I cheated for my very first time on a 24 day challenge.  I regret it a bit…I”m usually super strict when I’m doing a challenge and have good willpower. My husband just got home from a 2 week trip yesterday and we took the kids to the Duke vs Univ of Kansas football game….then we went to Zinburger.  If you have a Zinburger near you beware….it is delicious!!  I had a 1/2 a hamburger and my husband and I split a salted caramel milkshake….at least I had enough self control not to eat everything!! Small victory right?!  Luckily I did workout earlier today before we left for the game.  My husband worked out with me, which I love.  I love being with someone that enjoys the same things I do and we push each other.  It’s so much more motivating to workout with someone else.  I generally work out by myself because most of the time with our schedules we can’t work out together.  I”m pretty self motivated but once in a while it’s nice to suffer with someone else 🙂  Here’s the WOD we did today:

For time:
50/30 Push-Ups
300 Meter Run
30 Heavy Kettlebell Swings
300 Meter Run
50/30 Push-Ups
300 Meter Run
30 Heavy Kettlebell Swings
300 Meter Run

My time was 15:34…not too shabby.  Tomorrow I think I will be hitting it a bit harder after some of the damage I did today :(.

Below is an article that one of my friends posted on Facebook.  It’s totally true about junk food being the much cheaper option than healthy foods.  Even though I try to shop smart and try to shop local as much as possible my grocery bill is crazy high!!  I can pay $3 a day for my kids to eat school lunches, but this year I’ve been choosing to pack their lunches.  I’ve been trying to get them into the habit of eating as healthy and organically as possible.  Thankfully I haven’t had any complaints so far!  Even thought it is time consuming and a little more expensive to make their lunches the way I’m happy that I’m instilling a healthy living lifestyle without the pressure of them ever “dieting”  This way it will be a way of life!  I still let them have regular chips or a piece of candy every once in a while, but now it is considered a treat!
