Healthy You Challenge Week 9

Time to check in for the Healthy You Challenge!

well while I am still up from last Friday (read the previous post if you have not), however for this challenge, I am down .8 from where I was last week. That is at least a nice thought.

I have also met my exercise goal that I set last week of 2X and I actually exceeded it, by going for 3X. I did a day of cardio, a day of strength, and a day of yoga. Loved every minute of all three and plan to keep it up while I can. Just not on days like today...worked a 12 hr day again and it was not pretty.

I just want to thank everyone who left kind words yesterday in regards to my frustration. Its so nice to know that there are people out there who believe in me and who can offer some helpful words to help me get through times like this. Thanks!

Im going to try for at least 2 days of exercise next week as well. I also have the jewelry party on Friday and a family party with my boyfriend on Saturday. Both events will be challenging as there will be lots of food, but I plan on doing my best to make the best choices that are available. I will let you know how it goes!

I think you're probably the most disciplined person, food-wise, in this challenge. And now that you're adding exercise to your life, you are going to see amazing results. I am so proud of you!

You're doing great with the exercise! Wow! Exceeding the goal - good work.

Enjoy your events (in an on-plan way, of course). You can do this!

I think Laura N. (Life of L) nailed it with her comment on your post yesterday.

Great on 3x's exercising!

Hope you enjoy your parties!

You are fabulous! I'm so impressed that you got all of your exercise in - good job, lady!

Way to go for exceeding your exercise goal! That is really great. I can't imagine working as long as you do and still working out, so I think you should really feel proud of yourself. :) And I agree with Hanlie--you discipline with food choices continues to inspire me and prove that one can make good choices if they really want to!

YEAH HEATHER! Exercise kudos!

Enjoy your party. Is it a Silpada party? That's my favorite jewelry party. I go gaga over their stuff. Wish they had it here in Oz....then again, it's probably good that they don't!
