Get Fit, Feel Epic Challenge!


Rebecca over at Weight Wars (which is an AWESOME blog, you should be reading) is having a challenge. And I need a challenge. My eating has been atrocious lately. I've been eating out WAY too much, not tracking, not drinking water and not working out as much as I should. So this...I need to do.

This is an 8 week challenge... and I plan on making the most of it. So starting out, I'm setting FIVE goals!!!

1) By the end of week 8, I will be consistently running 4 miles, 2x a week!

I am running my 5K on October 13th, 2012. And I am running 3.1 miles 2x a week. After this race I am going to start the B210K program! So I want to be running 4 miles at least by the end of the challenge!

2) I will to be able to plank at least 2 minutes consistently!

I have never planked before...but I heard its good for your abs. Apparantly it's very hard and I think 2 minutes is a good goal!!!

3) TRACKING!! I will track everything!! Every bite, lick and taste for 8 weeks!! This also includes weighing in once weekly on Wednesday!

4) Try 8 new recipes and post them on my blog!

I love cooking...I love HEALTHY cooking. So this is a great challenge for me! Woot!

5) Organize and get rid of all the junk in my spare bedroom and find a purpose for that room by the end of the 8th week. Use Pinterest to gather ideas and implement them! (Before and after photos will be taken)

** You may wonder why I didn't set a weight goal. I have been really frustated lately. I have gained, I know I have...so I don't want to focus on the scale. I want to focus on a healthier me!


  1. I'm doing the challenge too. :) I think you've set some really good, attainable goals. I've been reading your blog following your C25K training, you can totally be running 4 miles 2X per week by the end of the challenge.

    Good luck!

  2. I agree! Great goals - I love that you didn't set a weight goal, good for you! I'm looking forward to seeing you achieve everything :-)

  3. Gret goals! Im going to go check out the challenge!! I do planks, and I cant hold one for two minutes! Thats a great goal!!

  4. Snap on the challenge! It's super to find so many new blogs. Good luck with all your goals:)

  5. Fantastic goals! I'm focusing on exercising for a number of minutes this month and, eating less carbs. We can do this girl! :-)

  6. Fab goals, 2 minutes planking is tough! my 5 year old can do it but I cannot lol.

  7. I'm in the challenge too :) I'm totally with you on the planks! I can hold for a minute but even that's a struggle at the moment. Good luck reaching all your goals :)

  8. Hey there, I am doing the challenge too! Good luck with your goals!

  9. Harder goals lead to greater achievements! You just need to keep your body well prepared for action and not let it be exhausted. I did not realize the vitality of right nutrition until I've come across militarygradenutritionals.com/blog. Found there lots of useful advices on how to enhance your physical capacities.
