30 Day Challenge #2


wpid-30_day_challenge.jpg

Hello everyone,

It’s a cold winter morning and I have just the thing to heat things up.
It’s my second 30 Day Challenge.  This month my goal is to lose 5 pounds.
Sounds simple enough right, smaller goals are more attainable than looking at a big number.

Let’s call this month Five Pound February !!!  It’s a short month so I really have to push myself to get it done.

Just use the comment box and keep in touch.  It doesn’t matter what form of weight loss diet you are doing, just as long as we do it together.  🙂

Five Pound February Goals:

  • Lose 5 Pounds
  • Drink 3 liters of water a day (1 liter = 1000 ml = 33.814 oz)
  • Exercise 5 times a week for 60 min or longer
  • Eat plenty of green leafy vegetables
  • Weekly Weigh-In

30 Day Challenge


30 Day Challenge

It’s a New Year and some of us have New Year Resolutions to lose weight and get fit.  Whatever your New Years Resolutions are here’s a 30 Day Challenge to keep us motivated.

They say it takes 30 days to create a habit, so why not create a good habit.  By starting with a 30 day challenge, it’s baby steps to get to our ultimate goal.

For myself I have to get back on my low carb lifestyle and really stick to it.  I’m going to be strict about it because I know that’s what works for me.

So who’s with me??? 

On February 1, 2013 I’ll begin another 30 Day Challenge and I’ll keep doing this until I get to my ultimate goal. *Crossing fingers* I hope to get there before Summer 🙂

I have a countdown counter to count the days so please feel free to leave comments on how you’re doing.

Fit for Fall Weight Loss Challenge ~ Week # 1~ Weigh-In


Well this first week started  off really badly even though I had great intentions of eating right and working out daily.
Monday night I was hit with the beginnings of a cold/flu.  My kids were so kind to share their germs with me 🙂
All I wanted was to stay in bed and drink tea and soup.  Mind you that staying in bed all day didn’t happen since my kids needed me as well, we drank  every type of herbal decaffeinated tea and chicken soup.

The only exercise I did this week was a spin class Monday morning and many trips to the pharmacy 😦

To my surprise I’m down 1.2 pounds this week!!  I guess a liquid diet is a great way to jump start a weight loss…LOL

Fit for Fall Weigh-In:

Starting Weight: 158.6 lbs
Total Pounds Lost: -1.2 lbs
Goal Weight: 148.6 lbs

Sept 10-16 Week 1: 157.4 [-1.2 lbs]
Sept 17-23 Week 2:
Sept 24- 30 Week 3:

How was your week?

Wishing you much success and happiness!
