Wednesday Check-in: The Power of One

Power of One Challenge

It’s time for another challenge over at the Sisterhood! This one is a little different than the last several because its an individual challenge! While having a team is awesome, in the end it comes down to the power of you when it comes to making changes! But don’t think that you will be on this journey alone! The community of the Sisterhood is beyond amazing and encouraging and will walk beside you every step of the way! Believe me, this marks my 7th challenge (check out this post that summarizes my first year with the Sisterhood)! Did I mention there will be prizes? Its not too late to sign up so get yourself over there! Click here for details.

This challenge will be focused on weight loss of course, but if you are like me and are focusing on non-scale victories, then there are fitness elements and challenges for you too! I am actually breaking the rules right away on this challenge and NOT weighing in. This challenge for me is about putting healthy habits into practice and focus on losing inches. If you check out my weight loss/training page, you can see that I’ve got a countdown to Disney going on! That’s right! We’ve set a date to take Abby girl to see The Mouse (as she calls him)! And I am NOT going to be one of the moms with a muffin top and a fanny pack! I am going to be a HOT Disney mom ๐Ÿ™‚

So here are my starting measurements:

  • Chest: 33″
  • Waist: 26″
  • Hips: 35″
  • Bicep: 11″
  • Thigh: 19″
  • Calf: 12.5″

Here are my goals for the challenge:

  1. Hit the gym on my lunch break at least 3 days a week.
  2. Remove all soda from my diet instead replacing it with water and other healthy drinks.
  3. Prepare dinner at home at least 4 nights a week, trying a new recipe at least once.
  4. Lose at least 5 inches overall throughout the course of the challenge.

Can’t wait to start 2011 on the right foot and continue this awesome journey!

    It seems that a lot of us are struggling with soda! There must be some crack in it, or something. Those look like good goals – good luck!

    You can do it! I’ll be following your journey closely – I have RA and in diagnosis process with fibromyalgia with my rhuematologist. That’s one of the many reasons I need to kick my butt into gear! Soda is the devil, so glad we can all fight that together!!

    I, too, need to cook more meals at home. And they need to be healthy. This is where I’m lacking.

    Good luck!

    I started to drink soda water with a squeeze of lime in it instead of Coke. It took me a while but I totaly kicked the soda habit. To this day I still order soda with lime when I go out to eat but now I can’t stand the taste of soda. Its way too sweet.
