Progress Made, Goal Met

About 2 months ago I made some health and fitness goals. I'm happy to announce I met my first goal-Lose one pant size by July. I tried on a pair of jeans one size smaller this weekend and discovered they fit. Yeah! So my new goal is to lose another pant size by July.
With the exception of two weeks, I've been to at least one Zumba class a week, but usually two. I'd love to add another one, but it's been difficult lining one up with my schedule. I'm going to try to add one on Mondays but I'm usually in a horrible mood on Mondays and rather come home and sack out on the couch. But Mondays are my best option and hopefully Zumba will be something I can look forward to at the end of a long day.
I'm doing better with my fruit and veggie intake. I'm still not hitting 6 servings but I am closer to 4 servings. I add fruit to my after workout shake and pick up fruit on my way into work every morning. If I could add an extra veggie I'd be set. I am loving these Fruit Crisps. I bought a box at Costco and I am plowing my way through them. Even Tai likes them. Gotta make another Costco run soon to get more!
Just had to share my progress. Fitting into those smaller jeans really made my day!


  1. CONGRATS LINDA!!! I'm very proud of you for accomplishing your first goal into getting into a size smaller! Isn't it the best feeling and hope it keeps you energized to make your next goal! Great job on the fruit! My hubby has been trying to eat more fruit too, he makes a shake at night now to get the rest of his servings in! I always steal 6 oz of it! :)

    Keep up the good work!!!!

  2. Wow! That is so great and exciting about your jeans. I know for me , that is where I really notice a change. Nothing makes you feel better than to fitting into something that didn't fit before. Good job at keeping it up.....that is the hardest part. Good for you!!

  3. That is so awesome Linda!!! I'm sitting here cheering wildly for you!!!! A full size is a great accomplishment!! Keep up the fantastic work!

  4. Congrats! It feels so good when you realize you did it and small goals are good. I just started a raw diet, with only a full cooked meal in the evening and I have lost 14 lbs in two weeks! Got my "skinny" jeans on this weekend and had some room to spare!

  5. Congratulations! That's so exciting!

  6. Congrats Congrats! Working out on Mondays is so hard for me. If you can make it part of your schedule- that would be huge! I'm so proud of you! :)
