I would love to say that my challenge has been smooth and successful but it’s had several glitches.
Miss Lisa who is doing this program with me has gotten sick a couple times herself and had some other things going on. I’m beginning to think it will need to be the 120 Day Wellness Challenge. Shortly after we started my whole family got sick and after taking care of everyone I seemed to get the worst case of it, I think because I was so exhausted. Having a few family stresses hasn’t helped matters either. The Insanity Workout Program has been too much for my back and my body just hasn’t wanted to seem to lose weight with watching my diet. My current weight loss has only been 3 pounds
My exercise routine has been Zumba 3 to 4 days a week, the Beach Body Slim in 6 “Start It Up” 2 to 3 times per week and Yoga about 2 to 3 times per week. My back is finally feeling like I can step up the exercise a bit. I can tell that to create any further change in my body I have to step up the exercise level to a more intense level.
This week I’m going to start NOT eating after 5:00pm at night which is so hard for me. With kid and adult schedules our dinner time just seems to be at 7:00pm. I will be drinking a meal shake for breakfast and lunch with an early dinner. Because I’m not really getting as far as quickly as I would like I’m going to do what I can to jump start my weight loss with eating/drinking this way.
I continue to utilize and love the Hungry Girl Cookbooks. One of our favorite recipes we tried was........
MOSTLY ROASTED VEGGIE EXPLOSION
Hungry Girl 200 under 200 Cookbook, Page 120.
We altered this recipe quite a bit. You're supposed to roll the veggies in the eggplant BUT we just layered it to satisfy all the different likes in our home. We also sprinkled garlic powder & Parmesan Cheese on the top of it. I don't know how it tastes according to the recipe but this way was AMAZING!!!
I shall report back soon! Kelly
