Okay.....time for an update! I just reread what a wrote a mere 14 weeks ago on the eve of BLC23 starting. Who knew that it would have been one of the most personally challenging AND rewarding time periods in my life! I lost a total of 16lbs during the challenge and oodles of inches but that is not what I'm most proud of.......I'm proud that I STUCK WITH IT even when life shot me some curve balls.
Curveball #1 - In an effort to eat more healthy, I sent myself into a 3 week sickness that almost resulted in hospitalization due to food sensitivities I knew NOTHING about!
Curveball #2 - Once I felt better, my Mom had surgery on 11/14 and never recovered. She passed away on 12/14/13 and my SPage will forever pay homage to her amazing fighter spirit!
Curveball #3 - My FIL who has Alzheimer's and lives with us took a nosedive in his health at the beginning of December which continues to this day.

BUT I PERSEVERED! For the most part I continued to eat healthy; I exercised to help me deal with the stress; paid attention to my sleep amount due to my worries and drank more water. The result was a healthier me which I plan to continue.

So the Lesson iS THIS..... Life is GONNA throw you some curveballs and might even do them one right on top of the other but that is not reason to stop living a Healthy Lifestyle!

24/7/365! That's my motto!

What's yours?
