Day 1: Pete Cohen’s 28 Day Challenge

Today is the first “official” day of Pete Cohen’s 28 Day Challenge for the Mamavation Mom applicants. I have to say, I’m pretty excited about this…. I’ve never had a personal weight loss/life coach before so I’m totally feeling like a celebrity. I consider Pete a life coach because he’s helping us to not only lose weight but make life changes that will keep the weight off. He’s helping us to change the way we relate to food and how it relates to us on an emotional and physical level. That is huge!

Last night we had our first meeting and it was so fun. Technology is crazy cool! Anyway, during that meeting, Pete extended several challenges to us:
1. Find time for ourselves and just relax
2. Give ourselves permission to have a bad day
3. Reduce sugar intake
4. Live like the person we want to be
As part of the program, I’m going to start tracking my food and exercise again. I had stopped because it became a tad bit tedious (and probably boring for those who were reading it) but I really need the accountability.
So here goes…
