Tiffany, Week #24: Challenge Recap Part 2

tiffany

Outside of marrying the love of my life and having my children this whole process has been one of my best accomplishments. The past six months have personally touched my soul and I am forever grateful to Family Circle in giving us this once in a lifetime opportunity. In my last post, I recapped the first three months of the challenge. Things got kicked up a notch for the last three:

Challenge 4: Sleep Tight.
A good night’s rest is so vital in weight loss and over all health. If you don’t get the proper amount of sleep it could lead to weight gain, lower your immune system so you get sick or even impair your judgment. We won that challenge and we won new beds for the four of us which we’re loving. They are so comfortable!

Challenge 5: Get Fit.
Exercise goals were set by our personal trainers at Gold’s Gym. Anna was challenged to do an at home routine and lose a few pounds. Andy and I were pushed further than we thought possible and met those challenges and we even broke a couple of personal records! This part of the challenge was also especially hard for us as we had the most difficult time in our parenting lives. It made us come together and the four of us grew. While the road was hard it was a journey worth traveling and made all four of us better for the struggles. Because of us doing so well and the A-team (the Avaglianos) doing the same, we both got to choose a piece of training equipment courtesy of Dicks Sporting Goods. Andy and I chose the elliptical.

Challenge 6: Slim Down.
This month’s goals were just for me and Andy. It was to lose as much weight in a healthy way as possible and get points by doing activities together as a family, staying true to portion sizes and not using food as a reward. Find out how we did when the challenge ends, next Tuesday.

What did you love most about the last three challenges? Post a comment and tell me!

  1. Andy, Tiffany and kids,
    Will miss your updates here and in Family Circle with the Challenge coming to an end. It is really fun rooting for your family and watching all of the progress you have made. I know you will have many additional things to be thankful this year at Thanksgiving as the result of this Challenge.
