WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE - 90 DAYS INTRO
I've been inspired by so many lately and I just recently had an 'ah ha' moment when I was watching a video on youtube by yolibean. It was all about honoring our bodies. Weight loss has always been a challenge for me and I, like many of you, do not like or truly respect this body I've been given. It's treated me fairly well despite a few bumps in the road and I thought I should do something on my life's journey to show gratitude and respect so I have decided as of  August 1, 2012 I am going to do a 90 day challenge and every day I am going to do the very best I can to honor my body.
The base for my challenge is going to be following the Body by Vi program but if you chose to come along with me you can do whatever you feel will work for you. It's all about taking care of our precious vessel.
Over the next 90 days I will be posting 90 second videos to help inspire and mainly for me to be accountable and on task. You can access the videos here:

Please come along on this journey with me and we can support each other!


90 DAY CHALLENGE DAY ONE

Today was pretty good. I woke up with a headache but I forged ahead not wanting anything to become an excuse for not starting my challenge and the day was so much easier than I thought it could've been. I created a journal to track my journey which will be very helpful for me!


90 DAY CHALLENGE DAY TWO
Today was a difficult day health wise but I had no problems at all follwoing the Body by Vi challenge. I was experiencing quite a bit of nerve pain but after taking it easy and a soaking bath I feel much better!

90 DAY CHALLENGE DAY THREE

I felt a little bit better today. All 5 grandsons are sleeping over at Camp NanaPapa so I must honor my body by taking time for myself throughout the weekend! Wish me luck with that!!!

90 DAY CHALLENGE DAY FOUR

 Today we walked for about an hour an a half througout the Valley Zoo. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we were all pooped by the end of the day!!

90 DAY CHALLENGE DAY FIVE
Having the grandsons around really keeps you moving. Today we headed to Elk Island Park. Drinking shakes was a challenge while we were on the go so I ate a salad for lunch and had my shake for supper instead.

90 DAY CHALLENGE DAY SIX
 
I started taking the vitamins that come with the Body by Vi so that I can have a little more energy!!


90 DAY CHALLENGE DAY SEVEN


Vlogging from the Pocohontas Cabins in Jasper National Park, Alberta. My hubby and I went for some R&R and I still stuck with my program!!  I am now 4 pounds down!


90 DAY CHALLENGE DAY EIGHT

Still on vacation and making healthy choices for eating when you are on the road!


90 DAY CHALLENGE DAY NINE
