The Challenge is ON!

Okay, let's start our challenge today. You know what you need to do, how much you need to lose, what size you need to fit into.

Let's check in once a week to see how it's going. I'm warning you, though. I have a secret weapon: No booze. Yesterday was my last glass of wine (or beer or grappa) until further notice. I think that should take care of the most calories, right there. I hope my liver doesn't freak out from the lack of pollution. I will keep you up-to-date on that one. Tomorrow I'm making a big ole pot 0' soup which should get me through tomorrow dinner and two days of lunches. I am also keeping a food and workout diary.

What are your tricks? I need a few more.
Good luck, my friends!


  1. No carbs for two weeks - that's my plan (at least, limit them to whole grains.) Eat only food that has 5g of fat or less. Limit the fruit for two weeks. Increase my weight training and run at least three times a week....... I don't really drink anymore, so I can say that I will stop drinking.

  2. I thought the no carbs thing was for sedentary people... You're a runner... don't you need those things???

  3. whoa, luuuuuuuurve baby's new makeover. What a lovely b-day gift.

    Secondly, errrr, I haven't made my 'diet' plan yet. Had my last red velvet cupcake today though...back to packing healthier lunches instead of eating out fresh vegetable juice every morning and 5 portion controlled meals a day. I'll put this in a more coherent form later. Gotta go night night because I'm due for 16 miles manana. Let's do this sistas!
