I'm now a contributor to my friend Kathy's new blog, Healthy Living Challenge 2009. I will be participating in the challenge and this will help keep me accountable. My goal is to lose at least 20 pounds my earning 8 points per day (except Sunday). I get points for reporting, exercising, drinking water, taking a multi-vitamin, and more.
Today, so far, I have done 20 minutes of cardio yoga, drank 24 oz. of water, taken my multi-vitamin, and had snack balls for breakfast instead of granola. Snack balls is actually Kix, which is whole grain and has 3 g. of sugar per serving, so it fits within the parameters of this challenge.
I'm hoping to lose the weight in 12 weeks, and then I'll do some sort of modified version of the challenge for the rest of the year to keep the weight off.
