Hosting a Challenge For Myself...

Okay, so I've done my fair share of whining. I had a day off to do some planning and shopping. It's time to make changes. Thank you for the suggestions. I've ordered my new running shoes. I've got a smart phone on the way (will help with calorie tracking).

I like weekly challenges. It keeps things from being too overwhelming and keeps me focused on one area that needs improvement. I loved Mir's challenges. The accountability of posting weight and measurements really appeals to me and my need for proof.

Weekly Check-In will be on Sundays before midnight, come hell or high water. Lord knows I spend enough time on the internet, I can bang out a blog and really take a look at my week of eating. Weekly Check-In will include: Weight, Measurements, Reflection/Learning, Plan for the next week. 

Here are the goals by week.

I reserve the right to change goals, though I will not allow myself to make them easier. That is 22 weeks and honestly, my scope of 22 weeks is probably off and I will waiver. But this way, I've created a plan that I don't have to think super hard about. No decisions to be made. Just follow the decisions I've made already.


  1. You sound like the Nanette I knew a short time ago. I am glad you are getting serious again. Sometimes we just have to wait until something "clicks". Looking forward to all the good news that is sure to come! Take care.

  2. I like the idea of tracking by doing taking 100 calories away each week. I think that's do-able. I might do it too now that I think of it. Be flattered, good ideas are meant to be stolen. LOL

    Good luck!

  3. Sounds like a great plan. You can do it.

  4. Nice to see you back. I'll be watchin'. ;)

  5. Winderful to have you back!

  6. Looks like an awesome plan! Way to go you!! :)

  7. I'm really glad you liked my challenges. I'll probably do another for 2013, but probably not until after February, as I need to focus on writing. I have a published author who will critique 50 of my pages, and I need to finish a rough draft. I'm a slow-butt writer, so I can't commit to anything for at least the next two months.

    But I do need to reinvigorate and remotivate, so I see a challenge in my near future. :D

    Babycakes, I hope you rock your goals. Come on, you CAN CAN CAN. By Valentine's day, let's see you well down into the 200s. come on!!!!

  8. Good luck Nanette. You can do this. I know you can. Keep going and you will see yourself in the 200's again soon.
    Take care and have an awesome new years!! Blessings!!!

  9. Nanette!! LOVE your goals!!! One week at a time. Attainable!! and I love your comment on my post!! Your goal is less!! I love that!

  10. That looks like a great plan. Can't wait to see how it all plays out!
