33 Day Challenge : Are You IN ?

 Happy Saturday everyone :)

This last week has been pretty exciting for me! I thank you all so much for your words of encouragement on my post about binging and finding time for me. You all have helped me so much. Through the course of talking about those topics on Twitter, I met some new tweeties! Brittany and Sam and I chatted on ooVoo and really hit off an awesome virtual friendship. Then the next night I video chatted with Rita and Brittany. These women are amazing!

If you haven't ever reached out to some of the amazing people out there in the Fitblogger world, DO IT. Everyone is so supportive and friendly! I need my ass kicked every now and then - and I can count on them to do just that.

In the spirit of Connectober and jump starting our fitness before the holidays come around, Sam posted her 33 Day Challenge. The first day is TODAY! Don't worry, if you'd like to join in, you're more than welcome! Come chat with us on Twitter as well under #33DC.

So Sam proposes this : We should make goals for ourselves over the next 33 days. We're focusing on Clean Eats, Resistance Training, Carido Training, Personal Goals and Weight Loss. Here are my goals and thoughts on each topic ...

Clean Eats
To me, this means eating foods that make me feel healthy. I will be focusing on lots of veggies, fruits, whole grains, and protein. The more natural and organic, the better! No naughty foods here. I've done so well not ordering pizza or going to any fast foods this last month. I'd like to keep it that way.
My goal : 60 Clean Eats / 66 Possible Days (2 per day)

Resistance Training
I have weights, shake weights (shut UP they are awesome!) and resistance bands. I need to actually use them. Hmmm, first maybe some dusting off.
My goal : 15 Sessions / 33 Possible Days

Cardio Training
This will be a little tough for me, since I am an enormous wimp. If I'm really serious about a marathon someday, I need to start moving again. This can be anything from power walking around the neighborhood on the nice days, or step in my living room. As long as my heart rate is up, it counts!
My goal : 15 sessions / 33 Possible Days

Personal Goals
- Blog 20 times / 33 Possible Days (eeeeek!)
- Read 4 Self Wellness books
- Stretch or do Yoga DVD 20 times/33 possible days

So there you have it!
and, because I'm a nerd, I made the badges below if you'd like to post them on your site! Just grab the codes inside the boxes. They all link back to Sam's Challenge.  Are you in?? :)



  1. You are too cute. So excited for this challenge :)

  2. You are too sweet my dear. It was a pleasure to "meet" you and yours. You are brimming with fantastic ideas.

  3. I just heard about the 33 day challenge! So exciting! I'll be trucking along with ya'll! Good luck : )

  4. A few things I want to say. I'm gonna stick to my own routine for now, because it's working really well for me, but this sounds like a fantastic program! I'll put it in the back of my mind for when I want to switch things up in the future. Also, I LOVED your (shut UP, they are awesome!) bit, I seriously laughed when I read that! Lastly, I am new to twitter, and I don't really get how it works. How do you chat on it?
