Exercise Motivational Quotes | 30 Days of Motivation: Eat Clean, Look Lean | PFITblogHi Loves! After coming off the long weekend – I need to be honest about a couple things.  First – I walked over 10,000 steps the first 6 days of September!  That was awesome.  I am still giving myself one day off a week and chose to use that on Monday instead of Sunday (9/6).  My daily average just jumped to over 10,000!  YAY!

Second – I gained those pesky 2 pounds back.  Damnit!  Its okay – I gained them in a weekend, I “should” be able to lose them in a few days.  Its a balance and to be honest – I love to over indulge way too much some times.  Its hard to find a balance between eating things you love AND staying healthy.  This is a struggle that I will probably always face.  I can also say that my water intake dropped over the weekend and I was drinking more soda – another personal issue.  I can’t blame anyone but myself but it seems when I drink more water its easier for me to avoid tempting foods.  Next time I’m away for a couple days – my goal will be to drink more water and less soda.

I’m working on a goal to get 10,000 steps a day for 26 of the 30 days in September.  So far I’m on track to hit that and (typically) take Sundays off.  I’m curious to see if I notice any changes.  I’m also picking up a new yoga challenge Sept 14 – I’ll fill you in about that next week.

Lastly – food.  Its a struggle (see above) but I’m going to look at a clean eating challenge for 10 days.  Since I’m a newbie, my goal will be one clean meal a day for 10 days. Can I do it?  Who knows… I’ll also keep you posted on that!

My September goals:
-26 days of 10,000 steps
-Fall into Yoga Challenge
-Clean Eating Challenge

Looks to be an interesting month for me!  Thanks for reading and I can’t wait to fill you in on the challenges once I learn more!
