Everyday Life

Week 4 – 30 Day Challenge

We have finally made it through our last full week of our 30 day challenge. It has gone very well. We have remained full, stuck to the diet probably about 95% of the time, and we both have noticed a change in our body’s appearance.  Tuesday (5/20/14) will be our last full day, and we will do a weigh in and measurements to see our changes. I can’t wait!  We will continue to eat healthy, but don’t plan on being so strict. If we have the desire to eat Mexican, we will, see a move with popcorn, we will. But it won’t be a lifestyle for us, as it never has been. But going through these 30 days, and looking/feeling better we are now closer to where we want to be, and it will make it easier to maintain. Here is our menu for week 4:

There are a few meals that I couldn’t remember, but I can promise you it was something I have already fixed. I tried to keep everything simple, and as grab-and-go as possible. Especially for Josh. He does home health, so he is in a car all day. No access to a fridge/microwave. It definitely makes it hard to pack a ‘always cold’ lunch for him.

But…so far, so good. Check back Wednesday for our weight loss final update!
