I've signed up for the Spring Chick Challenge, started by Stormy at Big Butt Theory as a way to get myself motivated for the New Year and get off to a good start. The challenge starts on Monday 2nd Jan and ends Monday 19th March, and here is what I am committing to in that time...

  • Comfortably run 20 minutes without stopping
  • Comfortable size 16
2. Nutrition
  • Water 2l per day
  • 29 PP
  • Tracked on WW esource
  • NO Tuesday post-weigh in blow outs...
3. Exercise
  • 3 hours per week - either 3 hours or 6 half hours - running, zumba, wii fit, swimming
4. Blog at least twice a week, with one of these being a challenge update.
