10 Day Challenge!

Last night, I was ambitious and took a picture of Leslie's 4 Mile Walk. She totally kicked my butt. So tonight I gave her another shot, and I made it through!

Then I was tired so I decided to watch the intro. There I found her 10 -Day Challenge. She challenged me to do the 4 Mile Video every day for 10 days. I can do that. I can commit for 10 days. So I'm in. Starting today. 10 days.

And that got me thinking.

10 days. I'm not waiting until tomorrow or Monday or whatever. I am starting NOW.

And I challenge you to do the same.

Here's how it works.

1. Make a commitment RIGHT NOW to do SOMETHING for your HEALTH for 10 DAYS. It can be whatever you feel the need to commit to. Drink 8 glasses of water, no chocolate, exercising for 30 minutes, eating 5 vegetables, whatever. Leave me a comment to tell us what your goal is.

2. DO IT. As soon as you commit, not tomorrow (unless it's late) but TODAY. I'll be checking in on my blog, and I encourage you to check in on yours and link back to me.

3. EMAIL ME on your DAY 1 (hopefully Wednesday), 5 days in (Sunday) and at the end (next Friday) and let me know how you did! If you run a few days behind, that's cool. Just keep me posted. (QuestionsforDessert@gmail.com)

4. Everyone who met their goal at the end will be put into a hat/bowl/tennis shoe and I'll have Nathan choose a winner at random. Prize is yet to be determined, but you'll love it. I'm leaning toward a gym-mix cd or a copy of one of my home-made cookbooks. And after seeing this lovely chicken salad, who wouldn't want to play?

So, who's in?

(This is my first non-song-lyric post title! It feels really strange.)

I hope I'm not posting this twice:

I love the idea. LOVE IT! For the next 10 days, I will NOT snack on cereal. It is my major weakness (especially right out of the box while standing in front of the cabinet). Thanks for making the challenge!!

I'm in too! For ten days I will NOT eat for the three hours before bedtime. I'm bad about late-night snacking but it's a habit I'm dying to break!

(Starting Wednesday. Because I'm about to go to bed and I had a bowl of cereal about two hours ago. See what I mean?)

This is an awesome idea. Thanks for sharing. My ten days will be sweets free. With a weekend coming up, that is going to be tricky. But if I can do it for ten days I will be dang proud!

Great idea - and I love that it came from Leslie. So... I will commit for the next 10 days to get through HALF of the 2 mile audio walk that I have of Leslie's, OR to take an actual walk in my neighborhood. I can do it. I don't know when, but I can do it.

Thanks for the motivation.

I in as well.

For 10 days I will NOT eat any chocolate and if I make it the 10 days- (NO I WILL make it) I will continue going... this is one of my biggest down falls! I have been known to sit and eat a WHOLE bag of Treasure's!

Thanks for asking us to join you!

For the next 10 days I will not eat one single piece of chocolate!

If you'll ready my blog today you'll see the chocolate monster and I had a run in yesterday!

So neat that you and FB got to meet one another.

Your shopping spree sounded like so much fun.

I've been thinking about this all day. I think it's a great challenge.

I think the hardest thing for me these days is taking time for myself. And I know if I did that, I'd eat better, sleep more, and exercise.

So that's what i'm vowing for the next 10 days: Taking Care of myself!

I will post each day on how i'm doing that - STARTING TODAY!

yay! this is a great post!
You guys should totally crash the wedding, I think its only (cough) 5 hours away from where you live!

For ten days I will stick to my eating and exercise plan.

FAT BRIDESMAID said...

Dude, we have Lorrie's permission (in writing!) to crash her wedding. How lucky are we?! ;)

katrina said...

hi, i'm new to you:)

I'm in though. Water -- 8 8ozers a day, and 30 minutes of exercise every day.

Jumpstart. I'm here.

Lora said...

Well first I was going to say that I would exercise every day for 10 days..but that would be cheating (since I started the Couch to 5K program and I've been doing that faithfully 3x a week and weight lifting on the other days.) So....I am going to challenge myself to use a small plate for every single meal for 10 days. (I try to do that but often forget)

I'm know I'm too late to be in the running for the *prize* but I wanted to let you know that I'm still going to participate:

Thanks for doing this!

Great idea! Count me in!

For the next ten days, I will eat all of my meals while sitting at the table -- not at the computer, in front of the tv or standing in the kitchen. :)

BikiniMe said...

PS I, too, am aware that I'm not a contender for the prize, but I still want to participate. :)
