When this 90 day challenge business began, I thought I would not do it because I felt that I really only had 60 days to commit to it. As you can see from me recent lack of posts I started to struggle in the late 40’s, and on, to blog daily (although I have been faithful about tracking my calories-I have only missed 2 of 60 days). But I thought to myself “better to commit to 90 days and even if I can only see 60 days through I will be better for it”…and I was right. So today, day 60, I have nice shapely arms and legs and I have lost 5 pounds (yes my counter says 7, but remember I started 2 lbs heavier than usual). I have been working out 3-4 times a week, I have run a 5K and I have been tracking my calories daily. Unfortunately I do not have abs…but I have not given up. The month of June is crazy busy for me, but I will squeeze in every last gym day I can (usually I take June-August off from working out). I will continue to monitor my calories (although with summer time the cocktail factor weighs in, which I find directly ties to the bloat factor).
Here is what I know…you can achieve anything you want, if you are willing to do the necessary work. I am just not sure I am committed enough to having abs that I am willing to make the needed sacrifices to have them (no drinking, no sugar, no carbs, etc..). But darn it I still want them! Remember you can always see exactly what I am eating on myfitnesspal.com link and I am open to your suggestions ~HAL
