Spring Fever Challenge: Week 4

Life's Journey with a Smile

My Goals:
1. Lose 8lbs!
2. Exercise 3x a week!
3. C25k program!
4. Scrapbook more!
5. Read more!
6. Continue cleaning, organizing, and purging in my home!

Positive Picture:

This is what I wore for Easter.  Its a size 10 skirt and the shirt is a Junior size large! WOO HOO! I am so thrilled!!!

What have you done this past week to help you achieve your goals?
I have lost a total of -1.2lbs since the start of this challenge (G1); that is a bit disappointing, but I will keep working at it!  I continued reading my book (G5).  I also listed a bunch more items on craigslist(G6).

What did you do this past week to make you feel good about yourself?
Wearing the clothes I wore on Easter was HUGE for me!! I am not a skirt person because I have always hated how I look in them because of all the extra weight!  Now that I am getting off the poundage I feel like I can wear fun stuff and feel good about it!

Fill in the blanks:
Teaching comes naturally to me.
Exercise and eating healthy does not come naturally to me.
I wish exercise came naturally to me. 

Fun Question:  What is your favourite Easter candy? Are you allowing yourself some this year?
I love Cadbury eggs and peeps!!  (OMG, did you know they make chocolate covered peeps now????)  Yes I am allowing myself to have some easter goodies! I have learned not to deny myself things because I end up binging to fill the craving!!

  2. I love that you enjoy wearing skirts now. You look great in it too!

  3. I discovered chocolate covered Peeps this year - 110 cal for milk chocolate, 120 for dark, perfect way to satisfy a sweet craving without going too crazy!
