Time flies!

Posted May 24th, 2010 by Liz Etherington

This challenge has been such a wonderful experience; I really can’t believe that the time has gone by so quickly!  I can honestly say that I was able to meet all of my goals and have gotten into a nice, healthy routine of exercise, mindfulness, and better nutrition.

  1. I am back into my pre-pregnancy clothes!!  I would still like to lose about 5 more pounds but I feel great!
  2. I have completed a bucketful of blood work and met with some great specialist that have provided my husband and I will all of the information needed to finally make a well-informed decision on whether or not to have another baby… not to say that the decision has been made but we now have all of our questions and concerns addressed
  3. I have also talked with some amazing counselors at Holt International down in Eugene and feel good about having some adoption options available to us as well

I absolutely will continue on with my daily Dixon routine – I have grown to love my afternoon break and so appreciate that this challenge has allowed me to finally get over there and find out what all Dixon has to offer!!  And I have found that being mindful of what I eat has really changed my food preferences overall – I don’t crave the greasy or overly sweet items any longer and I just feel so much better about myself at the end of the day when I know I have had my servings of fruits and veggies.

The people who have done this challenge with me are all amazing!  I feel very fortunate to have met and been able to work with each and every one of them… I have no double that we will all keep in touch and be there to support each other as we continue on in our wellness journeys.

Take care!
