Fit Mommy Friday!

Heather —  November 12, 2010

Curious? You can see my Fit Mommy Challenge Post. Today, I need to list how I am doing on my goals in the challenge.


  1. My goal: To continue to eat only organic foods- Did This, no eating out this week
  2. To lose 10 Lbs for Christmas- Well, have not lost any yet.
  3. To drink wine at most 1-2 nights per week, a maximum of 2 glasses- Blew this, I know, it doesn’t matter its organic. My husband pointed that out….
  4. To not eat at all after 7:30 pm- Did eat several times after 7:30. I kept forgetting. Noticed I look for carbs- crackers, things like that after kids are settled and I’m tidying kitchen
  5. To not eat/taste batter/appetizers etc while Holiday cooking- Did not eat while cooking, except when I put out appetizers for company. I probably ate way too many calories there, talking and moving around
  6. To incorporate more veggies into my diet- Ate carrots for snack 2x, purposefully did not buy anything like pretzels. Added more veges to lunches
  7. To exercise at least 4x per week- Exercised officially 2x.

ok. So there you have it. Not a great re-start. But, I kept putting it off, then the week was almost gone. I was more aware and mentally noticing my weaknesses, rather than trying not to!

Now that I’ve faced my weaknesses…yuck….I have high hopes for this upcoming week.

Head over to Got Chai to how the other participants are doing!

Fit Mommy Friday

Ok. So let’s try this AGAIN.

A sweet blogging friend of mine began a challenge a while back called Fit Mommy. The concept is great–eat healthy, exercise, challenge yourself to whatever level you want. Check in with a group of likeminded and supportive women with a check-in blog post each Friday and read up about how everyone else is doing.

I started out with a bang. Then, the weather continued to be freezing…and I got sick. I whined and groaned and over the next few weeks, basically dropped out of Fit Mommy. (I think they were probably glad)

Anyway, I saw recently that Fit Mommy is having a showdown to help people get motivated again during the Holiday Season:

“Beginning Monday, October 25 and running through December 31st (65 days), Fit Mommy is hosting its first Fitness Challenge!”

Now, I just blogged about this, and I know it’s a bit late. But everyone is welcome to join in…and there is even a prize package for a lucky Fit Mommy!!

I told Denise (the original Fit Mommy) that I really should do this. I also admitted that I could probably drop some weight instantaneously if I quit one thing….yes, that would be having a glass of wine in the evenings. Or was that two? (yes, mom, I’m mostly joking)

Anyway, Smart Fit Mommy Denise sent me a fantastic video clip that says it all. Take a look:

Motivated? There are a bunch of people playing along–Go to Got Chai to join in!

My goals? I will post them this coming Friday! Right now, I am off to download Fit Mommy 10 Week Daily Checklist available through Mrs. White’s blog @ The Legacy of Home (She’s the co-host for the challenge:)
