I can’t believe we are half way through January already! This has been a good month so far. I am staying focused on my goals by keeping busy with on line challenges hosted by a few blogs I follow. Two of them ( Start Clean 2013 – http://www.katieheddleston.com/2012/12/14/get-excited-start-clean-2013/ and Skinny Jeans Challenge #sjchallenge http://www.gofitgals.com/go-fit-gals-challenge/ ) each keep me motivated with weekly or daily challenges such as: Including veggies in ALL 3 meal, Meatless Mondays, skinnying up a favorite recipe – plus daily motivation to workout. Start Clean runs for the month of January and SJChallenge is from 1/14-2/25. The third challenge is a plank a day #planksalot through http://www.onetoughmotherrunner.com/good-things-come-to-those-who-plank/ This is a lot of fun – When I first started I thought it was awesome that I could hold a plank for :30 but today I made it a whole 1:22! Woo Hoo! I am a competitive person by nature and so seeing myself improve each day really keeps me going. Everyone online is really supportive of each other too and I am getting to know some great people! For each group, you keep in touch by Facebook, Twitter, blogs or Instagram -each one having their own way of tagging your picture or post. If you get a chance to join in on a challenge such as these, DO IT!
It is still too early to discuss my progress through these groups but I hope to have great results to share in a few weeks!
Do you add veggies in to your breakfast? I have an issue: scrambled eggs/omelets make me gag and I am not a fan of hash browns either. I need to think outside the box with this part of the SJChallenge! This morning I subbed out my wheat bread for left over roasted potatoes, broccoli and red pepper as a side to my over easy eggs. It was good but not something I want to eat every day! I am open to suggestions….
