Red face Anyone want to start a 30 day challenge?

Hey everyone... just wanted to see if anyone would like to start a new self challenge, whatever personal challenge for yourself is fine, and we can check back in here for team support?

My personal challenge is to stick to the McDougall MWL Diet (book) for 30 days at least 98% of the time

I'm in.
My goal is sticking to my work out schedule of three times a week or more. @.@ I use to be so active...I can't believe how hard it is to get back into it.

I'd love to! I want to lose at least 10 pounds. I've been trying the Jillian Michaels' 30 day shred... I can get about half way in before I feel like dying. I also want to eat healthier.

Side note, Sakai... LOVE your avatar... I'm obsessed with penguins, lol.

I was very bad today. I had a friend come over and we made veggie nachos... which wasn't TOO bad... but I dunno, after she left I looked in the fridge and the really good hot dogs were calling me... so I had two. Bah. And a salad. I'm so baaaad. I hate myself. My self control is zero.

Anyway, I plan on doing as much 30 day shred tonight as I can. I have a good soreness in my legs from yesterday... I kinda like it because it makes me feel like I actually did something.

Hope you all had a great Sunday! <3

Michigan Jen-- Sorry you had a 'bad' day Do you like the turkey hot dogs? Those are much better nutritionally, maybe trading them out would help you not to feel bad when you eat them?

I started a blog today, I did one before and it helped me stick to plan:

Veggie hot dogs!
I tried the veggie hot dogs (I think they were vegan even) And guess what....it tatested like a hot dog @.@ Kinda makes you wonder what they put in the meat ones. So I don't think we'll be buying anything other than the veggie hot dogs when we want a treat like that.
This past year and half I've been working on becoming a vegitarian. I've tried more new things this past 16 months than I have in a long time. Though I still eat meat, it's nowhere near the amount as before. I'm also wanting to stick to a whole food diet...but baby steps.
I exercised today! so I'm off to a good start.

I'd love to join! My goal is to get on the elliptical at least once a day every day! And to limit myself to 2 diet cokes a day (with breakfast and dinner) and the rest of the time drink water!

Sakai-- great job! Yeah eating less animal products really can help on a diet and with health

Sacal96-- Glad to have you! One thing that helps me drink more water is drinking 2 32ounce waterbottles a day, instead of 4 16ounce bottles... lol its funny but it really helps, and whenever I want something yummy to drink I have a Crystal Light.


Sheramama-- Sounds good! I want to lose 15lbs too! Hopefully we will reach that goal together!!

Hope it's not too late, but I think it'd be fantastic to join as well.

I'd like to make sure I go to the gym 4x a week, and don't break my healthy eating. It's simplistic, but in light of my recent habits it should make a biiig difference.
