Chanukah Bombshell Challenge Start

Monday, November 07, 2011

OK, so SWEETNSKINNY invited me to join her in her Christmas Bombshell Challenge. Well, I changed the name to fit my needs!! I thought it would help me out. I'm not putting a number on this, just to get back into a pair of jeans I bought & haven't worn yet. Sad, huh? So, today was so far so good.

Breakfast: bowl of oatmeal w/ raspberries
Post run: greek yogurt w/ sugar free jelly (YUM) & a handful of almonds
Lunch: sushi form the market (in a rush)
Snack: coffee w/ diet hot cocoa & a handful of popcorn
Dinner: bar-b-que tri-tip (crockpot!), salad & 1/2 tortilla
Snack: handful of almonds, banana, candy cane green tea (thanks SWEETNSKINY!) & peanut butter & oat bar (while I watch House w/ my boys later)

I think I did ok today. Oh, I forgot, I did have one mini peppermint patty. I just couldn't resist. So, here is a pic of me in the jeans I would like to fit into:

Looks fine with the sweater covering me.

Now, here's without the sweater:

Rest assured, the muffin top is hanging over and I can hardly breathe. My goal is to fit into those jeans comfortably!! Wish me luck everyone!!!

Until tomorrow-

    OK, another friend has challenged me to 60 minutes of exercise everyday of December... and I'm going to now call this my Chanukah Challenge, too ;-). (I'm doing quite well-- and it's amazing how a 'challenge' can get me unearthing all my exercise videos and home equipment, etc ;-). And hmm, I've got a pair of jeans that are a tad 'snug' when sitting down.... so I'm good for this goal too!! Love your Sparkpage, and all the hiking you've gotten in with friends and family-- think tomorrow I'll head up our hill on our Western PA farm ;-). Saw your response on the SparkJews page, responding re/ BirthRight.

    I love Greek-style yogurt too, btw-- I've found I can make my own that turns out *amazingly* well every time, using Activia yogurt as my original starter (LAST February... it just keeps on working, perfectly!!).

    Best luck in your Chanukah Challenge-- I'll check back in to see how you are doing!
