Doing Not Thinking Challenge

I am participating in a challenge hosted by Two Frog Home

What is the Doing Not Thinking Challenge?
This is a challenge for all of us who make plans but don’t accomplish for whatever reason. It’s for those of us who spend a lot of time thinking and not enough acting and doing. It’s not a competition to see who can accomplish their goals in the shortest amount of time, or about the size of the goal, but rather a network of dreamers joined together to offer support and encouragement. We may find that as we put our dreams into action that some are just not reasonable at this point in time and that’s ok - its the going after it that’s important for this challenge. This will be a longish term challenge, we won’t post the final update until December 15, 2008. This doesn’t mean that you must be finished with your dream / goal by December 15th, it just gives us a time frame to work with in, some dreams may take years to fully accomplish. This challenge isn’t specifically about accomplishment, its more about taking action towards realizing your dreams.

From reading this blog and those of you who know me know I'm not a person who thinks about doing for very long before acting . But there is one thing in my life I've been thinking about more than doing and that is working out and shedding a few extra pounds from last winter. For over 10 years I have been a faithful exerciser and have been able to eat whatever within reason while maintaining my waistline. However, this last year I have been a complete yo yo. Hardcore one week and nothing the next two and most recently I've been a complete slacker. My jeans are a little snug, last years shorts aren't cutting it and my bikini had very little use this summer. So here is a chance to step it up a notch and get to where I feel comfortable.
So my goal is to loose 5 lbs by my December goal. I will do a weigh in but I will not focus on that number too much more as to my activities running, weights. My start date is August 27th, the day the kids return to school . Stay tuned!

Good luck on your new goal! You'll do great! :) I always just do my Isagenix 9 day cleanse when I want to lose 5-10 lbs. It's hard to lose weight when your body is bogged down with toxins... Eating right and cleansing regularly is 1/2 the work, in my humble opinion!

Lord bless you!! :)
