Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

84%--Time for the 25's Days till Christmas Countdown!

I'm giving myself an 84% for my effort at our 10-day Challenge. I started out strong...had a few weak days over the weekend and on Tuesday...but overall, I'm satisfied. I ate way better, I worked out on 7 of the 10 days, which is more than usual AND I got my hubby back into the swing of things, so it was certainly worth the effort!
How'd you do?
Even if you didn't do everything you wanted, did you at least still do better than you would have if we hadn't done this little challenge? I know I did.
So, are you ready for the next one? ;o)

You see...Tomorrow is December MUST do a 25 days till Christmas Countdown!!!

Here's our 3 goals:
*Work out 5 of 7 days each week.
*Eat consciously and health-fully at least 80% of the time. That means you can have about 2-3 "cheat" meals/foods (ie. desserts) per week.
*Weigh yourself at the beginning (Dec. 1st) and at the end (Dec. 24th). Goal is to not gain ANY. You don't have to lose...but don't let that scale creep up!

I will post this on Facebook too, so we can hopefully get a big group doing this! I would LOVE to have people post their progress on my blog so we can all see how each other is doing. If we all work together and hold each other accountable, we can all get through this Holiday season without having to loosen up our belts! Then come January 1st, we can work on bringing up the intensity (and tightening up our belts!). Right now, let's just focus on being diligent, consistent and dedicated! Leave me a comment if you'll at least give it a try! There is no way to "lose" except for those who won't even TRY!

Okay Jen, if you read my blog, I set my weekly goal of exercising 4 times per week, drinking 64 oz of water per day and eating 35 gr of fiber a day. And No Dr. Pepper. I will try to do the 5 days a week. I made it 6 out of the 10 days before Thanksgiving. Your challenge really helped me out. I have a Dr. appt in two months. So I don't want to just not gain... I have to lose before I get to that appt.

I'm in! I am back from my vacation and am ready to get back into the swing of things! I hope to lose by Christmas :) Only 4.4 lbs until I reach my goal!

BTW, my starting weight this morning was 135.
That means I've gained 6 pounds since I got down to 129 this summer. Oh goes on and the workouts are I'm on the right track!

I actually did pretty good on the 10 day challenge, and made it through thanksgiving without gaining.
Current weight this morning: 123.5 lbs. Hopefully I can make it through the 1st of January without gaining anything.....this challege will definitely help keep me on track!!!
