I will first start by saying that I tried the chocolate chip cookie dough lara bar this past week, and it was amazing! My husband tried the pecan pie bar and that was pretty yummy, too! Who knew larabar's were so delicious and nutritious? Okay, the rhyming ends here. ;)

So far, summer has been a hard time for me to lose weight! Although I have been so much more active, I have been eating out with my husband and friends a lot more this time of year. On Saturday, my husband and I showed my younger sister the bike trail that we found last weekend. We rode another 10 miles on our bikes. It was so much fun! We burned a lot of calories but then we consumed twice as much for dinner afterwards. If it wasn't for all of my activity this summer, I know I would have easily gained more than I have lost so far in this challenge!

I'm thankful for another week! Another fresh start! I may have gained 2 pounds since last week, but I'm not giving up. I am pressing on!

  1. I recommend the peanut chocolate Lara bar. Amazing! I use it as a treat after I go to the gym.
