A Challenge for the End of the Year

So while I was playing on Twitter early tonight I found something that caught my eye. It was the Power of One Challenge at It is a challenge to keep you motivated to lose weight and possibly win some prizes too!

So, I began the challenge. I hopped on the scale and recorded a starting weight of 156.4. Hopefully it will be the last time I see this number, EVER!

Now on to the weekly challenge part of it all. I am supposed to let everyone know my healthy living goals for the challenge and for the New Year. It may be somewhat of a repeat of yesterday's post. 

My first healthy living goal is to eat better overall. To fill my diet with more fruits and vegetables, less processed junk. I also want to get away from eating "snacky" foods, chips and trail mixes. While I could be eating much worse things, these still aren't my best choices. 

Secondly, more exercise. Need I say more... I need more running and I would love to try some exercises that I have never done before. I would love to try yoga, pilates, and even a spin class. 

Third, more water. I drink water now, but not as much as I should. I tend to drink too much diet soda and Crystal Light, I need to break away from these bad habits!

And lastly, NO MORE EXCUSES! I have been trying really hard to leave the excuses behind, but I still find instances where I make them. I'm tired...I have to work...I don't have the time... 

I am going to take better care of myself. I deserve it. 

I am going to post a current full length picture tomorrow, camera is currently charging, and I do have to be up in 2 hours for work. Time to get some beauty sleep, good night all.  


  1. Awesome goals! I love them! You can do it and I can't wait to read all about it!

  2. Water is one of my big goals as well - we can do it!
