Default W.O.W. July 4th Challenge

just a quick start thread.

Sorry it has taken me so long. Its been a long couple weeks here with the dang flu. Everyone is back to normal now. AND I made it to the gym tonight!

Emily~Your baby will be here soon!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For any newbies, the traditional copy and paste:

Women on... WHAT??

Okay, let me explain that "Women on WEED" is not what you might be thinking. During previous challenges, a group of us formed a great bond, and we've been challenge buddies ever since. We use the word "WEED" as a mnemonic device to set daily goals, an easy and very specific way to remind yourself during your day to take care of your body, and to nurture your Mind, Mouth and Muscles... it really does help. After all, we are all taking this a day at a time, right?

If you join this challenge, you will see it often - and you are encouraged to give it a try. Here's what it stands for:

W - Water intake. Set a daily goal for how much water you're going to drink. Although there is conflicting research as to how much to actually consume in a day, we all agree it is important to drink lots to stay healthy. So make it a goal!

E - Exercise. Efficient, healthy weight loss isn't going to happen unless you incorporate some kind of physical activity in your life. Everyone does it differently; some go to the gym, some work out at home, and some find ways to sneak in little bits of exercise all throughout the day. Set yourself a goal, even if it's small. Little bits done often WILL add up over time!

E - Eats. Being that we all have different eating plans and weight loss philosophies, this is sort of a wild card. Whatever plan you're on, set yourself a plan-appropriate daily eating goal for the day. Don't forget to make it specific!

D - Daily goal/Daily affirmation. This is another wild card. It doesn't even have to be weight-loss related! This is the spot where you list something you want to get accomplished. Or, you can use "D" for a a daily affirmation - it's an opportunity to say something good and positive about yourself. Sometimes, when we fall short - and we ALL do sometime - we are tempted to berate ourselves. Although it's good to recognize when we don't reach our goals, it's also good to remind ourselves of the awesome parts of ourselves. So go ahead and remind yourself of that in the "D" part of WEED.


Well here it is! Jump right in, tell us about yourselves, your goals, your home lives, your healthy plan, etc. We LOVE newbies! And we LOVE our regulars! Welcome back!

Hey ladies!

Emily, mother of 2 boys (4.5 & 2.5) with a little girl on the way any day now. I work full-time outside the house, like reading, music, camping & hiking. Looking forward to losing this weight for good once baby girl gets her adorable bottom out of my body!

Jeni - yay for good days, keep it up!

Mavis - enjoy your vacation!

OK, I am back and ready to go!

45 years young today, DH took me to the beach in SC for a few days to celebrate. Had a great time, made mostly good choices food wise but still bloated as crap due to the sodium in eating all meals out, the heat and the flight. Drinking tons of Crystal Light to flush it all out!

W As much as I can get!
E Ankles are like snausages, doing arms today, that's it
E POP got it!
D Keep the great vacation mojo with me!

Jeni and Emi, missed you !
