June Challenge - Week Three

Yesterday I weighed in and was happy with the result!

Down a couple LB's from last week. Alright!

I'm about half way through my June Challenge and I'm happy to see the scale drop (it like it's hot). It definitely has something to do with tracking my food for 5/7 days last week, drinking all of my water and getting a little exercise in there. Who would have thought that would help? Wink, wink.

Adding some fruits and veggies to my meals has been helping the weight loss lately, too. Just another reason to love summer. Fresh, fresh, FRESH fruits and veggies!

Meal Plan for the Week:

Monday: Spare Ribs, Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans - DONE and YUM!
Tuesday: Steak with Asparagus and Corn on the cob
Wednesday: Chicken Salads with Corn on the cob
Thursday: Chicken with Asparagus and Corn on the cob
Friday: Chicken with Asparagus and Corn on the cob

I had to quickly fit grocery shopping in to our Father's Day plans yesterday, so my meal plan for the week isn't as creative (laugh) as usual. I will change up the way I prepare the chicken, but in essence, that's what I picked up for us to eat this week. The spare ribs, mashed potatoes and greens beans for tonight, though, came from my awesome mother-in-law; and it was all good!

Exercise Plan for the Week:

Monday: 30 min workout - DONE!
Tuesday: Rest
Wednesday: 30 min workout
Thursday: Rest
Friday: 30 min workout

I chose to do Wii Fit Yoga for my 30 minutes of exercise tonight. Thanks to that game, I pretty much have become a Yoga Master. How do I know? The game tells me so!

Burning 119 calories for 30 minutes of looking silly in my living room (a/k/a doing yoga); you just can't beat it! Especially when you're back hurts and you don't feel like running. Yoga is a good alternative! Between pain in my feet and back these past couple weeks, I have kind of transitioned away from running and stuck with alternative exercise. Don't worry, I know this running break won't last too long. Even though my back was in some serious pain today (for no apparent reason, might I add) I still wanted to run on the treadmill. I think the pain is from inflammation, so I talked myself in to staying low impact until the pain goes away. A girl has to work; and an injury just wouldn't be fun right now. Summer is just beginning!

I'm not sure if you remember or not, but I recently was contacted by a secret person who asked me to review a secret product and also host a GIVEAWAY for the secret product so that one of my secret readers could win a secret prize. WELL, the secret products secretly came in the mail today! I was SO excited when I got home! (Actually, the product doesn't have to be a secret, and I will definitely be revealing it all soon, I just like to keep you guessing!)

I am excited to reveal the products that I will be testing for myself this week and giving away to one of you lucky readers very, very soon!

For now, I'd like to know what your guess is as to what exactly I may be giving away! Let me give you a hint; it's one of my favorite things, it starts with an f and rhymes with mood. Ready, set... guess!


  1. FOOD! Can't wait to hear about it!

    Also, meals look simple, but yummy!

  2. Food!
    I love food! I can't wait to hear! I'd love some ideas to get me back on track completely!
