Fitness challenge

So lately I got a notification about a new fitness challenge offered over at The Domestic Pagan blog ( I thought it was really a fun idea and decided to join. It's called the "Get off your broom" fitness challenge.

The blog owner, Julie, is taking her job as hostess of the challenge really seriously. She is going to be giving weekly mini challenges. Since this is the start her first challenge is take a "before" picture of yourself and take your measurements.

So here is my photos, yuck.

Finally, my measurements.....


Waist- 40

Hips- 49

My goals are to eat healthy. I don't want to follow a diet plan, I want to change my eating lifestyle. Also I would like to start running or at the very least working out more. I have done many diets in the past and found that if you follow them you will lose weight. My problem is a lot of time the limitations are not something I find sustainable. So I need to learn to eat moderately and healthy. The working out more would be part of an overall lifestyle overhaul.

So good luck to everyone involved, I hope we are all successful!


  1. Good Luck to you too!! Can't wait to see the final posts in Dec/Jan!!

  2. Great luck to you too! I'm excited; I'll follow your lead and publish my stats in a few days. Read you around!

  3. P.S. I just drooled at the blackberries on your banner *sigh*

  4. Sarah, you will be surprised how effective just refining your eating habits and watching your portions can be. It sometimes takes a little longer (I lost 25 lbs in 6 months)but the results are sustainable. Sending positive vibes for your success.

  5. Good girl... posting your photo and might I say that you are beautiful. I can see that skinny you in there! Your goals are good ones and I look forward to following your progress! Tomorrow I begin the Drop it Swap it on my blog... it's a fun insightful thing to help us stay motivated plus I will have lots of fitness and recipe things and just plain old fun so come on over to Seraphim's Diner if you have a minute! YOU CAN DO IT!

  6. Hi Sarah, Good luck on the fitness challenge. If we support each other we will reach our goals. :)
    It'll certainly be fun & we can all share tips as we go.

    Good luck vibes flying your way!
