Good morning shrinkers! It’s the END of week 5!! HOLLA! How are you doing? Hangin’ in there? I hit a bit of a slump last week, but TORE up the scale this week with a GREAT loss. Happy day!!
Go hop on your scale and look at that (hopefully smaller!) number! If you’re a blogger, blog about your week, your progress, and stop back here to share your link. No blog? No problem! Just use the comments below to share your story. Make sure you give your fellow shrinkers a pat on the back or kick in the rear, depending on what they need! Ahem. I may be in need of a few kicks, myself.

Last week’s challenge was to reflect on your progress over the first month of the challenge. We really enjoyed reading everything you had to say!
This week’s challenge is to EAT ALL THE FRUITS and VEGGIES. Did you know the recommended daily allowance of veggies is 7-13 servings. It’s true. A serving is 1/2 a cup, and women ages 19-30 should be getting 2 cups of fruits and 2 1/2 cups of veggies = 4 1/2 cups TOTAL. Women between 31-50: 1 1/2 cups Fruits + 2 1/2 cups Veggies = 4 cups TOTAL. Women ages 51+: 1 1/2 cups Fruits + 2 cups Veggies = 3 1/2 cups TOTAL
How do you measure up when it comes to fruit and veggies? Do you get enough? Looking for easy ways to sneak them in? Here are a few yummy Smoothie recipes. And if you’re wondering about juicing, here’s a great article comparing juicing and smoothies!
All the other good stuff:
