Happy 2nd day of December everyone!
Today starts week two of my challenges (except for the 2014 Holiday Challenge… where it’s week 3). I’m really excited for what’s coming!
This week in the Good Life Holiday Challenge… we are focusing on our bodies. The whole point of the week is to make peace with our bodies and grow to love it, instead of always trying to change it. Today, our goal is to dance to two songs. I already do this every weekday (working with children, you get to dance a lot). This should be a very good challenge!
There are a lot of fun things going on in the Elf4Health Challenge! Today, we get to write a handwritten note to someone. I am writing out all my Christmas cards today to family. 🙂 Tomorrow, we get to eat the rainbow… and I’m not saying to eat Skittles all day! The challenge is to eat as many different colors throughout the day. On Wednesday, we have to go makeup free. This is easy for me, since I don’t wear makeup that much. On Thursday, we have to work out with a buddy… I take group exercise classes with all of my friends, so we always work out together anyway! On Friday, we have to leave an Operation Beautiful note somewhere. If you don’t know what Operation Beautiful is, click here. It’s a really great cause. Saturday’s challenge is to clean out our fridge or pantry… Mom and Dad do this for me every day (yay for living with our parents! On Sunday, we get to make a list of 20 things we are grateful for.
For week 3 of my 2014 Holiday Challenge, I am setting my goal at 40 miles. I’m really hoping I can do this!!!
Today, I’m re-starting my diet. There are no leftovers in the house. This means that I can not be distracted by the excessive amount of food! I hope I can get to my goal weight soon.
I had to work most of my weekend. In case you didn’t know, I work at my local TJ Maxx. I get to meet a lot of people throughout the day, since I am a cashier. You get to deal with some really nice people, some not so nice people, and even some famous people! This past weekend, I met Caroline Manzo, from the Real Housewives of NJ. I also met former cast member, Dina Manzo, from the same show. I’m a huge fan of the show, especially since my cousin is on it. So meeting them was a really great experience. I was so excited to get to talk to them. They were the most down-to-earth people, and extremely sweet. This just shows that there are good people in the world.
Hope you have a great week! See you soon!
