Winter Wonderland Warriors: Challenge Wrap Up!

Life's Journey with a Smile

WOW! What a fun 12 weeks this has been and I am looking forward to the Spring Fever Challenge Amy has coming up!  Here is my recap of the goals I set for myself 12 weeks ago!

1. Lose 12lbs: 
Yup, I did that! I lost a total of 15.8lbs since the beginning!! WOO HOO!!! So excited and proud of myself!

2. Drink 48oz of water each day: 
I think I hit this one about 50% of the time! I know each day I drink at the very least 32oz, plus two 8oz glasses of milk; if you add that together that gives me the 48! LOL!!! 

3. Exercise 3x a week:
Some weeks I did, some I didn't.  I'd say this one was also about 50%!  I am looking forward to the warmer weather of the spring so I can start running again!

4. Read more of my books:
Yes I did this one for sure!! I completed 2 books and am in the middle of reading 2 more!!!

5. Get my daughter on a more "normal" eating routine/habit:
I am certainly making progress with this one, but this is going to be something that is a constant battle for me with her.  She is just a plain ol' picky eater and that's all there is to it!

6. Scrapbook more:
Ya, not so much.  I scrapped ONE page these past 12 weeks.  So very sad as I am so very, very far behind!

7. Organize my home:
I am kicking butt and taking names on this one!!!  I have done a TON of work clearing out junk from my basement, bedroom, hall closet, and kitchen!!! YAHOO! Still a lot of work to be done, but I will keep working at it until I am happy with it! 

8. Be more patient with my daughter:
This is one that I will always have to strive for; some days are better then others!

9. Make more cooked meals and eat out less:
Yes I have done WELL with this one!!!  I am working hard on keeping a very simple menu each week and sticking to it!

Do you feel like you had a productive winter?
Overall yes.  Many of these goals will be carried over into the Spring Fever Challenge, though!
