Challenge Week 10 - Fit Mommy Friday - The End!
Did I make my goal? No. Actually I kind of gave up. After Thanksgiving it seems that things went way down hill (and fast) so I stopped even trying to force myself to stick to my goals.
I was able to do some things, like drinking water more and keeping my soda intake to less then 2 per day. The one thing that I messed up on the most is the carbs. We just haven't had the money to eat mainly veggies. I find it annoying that our country is in such a state of bad nutrition and those of us trying to be healthy can't because fresh fruits and veggies cost so much more then boxed stuff.
However, I have already prepared myself to start on a new journey. Beginning the first full week of January (the 10th, I think) I will be starting this again. I want to look better by my birthday which is around the middle of March. My father has been losing weight and wants to his his goal weight by August of this year. He's already lost 40 pounds since August and I am so proud of him.
I know that our families (mine and Stephen's) are in a desperate need of change and making a lifestyle shift. One that is full of activity, energy and healthy eating. I'm hoping that my family can help be the catalyst for the change.
Congratulations to all the ladies who made their goal! I'm proud of you and what you have accomplished. I hope you check in on me and see how I'm doing throughout the next few months of the new year.
