Is this the time of year you throw in the towel and say you'll start again in January?

Well Ladies, tomorrow is the end of another challenge. I hope you have all tried your best. I know things are busy, keeping a balance is hard and yes, the holidays are around the corner. Did I forget to mention cooler weather often brings out the desire for comfort food. Sometimes a few rough days can get us off track and then we decide to throw in the towel until the new year....

I'm here to entice you to stay on track and stay strong all the way through. So for this next challenge that will start on Monday I'm putting up a little incentive. Like the BLING?
I sure did, enough that I went back to H&M on a special trip just to get it for one of you.

Here are a few important things to note:
1) We will start on Monday and end Thursday November 4th. That is 18 days.
2) You will have 1 1/2 free days. That means that one day that you're good all day but then indulge in a dinner or desert doesn't completely blow your good effort at the beginning of the day. Questions on that? Contact me.
3)You can only claim 5 days of exercise in a week. Why the change? First, Most of us are church going people on Sunday who consider it a day of rest. I don't want people to exercise on Sunday that normally would not just to get points. Second, I believe your body needs rest. It's important for your muscles to be able to recover and for you to be able to have some flexibility in your schedule.
4) If there is someone that you haven't seen participating lately and you know them, see them, talk to them, please let them know. I don't want anyone giving up and being frustrated in January when they decide to start again. We are a little blogging family. Let's look after each other.

I can't wait to here from you and keep this ball rolling all the way through the holidays.

P.S. I don't plan on doing incentive every challenge but there will be more...keep going, hang in there.


  1. Was #3 for me?

    I'd just about decided to quit worrying about exercise on Sunday, anyway, so we are zoning in on each others' brain waves on that one.

    I was thinking about the holidays today, and I think I'm going to declare, for myself, the 8 to 10 days at the end of the year FREE DAYS, staring Dec. 24th and going to Jan. 2nd. But I'm keeping at it until then, and hoping I can break 180. I hope...

  2. Audrey, thanks for such an inspiring post! I need a big kick in the pants to get the body up and moving!

  3. oooooh aaaaaaah!!! You know how I love BLING! I'm totally motivated.

  4. I want bling!

    I like only 5 days of exercise. I've gone from 6 to 3, 4 and 5 depending on my week.

    I'm with you Audrey, all the way I say!

  5. I like this. You really know how to motivate us, don't you! I can't wait!
