10 Weeks to New Years Challenge

Yeah! It's time for a challenge. I am super excited about this one. Anyone is welcome to join in. Yes, Brandi, Jana, and Elly...even you maintaining super stars! Okay so here it goes. Debs and I really wanted to keep this challenge fair for everyone. Some of us LOVE to exercise, some of us...eh...not so much and some of us really can't for one reason or another. So, this challenge is a personal challenge. One that we create for ourselves. I am going to give y'all some homework and you have until next Wednesday (Oct. 22) to "turn" it in. By turning it in, you have to post your decisions/answers here on the blog. If you are not a member and/or can't post please email me at tlb81003 (at) normalonline.com (change it to @) with your completed homework.
This challenge will last 10 weeks. Dec 31st is report day. Now, I understand that some of us will be doing other things on New Years Eve (have fun...I'll be snoozing) so you have 1 week to post your results and in your post I'd love to I'd love to know how you're feeling. Did you experience growth, triumphs, have any wow moments, any realizations? Results must be posted or emailed to me by the night of Tuesday, January 6.

So, what's the homework? What's the challenge you ask. Good question. This challenge will deal with each one of us and wherever we are in life. Whether you want to focus on weight, spending daily time with God, procrastination...wherever, whatever you want/need.

By December 31, 2008 I will: (give specific/realistic goals)
example: “lose 12 pounds”
1.
2.
3.
Reasons I MUST change:
example: “improve my health”
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

List 5 accomplishments needed to reach my Goal(s):
example: “drink a minimum of 64 oz per day”
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Okay, now for the "prize". We're not going to have a prize with this challenge. We will have a gift package that I've lovingly named "Indulge This Year". I'm not going to tell you what it is but Bird, if you decide to join in you'll be playing for your lovely wife...maybe. :-) Hehe
In order to be eligible for this package you must accomplish 2 of your 3 goals. I think this is fair because it is the season for many unexpected things to happen and we all need to know that is is awesome to reach goals no matter if you didn't reach them all. If you reach 2 of the 3 goals your name will be thrown into the drawing. The name pulled will receive a yummy package from me. (You all are thinking food now aren't you!) Yes, I will ship overseas so all of our friends over there can participate.
Alright, so I think that's about it. If you are in on this challenge leave a comment and let us know. If you have a question, do the same. Remember, you have until next Wednesday to turn your "homework" in. We will do weekly challenge check in's on Wednesday.
Alright, off to put little ones to bed...it's way past time.

Jessica, We'd love to have you! Just send me your "homework" please. By the way, have you tried the Ethiopian place on N Killengerway? YUMMY! Just there for lunch. Let's see...it's called something like Enjonio or something. Near the college.

Tami said...

Oh, and that's supposed to be Killinworth???

Jessica said...

Killingsworth! I know exactly the place you're talking about. I actually live just about six or seven blocks from there!

Yummy stuff. I guess they have a buffet on Sundays for 12.95. The owner said they started it to get people in but now they can't stop. Super nice people. I was a bit of a glutton for Ingera though. Love the sour taste. Oh, on Sunday's during the buffet she said they do their traditional coffee ceremony. Have you ever experienced it before? I don't know that it would be the same with people you don't know but with our friends from Ertra and Ethiopia it is a wonderful time of sharing. Something we enjoy to do as a family. When I do it hear at home he and I have coffee and the kids have some decaf tea. They think they're hot stuff with tea.

He and I being my husband and I. It's so time for bed.
