Lifestyle Challenge Updates

Hello Readers,

I have so many posts to write and I’ve been too distracted/lazy to get them out. I look at a computer all day at work and honestly I don’t want to look at one when I get home. I just need to make more of an effort.  Without further ado, here are the latest updates.

Bring your lunch to work challenge:  I’m still doing great on this challenge.  I’ve had days where I’ve forgotten my lunch or didn’t want what I had, but I’m still bringing my lunch to work at 95% of the time, so that’s win-win for my health and savings.

Finance challenge: I refinanced my house at a lower rate and saved myself two months of mortgage payments. I put my tax return into savings. I got a raise at work! Bam!  Of course, my retirement accounts took a huge hit due to the damn market free fall.

Fitness challenge:  I’m still going to the gym.  My aunt and my best friend think that I don’t eat enough.  Another friend says that my face looks thinner and stomach looks flatter.  I also did a two week diet cleanse to really kick start my fitness goals.   I’ll be writing a review on that cleansing product.

Skin care challenge:  This challenge has been the most difficult. I have acne-prone, combination skin and eczema.  One little ingredient can set my skin aflame or cause a massive breakout.  There are dozens of skin care companies out there.  I’m just glad that companies like Sephora, Nordstrom, and Space NK are so damn generous with samples.  I have a ton of product reviews posts to write.

Right now, we’re still working on these four challenges.  Maybe in May, we’ll add another challenge.
