February 21

I did it.
I signed up for the 21 day challenge from Dustin Maher.
He's the guy with the nice eyes that created Fit Moms for Life.

What does that mean?
It means that I've got to work my booty off so that on February 21, I can show off a trimmer, healthier me. 
Really Dustin?  You think I can look different enough for other people to notice in only 3 weeks?  I admit, I'm skeptical.  Dustin is a trainer and has a big following of women that believe in his message.  

Since I'm skeptical, I have 2 basic choices.  
1) I can sit back, cross my arms, roll my eyes about ANOTHER trainer with ANOTHER program that doesn't really help people.
2) I can try it.  I can prove for myself that it does or does not work. Here's the thing though - if I don't do it how he says, and I don't change my body - I can't tell people it doesn't work.  I've got to actually do it, and the way he says to do it - to know that it works.

One minor problem for me: Dustin's diet offers meat and dairy products - those are the things we're cutting out at home.  We'll be sticking to our vegan commitment at home and adding in the specific exercises that Dustin recommends in his program.

So - later today I'll be posting some "before" pictures. I look like a stay at home mama with a new baby.  I suppose that's expected, but I think I can do better!

My stated goal for February is to lose 10 pounds.  I think if I really stick with this program, I can achieve that, mostly because I don't exercise at home as much as I should.

What do you do to help keep your body healthy? 


  1. You can TOTALLY do it! :) Get that booty moving!

  2. Good luck! I know you can do it. Make sure you pump up the veg protein sources. Thinking of posting my Mock Fried Chicken recipe soon. (Totally vegan and scrumptious).

  3. Best of luck! I think 10 lbs sounds like a reasonable goal :)
