August Challenge - Help yourself, help others!!

I went to the lake over the weekend with a friend.  It is so nice to just be able to get away for a while!  Missed my man, but someone has to stick around and earn our keep!

We didn't do much and the internet wasn't cooperating.  Sometimes, we just scab onto my in-laws and other times I try to use my phone's wi-fi.  This weekend, neither one was working.  So, not much posting!

We rested, we ate some yummy food and we saw a movie - The Watch.  It was funny, but a bit raunchy, so you have been warned!

Today, I hit the ground running - Brian had a doctor's appointment, I had a headache and needed to get to Fed-Ex and the UPS store.  Office work is still calling my name, I got a bit done, but didn't get it finished - ugh!

It's almost August, so I have a new challenge.  I am really excited about it and can't wait to share it with you!

First of all, we all know what we want to work on most. You will pick your own goals.

We will also follow the usual - keep a food journal, drink your water, workout at least 5 days per week - yada, yada, yada!

The thing I am most excited about is that we are going to raise money for our favorite charity! You can pick your own charity or you can use the one I am going to choose.

You will assign a $ figure to your goals. However much you want or can give. This is totally up to you.

Every day that you complete your goal, you will put money toward it. Then at the end of the month, we will all send in our collection!

I am planning on 3 goals and assigning $1 per goal. That will be $90 to go to my charity ( I haven't decided which one to donate to yet). You don't have to donate that much, as I said, do what you feel comfortable with. If it is a penny per goal, that is perfectly fine.  You can donate canned goods to a food bank, make this work for YOUR favorite charity!

I have planned out my goals, now I just have to pick my charity.  There are so many to choose from.  I will decide tomorrow and let you know!

I do know that my workout will be Les Mills Pump with TurboFire HIIT workouts and walking.  I will be burning up that darned Fitbit!  

I will be continuing my vegan diet, my meal plan is one of my goals!

So, will you be participating in the fun.  Just think in 30 days we can help someone else, while we help ourselves!


  1. I am starting this the middle of August, I am just waiting for my bonus so that I can join a running club and I also want to join yoga;) I'll let you know how it goes on my side!

  2. GREAT! I love that you are going to join in the fun! I love yoga, just need to do it more often! Can' wait to hear how it goes for you!
