44 Day Challenge

Did you know it’s 44 days until Halloween arrives? This really begins the Autumn/Holiday season for many. My hubby James and I always have our little tradition. We eat burgers ( now vegan)  and carve pumpkins and drink cider, all watching scary movies. It’s a tradition we honored since our Pittsburgh days. This year we will not let that tradition slide by.

Today I’m starting a 44 day challenge. I’m going to try to show up here daily and share what I’m doing. I’m going to take it Day by day because I may change things up, but my plan is to focus on nutrition, fitness and goals. To show up daily despite my work schedule. I’ve lost 23 lbs but in my opinion I’ve been not working as hard as I can. I watched a video with Tao-Porchon Lynch and she really inspired me. So today begins my challenge. It’s 44 days until Halloween. Let’s do this!! 

No cheat days until Halloween. No pasta. Only whole grain foods in moderation. A little dark chocolate is ok. I’m really going to try to not eat my goodies at our bake sale, just the vegan healthy cookies but in moderation. No refined junk of any kind. I’m going to eat clean vegan. 

Daily Yoga Sun Salutations, and some other workouts. I’m using Melissa Bender Fitness, and my cardio will be walking, running etc. I plan to move 60 minutes a day plus ten sun salutations daily. Legs up a wall before bed. I don’t care if my workout before or after work, if I have time to sit and watch tv I have time to without. 1 hour plus ten sun salutations. Like that Pizza Guy on YouTube says, that’s the rules. Everybody knows the rules, everybody being me. 

The other things I will be adding will be addressed in future posts. What I’m reading, writing, who I’m watching for inspiration. Fun classes I may take, plus tools for self development. Products I use to help me heal and make me feel well again. I’m not sick but my body can be my temple again. Lots of personal goals I’m going to tackle. No procrastination. Today is the day. As I type this we found out an old friend in Pittsburgh PA lost his battle with Lung Cancer. He was only 38. Life is short. Do what you dream of doing today. RIP Chris Pierce. Thank you for your kindness.

RIP Chris

 

SAVE THE DATE BAKE SALE

Happy Thursday!! Today is day three, back to counting my points, I’m proud to say I’m getting my willpower back. Soon I will be volunteering at the Horse Sanctuary. I lost my first ten. I’m going to remember I’m accountable to the charities I pick every time I want to succumb to stress eating, it helps me stay the course. Giving back is a lot of what this blog was about in the past, and I’m trying to make it just as much so now. Lose weight, give back and get fit. 

On that note I’m helping plan a bake sale for a great cause. Save the date!! We are planning a bake sale for Saturday September 28, 2019 12:00-3:00. All funds are going to help my friends dog Oreo, who needs surgery. I’m making vegan goodies and there will be plenty of baked goods to choose from. All the information is on the flyer photo below. There is also a go-fund me page. I understand what it’s like to have astronomical vet bills. Our companion animals are family. Isn’t Oreo just the cutest? If you live in the Houston area or anywhere near The Woodlands you should stop by. There will be lots of goodies for a very good cause. Save the date!!

Love and Light to all! It’s coffee time!!
