90 day challenge update

I am almost 2/3 of the way through my challenge! 34 days left!
If you didn't read my first post about what I'm doing, here it is:

I'm loving this! I make a shake for breakfast that 23 vitamins and minerals in it and it tastes great. The best part? This is "breakfast dishes":

Now that I'm done breastfeeding I can eat chocolate so I've started making a chocolate peanut butter shake. Um.... Pretty much amazing! I just use a little peanut butter powder from the Hy-Vee health food section  and cocoa powder mixed with the shake mix.

I'm doing much better with working out. I have a kickboxing DVD that I've done sporadically, but I've decided to start trying to do it three times a week. I learned a great tip while reading a magazine article this week; "Don't let yourself take shower before you do a work out." This has helped me a lot! I got in the three kickboxing workouts this week on top of my walking.

What about you? What is a tip you have learned that helps you be more disciplining with your eating habits or exercising?

  1. I have been on a high protein/low carb diet for the last 7 weeks and I find that if I get up and work out first thing in the morning it keeps me motivated. If I wait until the end of the day I don't have the motivation.

    Also, it is easy for me to stay on my diet by choosing foods I actually like. The protein bars I eat are so good. And I was a big ice cream eater before and I was so worried about what it would be like without ice cream. BUT we have this fabulous place called Orange Leaf (self serve frozen yogurt) that I go to once a week! I can have any of the nonfat flavors (which are soooo yummy)!

    Good luck to you! How much have you lost this far into your challenge?
