The Winter 5% Challenge will begin Jan. 11! I'm so ready! These holiday pounds need to come off in a hurry! The challenges are so much fun and they have motivated me to lose so much weight while enjoying myself and making some wonderful new friends!

Winter is not a favorite of mine. The weather here can never decide if it's going to be warm or cool, or even cold. Tomorrow is a prime example. The winds will start out from the NW and it will be in the low 40's. By mid-afternoon, the winds will have shifted to the S and it will warm up to 60! So I will start the day in warm clothes and have to change my shirt by the afternoon. A typical winter day....

For fitness I will be walking on the indoor track at the YMCA, and lifting weights twice a week.

For diet, I will be eating lean meats, lots of vegetables and some fruit, and whole grains. Since it's winter, I will also be making homemade soups. That way I can control the sodium. Everything in moderation is the way I meet food challenges!

    emoticon emoticon That's because you don't buy 20+ jars at a time, heheheh.
    Freezing my peanut butter assures I can use it before it spoils emoticon It also makes it a little harder to get out of the jar - but I've learned how to really chip away at it frozen emoticon I use a fork emoticon

    Today I got back on track again, finally. All peanut butter is now in the freezer again.

    No - no damages here, thank the Good Lord!

    Yesterday was a HUNGRY DAY for me so I undid all the good from the previous week. But you know what? I feel content! Isn't that awesome?!!
    I ate more than 1/2 jar of peanut butter in one sitting emoticon
    and I enjoyed every bit of it emoticon


    Love you,

    This is the first challenge I didn't do welcome visits - sorry. It was a rough holiday season for me. But now it's over and I'm so ready to get the weight off again.

    No, no flooding here. I'm fortunate to be on a high spot. And I consider myself blessed that the roof doesn't leak and the walls are still standing!

    Be safe - praying for you now.
