Challenge Complete

Today I wrapped up my 21 day Beach Body challenge. I am thrilled to have lost 3.1 pounds and a total of 6 inches (including 1.5 from my waist!). I know it doesn't seem like a lot but I lost weight 3 weeks in a row. For the last year at least I have been losing and gaining the same 5 pounds. Down one week and up the next. As far as I can see I have won the challenge! I can't wait to see what my prize is!

Hubby still says he wants to join me in my workouts so we are going to try again tomorrow. I`m sure he will tell me he is too tired again! It`s weird - something in my mind has changed, I never wanted to workout in front of anyone before but now if he doesn't want to join me I just workout while he sits on the couch. This is the switch I have been waiting for. I am not hiding anymore. I am honest about what I am doing with anyone who wants to know. Don't get me wrong I am not singing it from the roof tops but I am not lying about it of anyone asks me. I am excited about the changes I am making.

One big change has been NO McDonalds. I haven't had McDonalds since November 9. This is a big deal for me. We had started eating there at least once a week and that didn't count the times I went secretly at lunch and ate by myself in the parking lot. I have said I will stop for all of November. I am not sure I want to go back. My daughter has been asking to go lately. My hubby has been really supportive and got her off the subject and on to something else. I'd like to see how long I can go. I am only a few days away from 1 year without pop (soda)! Again a HUGE change in my life. I still have an Iced Tea (sweetened) on occasion. It has become daily but I have managed to cut that way back as well. I am never going to be the person who makes drastic changes - I don't want to be at Christmas Dinner eating salad. I want to enjoy my life and my food by practicing moderation.

Well I think I have rambled on long enough - have a great night!
