Hey everyone, the next 40 days are probably going to be a little different. Inspired by a local yoga studio (Yoga Yoga…which is amazing btw) I’m going to be putting myself through a 40-day challenge. For 40 days, I will not drink coffee, soda, or alcohol. I also will not buy breakfast or lunch here at work (must bring from home), and I also will be doing Zumba every day for 40 days. I wasn’t ready nor did I have the money this month to commit to the Yoga Yoga challenge which consists of taking at least 1 yoga class a day, considering I’d have to drive and the gas would also cost me money. However, I will be rewarding myself with a monthly unlimited yoga plan once I kick this 40-Day Challenges butt!! I’m also going to be rewarding myself with an iPad after saving bunches of money on bringing my own breakfasts and lunches.

So here’s to the next 40 days! I’ll be keeping a more than likely short and sweet blog entry each day about where my head is at and how I’m doing with the things I want to accomplish.

Breakfast: Banana and Almond Muesli

Lunch: Turkey, Tomato, and Boiled Egg Sandwich

Snack: Strawberry Special K Bar (.81 oz.)

Exercise: Zumba Intermediate-20 minutes

Dinner: Southwestern tamale soup

How I’m Feeling: So far so good. I’m a little tired today, it hit about 3 p.m. That’s pretty normal though, as I didn’t get near enough sleep last night and stayed up late. I’ll definitely need to go to bed earlier tonight. The Muesli for breakfast definitely kept me full until well after lunch time. The sandwich was ok, not as good as I was expecting. Needs a little something else for flavor. Will have to work on that. Will have to try the Muesli with water instead of milk perhaps and also with apples and sunflower seeds. Mix it up. Excited about that one. No cravings for coffee or soda yet today.

After Zumba, I just danced around the house to my favorite music. Just bouncing around on my energy high from Zumba really pumped me up! Feeling good, but still gonna go to bed early.
