I forgot to keep track this past week. I will be honest, I can't keep up with this. I figure I just added my 10 bucks to the pot for who ever wins the challenge. Between my family life, with 4 kids, working full time and going to school full time, I am seriously exhausted. I am doing great to get my 2 workouts in per week. Geesh!!
oh well, least still in it...

ACK !! Didn't post week two and here is week three .... The biggest challenge for use was travelling with family to see family ... Cram 7 plus a dog into the Tahoe and add all the snack foods and soda .... let me tell you, sitting in the middle seat in the middle row is NOT where you want to be ... especially with soda drinkers on either side of you. LOL BUT, I'm happy to say I've not had a sip o' soda since the start of the challenge. I'm not freaking out every day like I thought I would, but there are days when I really, really, want it. I don't dare have one on the free days, because I'm not sure I'll be able to "get back on the wagon" LOL Surely I'm not soda-free for life, but it's been good for me to see that I can actually do it. Saturday we were running all day and stopped for lunch, I nearly caved and then thought, good heavens. If I start now, the last 3 weeks of "cold turkey" will have been in vain. (I know, my mind is WACK)
While we lost some points while on the road, overall, I'm still happy about what we've done. My head's been focused on less snacking and eating better foods. (I'd never considered almonds great road trip food, but hey...) And I'm happy about our routine of scriptures/journaling which we tend to do more together than independently as we previously did. Jon had vacation time before he started at the new practice ... this week has proven a bit more challenging as far as getting my workout in...now that he's back to work, I'm finding myself busy with other project and having to remind myself about the workout. LOL But, passing that chart on the fridge helps. I would like to say that I did think think I'd see better results by this point, but I'll be patient. At least it's doing something for my head. LOL
OK ... this is much too long a post ... about something that mean nothing to anyone else by me ... but it's been awhile since I've taken time to log on. Thank you for your patience. ha..ha...
Hope everyone is doing well and keepup the good work!!

If any of you guys are in Mesa, Chandler, or Scottsdale, I found an ad for a free 4 week bootcamp. They have women only in the early morning and co-ed in the evenings. I am signed up for the east mesa 5:30 am bootcamp that starts the 28th of this month. Anyone that wants to check it out, here is the link.

Amber- 70 This week was better than last week. I have started to dream about food, I woke up thinking was it a dream or did I really eat that Dairy Queen Mr. Misty float!!! It is so funny to be worried all the time I might have forgot to do something off the list, I am always re-checking to make sure it was done!! This is crazy but good!!!
Wow.....what a week! I am so "down" with this challenge and I don't mean a depressed "down". I know, I'm too old to be this cool! I sincerely mean it when I say this challenge has changed the last 3 wks. of my life. The scripture reading alone has been a boost to my day! 7 lbs. and counting!!!!!!! Hey James and Jamie......it looks like your ole' Mom is gettin' the best of you.....watcha gonna do about it? I know how much James hates to loose but can you imagine loosing to your MIL?!
