Fall Challenge

My 7 week challenge over the summer was a huge success. I lost 12 lbs. during that 7 weeks, and I have lost another 8 lbs. since then, and it was all due to changes I made in my diet. For the most part, I have cut out as many sugars and carbs that I can. I still eat them, but I don't eat as many of them. I mainly eat protein and green veggies, and have actually learned to love them more than the carbs I used to crave. No when I see cake, I think "ugh, no thanks."

My next challenge is to lose 10 lbs. by the end of the year. That will put me at 154 lbs. which at 5' 6" is considered to be the upper end of my normal, healthy BMI.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did so. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
Mark Twain

Climb The Mountain


I tried to climb the mountain today. As I inched my way up the path, I felt out of breath and had to turn back.
I tried to climb the mountain today. But, It was so hot outside, I thought I had better stay in my nice air-conditioned house and rest up for tomorrow's attempt.
I tried to climb the mountain today. On my journey, darkness started to fall and I was full of fear, so I had to return to a safe place.
I was ready to climb the mountain today. But I had so may other things to do, so instead of climbing the mountain I took care of the much more important tasks; I washed my car, mowed the grass and watched the big game. Today the mountain will have to wait.
I was going to climb the mountain today. But as I stared at the mountain in all it's majestic beauty, I knew I had no chance of making it to the top, so I figured why even begin trying.
I had forgotten about climbing the mountain today, until an old friend came by and asked what I was up to lately. I told him about all my plans to climb that mountain someday. I went on and on about how I was going to accomplish the task.
He stopped me and said, "I just got back from climbing that mountain. for the longest time I told myself I was going to try to climb it but never made any progress."
"I almost let the dream of making it to the top die. I came up with every excuse of why I could not make it up the mountain, but never once did I give myself a reason why I could. One day as I stared at the mountain and pondered, I realized that if I didn't make an attempt at this dream all my dreams would eventually die."
" The next morning, I started my climb. It was not easy, and at times I wanted to quit. But no matter what I faced, I placed one foot in front of the other, keeping a steady pace. When the wind tried to blow me over the edge, I kept walking. When the voices inside my head screamed, stop! I focused on my goal, never letting it out of sight. I kept moving forward. I could not quit because I knew I had come too far to stop now. Time and time again, I reassured myself that I was going to finish this journey. I struggled mightily to make it to the top, but I CLIMBED THE MOUNTAIN."
"I have to be going," my friend said. "Tomorrow is a new day to accomplish more dreams. By the way what are you going to do tomorrow?"
I looked at him, with intensity and confidence in my eyes, and said, "I HAVE A MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB."Author unknown

I hope you're having a wonderful day! As you can tell, I love quotes lol and I thought this would apply to pretty much everyone, especially myself! Hope you like it emoticon

Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.

I was looking through some quotes about dreams and this really made me think. It is completely right. I hope to try and live my life by this quote aswell. I hope you enjoy!

Our waking hours form the text of our lives, our dreams, the commentary.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is a quote I am trying to live by. I just wanted to share it with you too!
