Challenge - Complete!

Well, here it is  - 24 days later. I've gained more energy and have started a membership at Aerofit a little over a week ago.  I've gotten to work out about twice a week.  I'll be honest, I don't do a high-impact workout, but I do work for about an hour or so each time.  My son has enjoyed going to the gym with me. Bonus!

OK...the before and after...same exact clothes...

I have lost an overall 4 pounds and have dropped a total of 8.5".  For the assessment, I took measurements around my right arm, shoulders, chest, waist, hips, right thigh and right calf.  I think the workouts have helped. Last weekend I had a conference over in League City and I didn't stick very close to the diet. The food at the conference was just too good and the desserts were calling my name!  I didn't try too hard the last few days.  I did take the pills every day and I'm beginning to see more and progress as the days go by.  I've had the shakes for breakfast most of the days of the Max phase (except during the conference where I ate breakfast at the hotel). I have not a had a single cup of coffee in 24 days and only a few glasses of tea (unsweet)...and that's a sacrifice since I LOVE sweet tea!  I've had ONE bowl of Blue Bell (ice cream for those that are not lucky enough to have it in your part of the world). I've had more salads, fruit and nuts in the last few weeks that I have had in the last year.  I've only had fries with lunch a few times.  Biggest change...I actually eat something for breakfast!  I used to just skip this meal most of the time.

Conclusions:  It works!  I'm sure some people have better results and some may have even less.  I like the Peaches & Cream Fiber Drinks better than the Citrus ones (it seems smoother).  I LOVE the Spark and Pink Lemonade is my favorite overall.  I didn't have any adverse reactions to the vitamins in the Max phase. Chocolate Shakes are good. The Berry is good too. I have not tried the Vanilla.  I tried the Fruit & Fiber bar as a snack one day - YUM!  I'm going to continue on with the Max 3 Kit since it has a variety of shakes and Spark flavors and I am going to try adding Catalyst as I hear very good things about it.  I have definitely gotten a good kick start to a new me. This isn't a "diet", it's a lifestyle change and I'm more conscious of the things I put (and don't put) into my body now.

Getting My House In Order

I'll be the first one to confess that I am NOT the world's best housekeeper. I have been a single mom of my 18-year old "baby" since he was just a couple of months old and it hasn't always been easy. As a matter of fact, I think the toddler was more tidy than the teenager. He has a habit of opening cabinets and not closing them, dropping things on the floor wherever he happens to be, leaving items on the counter and so on. After lots of arguments and not making much headway, I decided to pick my battles and let him do his thing in his own room. Then a few things made their way to the living room and little by little, you get used to things being out. And yes, I got lazy and didn't feel like messing with it.  Then one day I looked around and thought that if someone happened to pop in unannounced, I would be totally embarrassed. So, something had to give.

There are as many methods of cleaning and decluttering as there are ways to make a mess.  I have looked thro…
