Day 23 - Pressing PLAY

Today was right back on track day! I actually rocked it better than expected.

We got back from vacation late Saturday night and I spent yesterday playing catch up with grocery shopping and cleaning. I actually drove 20+ miles into Nashville to go to the Farmer's Market there for fresh fruit and veggies because the selection at Walmart and Kroger just didn't cut it. It's summer... I EXPECT great produce at this time of the year!

After making sure that the pantry was stocked with good food and that my house was clean and mostly everything was put away, I started devising a plan for this week. I am jumping head first back into my 90-day challenge because I am still determined!

I did really well with eating while on vacation... way better than I ever have. Out of 9 days on the road, I only overate dinner on 2 of those days. I had some form of exercise on 6 of those days (there were 3 days of straight driving for the most part). I was focused on making good choices at every meal. I was still whipping up my Vi shakes in my hotel room and at my in-laws. And I was drinking plenty of water. It felt good to be in control.

Today I only did 40 min of cardio at the gym. I totally RUINED my workout by stressing about phone calls that I needed to make, bills that needed to be paid, and the 10,000 things I need to catch up on. ***BTW, if I have not responded to your emails or contact requests about the 90-Day Challenge PLEASE be patient with me. I promise to get back to you ASAP! Thanks :)*** I was able to get some more cardio in after dinner today doing Just Dance on the Wii. LOVE that game!

I'm off to bed... tomorrow promises to be another busy day, but I am ready! I am excited because my oldest daughter has asked to go to the gym with me in the morning! She actually says she wants to do the challenge, too. That would be so wonderful... she fights me so bad when it comes to eating healthy and exercising. Just one more reason to stay on track, and that's to set an example for my beautiful girl. I can SHOW her that if I can do it, she can do it, too!


  1. My mum has just re-started her weight loss - I like you, am hoping that doing it together will help us both, and set good examples to each other.
    Well done for your choices on holiday- it is always harder, but those small choices you make will help you long term.

    Have a good week :D X

  2. I am so with you on the disappointing produce at Walmart! That's pretty consistent no matter where you are. I love the Nashville Farmers Market, but have only been a couple of times when visiting my sister in middle TN. Wish I could get there more often, but we actually have a pretty good one in Knoxville! Congrats on the good work while on vacation.
