This last 5 days has already been a challenge! Eating healthy has been going well. I did have an Oreo and glass of milk night but that’s okay.
Eating healthy means eating balanced. To me that means that if your eating healthy having chocolate cake, oreo’s occasionally is okay. It means that you shouldn’t have EVERY meal.
I know that the more I get moving the more I will achieve. I have had 4 weigh days and in those four days I have lost 4 pounds.
This is a journey that is not only physical but also mental. When addicts are going to rehab they are told that going to rehab and getting healthy needs to be for them not for anyone else.
I am doing 100x Movement for me, not for my husband, not for my family and not even for my doctor. I’m doing it because I want to be a better me. I want to be the best me that I can be. I know that in doing that I can be better for those around me if I am happy and healthy.
What are you going to do to be happy and healthy and the best you?
I’ve been pondering all day just what I want this blog to be about. What exactly does Life the Universe & Leftovers mean? As you all know I’m starting a 100x Challenge on Friday, 100 days of change.
What does that change mean?
It means that I will be working on me. Healthy eating, exercise, and a healthy attitude. Being in the right frame of mind.
Making a fundamental change in your life will always be a work in progress. You don’t change over night. You don’t get skinny or healthy over night. It’s a constant change, a daily change sometimes even a minute by minute change.
It is not going to be easy, it is not going to always be fun. It’s going to be work, hard work. Maybe even the hardest work you have ever done. Heavenly Father never promised that it was going to be easy but promised that it will be worth it.
Okay so here we go just 4 days until the kick off of my first 100x Challenge. What do I want to do? Well my BHAG (big hairy audacious goal) is to lose 100 pounds in 100 days. What is it going to take to do that?
- Food- A total shift in the way the family eats. We as a family NL and Hubs and I have promised to eat 100 healthy meals in 100 days. One healthy meal a day is not going to melt off 100 pounds. It’s going to take 3 healthy meals a day so that’s eating healthy for 300 meals
- Movement- It’s going to mean moving every day for an hour or more. Heck I’m a housewife what else do I have to do? Oh yeah feed the family and clean the house. Movement does not include the trek up and down the three flights of stairs and that’s it for the day. this means lacing up the running shoes and kicking some asphalt! I’ve done it before I can do it again.
- Support- Not just “Oh your trying to lose weight that’s great” I mean someone to encourage, to push, to carry when I doubt. I’ve got that! My great friend the creator of the 100x Movement Jess!
- Determination- Determination that I will not let any negative people or thoughts derail my progress.
So all in all what does 100x mean to me? It means a paradigm shift not only in thinking but in actions and reactions. Join me what can you change in 100 days? What can you achieve in 100 days?
I Challenge YOU! You have four days what will you change?
