Hooray! My kickboxing Healthy Lifestyle challenge is over!I have my final weigh in Friday so I will let you know how much weight I lost! Not that having a healthy lifestyle will fall by the wayside. My friends and I plan on continuing this challenge for the next year. But more importantly I can now have a much deserved glass of wine. I actually missed drinking this month much less than I expected to.As for healthy eating, I have probably made this salad twice a week during this challenge because it is full of protein, good fats and tastes delicious! Even better, it keeps me full for so long!
