I really want to challenge myself this month (even though I'm going on holiday for one week of it) and I think posting on here will help me to stay on track and stay accountable for my actions and choices. So I figure I will post the conditions of my challenge up here for you all to see and update my progress (with fun smilies) as each day goes by.
If anyone else wants to create their own challenge for the month then please, post and keep us updated on your progress, there is nothing like a nice support network

6/11 - I only got 30 mins of ex

I'm really pleased that I've stayed on track the whole week! I couldn't do my gym ball ex's because I lost the pump but a new one is on order so I'll get that in when it comes. Now for another perfect week!

uh, bad post holiday day... my excuse is that I'm still working on egyptian time.
My holiday went well, I didn't over indulge too much, I did treat myself nearly every day and I enjoyed some tasty wine and beer, but overall I think I've done really well
Well, I weighed in at 200lbs today!!! That's a loss of 6lbs and I'm really pleased with how the challenge has gone so I'm bopping on over to the december challenge and hoping I do just as well this month
At the end of the challenge I hope to have instilled some great habits and to be fitter and healthier and hopefully weigh less!!
