Weight Loss Challenge

So I stepped on the scale today and I had a little victory dance!  :) January 1st I was 122 pounds and this morning I weighed in at 118.5.  :)  I am making healthy choices and working hard at the gym.  I FEEL GREAT!  I know some of you see that number and think I wish I was that number.  The truth of the matter is it is just a number.  I am a very short women and I may weigh less now then when I got married but the body is still not like it used to be I am trying to firm up the middle, and tone the legs.  I still have lots of baby fat to loose!  I put the number on here to help keep me accountable and not to make anyone stumble in jealousy or anger.  

Today I challenged myself to run a 5K and beat my time from last year-- SUCCESS!  I did it in 27 minutes and 30 some odd seconds.  :) WOOT!  

Like I mentioned before I am being honest here in my weight and my struggles for the whole world to see!

So what struggles did I have this week?  Food!  I was with teens on Saturday and they eat anything and everything but I did not fall into temptation eating all the junk.  :)  YAY!  I really feel like the devo I have been using on youversion.com has been helping- Look up the devotional Made to Crave.   Helps change your perspective each day!  :) 

How is your health?  Ready for a challenge?

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
