This was an incredibly hard week to get through. I have heard that the second week of breaking or forming a habit is hardest but I had no idea how hard. Jeesh! So today officially starts my third and final week of the work out challenge and I am approaching it with mixed emotions. Equal parts excitement and dread.

My dear friend Elisa brought up a very interesting point the other day and suggested that I pick a special reward ( not one I already have listed for lbs lost) for the completion of this challenge. I told her I thought it was a great idea and then proceeded to go completely blank with what that prize should be.

So my questions for you dear readers are:

1.) What should my reward be for the completion of this challenge?

2.) What should my next challenge be?

I am trying to keep momentum and would like to continue challenging myself until my goal is reached. Maybe this one could be a food challenge. Like..... making sure I get 5 fruits and veggies every single day. Especially since this is the season of plenty.

Toodle-loo my little chick-a-dees!

What about something soothing since your body just did something it has never been challenged to do. Maybe buy a nice milk bath or get the pedicure woman at your work to give you a foot massage. After all of that my body would be in definite need of repair.

Go forth and kick some ass!!

I agree; you should do something pampering for your body. Maybe a massage or a pedicure or another facial?

As for your next challenge: I think five fruits AND veggies might be too much, but maybe try to do five fruits or vegetables a day?

I'm proud of you girl!

Sweet Googly Moogly! You go, Miss Thing (that's right I'm kickin' it old school)!

Maybe you could eat organic for your next challenge?
