100 Days Challenge

Posted on: February 12, 2017

” Enough is Enough”

was my first thoughts when I saw these blog photos

I took on Saturday!  

I can see the weight gain everywhere, my face, arms midsection…. 

There is no way this is going to be my sister’s legacy!  

Menopause resulted in a gain ,so there is no room for this emotional eating ,

that has been going on since December!  


As a woman who promotes “Self Care” I am not beating myself up and am not even , 

upset at myself for where I am currently.  

My sister’s  sudden , unexpected and unexplained death would send anyone into a whirlwind , 

and I absolutely have allowed myself that, but now it’s time to get back on track!  


I took my thin gold chain off my Sapphire pendant and added my sister’s more 

substantial one , so when I wore the cherished gift from my husband this day, 

I felt extra special.  I swear this picture just doesn’t do this lovely pendant justice! 


Outfit Pieces 

Faux leather front Diane Gilman Leggings 

Vionic ankle boots- sold out 

Naturalizer crossbody purse 

Slinky brand top – similar 

Susan Graver Cardigan 

Now On to my 100 Days Plan!  

I am going to try the Weight Watcher’s Simply Filling method where you eat foods only 

from this list and no measuring or counting points.  

I will be starting a Simply Filing Board on Pinterest and link you to it soon. 

A Sample Menu Plan I’ve made for this would be: 

Breakfast :  Veggie Omelet with fat free sharp cheddar  plus strawberries 

Lunch-  Hard boiled egg with Salad Greens- cucumbers, tomatoes , artichokes and fat free feta w/ Italian Dressing 

Dinner :  Grilled Chicken with sauteed mushrooms,onions and spinach plus  grilled zucchini 

Snacks:  Apple / Greek Yogurt 

One way to make this easy to stay on track is for me to stick to Salads Everyday for Lunch , and 

perhaps making a veggie soup to have for a few dinners and just add a different protein each day.

I will stay on this Simply Filling Plan for two weeks before changing to counting points, unless

I like it , everything is open to how I am feeling along the way.  

Exercise Goals for the 100 days :

Monday :  Treadmill or walk outside 

Tuesday: Pilates machine with resistance bands

Wednesday Treadmill or walk outside 

Thursday : Yoga

Friday:  Treadmill or walk outside 

Saturday:  Pilates machine with resistance bands

Sunday– stretching and rest day

Good for you, Tracey! And I like your attitude: allowing yourself to realize that you had ample reason to get off-track, yet setting a doable plan for change. Best wishes!

Thank you! My father’s legacy in just the 13 yrs I had with him is strong. He took me on walks and told me to be my own best friend and I take that to heart and remember it often.

It’s good you’re not beating yourself up, but ready to tackle a goal!!

Did you already start this? I’m in!!!!

Starting Tomorrow!! Monday, February 13th! Glad to have company, look forward to hearing how you are doing , so please comment along the way!

Count me in! I literally just laid out a plan almost exactly like yours to my husband. I am also not beating myself up about the weight gain. It is what it is and some has been beyond my conttol. But that changes now. For me it’s more about how I feel than how I look. We are much harder on ourselves. I think you look great.

thanks, yes no beating yourself up , just move on….
