Hi ya'll. Sorry I'm posting later then usual. I had a long morning of balancing our budget, paying bills, running errands and then making lunch. Now, I am waiting to digest my lunch so that I can get my days workout done!

So many of you have given me fantastic advice. I have decided that I will be raising my calorie intake to 1800 and switching my workouts a little bit to 'shock' my body. I am even more determined this month to lose some weight... something HAS to work!

I found Traineo on Lola's blog. It is a pretty cool little helper. My favorite thing about it is the graphing. Its always a little more rewarding when you can see your success on paper! Just click on either of the buttons in the upper right hand corner and they will take you to my page!

For my Group Challenge I have decided to give up sugar.... as in cookies, candies, cereal (the kids stuff). I also wanted to add one more thing... I want to give up spending money. Dont laugh! I spend way too much money on little things that I or the kids could do without.. So my goal is to put $100 a month into a savings account!

Ok.. so I am off to blurf (blog surf) and then I have to get the sweat flowing! Have a blessed day!

Sound like you're headed in the right direction. Sometimes you just have to shake things up a bit! By the way, I love the new look of your blog. Good luck on giving up sugar!

Piece of cake.

Not literally as cake as sugar and that's a no no for 39 more days :)

BUT, you can do it! There are a few of us that gave up sugar/sweets. I'm sure I'll be whining in about 2 more days!

Go bust a move!

I love the savings account idea - i started one myself last year on ING. You get hella interest back - 4.5%. If you're interested, I can send you an invite - if you open an account with $250, you get $25 free and I get $10.
