Hey there! 
Welcome back to MMM. Our 5TH link up!
If you're new go HERE to learn more and please join us:)

This week was BAD for me. I didn't get to the gym Thursday OR Friday. I seriously felt like crap all weekend. I didn't have an awesome excuse as to why I ditched out. I just pushed snooze to many times and didn't get my butt out of bed. As soon as I woke up I knew it was going to be a bad day. You would think since I did that Thursday I would have been totally energetic Friday and be motivated to make it up.....but no. I decided sleep was a better option. In turn resulting in yet another regret. well...I did OK on what I ate. I made the banana ice cream again. SOOOO GOOD! Go here to try it out!

Last weeks challenge: drink 8glasses of water a day. AND KEEP TRACK! 

I did pretty good at this! I actually kept track with a little notebook:) but there are other ways to keep track if you don't want to carry around a little notebook. 
I like this idea! I may try this instead:) I like to have a visual rather than relying on my memory. I would also reuse all the water bottles the next day to do the same thing!! 

A few fun facts about water
 Water is absolutely essential to the human body’s survival. A person can live for about a month without food, but only about a week without water.

Drinking water can significantly reduce joint and/or back pain.

Water naturally moisturizes skin and ensures proper cellular formation underneath layers of skin to give it a healthy, glowing appearance.
Water leads to increased energy levels. The most common cause of daytime fatigue is actually mild dehydration. 

Drinking adequate amounts of water can decrease the risk of certain types of cancers, including colon cancer, bladder cancer, and breast cancer. 

Water is the primary mode of transportation for all nutrients in the body and is essential for proper circulation.
 Whenever you are at a restaurant try and remember these words...
I'll just have water please!
 -good to know:)

I did good this week with drinking my water mostly because it was our weeks challenge. Getting enough water is always a struggle for me. I will keep trying and keep you posted!! 


 ok so this week is turkey day!!! I want you to BE GOOD. 
Watch your portions and only eat the foods that are special Thanksgiving traditions. Don't bother with the foods you see all year round(skip the chips). also get plenty of exercise this week to make up for the extra calories that are bound to come on.
Stay focused and let me know how you did on next weeks link up:)

love you all
