My personal 8 week Challenge

So DH and I are going to Amsterdam in November...Nov 20th to 30th. That gives me 8 weeks, short a couple days.
So I have challenged myself!
Here are my goals:
1. Lose 10 pounds2.
Eat no take-out
3. Miss no workouts
I have my 8 weeks worth of workouts ready and planned (weeks 5-12 of www.fityummymummy.com).
I have the first 4 weeks written on my calender so I know what workout what day. I am using my whiteboard to record my wieght loss and measurements.
I don't have my menu completed like I would like but the evening is not over yet..:)
So any support at all would be greatly appreciated from all my friends both near and far! Wish me luck

Ok seriously....

How's it going? I'm well. Managed to get back to the gym in 2 weeks this time, instead of 2 months. I'm happy with that. LAst night, after watching Biggest Loser, I got motivated to hit the gym, which I did..at 7pm..:) Here is the program I am doing right now.


It's a 15 minutes workout, 6 times a week. Short and sweet.

My friend Chantel is almost at her 90 pound mark...and I am soo soo soo proud of her. She keeps me going whenever I think "Fuck it, why bother?" I think of her and she keeps me going. She doesnt even have to say anything, she just has to exist..:) I love her so much and am very very very very proud of her!

I was reading in a magazine about writing memoirs so that your family has a written history of your life. I really want to start doing that. I want Sophi to have stories to tell her kid and grand-kids long after I am gone. I read that the trick is to not think of it like an autobiography, but rather as little snippets of your life, little moments in time that are special. I really want to do that, but like everything else, I am a perfectionist, and I think if I can't get it right, then why do it at all? But something is better than nothing, and I want my family to know who I was and what I contributed to the world.

So here is my first memoir..:)

This morning I was watching a youtube video of Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers "The Card". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnYPXZvCc0I It was about a couple who were using the bank machine for the first. Of course it's a funny video, but when they came to the part where they said "the key chummy", I just about peed my pants laughing so hard. I guess ya have to be a newfie to find it really funny....I was laughing so hard I was crying! Then when I came to work I was telling a fellow newfie about the video and he laughed almost as much when I was telling the story....newfies are too frikkin funny!

OK...I'm done now....ttfn!
