Mayday! Mayday! Holidays are attacking!

This fall has been a baaaddd one for me-- overeating and not exercising. I wondered if anyone else was having a hard time and what they do to fight it.

Rachel (our #4) is home and baking like crazy. Previously I had kept bad snacks out of the house. Now there are fresh baked goods, my Achilles Heel, regularly appearing on my kitchen counter.

My very own evil Nemesis is myself! What do you do to fight back?

Tammy's 30-day challenge

I thought I should do my 30-day challenge in a seperate post. My challenge will be to eat 5 servings of fruits and/or veggies a day. I really need to increase this part of my diet. I am going to put a chart on the fridge and everytime I have a serving I will mark the chart. This will take some planning to make sure I alway have some fruits and veggies on hand.

P.S. I started going to the body cuts class on Tuesday mornings at 9:30. It has been awesome and I have lost 3 lbs already. It is every Tuesday from 9:30 to 10:30 at the Y. You can go at your own pace and the class is big enough that no one is staring at you.

Let's get this blog going!!

Hey everyone, I have been thinking of how to use this blog better. I enjoyed my 30-day no sugar challenge and I thought we could do a spin off of that. So here is the idea, think of a 30 day health and fitness challenge for yourself. It could be more exercies, early bedtime, less sugar, more water, anything that you want to work on. Everyone can have a different 30-day challenge but during the 30 days we all blog about our successes, our struggles, our motivations, etc.

If you want to join this first 30-day challenge, think of you challenge, blog about it, and we will start it a week from today, October 21st.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Church ladies walking...around and around and around

Hi all,
Beginning next Tuesday, Sept 15, at 4:00pm and every Tuesday afternoon thereafter at 4:00pm, Vivian and I are going to be walking at the church (gym) for probably 45 mins or so. Who would like to join us? It'll be a free-for-all fun and fitness walk. We'd kinda like to keep it with no kids, though, since they're so noisy and distracting in the gym. Anyway, if that works for anyone, please join us!

Sugar-free Challenge - Day 20

I really, really want a yummy, sugary treat tonight. I miss sugar. But, I am still at it. I have so much more energy and, not to get to descriptive here, but my digestive system is much happier. I really haven't lost any weight which is disappointing but hopefully that will come. I have started to phase in sugar once or twice a week. I want to live like this forever more and I worry that once September comes I will quickly go back to my old habits. If I can have dessert twice a week, the hard days will be easier because I know something yummy is coming. I have already planned a yummy lemon cake for Sunday dinner. Can't wait.
