This is awseome!

Last week, my teen was told by his wrestling coach to start eating healthy for wrestling season. So grocery shopping was a completely different experience this week. I bought fruit and yogurt and potatoes. That’s not abnormal. But I did NOT buy junky snacks or pasta or processed side dishes.

I think I have already lost weight this week! Score!!

Healthy Eating….

This is another part of life I find challenging… eating healthy.  Boy oh boy, they don’t make it easy.  There is junk food everywhere.  I mean if the veding machines had yummy oranges in them and apples and bananas and raspberries and the like, I’d be all over that.  But noooo , the vending machines have snickers and heath bars and cheetos!  Come on!  How can I compete with that?!

So, I try to remember to leave my money at home.  It’s best that way.

Another great challenge….

The biggest hurdle of them all….  losing weight.  Some can’t do it without support.  Some can do it by, you know, skipping lunch.  LOL (I used to be able to do that).

Some days it’s a challenge just to…..

Finish that statement.  Some days it’s a challenge just to….

… get out of bed in the morning.
… empty the dishwasher and NOT just stack all the dishes in the dish dryer.  🙂
… vacuum the carpet for the umpteenth time knowing I’ll just have to do it again tomorrow.
…  remember what day it is!
… go to the gym.
… walk the dogs.

Most of all, I need to walk the dogs.  They need it and I need it and I always feel better when I do it.  But I just can’t get myself to do it.

What is most challenging for you?

Ongoing Challenges!

Once in a while we see a good challenge that has a variable ending point.  In this case, it all depends on the members.  How many days in a row can you exercise?  This challenge was started last week. As we saw the activity, well people drop out.  They have to.  They miss a day for whatever reason. 

Ok, so you did.  Try again, get your friends to join.  We have set up the same challenge several times starting every Monday.  Egg your friends on!  Get moving!
