That's another .6 down. At least it's down! I wish I was doing better, but I totally realized when I signed up that it would be hard for me because the first 3 weeks of this challenge were filled with eating events. I'm really trying hard though (as in eating only half of my fab anniversary dinner). As I thought about all this I realized, if nothing else, Fight to the Finish is keeping me in check and I haven't gone completely hog wild so right there I have a victory don't I? There's Fight left in me yet!!
That weigh in photo also serves as my weigh in for My Long Hot Active Summer Challenge sponsored by the lovely Exquisite Christine!
Remember how I mentioned I really wanted to get in better form by July 17th for Mr. Helen's All Class Reunion? Well, this will help. Also, my history indicates that I do really well with exercise and eating in the summer. Maybe because I love summer so much - I just feel very hopeful and light and happy. All of those things make it easier to stay on track. One of the things that we are asked to do is to post beginning pictures so that when I post my ending photos I have something to compare to, so here goes.
Sigh. My first thought after seeing these was when did I turn into a rectangle? I used to have the cutest figure. My second thought was that for someone who was pretty much anonymous for the first 8 months of their blog, I sure am letting it all hang out!
Finally, the Fabulous Fitcetera bestowed The Incredibly Prestigious OH MY BLOG! Award on me. Can you BELIEVE IT? ME?!! Especially since I'm certainly not as savvy as Karen is (she did a VLOG!).
Here's the legal stuff:
1. Get really excited that you got the coolest award EVER!
2. Choose ONE of the following options of accepting the OMB award:
(a) Get really drunk and blog for 15 minutes straight, or for as long as you can focus.
(b) Write about your most embarrassing moment.
(c) Write a “Soundtrack of your childhood” post.
(d) Make your next blog a ‘vlog’/video blog. Basically, you’re talking to the camera about whatever.
Mimi at 1972: The Retro WW Experiment. Mimi is trying to take off her last few pounds using the 1972 Weight Watchers program. Her blog is fascinating, disgusting, and hilarious all at once!
Journey Beyond Survival. This woman writes beautifully and is living through a very, very, VERY hard disease with her baby. Somehow, even in her darkest posts, I can't help but root for her. I also have an ulterior motive in that I'm hoping she'll finally show her beautiful face to the blogging world!
Rita at The Giggly Bits has lost a whole bunch of weight and is in the process of transforming her whole life. She has not only gone back to school, but has changed herself from an overweight couch potato into an athlete! I'm linking you to her birthday post from yesterday, just because you need to see the photos.
Like I said before, for someone who was anonymous for a looong time, I can't believe that between challenges and awards I have now pretty much completely exposed myself!! I hope it hasn't changed your opinion of me (unless it's for the better, hee hee hee!).
How are you challenging yourself these days?
