knowledge, I have the desire, I have the motivation, I have the support, I AM determined, and it starts NOW!!
