Smile Golden Girls First or Fourth of July Challenge

Hi Everyone,

In an effort to inspire us to eat right, exercise, and have fun, I am proposing a new challenge - the First or Fourth of July Challenge. Challengers may choose to end their challenge on either the First of July (Canada Day) or the Fourth of July (Independence Day). Here are the rules - Beginning this week, and for every day until the end of the Challenge, challengers must post a message that includes 3 things.
1) their meal plan for the next day
2) their exercise plan for the next day
3) what they plan to do for fun during the next day

In the first post, please include whether you will end your challenge on the First of July or the Fourth of July. If we get several folks in each group, we might even end up with an inter-group challenge!

The challengers with the most posts will win a prize.

Lynn

I have a evil twin that loves competition and I want to join too but I have two problems. I'm pretty much at my goal weight and I don't plan my meals the day before. DH is retired and we don't have a scheduled life, can I just post my menu the day after?

Hello Everyone!

I would like to join in this challenge too but like Bobbi I will need to post my meal plans the day after. And when we leave to go back East I don't know if I can get connected everyday BUT I have a spiral notebook with me that I will be keeping track of everything and can add it when I do have a connection. Will that work for the challenge? I don't want to mess things up but just thought that I would ask before starting.

Everyone have a good day! Karen

Default Tomorrow

Hi Golden Girls....I was afraid I had lost the thread But after giving up hope here you are!!

Good News.......FINALLY dropped another 2 pounds...(Seems like it took a year

Since I'm not proficient enough to do the wt tracter, I'll just enter the short note. 235/193/155

I love the recipes that are added. I'm still more on the medially supervised fast than off....so my menus at this time is pretty boring and much the same every day.

Tomorrow's menu:
5 program snacks
Dinner: 6 ounces broiled fish and 1/2 cup sugar snap peas

16 ounces green tea
24 ounces soda
40 ounces water

Exercise: 30 minutes recumbent cross trainer, 30 minutes walking

Fun for tomorrow: reading diet recipes from You on a Diet, blogging and planning the next weeks menu based on a new recipe for turkey burgers!
