I will give this challenge a try. My goal is to walk 500,000 steps as per my fitbit in the next 63 days and to log my food at least 55 of the next 60 days. I actually log my food on a different site but I will count that.
current weight: 219.0

Day 65 of the 72 day challenge until 2013 ~ 10/27/12
I cannot believe there are ONLY 65 more days until 2013
Good evening everyone and Happy Saturday 10/27/12
It is Saturday, and I went grocery shopping for califlower and the like and even purchased a food processor by black and decker. This weekend I am going to make pizza from califlower. I am so excited as I continue my NEW journey of making healthier choices.
Thus far in these past 7 days I have given up bread and replaced it with lettuce. :) And on the weekends, I go pick up a large pizza for myself at the pizza place but instead I went online to look for healthier substitutes and found one. It is making a pie crust out of cauliflower. I was amazed.
Day 69 of the 72 day challenge until 2013 ~ 10/20/12
Good morning everyone and Happy Tuesday 10/23/12
yawning, woke up late this morning but thats okay :)
Last night I had the urge for a hamburger that is cooked on a barbegue grill, so I drove to a hamburger place at 1am and ordered me a hamburger with cheese, lettuce, onions and tomato with NO BUN and I got it home and it was wrapped up so pretty and was absolutely delicious, yeh!!!!!
I am so happy that I was able to endulge in a craving and STILL stay on point, wow!
I mean it is day 4 and I am still ON plan with no cheats and that my friends IS a miracle! It is making me feel like I can actually COMPLETE this 72 day challenge, yeh!!!

10/22/12 = Monday, it will be only 70 days left until 2013 10/21/12 = Sunday, it will be only 71 days left until 2013. 10/20/12 = Sat. Did you know that we only have 72 days left until 2013?
Today is day 3 of the Challenge and I am getting a bit nervous inside. why? Because I do not have a good track record of sticking to something and I think that I am going to fail again ... but somehow this is 'different' and I am pleased about that... just a lil nervous is all.
be back later to update

***** I call small tiny meals "snacks" because it is so small. I am not used to eating small but day two on my journey, I do not find a need to stuff myself until oblivion any more. So i really like the small meals too.

Wow, it is 72 days until 2013...... where did the time go?
TIME stands still for no one.
so... I have to ask: HOW are you going to spend these last few 72 days left?
Will you just goof off and think: I will start on Jan 1st?
Will you plan today, right now, this very moment to do something specktacular in these remaining 72 days until 2013 flourishes a new dawn?
My answer: I choose the later one.
To take the bull by the horns with NO excuses, NO delays and make a change.
How will I accomplish this?
By counting back-wards, so I will "see" how many days to the finish line It makes it fun to set short goals and see where you are headed and that is what I will do...
am I nervous about it? yes as I am not usually a person who sticks around a plan for more than a week but this time will be different....
why? Because knowledge IS power
Because knowledge IS empowering.
what inspired me?
lately in these past few days I have been reading an article from the NEW YORK TIMES. Yes I said days... to read one article... because the man talked a lot! and because it was really interesting reading:
Do you know what this feels like? It feels like the day after Thanksgiving and we are standing in front of the stores in an internal panice realizing we only have a few more hours until they open the doors and thinking to ourselves: OPEN, OPEN, OPEN! so we can HURRY and catch all the sales in that small, tiny, time period. LOL
So everyone, there is ONLY 72 days left.... whatcha gonna do?
Make a decision.
please whatever you do, make a conscious decision and take responsibility of what you are going to do with these remaining 72 days starting today!
Make a decision! Work it girlfriend!
The choice is up to you what to do with your time..
Good luck everyone.... let's get a crackin'
Time will pass whether you do something or not... so lets make use of our time more effectively for 72 days together, shall we?
please do not make me come look for you to inspire you LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

Time will pass whether we do something during that time or not... so why not DO something about it together? :-) it is a brief challenge so we can do this!
10/20/12 = Sat. Did you know that we only have 72 days left until 2013?
10/21/12 = Sunday, it will be only 71 days left until 2013.
10/22/12 = Monday, it will be only 70 days left until 2013
what are you going to do to help yourself reach your goals in the days remaining :)
whatever your GOAL is... we can do it together
Whether it is to:
* lose weight * walk a block more than you are now * floss more * eat healthier * read more * work on obtaining a more positive attitude * better grades in school * deep condition your hair more often * declutter and organize your office or home
your GOAL can be whatever you want it to be...
you can document it here and watch yourself blossom
and each time you reach a daily goal or weekly goal you can put this mark on it
