2 Week Challenge

I need to challenge myself again. I am slacking off and I think it's because I am going on vacation in less than 2 weeks and I know I am going to be a very bad eater. I do know the consequences I am going to have because of eating crappy while I am gone and I am ready to deal with a setback and maybe even a weight gain. I will lose it again though it won't be the end of my journey for sure. Anyway, just because I am ready for that doesn't mean I can start taking steps backwards now.

So my challenge for the next two weeks

Stick to my calories and fat intake plan
3 Times a week at curves
Walking twice a week (30 min.)
Walking to pick Althea up from school
4 days of 15 minute toning exercises every night
NO stuffing my face over the next
2 weekends (big one for me)
Water, water, and more water

I am going to track my progress on the side!

Do you like to read?

I don't know where I saw this, so if I found it off of your blog let me know.
It's a free paperback swapping site.
You post the books you are willing to swap and when someone requests a book from you, you ship it at your expense (you earn one credit per book you send) But when you sign up and post 9 books to swap you get three credits (1 credit is good for 1 paper
back book). When you choose a book to be sent to you the owner of that book sends it to you at their expense. Its cheaper than buying the books (way cheaper) and it is free to sign up (for now, they might start charging a small yearly fee in the future)



If you sign up through the banner I get 1 credit!

Someone asked me if the freebies that I post require you to complete sponsor offers or pay for shipping. The answer is, no way! I have only posted stuff that is totally free! I have been getting free samples of tons of products for years. Most of the time when I fill out a sample request form I get the sample, sometimes I don't. I do have a separate email just for samples because you will get some junk mail for sure. I should of said that when I first started posting freebies.

push, push, push.

you can make a difference these upcoming 2 weeks, and that may help minimize the damage your vacation has on your weightloss.

i had a "vacation" about 14lbs into my weightloss. i was so primed to hit a 15 lb loss that i enjoyed myself but not to the point of disaster. i totally ate what i wanted. had plenty of desserts and all that.

when i came home and got on the scale, i believe i was only up a lb or so and that turned out to be water.

i share this bc why re-lose weight, you know? its hard enough to lose it the first time, right?

I think challenging yourself for the next two weeks is an awesome idea! It will probably help you stay more focused and mindful when you are on vacation too!

The apple snack sounds yummy and just in time for the fall season - a bit of a "festive" indulgence without a lot of extra calories.

**waving pom poms** as I cheer you on for your challenge! :)

Hi there, new here just wanted to say hi...

Well tame your perfectionist side by knowing that you don’t need to finish everything in one day. Praise yourself for keeping on task and getting a lot accomplished. Carry over the goal setting into your personal calendar as well.

Holiday weight loss tips are used to avoid weight gaining during the time of holidays. Everyone feels that the holidays are meant for relaxation only and they don’t prefer to practice exercises. Due to this, excess weight will be gained by your body. Over weight will create an inconvenient feeling with in you and it also creates several health problems.
