Talking Get Me Through Thanksgiving Challenge!!

To keep myself from gaining weight and keep myself accountable I came up with this challenge and I already completed day 1!

1) On Holiday Dinner days I will not log my Thanksgiving feast. Mostly because it will be impossible to figure out exactly what I have eaten and also because it's discouraging. I will still log my calories for the meals I eat at home that day and watch my portions (and avoid high calorie side dishes like casseroles, etc).

2) I will workout for 1 hour for 7 days. I did day one tonight (because I attended a family dinner today) but you can start when you would like.

3) I will log each day saying whether or not I completed the day's challenge to keep myself accountable.

I have a jar that I put a dollar in each time I workout. If I complete ALL 7 days (or should I say when) I get a holiday bonus of an additional 7 dollars. If I miss even 1 step on any of the days I will not receive the bonus.

All are welcome to join me. I just really needed something to keep me motivated.

Let's do it!!!

Sorry to hear you're feeling under the weather, Avezy. You're doing great with your challenge. Since you're feeling sick, you might think about skipping the makeup workout. 2 hours seems like an awful lot of exercise when you could probably use the rest.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday!!
