Day 6 -Golden Wedding Anniversary

Monday, June 23, 2014

My siblings and I are planning my parents 50th wedding anniversary -set for March 2015. PLENTY of time to get into great shape! We're planning to take a series of family portraits throughout the months before, our 1st being late August -that's 2 months away. I'm excited and hopeful to see positive changes in my body (and face!) being recorded in the portraits. What a great motivator, no?!!

Yesterday was Day 6 of my 100-Day Challenge, which I've decided to call a Journey (100DJ), to Be Kinder & More Loving to My Body.

I started my 100DJ by randomly choosing one of my many books on health/diet/fitness/etc (don't we all have at least 37 of those plus countless magazines & cut-out articles on the same subjects lying around all over the house???). Of course, one book alone wasn't gonna cut it so I decided on a combination of 3, LOL! My choices are... two books that I've had fairly good success with in the past and a Pinterest article of 100- and 200- calorie snacks. Book #1 is about 'carb cycling' by Jorge Cruise, low-carb eating for 2-3 days followed by a high-carb day. And Book #2 is a Tosca Reno clean-eating book. Each of my 3 choices has great, easy, and non-expensive eating plans (ideas) that I know will be valuable in my 100DJ and beyond!

Today I'll begin dutifully tracking & logging-in all food & exercise.

I'm excited! :)

    Love the anniversary idea, what a nice thing to do! And good luck with your 100 Day journey--sounds like you have a good plan. Will have to check out the carb-cycling one, it seems like I naturally do that anyway. Thanks for the info.

    What a great thing to be planning! As long as you are taking portraits, have you thought of randomly taking pictures of you all as you plan? Then you could make scrapbooks for everyone to look at all the memories.
