14-14-14 Mini-challenge for Thanksgiving--Day 14 11/23/11

Thursday, November 10, 2011

I got this from the 14-14-14 Mini-challenge from KANSASROSE67….


There are 14 days left before Thanksgiving. The mini-challenge:

~Eat under 1400 calories every one of those 14 days

~Run 14 miles every week during the challenge, no matter what the weather!

~Post a different status each of the 14 days naming something I'm thankful for.

My accountability will be that each day I'll edit this blog, telling how I did and adding an emoticon for each challenge met.

If anyone would like to join me in this mini-challenge, let me know and I'll do my best to support you! I am not a Spark Nazi...you do not have to run 14 miles...you may walk, or do 14 reps or 14 minutes of something. Whatever you want...make it your own. Have fun! And if you see that I'm slacking, feel free to give me a nudge (or a kick) in the right direction!
