    Fit Yummy Mummy New Year Fitness Challenge – Are You In?

    I'm really excited to be hopping back on the Fit Yummy Mummy program New Year's Challenge.

    It really is a lifestyle. I did well last year and managed to keep most of my new habits, but they have petered out over the last few months. Holly to the rescue just in the nick of time!

    The things that I have found to really make a difference that I was letting slide are

    • drinking enough water. I got completely out of the habit.
    • keeping a food journal. This helps so much, I have seen a change in my tendency to grab crappy food right away because a) I don't want to have to write it down b) I can see when I have already eaten more than enough in the line of crackers of cereal instead of good food like raw fruits or veggies.
    • doing my interval training. I kept up with the resistant exercises quite well but let the intervals go.

    You can see my thoughts and progress during the last week of the Fit Yummy Mummy Challenge of 2008, and here is where I am starting now.

    I'll be keeping you posted on my progress and tips as I go along. 

    WHERE AM I NOW? 

    The only measurements that I'm really interested in are my waist and belly bulge.

    Weight: 129 (I've been hovering between 128 and 129 for awhile). 

    Waist: 74.5

    Belly: 87

    Just as I suspected, I'm growing!

    Here is a recap of my final measurements from the last challenge. 

    Waist 71cm (down 1 – I have lost a whopping 7cm, almost 3 inches from my waist since week one, totally amazing) *

    Belly Bulge 83.5 cm

    You know what's really amazing and demonstrates what I've been thinking the past months of not regularly doing my exercises?

    The same weight with or without exercise produces a different body.

    You can see it in my measurements and I can certainly see it in my clothes (and out of them, but that's a whole other story!)

    I think it also is affected by water intake and the types of food eaten.

    I've been eating more cereals/crackers and cheese than I was with less or no water. It seems to go straight to my belly button and stay there.

    Just a few thoughts in case you've been wondering about these things.

    LAST DAY TO JOIN THE NEW YEAR CHALLENGE 

    If you want to spend the next 12 weeks feeling great about yourself, getting strong and looking good, today is the last day to join the challenge. And did I mention prizes? 

    Holly is giving away all kinds of cool prizes as well, including free personal coaching. 

    You can give Fit Yummy Mummy a try for 4.95. I can't believe it myself!

    If you have any problems finding the challenge, just leave me a comment and I will be sure you get in there, but you need to do by tonight, so be sure to take action right now. 

    And here are my newest pictures. I will be posting new ones as I progress.

    My daughter made the process even more fun when she asked me if I was sticking my stomach out, and why do I pull up my shorts so high?

    For the record, they aren't high, the elastic was turned so that they stuck out at the top in the back, in case that is need to know :0)

    WHAT'S YOUR FITNESS GOAL FOR 2009? YOU CAN DO IT IF YOU START TODAY. 

    My goal is to tone up, flatten that paunch and lose about 5 lbs.

    And get that spark that comes along with the Fit Yummy Mummy Lifestyle.

    There's nothing like it.

    It is definitely the time of year to be getting back on board with a Fit Yummy Mummy 12 Week Challenge – I am counting down the days to being 10lbs lighter and 12 weeks stronger!

    Holly gives us assignments throughout the challenge, today it is to examine perfection and the effect that it has on our results – and how it can more likely than not cause more trouble than it saves. I am looking at that today.

    How about you. Has perfection ever brought you down in your efforts to lose weight or get healthier?
