Up for the Challenge!

Up for the Challenge! Great things are happening since I began my 'Gimme 50 Challenge' almost a week ago!  I feel fantastic, my energy levels are soaring, my creativity is flowing and I feel 'on top'! It's great to feel and experience the dynamics of my mind and body working together.  Integrating my challenge with regular and cardio workouts has been a lot of fun.  Definitely a little tough the first couple of days :) How are you doing on your end?  I've been keeping a log on my FB Fan Page.  Check it out, 'Like' me if you haven't already, and definitely chime in with a comment!   ©Paula D'Andrea July 14, 2011.  All rights reserved....

Maybe your thing is to be spiritually aligned.  If that's the case, get solid with who/what/how keeps you in check.  It may be a specific yoga class twice a week, writing, or a being involved in a...

Let's take a look at what's in your fridge, how it's laid out.  Is there clutter in your fridge?!  Do you have outdated items?  A distinct odor? (gross!)  Is everything all piled up? If so, clean it out!  Just as it is an unhealthy practice to have clutter around your home, your fridge is no different.  After all, this is the place you are seeking to fuel your body from! You should be able to readily see and access your food.  It becomes much simpler when it's stocked well.  If you have compartments for fruit, veggies, meats, etc. - use them. ...
