What is this?
The Autumn Slim Down Challenge is a 6-week motivation and support group looking to shed pounds and grow friendships. Participants will be placed into groups randomly. And there will be daily challenges.
How do groups work?
Groups are just another tool participants can use for greater chances of success. Amount of members per group will vary based on how many people want to join.
In your group, you would have a better chance of developing friendships while giving and gaining motivation from your teammates.
What kinds of challenges?
At the beginning of each week, I’ll post challenges that vary from diet changes, switching up workouts, motivating others, and talking about personal experiences on varying topics.
The reason I’m posting them at the beginning of the week is because I want everyone to get a heads up so they can plan ahead. Whether they plan ahead to make sure they can participate or alter challenges in advance so there’s no last minute “I cants”.
Rules and Stuff
★ Reblog this post by August 31st. ★ Likes are discouraged cause it makes the sorting of groups process so much harder. ★ Any bloggers expressing pro-disordered thoughts or practices are asked not to participate. ★ Tag all posts with #autumnslimdownchallenge. ★ Please only participate if you plan on sticking with it. It’s more fun if everyone is enthusiastic.  ★ Groups will be posted by the end of September 1st ♡

Back on Track Challenge:

-eat one more serving of vegetables than you normally would I most certainly did this and I hope to get better at it.

-run at least a half of a mile - nope, but I walked one ;-)

-try and drink 100 oz of water or more! - Eh, not even close. That’s a lot of intake for me.

I’m going to finish reading Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Then continue to Babbit by Sinclair Lewis. Suggested by the amazing livingafitlife I cannot wait to give it a run!

If you’re interested in a shorter story to start with, my I suggest “Consider Her Ways & Others” by John Wyndham. A suggestion by another friend and not one I would have ever considered but so glad I did!

TFW:

You make frozen peanut butter bites for two different occasions and not have a single one for yourself.

Although I did have other delicious treats at the luncheon ;-)

I like to try other people’s delights while they try mine.

All in good fun!

2 1/2 cups powdered(confectionery) sugar

1 tsp vanilla

18 oz natural creamy peanut butter

8 oz semi-sweet chocolate

Make the balls the size you like and place them on a tray. Freeze for an hour. Melt the chocolate and dip the pb balls with as much as you like.

Pretty simple and so delicious!
