Yesterday's Weigh In and New Challenge!

Shrink-a-Versary Challenge with the Sisterhood!

Ok...first of all let me just start by saying over at the Sisterhood we are starting a new challenge to celebrate their 1 year anniversary! I'm so excited about this because this is a challenge that EVERYONE can participate in! All you have to do is WALK, and log your miles and report in everyday! And we can even win prizes!! How cool is that? We win on their anniversary!! Usually the person celebrating the anniversary gets a gift, but not with these girls (and don't forget Brian)....the people participating WINS!! There will be other challenges going on during this time, too so if you get bored with just doing the same thing jump on the bandwagon and do some of the other challenges, too!

Anywhooo, yesterday was a crazy, busy day where I left my house at 9 a.m. and didn't walk back into it until 11 p.m. More about that later today or if I get busy tomorrow. I did manage to squeeze in my weigh in because it's important to me! So...
although it's not what I had hoped I managed to not get disappointed after looking at the numbers, and I logged them into my handy, dandy phone so I wouldn't forget cuz I knew it was gonna be that kind of day!

Weigh in for the beginning of this challenge : 197.9

That's .5 pounds up from last week, but I have been pretty bad and have indulged in a number of cokes! So...back off the cokes, girl and get those numbers down!

My goal for this challenge that ends on December 16 (perfect timing if you ask me) is to knock past that 30 pounds lost (2.1 pounds left to get there) and get down below 190! My original goal for Christmas time was 150 pounds, but that obviously was an unrealistic goal! I have to keep reminding myself that I didn't put this weight on overnight and if I want it to truly be gone it won't come off that way either!

I have a lot going on during this challenge -- another moving sale (next weekend if the weather will cooperate!), packing up the house we have lived in for the past 6 years and then moving to another community 30 minutes away! I also have to try to squeeze in some homeschooling for That Other Kid and all the other day to day "stuff" that a mom and wife does. BUT I have to remember I am important I'm going to make sure I exercise every night, too. I really do love that "me" time -- although there are some nights I just want to sit down and "veg out" in front of a movie or a good book, those days will have to wait a while longer. My health needs to come first and that can't happen while watching a movie or reading a book!

Hey Ann!! I'm so glad you're pumped about our new challenge! We are SO excited :) I'm also so very proud of you! Even though your life is crazy, you realize you need to make time for you, and that's so very important! If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy, right?!!

You're going to kick this challenge in the jeans, I just know it!!
