Day 7 of my streak..thanks for the inspiration Pixie!!

Sunday, August 19, 2012

Thanks to my spark friend Pixie and encouragement from another special friend, I have started and maintained my exercise and eating right streak for one full week. Pixie has been on a streak for 172 days and has done awesome! She motivated me to start my own streak and while mine has only been 7 days, you have to start somewhere :-)

I have lost 30 lbs, but have basically maintained a weight at 30 lbs above my goal for the past couple of years. I have 30 more lbs I want to get off, but I am not going to focus on the numbers. I'm just going to eat right, try new recipes and exercise by doing something everyday. I started back at my gym last week and have worked on strength training and cardio. I find myself parking far away from my destination and running up and down the steps more. Every little bit of extra really does add up. I also enjoy walking in the evenings.

I found a recipe in this months Clean Eating magazine called Spicy Raspberry Chicken. I am making that this evening and will post pics and how it was later tonight.

I will take before pics tonight and post those tonight or tomorrow. I am ready to go!

    WooHoo Carla! I'm so glad you're streaking! Taking it one day at a time is the best way to go. I love how active you are with parking further away, going to the gym....and that you are not going to focus on the numbers! I look forward to seeing your pictures. I am rooting for you all the way!

Oh, before I forget...we have a "Days in a Row" thread on the Ruby team, join us if you'd like. We just update how many days our streak is, and we encourage each other to keep going or start over as needed!
