My First Challenge

30 Day Overhaul Challenge

I have hit a plateau with my weight-loss. I have lost a total of 30 pounds since having my son, who is 16 months old. I have struggled my entire life with my weight. I have never been the size nor weighed the amount I wanted.

About 10 months before learning I was pregnant, I began to really work hard to lose weight. I believe in good old-fashioned exercise and healthy eating is the key to losing weight. I have tried every diet out there and let's face it, if it were simple and easy to lose weight, we all would be skinny.

I recently heard of the Squat challenge. For 30 days you do squats, it starts out with like 25 a day and increases every day, with a rest day every fourth day. I love this concept so much I have decided to make it my own. Hence '30 Day Overhaul Challenge'

I am going to post a calendar in the side template so you can see what every day looks like!

I am also going to post a before and after picture of myself, my TRUE weight, etc. So if I succeed you will get to celebrate with me and if I fail you will see why I have failed.

Each month I will have a new challenge I will create based on what areas I want to focus on. Here is the key though, in order to move on to the next challenge I have to complete the first challenge. If I fail, then I have to repeat for the next 30 days before moving on.

There will be 6 rest days during the challenge. I will pick 2 of these days to be my cheat day. When I say cheat day I don't mean cheat all day long. I will only cheat on one meal or one snack! Maybe ice cream...I love ice scream!
