Talking 21-day Challenge!!!!!!!

Posting a 21-DAY CHALLENGE to myself and anyone who feels in the mood to attempt this really awesome feat! (It's really hard!!)

Ok, ONE MORE TIME! We all know the drill on the 21-day challenge. This is for extra focus and support and not meant to compete with any other threads. Post a behavior or behavioral set that'll help in reaching your goal. Do it for 21 consecutive days. If you slip up, you have to start counting the days all over again, do not pass go, do not collect $2,000!!!! When you get to 21 days, you ... well, you get to 21 days and then you ... start over again with the same or a new behavior! You make all the rules for your own challenge.

Well, there you have it!


I first heard of the 21-day challenge from Wood Nymph Arabella, who has finished a number of them here on 3FC, I believe! I've been trying to do this for more than a year on this and nameless other forums!!! THIS TIME I INTEND TO SUCCEED! I'll ante up in a separate post, so I can use more smilies!

I'll join you Amarantha!! My challenge is this: NO FAST FOOD! I have more I'm working on, but this would be great to get this bad habit out of my life! In fact since I haven't had any today I call this Day 1 a success!

Welcome beledigirl! Sounds like a good plan- what kind of dancing do you do? A great way to get those exercise minutes in!

How's it going for you today Amarantha?

So far so good for me today with no fast food! Easy too since I haven't left the house today I guess that's one way to get to 21 days!!

Going on a road trip tomorrow so that will be the true test. I'll still be able to check in later in the day after we get to our destination. SO c/ya later

Yo! Welcome beledigirl!!!! I'd also like to know what kind of dancing you do!

Jelynn: Hope you have a great fastfoodless trip!!! Stay strong, 'cause it's a jungle out there, Pilgrim!

Since I'm working 90 minutes away this month, I guess every day is a road trip for me also and I'm happy to report that I passed with flying colors, buying only some single-serving Baked Lays to add to my stash of protein shakes and bars up there.

Calories for Day Two: 1570

On to Day Three!!!!

We're in steady state!!!! Wooo-hooo!!!!

I'm a day or two late on this, but I'd love to join.

My goals-
1. Work out for at least an hour every day without deciding that it's fun to just sit back and watch the workout vids instead of actually doing them- I do well with pilates but the yoga and bellydance ones always hit me with the "how do they do that!?" or "you want me to what?" roadblocks.

2. Dig out my WW point plan books and actually use them for 21 days too

I'm doing it! I am so proud.. I plowed through 2 of my pilates and yoga DVDs, and had to stop myself from overdoing it before my muscles caught up with me. I forget how much of an endorphin junkie i can be I was also inspired to pull out a bellydance vid as well. I am feeling like a overcooked piece of asparagus right now, and can't wait till tomorrow!

(note: the WW books have gone MIA, but I sucessfully managed to not devour all of my sons Elmo fruit snacks.. small victories rock )

Yo!!!! Ending Day Three at 1755 calories!!!! On to DAY FOUR!!!! Very pleased with my calorie adherence during a stressful production day. Dinner with publisher so satisfying because she is a healthy eater and I didn't feel the usual pressure when dining with associates to order sweet, fatty and caloric stuff because they are. Had a simple grilled chicken breast and tomato slices. Really pleased with my choices today!

beledigirl and Mistao!!! The bellydancing sounds fun! You guys are doing great!!!!

We're moving on around that 21-day challenge block and we're gonna OWN it!!!
