Hot 100 - The Final Episode

When I started this challenge 100 days ago I thought that things wouldn't change much.  I mean what can you truly accomplish in 100 days?  Setting goals is so easy, but can you really see results in such a short amount of time?  In 100 days, I feel like I've accomplished alot.  Sure, I didn't reach my 30 pound goal (I did reach my first goal of 20 pounds) and I didn't exercise like I truly wanted to, but I'm not disappointed in myself.  It just makes me want to set new goals for the next 100 days.

The best part of this challenge was spending more time with my kids while reading.  They really enjoyed that one on one time and I looked forward to it every day.  I'm going to make a conscience effort to keep it up.  We will ALL benefit from it, so why not?

Here is my last update.  I wish I could have gone out with a bang, but sadly I can't report good news.

Goal 1 - Lose 30 pounds - I gained again this week.  Being sick, doped up on antibiotics, and Christmas goodies were not helping.  In 100 days I've lost 26 pounds. 

Goal 2 - Read more to the kiddos - They were only home for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  We read once. 

Goal 3 - Exercise - Feeling like ass for the past 2 weeks has pretty much halted all exercise.  Yesterday I finally got out on my new bike and did some dancing on the Kinect.  This is something in my life that I really need to focus more on!

Thank you Steve for hosting this challenege!

Congratulations on the 26lbs! Reading with the boys sure sounds great. I'll bet they enjoyed it just as much as you did. Hope you feel better soon and have a super New Year.

I agree, setting new goals is important! You've lost 26 lbs. That is GREAT! Now, step it up for the rest. You KNOW what not to eat and what is good! Increase the water and decrease the calories! I look forward to seeing more success from you!
