I’m so excited to be starting a 6 week health and fitness challenge with a great group of lady nerds.
Here’s what the challenge entails for me:
30 minutes non-stop exercise every day.
Drinking 3L of water every day.
Eating 1700, or less, calories every day.
Eating, at least, 3 veggie servings every day.
Giving up all diet soda for 6 weeks (in, yet, another attempt to give it up once and for all)
Writing a little bit every day, even if it’s just a private journal entry.
Attempting 8 hours uninterrupted sleep (no screens).
I went through that time recently when I felt really bloated and was super uncomfortable in my body. But, I’ve come through the other side of it and, when I see my reflection, am blown away by the changes I see in my body. I am enouraged and proud of myself for remaining mindful and being able to talk myself through the struggle without letting it completely derail me.
But, this challenge is coming at a perfect time because I was feeling my momentum waning. The women in my group are so encouraging and inspirational that it’s just the boost I need to propel me forward.
I missed my May 30 goal of 260, but I’m aiming to be there by the end of next week.
I really want to do better at writing as well. My writing is becoming boring. I’m bored writing it. I know the reason for this is that things have been really busy and stressful in my life and I haven’t allowed myself the space and time I need in order to be more creative.
But…that might be changing.
Watch this space.
