Day 3 of 100

100 Day Challenge 

Ok, So I neglected to mention that this raw food adventure is going to a 100 day challenge along with exercising and a religious activity. Yay for day 3. Not much to comment on today, but it's a rainy day 80% chance which will kill our outside walks but I'm going to power through some how. 

Great update I actually hit 10000 steps by 5pm yesterday. emoticon 
I ended the day with 11971. Also all this extra work is paying off I'm down past my previous stall line of 177 emoticon So Happy, Gonna keep up the good work. 

So All this working out and speed walking killed me last week.  My knee started giving me issues and I almost caved a couple of times, but powered through.  I'd like to also thank my "Creed Card" which I got from the Humana living fit conversation.  

The Creed Card reads:

I don't fee like walking, and the choice is up to me.....

But I want and deserve to be Lean, Healthy, and Fit.

So, for right now I choose to be uncomfortable, get
up and get walking and train my mind to make 
exercise and it's benefits a regular part of my life.

So with that in mind I was temporarily uncomfortable getting started and worked through the discomfort to keep exercising and as the weight post above shows it's working.

Welcome to National Prematurity Awareness Month

We have made it to another year.  Welcome to the National Prematurity Awareness Month -NOVEMBER. 

It's that time of year again.  I have no words for the joy I feel participating with the March for Babies each year.  The first year we did it to support the organization, but after 2009 preterm labor and birth took on a whole new meaning for me and my family.  Now we walk to support the organization, but also in memory of our DS who was born way to soon due to complications.  But we also thank the March of Dimes for all they do because after him I had 2 successful full term pregnancies with the help of medical care and weekly progesterone shots that helped me carry my DS and DD right to the 37 week mark.

So this month I want everyone to remember those in their family born to soon or those in your extended families (friends/co-workers) that were born to soon.  Wear PURPLE in love on November 17th for World Prematurity Day. 

Raw Food Day 2

Raw Food, Who knew?

Ok, So I've decided to start slow, replacing one to two meals or all 2 if I'm feeling it.  I commited myself last June to going fully raw cold turkey.  Which worked at first, then I fell off into old habits (being a vegetarian not to bad).  So I've been toying around with new recipes and watching some inspirational videos and so I'm back at it.  This time I'm going to ease my way into it.  At some point I will do @Rawvana's 7 day reset to Reset my body and mind then make out my meal plans with raw meals and not look back.

So far today:
 I've had a bowl of fruit (mango, strawberries and blackberries) for breakfast.  With a side of lime & strawberry infused (32oz) water.

 I'm looking at a salad mixed greens (romaine, chard, & kale), mini bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and italian dressing.

 I'm thinking Spaghetti squash (especially since DH already tried cutting into it SMH).

Wish me good health
