Sorry I’m late!

[To the conference blog meeting of which Summer Lovin’ is the top top priority of our discussion]

Hear ye, hear ye.

[Once again sorry for the tardiness…spent half of the day in bed contemplating my existence, not being lazy like my mother would say! My mother says anyone still in bed at 9 a.m. is lazy. I am not my mother’s daughter!]

Anyways, Summer Lovin’ begins today: if you’ve haven’t been following along, I've invited any of you to join me in a 8 week, 2 phase summer countdown weight-loss program, where you make your own healthy living goals to aid in your weight losing.

Currently, I have 13 people signed up! Weeeee!

I’m exciting about our cumulative weight-loss—and over the weeks I’ll be sure to link back to your blog posts about the challenge, I’m hoping to do a weekly thing where I interview one of you taking part in the challenge, etc. For any questions, concerns, ideas, constructive criticisms, please email me!

Here are my GOALS for the next four weeks:
  • Tracking: using the myfitnesspal app daily to track and keep my exercise, water drinking, and eating goals. Tracking is key and using an app on my iTouch is so convenient.
  • Exercise: on most days. I want to commit to three Spin classes, one Hot Yoga and one Hot Pilates per week.
  • Sleep: 7hrs - 8 hrs. I’m not 19 anymore—I really need a better sleep schedule for my overall happiness!
  • Weekly OA meetings—This program gives me such support!

Those of you who have blogged your challenge goals:

Be well! See you soon!

"Sleep: 7hrs - 8 hrs. I’m not 19 anymore—I really need a better sleep schedule for my overall happiness!" I AGREE! I need a good 8 hours or I am so grumpy.

I always feel like a loser leaving social events at 9:30 so we can be home in time for bed. lol.
