My Pink Loser Challenge!

Hello Everyone!

Are you all ready to get fit and healthy in 2013?  I know I am!  I started my journey 4 years ago, lost 50 pounds, maintained the loss for almost 2 years and then it slowly crept back on.  I realize that I cannot do this alone and I need support.  I would love for you to join me.  Here is what we will do for the challenge:

*Monday weigh in over on My Pink Loser's Facebook Page or on the weekly post here.  (You do not need to put how much you weigh, just how many pounds you lost, if you'd like to share.)

*Set a realistic weekly, monthly, etc. goal.  I say realistic because I have learned that if I set my expectations too high, I am just setting myself up to fail.  One of my weekly goals will be to get a certain amount of workouts in, for example.

*Be true to yourself and do not deprive.  Remember that if you deprive your body completely that is when a lot of us binge.  Everything in moderation.

*I will be checking in on MyFitnessPal on my iphone.  It's a great way to keep track of your food diary and exercise diary.

*Make yourself a fun award!

*We will have our big, first milestone check in the first week of April!  Have a 3 month goal, then we will go on from there.

I will try to take a weekly picture of myself for this blog every week.  That is something that helps ME. Start your own fitness blog and track your own personal journey.

I am looking forward to Wednesday!  I'll see you all HERE and on

New Update!

Hi Everyone!

It's so funny that I haven't updated this blog in over a year.  I didn't realize it had been that long.  I was basically in my own world, got involved in tennis, and running my household for the past year.  I am back and starting my journey again.  This time I am totally serious.  What makes this time different, you ask?  I had some tests done at the dr's office this past week and the test results came back that I have high triglycerides and elevated cholesterol.  I really don't want to start taking medication to bring it down so I am going to try eating healthier and exercising more than I already do.  I am cutting sugar!  YIKES!!  Yes, you heard it here.  I am no longer going to be the sugar-aholic that I have been known to be.  I will have a treat once in a while but not as much as I've been having.  This will be good for me.  I am almost done with day 2 of almost no sugar and I'm feeling okay.  I'm also trying to cut out white flour as much as possible.  I made whole wheat spaghetti with ground turkey tonight for dinner and everyone ate all of it!  This is not only going to help me but my family as well.
