day 42!

This is the last day of the 6-week challenge!  Congratulations!  I'm eager to choose a winner for the vitamix, but I should give people at least a few days to send in their progress reports.   Send them to  Here's my progress report:

My goal was to eat only healthy food and don't overeat.  I started the challenge early so mine lasted 48 days.  I misbehaved 5 days out of 48.   On four of those days, I overate on fruit and nuts.  On one day, I ate some unhealthy food too (darn it!).    So I achieved my goals for 43 days out of 48.   That's good but I think I can do better.  I'm ready for the next challenge!   My goal for that challenge is to optimize my protein as I'm trying to get stronger at the gym.  And of course, to eat only healthy food and don't overeat.

I think I will start a short Oct. challenge, and then do monthly challenges until it gets old.

I have to admit that I cheated on the last day. It is my birthday, so my husband bought me a single serving size of chocolate cake. It was a rich cake and I had a little. It was excellent, but too rich for me. I didn't want it. WOW, what a change for me! I ate a little to be polite and threw the rest out. I never would have imagined that I would get to the point where I didn't want chocolate cake! It was just too sweet.
