Here is the 3rd 30 day challenge check in. All you need to do is comment on this post to let us know what one new thing you did for the previous week. It would be great if you could blog about it on your blog, link to the main 30 Days to Better Healthy Living Challenge post and then drop the link to your blog post here in the comments. Don’t worry if there is a delay, I usually have to approve them. If you don’t have a blog, feel free to just comment with the one new thing you did this week.
Did you step out of your comfort zone and try a new workout? Make a new healthy recipe? Whatever it was, let us know about it.
Third drawing will take place tomorrow (Wednesday) from all who check in to win another fun prize.
You can read all the challenge rules in this post. Hope you’re enjoying the challenge.
This week, I’m sad to say that the back issue was not resolved so I didn’t participate once again. Unless of course it counts that we bought 2 spin bikes and a treadmill and are starting to plan out the design of our new home gym garage space. So excited!
I also had a box of goodies sent to me by Snackwell’s for review and they offered to also do a goodie box giveaway for one of the challenge participants.
The newest Snackwell’s treats are so good. The Fudge & Rich Vanilla Creme Brownie Bites and the Fudge & White Fudge drizzled caramel popcorn packs are TASTY! I like them because they are quick and a controlled portion. The ingredients are not the best but once in a while, I think a special treat is just fine. My favorite out of them all is the Fudge Brownie Bites. Thanks Snackwell’s for the sample boxes and prize donation. You rock!
I made my first “green smoothie”. I named it a raspberry/ spinach smoothie. It turned out really well, so I’m going to make more green smoothies in the future.
Exercise wise, last week I mostly just walked. I had one monster day during which I took 15,204 steps! 🙂
I hope your back gets better soon.
So glad to hear you made a green smoothie. YUM! And congrats on your monster walk. That is great!
This back issue is really no fun. I so want to get down there and hop on the treadmill or spin bike but it hurts so bad. I’m off to use the heating pad.
Thanks for checking in!

Here is my checkin for the 3rd week 🙂
Last week was tough due to vacation and I ate a lot of bad foods (Actually by Friday I was so sick of the bad crap I actually wanted a salad). My lifestyle change for the week was to be more active. I was so active while on vacation and I am trying to keep the momentum going here at home too. Bike riding, walking, swimming, etc…. Keeping active helps me stay away from the food and well keeps the metabolism higher!!! Looking forward to hopefully going swimming on Thursday!
Both of you win this week! YEA!
Dawn you win the Snackwells goodie pack and Satu wins a $10 itunes gift card from me.
I’ll be in touch for contact info. Congrats on your success this week.

I didn’t do much of anything last week because of my leg. Was supposed to play softball Friday night but couldn’t because of my leg. Had an all day softball tournament on Saturday that I did manage to push through the pain and play 3 games. The tournament was a little bit out of my comfort zone because there were some people there from my past that I didn’t want to be around/deal with…but I went and dealt with anyways.
Hoping your leg heals quickly. My back is still sore but I did a small workout today and spin over the weekend. Hope it’s all on the mend so we can get back to our workouts.
I’m proud that you went and dealt with it anyway. Good going!
Aww- missed my check in. 🙁 Forgot. Well- I am still on my new weight loss plan- and it`s working awesomely. I tried to get the right amount of water daily, but I didnt make it. This week I am running a 5 k saturday, and starting with a strength trainer on Mondays.
And I did not weigh in this week either. I have this fear of the scale. I can`t beat it. I dread seeing the number go back up- even though I am working hard I have it in my head that might bounce. ^sigh
