The Holiday Pledge – in color!

So today being December 1st, it’s officially the “Holiday” season.  With that, I give you my Holiday Pledge (originally posted a few weeks ago) but this time my friend Justin made it all pretty for me. 🙂

Ain’t it great?! 

If you have a pledge, feel free to share it in the comments section or just use mine!

5lb Challenge…it’s on!

Thanksgiving was the official start of a bet my friend Craig had challenged me to: Lose 5lbs between Thanksgiving and January 3rd.
The premise being that hardly anyone can actually LOSE weight over the holidays.
I wanted to prove him wrong hence the bet. We bet a whole $20! 🙂
So I weighed in at 134lbs Thursday morning after breakfast. (Picture below)

I must say having a bet like this, albeit for very little money, is actually proving to be more motivating for me than the Figure competition goal! Probably because its short-term, I get a reward in the end, and in my eyes, this won’t be too hard for me to accomplish.
I already did great on Thanksgiving by avoiding the pumpkin pie but didn’t completely neglect my sweet tooth having 2 (yes 2) homemade chocolate chip cookies. No depriving, just careful choosing.
Next week starts the final two weeks of the Fighter Diet workouts I’ve been doing. It should prove to be the most challenging of all the workouts (I think she has me doing pull-ups, yikes!)
I’m actually looking forward to THAT challenge as well.
All in all I’m hoping for one of my most productive weeks to date!
And I promise to post progress pics…soon. 🙂
