Strong to the Finish Challenge – Week 11

Hey hi hello there!

I came to the realization today that this challenge is so appropriately named. It really is about being strong to the end, and I am nearing it.

Week 11 was the hardest, in part because my diet has become increasingly difficult, and in part because I know only a tougher road lies ahead. But, I’m also feeling accomplished. I’m all like ‘dang girl, you said you was gonna do it and you are!’, and that’s how I encourage myself when I am hungry and tired and in dire need of cookies.

If you read my last post then you know I had my last treat meal over the weekend – it was EPIC. I was worried I would wake up the next day feeling bloated, but it’s like my body absorbed it all and used it in every nook and cranny I needed it.

Now I know it’s just mind over matter for the next week!


While on vacation I managed to eat perfectly fine, aside from my treat meal, and we also even managed to squeeze in a workout! Thank you GoodLife Kelowna!


I know this next week is gonna be hella challenging, so I feel like I will probably check in at some point just to bring myself back to Centre.

Dieting is hard. In some ways it goes against what I believe. But in other ways it embodies it. Dieting is all about willpower; it’s about accepting a challenge and rising to the occasion, despite any obstacles or temptations.

On a broader scope, I guess that describes transformation itself: it’s work. A lot of people don’t want to believe that. They want to believe that change happens to you . No – change happens because of you. 


I don’t want to be too repetitive with the food pics so here is one I didn’t include in my vacation post – arugula salad with tomatoes and prosciutto! I’m dairy free and gluten sensitive and this is how I survived in a pizza joint haha!

This next week is all about staying present, mindful, and positive.

Thanks for reading and supporting me as always. You are all wonderful.

    1. Thank you so much! I definitely see myself doing a challenge again. This fitness challenge has made me realize that sometimes we need to find motivation for ourselves! I would love to try 30 days without sugar.
