oh hey, friday | let's talk more about me working out

Oh, BRB.
I FORGOT it was Friday.

While I type my post though... you can go ahead and get linked up!


OK = I'm sure you guys are sick of hearing about this fitness challenge... but I'm telling you all to keep ME accountable. ha.

So here is what I have been up to for this first week...

1 | pictures
You might not think that taking pictures is much of a workout, but you are wrong.
I swear I am sweating after doing it.
But it is definitely worth it, even after 400 photos.
Just look how cute....

2 | in actual workout news
We have a big circular drive way that is basically a track.
Six laps = 1 mile.
Since all of our workout equipment is packed up waiting to move into a new workout room (once our current office is moved out) using it isn't an option.
So I run.
AND I have never liked to run.
So far I have run one mile a day... which i know sounds pretty pathetic.
I am hopeful that by Monday (the start of week 2) I will be running two miles.
And perhaps by week 6 I can run 6 miles!
I will just have to figure out a different way to track my laps because surely after 10 I will lose track.

3 | food
You guys... I have been so diligent.
I haven't eaten a carb all week long.
And I finished off my bag of chocolate chips the night before the challenge.
Speaking of chocolate chips... I used to put them in the freezer, thinking that if they were frozen I wouldn't touch them.
That mind trick did nothing.
I would still hammer them.
BUT, no more chocolate chips. Or kettlecorn.
And guess what?
I'm juuuuust fine.
And I feel great actually.

Although, making two dinners every night is kind of obnoxious.

4 | injury
I would really like to be doing some other sort of weight training.
But that hasn't been in the cards for me.
MY ARM!!
It hurts so bad.
It started on Saturday, and was just kind of obnoxious.
By that night it was pain throughout the whole arm.
I googled it and legitimately thought I was going to have a heart attack.
Yea, I'm one of those people.
After I realized I was going to live, I realized it is more localized in my shoulder and collar bone.
If I can ever find a spare minute I need to go see someone.
I'm just not sure who to go to.
A doctor? Chiropractor? Masseuse?
I really don't know.
And honestly I'm just hoping it feels better magically.

5 | goals
My goals for the coming weeks are as follows:
- run more laps
- do more weight training
- meal prep ahead of time
- get abs

There you have it!

Ok, friends.
Have a super weekend.
Link up!

oh hey, friday | LAST CHANCE fitness challenge

I'm doing a little room reno in our master.
And by "room reno" I mean, I bought a planter and a plant.
BUT, I have big plans for the future... that include a new love seat couch in our little sitting room.
And the way that I am going to purchase that couch???
Winning a little fitness challenge I am starting.
Obviously.

I am not sure if you read my post from Monday, but things are about to get real here.
Real serious.

Fitness challenge will commence on Monday the 20th, and I'd love for you to join!
Turns out in order for me to get motivated to get fit, I need friends on board doing it with me, AND a chance at a cash prize at the end.

Today, I am going to tell you FIVE reasons you should join in:

1 | It's practically summer. 
The sun is shining, and shorts are calling your name... which means swim suits are whispering your name. This competition will run 6 weeks, so when it is over, you will be ready my friend, and feeling extra confident.

2 | Comradery.
We are all doing this together. When it is late at night, and you want to go to the freezer for those chocolate chips that you put there so you wouldn't eat them (but it NEVER stops you)... you know that Sally across the country is holding strong, and not eating any chocolate, because she wants to beat you at the upcoming weigh in. Damn you Sally!
Not sure if that is comradery, but it is nice knowing you aren't doing it alone.

3 | Competitve.
Everyone has a little competitive nature, so that's all.
It'll be fun.

4 | Prize!
You have the chance to win a big chunk of change.
That's always a bonus.

5 | Bod.
And guess what... even if you don't win the cash prize... but you fought like crazy... you still have a rockin' bod. And that, my friends, is what I want more than a couch.

So let's get rockin' bods together!


For the details again, here they are...


Here is how it is going to go down.
Biggest loser style.


-- Every person puts in $20 via PayPal.

-- The challenge will go for 6 weeks.

-- Every person will send a picture of themselves on the scale every Monday. (Feet only... so you need to be honest... no stacking books on your head to start or anything. Also, take a front and back before and after picture... you will want this to compare your end results to... no need to share them if you are uncomfortable though.)

-- I will keep everyone updated with a weekly spreadsheet of each person along with the percent of body weight lost... I won't share your actual weight with the group.

-- At the end of the six weeks, the person with the highest PERCENTAGE of body weight lost WINS all the money.


Sounds like fun, eh!?
I don't care how you lose the weight either.
As long as it is healthy of course.
But, I am certainly not here to sell you anything... except a fun challenge.
You better believe that I am going to be competing too... otherwise I would have zero incentive to do this.


Here's the kicker... we need to spread the word!
The more people that sign up, means the more money you could win.
Share this blog post with your friends, mom, co-workers, etc... or just give them my email address and I will get them set up.

a fitness challenge | let's win some MONEY!

Ok, here's the deal.
I need to lose 10 pounds.
I could even lose 15, and if I happened to lose 20... I wouldn't be mad about it.

I have found that the best way to do this however, is motivation from others doing the same thing.
SO, I have a wild idea... that will be so so fun.

oh hey, friday | on the road

Hi friends.
I am on the road today.
We are heading to California for my grandma's funeral, unfortunately.

She happened to be this blog's number one fan.
And to say that she will be missed is an understatement.


If you feel so inclined to link up today, have at it!

I will most likely need some reading material for our drive.
