Update on Challenges {December-January}

I'm such a bad girl. I have been meaning to update you guys on my challenges, but because of being so busy lately I hadn't gotten around to it. Please forgive me?

You can read the details on the challenges here.

Challenge One: Go a year without soda.
This hasn't been as hard as I thought it was going to be. I'm not the biggest soda drinker, I would rather have water any day, so I've been doing pretty good in this area. My only concern will be camp in the summer, the time I use to load myself on Dr. Pepper since I don't have it many other times. I'll have to make sure I bring some Crystal Light packets or something :P

Challenge Two: 365 miles in 365 days

In total, I have fast-walked/ran 62.25 miles since December 20th. I've already reached my first goal of 25 miles so I could compete in a marathon my family signed up for so I'm excited. I've also lost 8 pounds so far and gained muscle, so I'm estactic :)

Just thought I'd give you all the low-down. Thanks again for supporting me you guys. You definitely give me the courage and determination to continue these challenges!

~Peace, love, cherry poptarts (craving one)~

post scriptum: I promise a real post will be coming soon :)

  7. oh. my. goodness. gracious.
    Jesuschick, I need to apologize. So I haven't been over here in so long, and it's because I never saw you come up on my reading list, which is how I do things these days. And THEN I realized-- I'M NOT FOLLOWING YOUR BLOG???? WHAT??? I totally and completely thought I took care of that a long time ago, but apparently not. Such a sad case for one of my most loyal commenters. I'm going to do it right now, please forgive me.

    -a very sincerely sorry Lou

  8. Thanks y'all! You are all way too sweet :))

    Lou: Don't sweat it! Blogger has been deleting blogs from my blog list as well, its very irritating. I'm just thrilled to have you back :))
