Summer Challenge

Now that summer school is over I am about to get back to my healthy habits!!! End of the year makes for a rough go at it health wise! When 2014 rolled around I finally decided to give Crossfit a try. I was so intimidated by the sport, but see the amazing things people do/accomplish that I finally worked up the nerve to do it! I started a cleanse and began eating as clean as I could (had to have my nightly glass of "milk" as we call it at my school...) when I started cross fit and did really well with it. people were noticing a change in me... even better... I was noticing a change in me. I worked very hard at not focusing on the scale but more so about how I felt and the changes I could see with my body. I knew I was gaining tons of muscle so I didn't want to get defeated with a number.

Well, life and school for sure got in the way of all of this. April/May rolled around and we all know how the end of the year is + packing/moving campuses + preparing for summer school. Alright... YES, those are all a bunch of really lame excuses and someone should virtually slap me.

I mean... Can I get an AMEN to the quote on your left?! Sheesh. I sound awful!

All of that to say.

Tomorrow is the final day of summer school, which means endless amounts of time and ZERO excuses. I am already planning on being at my Box for 9 am class on Thursday... my first official day of summer! :)

I am ready to get back at it and climb the rope again! This was a GIANT for me, it was daunting me for months... and I did it! So, now to get back at it and do it again...and again...and again!

On top of getting back to the gym I am going to start my 24 Day GROUP Challenge with some friends. I love Advocare and all of their products. I love how I feel on (well... about day 4) the cleanse and the results I get. I am excited to do it with my sister and the whole Advocare team! It's a corporate challenge so it should be a big deal- lots of tips, recipes, etc! If you're interested in joining the challenge, comment or email me!


The more the merrier! I will be blogging about it for accountability and to share some scrumptious food I whip up! :)

Alright friends, I am up way past my bed time! I need lots of energy for my LAST DAY of school! :) I will be posting about grocery prep and other things later this week!

Enjoy your night!!

  1. Hi Lauren,

    As I clicked onto my Bloglovin' feed I was thinking about how unhealthy I have been lately, and that I might set myself some sort of food/exercise challenge. Then I read your post! You have inspired me to make a plan and stick to it. :)

    Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep!
