My new life.

I’m starting a new life! I know that sounds drastic, but it’s true. I’m determined to lose weight and to get healthy. I’m tired of taking multiple (4) shots a day and not being able to move without hurting. SO I’m doing something about it. Here is my plan:

I’m exercising. I’ve committed myself to do this for a year and I’ve signed up at “Give it 100”, but I’ve changed it to 365 days. I’m doing some kind of exercise everyday. Some days are very active and some days are a little less, but I’m doing something everyday.

I’ve also decided to do some “little” things to help me along. I’m taking the stairs instead of the elevator. I’m parking at the far end of parking lots and walking. I know these seem like silly things, but it’s getting me moving more.

I’ve started dieting. I’ve been off sugar and dairy products for a while, but now I’m also eliminating wheat from my diet as well. I’m practically going gluten free. I’m also counting carbs. The plan set forth by my nutritionist is 45 grams per meal and 15 grams for snacks.

I’m writing this post to help me be accountable. I’ll try and update on my progress every week. You can also follow me on Give it 100

Thanks for taking the time to read my post. I’d also covet your prayers.

Blessings.

Give it 100 Challenge

Ok guys, I’ve accepted a challenge from a friend. The challenge is to do “something” for 100 days and to make a video everyday to keep accountability. So my commitment is to lose weight and exercise for 100 days. I’m going to make my video to tell what exercise I’ve done that day. You can follow me here: Give it 100

I’d like to extend the challenge. So if you would like to take the challenge let me know by commenting so I can follow you.

God Bless you.

52 Week $ Challenge

I saw this challenge on another blog and thought “I could do that!” So I’m going to attempt it. I found the challenge and the printables on 52 Week $ Challenge at Life as You Live It.

There is also a children’s version that uses quarters.

The way it works is every week you add money to your jar. The first week is $1, the second week is $2, the third is $3, the 4th is $4, and so on. The last week, week 52 you add $52. You will then have a little over $1,300. Who couldn’t use that at the end of the year? So who’s with me??

Until next time!
