CRYS @ Bigger Than My Body!!!!!!!
Crys leads a very busy lifestyle. She's self-employed and is a real go-getter. She mentioned on her blog how she's been to San Francisco, New York and New Orleans just this month. She also endured a move to a new location....and she STILL managed to navigate her way through restaurant eating out of town AND get in her exercise, whether she had her normal gym at her disposal or not. Crys has set a fabulous example of what you really can do for yourself, when you put YOURSELF first. She had a fantastic loss this month of 15 lbs.!!!!! Way to go Crys!! I'll be having the lady from CSN stores email you with details on the $50 gift certificate. Congrats girl...you really earned it!!
I'm also happy to report that nearly everyone that participated in this challenge lost weight this month. Good for you!!! A couple of you set your own personal goals and not only met them, but surpassed them!! Thank you all so much for participating in this challenge with me. I mentioned before that I'm considering holding some sort of challenge every month between now and Christmas to get us all as low as possible before we're surrounded by holiday goodies. Overexposure to temptation can be a real weight loss killer....so let's work on solidifying those good habits now!
I will be co-hosting a 2 week challenge in September with my good friend Kim @ All About The Bottom Line. I'm not sure yet if we're going to run the challenge from both of our blogs or just one...we haven't worked out the fine details. There will be a couple of rules as there are with any challenge, but nothing you can't handle. This will not be a scale-focused challenge, but rather a focus on getting in the habit of regular exercise. I want it to be come a natural choice for you...and I want you to experience the true joy you feel when you know you're doing what's right for your body. I went to the gym last night with Kim, and due to my ankle, only walked for 30 mins on the treadmill, and at a slower pace...a speed of only 3.3. But I carried my 5 lb. weights in my hands for the first mile like I did last week...set them down for a short while, then picked them up again to finish out the last few mins of my walk. When I got home my ankle and leg were stiff, a little sore...but I had a smile on my face and in my heart. I felt good. So good, in fact, I'm going to meet Kim there again tonight!!!
So be ready to start the next challenge on Sept. 15th and it will run through Sept. 30th. We're still kicking around ideas on the prize, but it will most likely be a gift card to Amazon.com so that you can spend it on anything you want, all courtesy of Kim's giving heart. Isn't she awesome??? This exercise challenge and reward were her idea and funded by her, and I'm honored to co-host it with her. I hope you'll all join us! :)
