A new journey...The Awesome April Azalea Challenge!

Sunday, November 25, 2012

Acorns have been collected and the winter will be a path to the glorious day that I reach my goal.

I have chosen April! For that month, many years ago, I reached another weight loss goal.
That journey began at 184 pounds and ended with 117!

Here is a photo taken of me, celebrating, in the beautiful Azalea Gardens, that I now volunteer in!

I still remember that complete dedication and the feeling I had, when I reached my goal.

I do this journey, alone, but would like for each of you, to consider a fun challenge of your own and share it with me.

Here is my plan....

Lift weights, every other day and really push myself. emoticon

Cardio, three times per week. emoticon

Scoliosis exercise, every day. emoticon

More yoga. emoticon

More walking. emoticon

A salad every day. This has proven in the past to help. emoticon

Drink my water. emoticon

Track, track and track! emoticon

Read motivational things, every day. emoticon

Pamper myself...Facials, lotion, downtime. emoticon

This one may not be your cup of tea, but I really find that I need to do this. Weigh myself, every morning. emoticon

I plan on having my picture taken, in the Azaleas, this April at my goal weight! emoticon

I am excited and ready to roll! emoticon

    Sounds like fun I am up for it. I had set a goal of getting down to 160 my Feb. I am 175 now. If I really work on it I can be there by April.

    Fantastic that you have laid it out on "paper" ~ I know you can do it and I will support you any way I can. I make a salad every night for my lunch the next day. I can't get in bed without my salad made. You got this!!
