Wow...haven't written a blog for WAY too long! I miss my SP time but Life has been busy in a VERY positive way! I just need to spark a bit more...have to schedule sparktime I think. :)
On The 9th of April I started a "Stripped In 6 Weeks" Challenge through a New Zealand Company called EggCel (www.eggcel.co.nz) who sell pasteurized liquid egg whites...and I started incorporating them into my daily diet before the contest...and LOVE THEM!!! So much better than all the egg separating and tossing the yolks and because they are pasteurized, you can just drink 'em! Add them to smoothies, etc as a protein base and they don't taste or smell like anything! I am hooked.
The first week on the Challenge - you have to do the whole before picture trying to look as terrible as you can while holding a newspaper to prove the date. The only different thing I did the first week was add EggCel to my day instead of protein powder and extra chicken....etc. I lost 7.2 lbs / 3.26 kgs the first week and broke through the plateau that I have been sitting at!!! How exciting and how cool! :)
Week 2 had several life challenges that came up and clutzy me fell down a big curb in Kaikoura New Zealand while walking (attempting to walk LOL) in town on our way to the baby seals and waterfall! Yup...just call me grace! :) So ended up in pain and had to take some meds which sucks and didn't eat enough...so of course...that effects the scale...and I lost 1 lb / .50 kgs this past week! Saying that..i feel so much better since using Eggcel and since I struggle to eat enough food sometimes, the smoothies make it so easy...there's one that taste like Chai that I love! :)
So week three approaching today and I have popped my BodyBugg on again since breaking my ankle in November...need to move more this week and this always helps motivate me :)
I forgot to mention that the winner of the challenge gets an all expense trip for 2 to Samoa and that is my motivation...me and my man in Samoa at a resort. We haven't went anywhere together since I moved her 5 1/2 years ago! It would be an amazing gift/celebration/achievement..
.And doing something I love doing - eating healthy and eating clean!
My healthy eating invention seems to possibly have an investor :) YEA! and my new Stampin' Up business and IonWays business are also growing...looking forward to my 40th Birthday on June 3rd (I'll be flying back from Aussie that day) and skydiving before the month (june) is over! I'll be off my blood thinners at the end of May and can get back to Karate, Derby, Tattoos, and life my way! :) WHOO HOO!
Have a great week!
