I'm Accepting the Hot 100 Challenge

Despite my fear of failure challenges I have decided to join this challenge. Two reasons:

1. I'm pretty sure I've only seen a maintain this month and I think it's time to step things up a notch. Baby steps, more like crawling for me, were good the first four months, but it's time for this baby to start learning how to walk.
2. I want to face a few fears and not use the phrase "baby steps" as an excuse not to push myself a little bit.

So, I talked it over with my husband, told him the goals I was thinking about and he brought out a good point about how to set my goals for this challenge. I had one goal for each section, weight loss, exercise and eating. He mentioned that the exercise and eating were good goals in and of themselves and the weight loss goal was good by itself, but one might not necessarily mean the other will happen. He suggested I pick one group or the other as my goal and whatever I do to reach that goal will probably end up affecting the other group.

I hope this makes sense. I'm trying to keep it short here.

So, now when you read the next post you'll understand how I got to my decision to accept the challenge. :)


  1. Great! I think it's so great that your husband is so supportive of you! You are a lucky woman Leah. And you can do this!

  2. I am glad you accepted.
