January is that time of year that some of us focus on getting healthier, eating better and moving more. I am no different. In an effort to do those things, I have joined a weight loss challenge my friend is hosting. I will link her website here. You can go to her website to learn more about it. I am only a few days in, but I feel amazing! I am eating much better and I am moving more. I didn’t weigh myself so I have no clue what I have lost. Sometimes the numbers get to me. So far I have noticed I can exercise a little longer everyday. I purchased a few exercise tools to assist me in my weight loss. It is always fun to add new things to keep from getting bored. I found these at Five Below. A foam roller for my sore muscles, a balance board and the cutest $5 shoes I have ever seen.
I have another friend who asked me to join her in doing the next JJ Smith Green Smoothie Challenge. I believe that starts next month. I have never done an all liquid diet successfully. I really like to chew. So I am looking forward to a few smoothies but not all just smoothies.
I haven’t left out moving more. I am looking for a gym near me. I joined the neighbors in a walking group they have. That has been fun. And it helped me get to know my neighbors. They are in much better shape than I, but they were very considerate.
I have a friend that is trying an ariel skills class. I wish her the best, but I am not ready. I want to lose a few more pant sizes before I hang from the ceiling by a piece of cloth. But I must admit, it does sound like fun. I wonder if she will let me tag along and take some pictures for my blog for research.
I haven’t left out water. I have a Zero water pitcher that I drink from throughout the day. It’s not 8 glasses a day, but I am working on it. For the next 2 months, I will be eating better, moving more and hopefully getting healthier as a result. I will be posting my progress, so stay tuned.
