A Look at My July Challenges

In early July I posted challenges for myself and things got a wee bit messed up because it was a stressful month in my personal and work life. I didn't do so well on the crafting and graphics designing but I did MUCH better on the new healthy me.

Another reason I didn't do so well on the crafting and designing is because the weather has been so perfect for enjoying the summer. There will be plenty of time to do "inside" projects soon enough.

As for the new healthy me goal. I didn't lose the 7 pounds I was hoping for because I got a late start (more like the middle of the month) but what's important is that I'm on the right track! I decided to start slowly so I don't overwhelm myself. I am using my elliptical and have cut way back on the junk food and am making healthier choices in general. I'm not one that likes to be restricted as far as eating so that works best for me. I'll keep you all posted!

Now I think I'll begin my fall challenge & project list.


  1. I hate having to follow a strict diet. Just trying to cut back and make better food choices works best for me. Of course I hate dieting all together. Way to go on making progress towards your goals

  2. I don't do well with diets at all. I do try to make healthier choices but I'm with you, I don't want to be restricted.

    Good job with making progress!

  3. Congrats on your goals! Remember to rely more on how clothes fit than the number on the scale as muscle is more compact and you could go down a size without seeing scale evidence. Way to go!

  4. Great job! I'm a big fan of breaking big goals into much smaller, more manageable ones - that way you get to celebrate your successes much more! :)

  5. I love goals and challenges :) I'm a list person and I love to cross things that I've accomplished off my list!
    Congrats on your healthy start :)

  6. Cutting back on junk food is a big step! You should be proud of yourself :) Also for keeping up with the exercise!

    Enjoy the summer, there will be plenty of time to catch up in the fall!

  7. Congrats on the new, healthier diet!

  8. Good for you Sher! I have a friend who is writing a blog devoted to the evil elliptical! Good luck to you!

  9. I love to hear you are making healthy choices - this can make so much difference to how you feel!
