Congrats to everyone who participated in this challenge! I know it was particularly more challenging to do because of the holidays.  But you have an amazing opportunity to join the next challenge starting on January 1st 2014! That’s right the next challenge begins tomorrow, New Year’s day!

The goals for this challenge is to eat clean that means no processed foods. Here are the acceptable foods:  Lean meats including chicken, turkey & lean cuts of beef and pork, vegetables, fruit, beans, nuts, water, unsweetened almond milk, whey or soy protein for a breakfast shake or smoothie, coffee & hot tea. You can drink coffee or tea without a sweetener or you can use 1-2 teaspoons of honey as your sweetener. But limit it to once per day. On this challenge I really want to eliminate all artificial sweeteners as studies suggest that they are more harmful to your health as originally suspected. Strive to drink at least 1 gallon of water per day, sleep at least 6-8 hours per day & to exercise at least 3-5 days per week for 45-75 minutes! I know this may sound overwhelming but it has truly been the key to my weight loss success! I’ve lost 63 pounds in 6 months by implementing these processes. Let me know what questions you have! If you would like to take this challenge with me email me info@monicaakerele.com

Let’s go!

I lost 63 pounds in 6 months! You’ve got next!

Amazing Success
Wow these last 6 months have been amazing!  It’s hard to believe that I’ve gotten to this point! The good news is I am not done! I’m on a mission to losing 100 pounds in 1 year or less! With 37 pounds left to go I’m very hopeful that I will be able to step up to the challenge to get it done! My goal for my last challenge that I completed was to work on tightening up and not gaining any weight during the holidays!  So by that standard this was a successful challenge! 

My Secret To Weight Loss
The secret to my weight loss is really simple in theory actually. I eat clean with a diet that consists of only lean meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts, unsweetened almond milk, water,  mean green juice (occasionally) & beans. No processed foods & no added sugars. I pretty much eat nothing out of a box or a fast food drive through.  In addition to that I exercise at least 5 days a week for 45-75 minutes per day depending on my schedule.

2 Essential Elements Of My Success
The other essential keys to my success has been prayer & accountability! After years of trying to lose weight and failing miserably each time I knew I had to do things differently this time.  So I enlisted the help of the one who holds the blueprint of my design…God. The Bible says that “With God nothing is impossible” So I prayed for his help to strengthen me for this weight loss journey and He has in fact done that & has blessed me with a support team consisting of my husband Stephen Akerele & my mentors Brigida Mack, Gregory (at Planet Fitness) & Melanie Scott. As well as accountability partners Shayla Scott, Stacey Joseph & 250+ people taking the challenge with me on Facebook,  My Family, Instagram,  MyFitnessPal and at Christian Faith Assembly Church www.cfaministries.org I couldn’t ask for more & it’s been a blessing to hear all of  the praise reports of weight loss transformations,  healthy habits being formed, health improvements & Higher Self Esteem that has come about through the implementation of this process.

The Next Challenge Begins January 1st
With the new year approaching I thought it would be awesome to start on New Years Day! Not for new year’s resolution sake but because it symbolizes a new start, new possibilities,  & a new year. The theme for this year’s challenge is Getting Fit & Eating Clean in 2014.  Do you want to transform your health picture for the better in 2014? Well I urge you to join me on this next challenge. Believe me you can do this! If I can do it you can too! If you are interested in being a part of this next challenge send me an email at: info@monicaakerele.com

*Stay tuned for news regarding the winner of the last challenge! They will be winning a free photo shoot that will be taken in Charlotte NC by Antidote Creative Group. To learn more about their services check them out at:

Don’t Give Up! Don’t Let Life Derail You!

20131213-193520.jpg

TGIF Everyone! It’s Day 19 of our challenge & I can’t believe how fast this challenge seems to be going! I hope you guys are still getting your exercise in and eating clean. The word for today is Don’t give up! I know it may be a literal challenge to stay consistent with this but I promise you that you will see results if you will just hang in there! I am a witness to that!

There may be times when life may present unique challenges that may try to derail you but you can control your response to it. If you have gone off track it’s time to get back on course toward your goals again. I know some of you are waiting on the new year to come before you start getting serious about losing weight and getting fit again but I would encourage you to finish this year off strong so you will be ahead of the game when the next challenge begins on January 1st 2014.

Don’t give up! You are in this to win this! Much love!

Let’s go!
