I Am Going to Do a Challenge :D

I have decided that the time has come to get myself embroiled in a challenge. I didn't feel as if I wanted to before this but now I feel ready to go for it. The thought of the pressure of it no longer makes my heart race or my eyes shrivel.

I am joining in on Kandice's Summer Challenge .

My goals for this challenge are pretty simple.

1. Exercise. Got more of it as weather and migraines allow.

2. Stay on track throughout the challenge. I would very much like to go the full challenge without one day over 1800 calories. But no beating myself up if I go over.

3. Weigh weekly. This is a no-brainer, as I have to weigh in weekly to qualify. I am hoping that actually making myself get on that scale once a week will help get me over this silly block I have about it.

4. Hydration. Keep up staying hydrated. It really does make a difference in how I feel.

So, there you have it. :D

***Reminder to myself: First weight in is Monday the 24th.*** :D


I am having a good day, today. On track and feeling pretty fine. I haven't been sleeping as well as I would like. I am hoping that I will konk out good and hard, tonight. That is one of my biggest gripes about this time of year... For some reason, my sleep patterns go wonky on me and I sleep like shit during warmer weather. Frustrating and my dark circles are out of control.

I just want to take this opportunity to say how much I adore all of my followers who stop in and read and who comment. I don't always respond in comments. I suck at it and often feel it is better to stand mute than be seen as the dumb-ass I really can be. lol But I read and appreciate every comment you leave me. I often find myself nodding in agreement, smiling and laughing. I just *heart* all of you.


  1. The Summer Challenge sounds great!! Keep us updated :-D
    I was also amazed at how supportive and just all around wonderful the blogging weight loss community is. It is so helpful and really gets me through the hard times.

  2. I know you'll kick proverbial a$$ in the challenge. I'm not so hot at comment responding either so usually try to acknowledge them in the next post. Or in my comments on their blogs.

  3. I am doing a challenge too and it is helping me stay motivated. Looking forward to seeing you succeed!

  4. This challenge sounds good and your expectations are reasonable and realistic. You'll do great!

    I sometimes find myself wordless when it comes to responding to comments on my blog too. Sometimes the comments say it all, and really don't require a response.

    We all *heart* you too! :)

  5. I think you'll do great at the challenge! I'm not good at responding to comments either. Can't always think of anything to say.


Talk to me! :D I love comments, enjoy discussion and debate. I wear my big girl panties and welcome constructive criticism. I do not accept anonymous comments. Not because I can't take the heat. I can. It is because I believe that if you are going to say it, you need to have the balls to put a name to it.

Please do not spam my comments. If you would like for me to check out your blog, if you follow me/have me on your blogroll and would like me to follow you/add you to my blogroll, please shoot me an e-mail with your blog URL. I will come visit :). Same goes if you are a company or PR. Please shoot me an e-mail. You can find my address in the contact tab at the top of my blog page. Thank you. :D
