Zone Perfect Blog Forward Challenge 2014 – Challenge #3I can hardly believe it’s October! Where did this year go? It’s Challenge # 3 in my Zone Perfect Blog Forward Challenge and while I’ve made some healthy changes like drinking more water and eating even more veggies, I’m ashamed to say I haven’t made the progress I promised myself I would. That scale is holding its stubborn ground! I have a million excuses as to why the weight isn’t flying off like other challengers…some of them are really good, even creative but the underlying reason is really quite simple – I haven’t been held accountable.
When I look back at the letter I wrote to myself projecting where I would be at this time I feel sad that I didn’t achieve what I saw in my mind’s eye:
It warms my heart to see the reflection looking back at me. With purposeful action and determination you’re doing what you said you were going to do and so much more! I love the calm grace that’s become a part of your presence…if I knew 10 minutes of meditation and yoga in the morning had that kind of power I could have saved frazzled nerves and many gray hairs. No worries, I’m grateful for all the life changing lessons I’ve learned. 30 short minutes can shrink your waist and thighs! Thanks to Zone Perfect nutrition bars my once raging sweet tooth is tamed and that once dangerous BMI has moved to a safer zone and we still have the sexy curves! It’s nice to rock the confidence to match the bomb outfit and now I can again. Every day is a challenge but I know you’ll keep doing what you need to do to stay fit even if you stumble along the way. There’s no going back to where we were…when you know better you do better, so I’m counting on you. You were right, TV is in our future again and I’m so excited for the adventure ahead.
Wow, what an incredible vision. I want to meet that woman in the mirror so I can’t let myself down. I’ve still got a few months before this challenge officially ends and it’s time to kick things into high gear. As much as I hate it, I’m hardwired to do my best work when my back is up against the wall. Thankfully I’ve got a great ally on my side with ZonePerfect nutrition bars. My new favorite flavor is chocolate almond raisin…serious yum!
Here are my updated Accountability Wellness Goals…
1. Make it a mission to get a minimum of 30 minutes of heart pumping cardio EVERY day! No excuses period.
2. Drink at least 64 ounces of water everyday.
3. Desert on Sundays ONLY! Enjoy a ZonePerfect bar on the other days of the week. . With less energy spikes and crashes caused by excessive sugar, I’ll be naturally sweet.
4. Bedtime by midnight!
5. Wake up 1 hour before the kids for yoga and a quick workout.
