Happy Memorial Day Monday Everyone! We have come to the end of another #30DayChallenge and I just want to thank you for your participation. I know many of you have stepped up to the plate during this challenge and I applaud you for your efforts and successes! I’m truly proud of each of you. Since today is a Holiday where there are plenty of cookouts I am going to end the challenge today. So feel free to eat hot dogs and burgers today with all the fixings!!! I have attached a link below that will give you tips on how to eat healthier even at a cookout so check it out and be inspired!
However I do have this huge request whatever you decide to do today take a moment to PRAY at 3pm for our nation, the leadership of our nation, those actively serving in our military and the families of those who have lost loved ones while serving in the military in war and/or in peace time. We are truly blessed as a nation to experience the liberties that many countries outside of the USA fail to enjoy. So let’s be thankful this Memorial Day. Let’s remember and honor those who gave their lives for the freedoms we so richly enjoy. The next 30 day challenge will begin next Monday June 2nd, 2014! Weigh yourself today and let me know how you did on this challenge. Love you bunches!!! Let’s get it!!!

Happy Friday! It’s Day 19 of our 30 Day Challenge!!! How did your week go? I hope it well. Well it’s the weekend and usually that means we may be more tempted to splurge. Believe me I OVERstand! But here are some tips you can use on this picture that will help you position yourself for a healthier weekend!!! Make the weekend great, fun & healthy!!! 🙌
Happy Tuesday!!! It’s Day 16 of our 30 Day Challenge and its Weigh In Day! Yay!!! You are officially more than halfway through the challenge! Well today I weighed myself and I have lost a total of 8.2 pounds in the first 2 weeks of this challenge!!! Now that is EPIC!!! I know the reason is I have stepped up my game in exercising and in sticking to eating healthy snacks in between meals. Snacks, Potato chips, Candy, & Desserts can sabotage your efforts on this challenge so replace those snacks with healthy snacks like baby carrots, almonds, cashews, Chobani greek yogurt, celery, steamed edamame with sea salt, cucumbers or carrots dipped in hummus, fresh or freeze dried fruit etc…
Remember this REGARDLESS of what the scale says don’t allow the number to move you mentally or emotionally. Sometimes it can be a distraction to see a different number on the scale that you hoped would be there and allow it to sway your emotions, which may lead us into feelings of frustration, guilt, anger, or even defeat. But remember this you are not a number on the scale and it cannot measure or define your success. Your success in this challenge is measured by your willingness to improve by implementing healthy lifestyle changes one day at a time. Even a small change in your daily intake of food and/or an increase of exercise is a reason to celebrate. So if no one else has ever told you, or at least told you today, I would like to tell you that you are beautiful or handsome if you are a man (lol) and you are a winner! Stay focused and be encouraged because you CAN do this!
