As I blogged about last month, I am trying to challenge myself to get healthier and feel better for SoFabCon coming up this May. SoFabCon is a Social Media Conference put on by Collective Bias, and it will be held in Bentonville, AR this May 8th-10th. A few bloggers that are planning to attend and some Collective Bias employees have embarked on a challenge called Feelin’ SoFabulous for SoFabCon to improve themselves in some capacity before the conference. I am taking part in this challenge, and as I stated in my first post, here are my goals: Goals Before SoFabCon: 1. Drink more water each day! 2. Start Yoga (which the doctor said I am allowed to do) 3. Count my points again and truly work the Weight Watchers Program 4. Feel better and have my clothes fit better 5. Feel SoFabulous by losing 20 pounds by SoFabCon! It’s been one month in and I’m reporting here on my progress. Unfortunately, I don’t have much to report on. As I mentioned in my earlier post, I have back issues and the flare ups lately have been pretty nasty. It’s kept me from not doing as much outside of the house. I see the spinal surgeon next week, so I am hoping for some answers! As for the water intake, I am working on that. I love the flavored seltzer waters! They are EASY to drink and tasty too!
I hope to have more to report next time. I want to do better with eating less processed and healthier food options and hopefully have some WEIGHT LOSS to report to everyone. One other aspect I did work on to make myself feel just a little but “SoFabulous,” was to try a new updated hairstyle. I went for copper and blonde highlights with layers. Anything you can do to make yourself feel good is a step in the right direction! I’m a work in progress, but happy with who I am even if I don’t completely reach all my goals. Healthier is better though, and I know this! I want to be around longer (for the parts I can control) and feel good for my kids!
