August is not over yet, so i will blog about what i accomplished after today.
I tried to start a challenge in one of the private teams i'm on but i had no takers. So i extended the invite out to a bunch of my personal friends and i have 14 girls doing it.
Here's what it is basically...
Hey peeps! We're coming up on the last quarter of 2012. Can you believe we only have 4 months left of 2012? Well I've decided to host another challenge...but not a Biggest Loser Challenge. This challenge is called: Create a New You for the New Year! This is all about weight loss. There's no eliminations. 100% challenging yourself to make and meet your personal goal you've made for yourself. So how does this work? Tell me your current weight, and your goal weight for December 31st.
We will begin September 1st. Then you'll just send me your weight on the following dates: 10/8, 10/31, 11/22, 12/25 and 12/31. Each month I will give you a fitness challenge...just to keep you going. If you're in let me know by 8/30 and send me your current weight and goal weight. No one will see your weight but me.
So who's in?
9/1: Starting Weight: XXX
1/1/13: Goal Weight: XXX
Create a New You for the New Year!
9/1 Schools' in Session! Weight:XXX

My goal by 1/1/13 is to be at 219 - a 100lb loss! My September starting weight should be right around 262ish, but i'll find out how i ended August tomorrow morning. But i should have around 43lbs to lose in 120 days. That means i'm looking to lose 10.75lbs a month for the next 4 months. VERY doable.
September 2012 Goals!
* Lose 10.75lbs
* Complete 100 walking/jogging/running Miles
* complete my Race for the Cure 5k on 9/29 in under 50 minutes
So, i blogged about a week ago about how i can not fit into size 20 jeans. Well, i hit up Avenue two nights ago and their athletic Capri's were on sale for $9.96 a pair. I started out at a 22/24 a few months ago, and about a month ago bought some 18/20. They didn't have any 18/20's so i picked up a few pairs of 14/16 for the upcoming months! I was kind of excited at just the thought of being able to fit into them in the next few months. Don't get me wrong - i know they are stretch pants but that still means i went down a few sizes for that TYPE of clothing! So you negative people - just keep your trap shut. My jeans are my true test of going down in size, but its still fun for the other clothing as well.
When i held them up all i thought was that they were so tiny...then i thought, "OMG! That means at some point my large ass should be tiny!" Oh ya!!!
I love Halloween. I always have. I haven't celebrated Halloween since my exhusband left in Oct. 2007. Last year was the first time i went with a friend trick or treating for her daughter. But this year i'm in full gear and already planning my costume. I'm making it but i wanted to show you all what it's basically going to look like...
Here's my inspiration:
As you can tell from the picture it's a witch. BUT i'm not going as a witch. I'm going as a renegade dark angel.
So i bought this from Torrid and i should receive it in the next two weeks...my top
I will change out the ribbon for something dark gray
Instead of the orange and black tulle skirt, i'll make mine in various shades of grey...like this but long like the original picture (short in front and floor length in back)
I'll wear black combat boots with ripped panty hose...
I'll have this with me...
My make up will be a cross between these two...
And i'm considering making wings like this...
SO basically i'm making my own skirt and wings. Everything else i'm either buying or already have around the house.
