First let me say CONGRATS to all you girls that have done the SEPTEMBER 30 day challenge! I'm so proud of you! September is almost over and now you can look back and say, that wasn't that bad :)

NOW, my September was a little different. The month was filled up with visitors and I'm ashamed to say I didn't do much on working out nor did I watch what I ate but things are changing! October is a new month and for all of you that didn't do the September challenge, lets do it together in October! I started Weight Watchers on Monday and will keep a food journal and my plan is to be active at least 30 minutes a day 6 days a week. Let's try to keep each other motivated, if you have any pictures, recipes, work out ideas, please email them my way and I will post them on the blog for you.


Hope everyone had a great weekend! I'm off to Chic Fil A for a grilled chicken sandwich, which is only 5 points!

It's the light at the end of the tunnel! All you 30 Day Challenge bad asses keep up the good work and finish strong!

Ps ~ I've already done Weight Loss Yoga & plan on sweating it out later with the Shred & Cardio

Pss ~ I was in Target on Saturday & found MANY ways to spend $100!

Show me your Calendar ~ Tuesday SEPTEMBER 22

Hey Ladies! I do apologize for my lack of updates last week. Unfortunately, I had a family emergency last week and spent more time thinking than I did blogging. Lucky for you, I also spent some time getting my workout on! I did skip 2 days, one at the hospital, one at the funeral, but was diligent the other days!
I decided to mix it up and let my favorite at-home trainers hold up my calendar this week! The Biggest Loser came back last week and it put me in such a Bob & Jillian mood that I put BL Yoga back into the rotation! If any of y'all are look for a good yoga video, I've said it before, but this is a great one!
I was thinking yesterday while doing the Shred that September has FLOWN by! Can y'all believe that we've almost made it through? I also thought, while I was doing Level 1 on September 21st that some of you MIGHT be beating yourself up because you think everyone must be on Level 3 by now {and MAJOR props to those who are}, but DON'T! I did Level 1, because it's challenging to me, makes me pour sweat & I don't have to take a 5 second breather every other move. So, I do Level 1 at the end of September!
Now your turn ~ show me your calendar!

it's the freaking weekend!

All right Fat Chicks~ The weekend is here! Let me challenge you to not take the ENTIRE weekend off!

Christina visited last week & before we had all our Saturday fun we went for a walk. It's amazing how fast an hour goes by when you're gabbing with your girlfriend!

Even if your girlfriends are far away ~ conference them into your walk! I talked with Allie for another hour today!

Instead of complaining that you're man is boring you to death with football ~ Get your Shred On! Get your Run on! Take a nice walk! Get your 20 minutes in! We're almost 1/2 way through September!

Show me your Calendar ~ Tuesday 9.8.09

Happy Tuesday everyone! How was your week of workouts? Was it hard to get in the routine of working out or were you pumped to get started?

My week was good! I was busy busy at work with the labor day promotion, and on the personal side I was focusing on my half marathon. I had to approach my workouts with intention, because I wanted them to prepare me for the race & not hinder me in the race!

When you make my calendar larger you see that I varied my workouts throughout the week with the 30 Day Shred, Biggest Loser Yoga, Walking & running.

This week I'm hoping to do more running & shredding! I forgot how much I loved the shred & I'll probably start doubling up the routines very soon!

Now it's your turn! ~ show me your calendar, but don't forget to tell us when to look! I wish you many good workouts this week! Xoxo

Show me your Calendar ~ Tuesday

I was thinking about it this morning, and why don't we get a FULL week of workouts in & post those calendars on Tuesday?

Doesn't make sense to get them all up and posted on FRIDAY when we just started on Tuesday!

DON'T and I repeat DON'T slack off this weekend!

Think about all the stuff you can buy with your giftcard while you're working out!

love, love!

~Day 1 Down~ ***GIVEAWAY***

So, how did it go? I saved my Shred for the end of the day & like a nut case I DREADED IT! I've been training for a marathon for the past 4 months and honest to gawd, when Jillian was going through the introduction I had a nervous tummy! Of course it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be & even though my arms are JELLO it went by fast & the cardio part was a snap. Let me get this out in the open - I hate doing abs. Jillian is the ONLY person that can get me to do abs. Not sure why I have a complete aversion to them, but I'd rather put my body through ANYTHING else to not have to do abs! Hopefully Jillian can get me over this mental block!

I've learned through my marathon training, that I am mentally better if I'm counting backwards. That means ~ only 29 days to go! Already out of the 30s! If you ever spend multiple hours running you begin marking strange milestones.

***GiveAway Time***

To make things easier one of our *Challengers* Amy, created a calendar to print out to write in daily workouts to keep track of progress. I loved it so much I thought, "How can I incorporate this into the challenge?" Then I thought... we need a GiveAway. How can we make this calendar apart of the GiveAway? {If you would like for us to email you a copy of this calendar, please let me know!}

SNAP ~ At the end of each week all those who are interested in participating in The FourFatChick's 30 Day Challenge will post a picture of their completed calendar on their BLOG & link back to http://www.fourfatchicks.blogspot.com/. Then leave us a comment so we can visit your blog & see your calendar! GET CREATIVE WITH YOUR CALENDAR! Decorate it, Take it places, Pose with it, most importantly FILL IT UP!

What's at stake? IF you stick to The FourFatChick's 30 Day Challenge, workout every day of September for at least 20 minutes & post a picture of your weekly calendar you will be entered in a drawing.



You read that right. A $100 GiftCard to Target could be YOURS in 30 days if you choose to complete this challenge. AND ~ because I was busy working on Tuesday & you won't read this until Wednesday I'm going to go ahead and let y'all join the challenge a day late. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE ~ feel free to invite your friends to join in the challenge!

~I chose Target because I LOVE their workout clothes & that they give back to the community.
