    Happy August 1st everyone! I'm very excited about this challenge. I believe it's what I need to get motivated again. I just had breakfast and will be off to the gym!
    How is everyone planning to spend today in healthy way?

    Happy August, everyone! I am ready for this challenge. So far, since getting serious about getting healthy again, I'm down 5 pounds. This challenge is what I need to keep that going, onward and downward! Today is a rest day for me officially, but hubby and I did a walk, about 2 miles. Now for meal planning and prep, and housework. Good luck to us all!

    Happy August!
    I had a bit of a too-big breakfast today but I'm going to manage the day and put in a couple of good workouts. Here's to my best version of me :)

    Happy August Everyone! I am already loving the support and motivation. This is going to be a great month for us all! It is a beautiful day here in Ohio, the perfect way to start the month. I woke up early and made a trip to the store and got rid of all the junk in the house and replaced with healthy snacks for the kids. I'm thinking about making it a park day followed by yardwork!

    I started off today with a hangover(then had leftover spareribs for dinner...) xD. But I got all the healthy food for cooking and a scale (finally!). So it balances out I think ^^

    I'm looking forward to see how much I have lost (as well as every one else!) by the end of this month. I have been doing really well and keeping my calories in check and not snacking late at night (that's my biggest accomplishment so far, along with stopping my soda intake) My husband is doing this with me too this time so it making it a little bit easier since he's on board this time. He gives me the kick in the pant I need when I don't want to get up and go for our walk.

    We can do it!!

    A bit lighter. That sounds lovely. Just back from a weekend away and that means back in my own kitchen with control over how my meals are prepared. I'm looking forward to having a great August and sharing the road with you guys! Have a great Monday.

    Spent my morning pulling weeds and grass out of my garden. Now I'm off to pick up our vehicle that's been in the shop for over a week. My husband and I will get lunch at Souper Salad and we also will go do some hospital visitation. I plan to go to the gym when we get back for a two hour workout plus finish pulling weeds. My brother- in-law and his wife will be dropping in for a visit this weekend, so I have to deep clean my house. We also have a wedding to attend Saturday.
