Mischo Beauty Challenge Update: "A Healthy, Sexy & Beautiful 2011"



So as you all know by now I kinda, well sort of, fell off of the "A Healthy, Sexy & Beautiful 2011" challenge. I had the very best intentions, but circumstances out of my control dictated otherwise. You see, a few months ago, I found out I was blessed with a little bundle of joy (as you can see in the photo above of my friend Shalon and myself) and I realized that I was no longer in control of my eating habits (no morning sickness - thank God!) and energy levels (experienced extreme fatigue) for the first few months.

And yes, it's the reason for the break away from blogging.

So to quickly update you - my eating habits have returned to almost normal, my energy levels are pretty much back on track (given the circumstances) and thank God for prenatal yoga (a life saver) classes twice a week! I'm still using my pedometer (just walking) and trying to get in as many steps as I can daily - and believe it or not, drinking 96 oz of water (has to be ice cold!) daily is a breeze - I pretty much crave it!

Now that you're all caught up with me - it's your turn! Have you been keeping up with the challenge?

This is such wonderful news. You look amazing!
I was wondering where you were & if you were coming back to your blog. Surprisingly I have done well with my challenge, I drink 2.5 to 3 liters of water a day, take my vitamins, and I gave up soda completely. Now if I could find time for a yoga class :/ Congrats again!

I was wondering where you went?!!! But I kept checking bc I was for sure you hadn't fallen out of love with blogging and I wasn't giving up on you. Congrats on the baby bundle- what a blessing! I have 3 little ones and can tell you first hand they are worth falling off the eating good bandwagon- because you can eventually jump back on it!! You look amazing- glad you're back!
