As I reflect on the past 6 months of my life I realize how blessed we are—blessed to have been chosen to participate in this challenge. It has been an amazing ride and we will miss it dearly. As we wind down, I thought I’d give you a little recap of the experiences we had and what we learned:
Challenge 1: Eat More Fruits and Veggies.
We loved all the food sent to us from Melissa’s produce and we realized that we were not eating anywhere near the amount of strawberries, oranges, yellow carrots, blueberries, kiwi, kale, you name it! as we’re supposed to. We were introduced to an amazing variety of produce that is out there. This was the month we learned about quinoa and we totally fell in love with it! I also learned that I love lentils, particularly in my salads. So yummy.
Challenge 2: Healthy Hydration.
We are big water drinkers. We love it. Can’t drink enough of it. We also learned that we probably enjoyed wine and beer a little too much as well. We were challenged to drink less wine and beer and to really focus on staying hydrated with water. We learned how much better we felt when we cut back. Clean and pure. Not that having a glass or two of wine (same with beer) is a bad thing but everything in moderation.
Challenge 3: Get Moving.
This was my favorite at the time. I jumped for joy when I opened the package that had our Fitbits in them. I have wanted one of these for ages but just didn’t want to spend the money for one. Moving is my favorite thing to do. If I don’t move it then I can be a bear to be around. It also brought competition with in the 4 of us to see who could have bragging rights with how much we moved. We won a gift certificate from SpaFinder which we’re really enjoying.
Which was your favorite of the first three challenges? Post a comment and tell me!
