Week One of 90 Day Challenge

Last week, was the beginning of our
90 Day Sister Challenge...

First let me begin by saying I began
this week full of hope and determination.
I began my PX90 video tapes and walking
in the evening with my son (that part is
more for him them me). I ate great, I even
skipped my own "Birthday Cake"
All and All, I felt great........

And then, this morning came....

You see, me and the scale have this
love hate relationship... more hate
than love. So once again, I stepped
on the scale with much hesitation.
I hesitate cause I fear the number.
I fear the failure, I fear the
. I fear I will quit.

But not this time, I will not allow
the number of the scale to defeat me.
It is not the number here that is
important, it is being healthy. So,
am I upset that the scale did not
change... still 173. No, I feel
triumph cause I ate healthier. I
made good food choices, I exercised
daily and felt the burn, the pain.

This is a 90 day plus forever journey.
So this week was just the beginning,
regardless of what the results were.

"Long-range goals keep you from being
frustrated by short-term failures."

So, I look back at this past week and
make small changes and remain positive.

Kudo to my sis for taking it off...
Keep up the good work and remember,
" I am watching... I am cheering you on..
Win or lose, we will walk away from this

And with that, I leave you with this.

"What lies behind us, and what lies
before us are small matters
compared to what lies within us."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson


  1. Thats right, don't let the scale control how you feel. Just had that conversation with Vinnie tonight, that just thinks it so easy to go back to what I was in High School. Some people will never get the struggles of weight. It's not easy, so keep it up, you can do it! Love you!

  2. Hi! I saw that you stopped by my blog (The Style Geek) the other day, so I decided to check yours out. So glad I did! 1.) It's ADORABLE! 2.) I am so encouraged by this blog post, especially the quote "Long term goals keep you from being frustrated by short term failures." I need to be CONTINUALLY reminded of that with my career goals.
    As far as your weight loss journey is concerned, I have been there and while it IS a process, I am living proof that you CAN do it and keep it off! I'm definitely gonna stop back by your blog soon!
