The Challenge

Are you up for it?
It's awesome. It changed my life. I'd been on a plateau and after doing this in the weeks before Christmas, I lost almost 10 pounds and am going strong (well, except for that devil sugar-and I am working on it).

My friend, Monica came up with this. I will forever be grateful. She is probably one of the healthiest and most positive people I've ever known. She's always wearing a smile.

I almost didn't join her challenge, because we had a vacation and the holidays coming up.
(And lazy, oh am I lazy.)

I am so glad for that little push inside me that said, "do it!"

Here are some of the things we are going to do to earn points everyday:
excercise 30 minutes a day
one dessert a week
no soda/sugary drinks
no eating after 7:30pm
reading on chapter of scriptures or a book that makes you want to be a better person
a weekly challenge
and a bonus item worth points each week
We are starting January 3rd, 2011.
If you are up for this- let me know! Email me with your email address. You can find my email on my profile or you can decipher this:    143themrs{youknowwhatsigngoeshere}gmail{dot}com

Look forward to hearing from you!

Oh, PS-you should probably know this-I am letting a lot of my friends know about this also, so you might be getting an email from me with a different address on it.
And-the winner of Monica's challenge came up with a chart to track our points and shared it with us. I'll be tweaking it a bit and getting it to everyone who does the challenge with us.


  1. I think it's awesome that you're doing it again, and so soon. I for one am taking a break though. I need to give up my 6th day of working out for a bit. :) Good luck, you are awesome!

  2. A chart would be very helpful for old-headed me!

  3. I am so in!!!! This is just the type of challenge and accountability that I need!


So glad you've come to visit!
I'd love to hear {read};) your thoughts!

Again, I haven't written in a while, but I don't want to forget this one. It's a doozy. I work in an elementary school. I teach ...
