Challenge of the Day – Day 22 FINALLY!

Next time I say, “hey wouldn’t it be fun to do a challenge for the next 3 weeks!!” somebody please shoot me.  Coming up with 22 challenges (okay more like 17) was a…challenge.  But here we are at the last day, and my challenge for myself is an important, albeit difficult, one:


And by junk, I mean M&Ms, chocolate covered macadamia nuts, cream cheese mints, white chocolate pretzels, regular chocolate pretzles, mini Snickers, mini Milky Ways, mini Twix…good gravy it’s no wonder I gained 6 pounds!! But I am getting rid of all of that today, and stocking up on healthier fare. I’ve been perusing Roni’s Green Lite Bites for inspiration and am excited about trying some of her recipes (yeah, I know I’m way late to the party, but better late than never!).  So if you have any leftover Christmas goodies, get rid of them today. Don’t think about it, just do it!

Happy New Year’s Eve!  🙂


Challenge of the Day – Day 20

Today’s challenge is simple:  30 minutes of cardio.  I plan on doing 30 minutes on the elliptical this afternoon when I get home from work.  It’s been a lot easier to talk myself into working out since my new work out buddy arrived on Dec 24th:

Philips GoGear 16 GB Aria MP3 Video Player with 2-Inch Color Screen

I have decided that it’s a lot more fun to work out when I have the music thumping inside my head, as opposed to…say, the ancient boombox in the garage.
