Life has no limitations, except the ones you make.
Les Brown, author and TV personality

I am certainly the only person who can limit myself.  It is my fault if I don’t make time to run on the treadmill. It is my fault if I don’t push myself harder.  It is my fault if I give up.

This is my final post on my Living and Active 5 Week Challenge with  I have completed the challenge and done what needed to be done.  But, did I push myself as hard as I could have? A few times.  Did I take the easy way a few times?  Yes.  But, I did complete the challenge.  Do I feel or look different? Not really.  But, I can do more push-ups in a row.  I can run longer.  So, there was some improvement.  Do I need to keep pushing myself and go another 5 weeks?  YES!  Am I going to miss the accountability? Yes.  But, really, the only person I need to be accountable to is myself.  I know what I need to do. I just have to make the time and effort to get it done.

I’m thankful for the challenge to force myself to get active. Now I need to make sure my eating and my activity are in line with each other.  Some days I just feel like I break even.  With the holidays coming up, it will not be easy, but on those days where food, family and fellowship will win over…then I hope I at least break even!

Here is to finishing 2013 stronger! Still living with the motto:

    Hi, Stacie, I am here from Peak313. Love your blog look! 😉 Great job finishing the 5 week challenge! I offer seasonal challenges and we are in the second phase of our Christmas Crunch Challenge. It consists of several parts. The obvious ones being exercise, healthy eating and weight loss, but the one I love the most is the accountability and Christian encouragement. We have a facebook group
    and also a blog.
    I Would love for you to join us for the rest of the journey.
