Let the Challenge Begin :)

We had a fun week up in the country at my parents last week! I have tons of pictures to organize and so I will get those up soon.


Day 1 of the 90 day challenge was pretty crazy! I loaded up 6 kids to drive 3 hours to meet my Aunt halfway from Dallas so they could go spend the week with her. They were all really excited to get to spend time with her and their cousins. When I left there I drove another 3.5 hours to the other side of Austin so I could meet up with Lexy and Tammy at Cynthia’s Challenge party and get to meet her for the first time. Then we had a 4 hour drive back to Houston at 9pm that night!!!  CRAZY day for sure!!

Vi shake with coconut milk, bites of the kids donut holes and kolache(boredom and tired- shoulda had a zone bar), road trip essentials- water and Extra gum, Myoplex protein bar, Vi-shake samples at Challenge party, Chick-FilA chargrilled salad on the way home eaten piece by piece with my fingers so I could drive. :)  I got home at 2am!

It was fun checking out each others boots! :)



Day 2 was pretty low key. I didn’t set my alarm. :) Started off my morning with a vi-shake with milk and an orange flavor mix in. Met up with my cute hubby for lunch at Genghi’s Grill- my bowl was chicken, lots of veggies-peppers, onions, sprouts, cilantro, cabbage, an egg, and island teriyaki.  Snack -Zone bar. Banana after a nap. :) Dinner from Bullritos was salad style with grilled chicken, cilantro lime rice, pico, peppers & onions, cilantro ranch. Dessert – Strawberry cheesecake Vi smoothie I put in a bowl and ate with a spoon – SOOOO good!  Watched the movie John Carter.

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
