Do I get credit even if I'm a day late? huh? huh? I haven't been a model student, and I admit to slowing down mid-week, but look! I'm still standing!
It was sooo worthwhile to participate in this one-week challenge, because I did lose some poundage and it did keep me motivated. It was fun and rewarding.
I was really bad about the exercises, but I have a plethora of really good excuses: it was raining, it was muddy, I was tired, I didn't sleep well, I was really busy, the dog ate my homework.
I did read the challenge every day and fill in my accomplishments, and I did track every bite. And I did get results! Four pounds, folks!
One of the side effects was the vegetable thing. I don't care for many vegetables, so eating a new one on Day Monday made me realize how few veggies I ate. I decided I should expand my horizons, and chose red peppers as my own personal challenge. I had some (very little) red pepper in my dinner every day to see if I could learn to like it. I wouldn't cross the street for it, but now I can tolerate it. Wonder what I'll choose for next week?
And even more interesting, I am looking forward to next week's challenge.
