Challenge with BEATLETOT

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

I am going to do a challenge with SP friend Brenda. To lose 10 lbs by February 12, 2012. I don't know why she picked the date. Maybe because it's 8 weeks... I can't remember. Anyway, I will start off tonight by getting my measurements and tomorrow I'll weigh in. I will take a body pic and post it once a week.

Brenda is setting some rules like minimum exercise amounts and eating a salad every day, so I am going to start off with some RULES for my challenge, instead of setting goals for this month.

Challenge Rules:
1. Post 1 photo per week
2. Take weekly measurements
3. Exercise 10 minute minimum every day.
4. 10 glasses of water every day
5. Communicate 5x a week with Brenda
6. ST 3x a week

So that's all I'm going to set for now because I really think the challenge of losing 10 lbs is going to be tough enough!

Since it is December, I will just quickly address my November goals:
1. Workout at least 4x a week emoticon
2. Pack lunch 3x a week emoticon
3. Organize pantry emoticon
4. Get renter's/ring insurance emoticon Whoops, no one mug me! I blame this one on John, because I can! He's a procrastinator!
5. Lose 5 lbs emoticon I gained about 3 back emoticon

Ahh, so moving on!

Things have been ROUGH at work. I'm beyond annoyed with almost everyone I work with. I am looking forward to getting away for the holidays, but ten days on the East coast might be kind of ROUGH too. Last weekend John and I went and met up with my mom in Vegas because my aunt had all these time share points that were expiring. So we got to stay in awesome adjoining suites (it really was sort of ridiculous for only 3 people) and my mom only annoyed me like 12 times over the two days. So that's something. emoticon

    Thanks, ladies!
    Work is just frustrating because the only person I really get along with is moving to the Michigan. The other 2 girls are in the process of interviewing (although one is trying to keep it secret from me but I found out because I'm not STUPID) and I am frustrated if they leave because my boss takes forever to hire anyone, all the work is going to fall to me, and WHEN I eventually leave next year it's going to be put me in a tough spot with my boss if 3 others have left right before. But I can't worry about that, right?

    Yeah hey! What's going on at work?

    Also, I need to add accurate tracking to my rules.

    This is going to be so much fun! I'm copying your rules, too, and adding in my salad rule.

    I chose that date, because it's the earliest date that A could theoretically move to be with me. We bought the house with the First-Time Home-Buyers' Tax Credit, so we have to stay in it for three years, and we closed 2/10/10. Now I don't remember if I said 2/10, 2/11, or 2/12...I'll have to go back and look!

    He was planning to come in early April, so I was going to add 10 more pounds from February to April, but he's taking this so hard, he may move ASAP, so we'll have to see. Now that I'm here, I'm not taking it hard it all. =)
