Photo Challenge Overload

Trying to catch up on some challenges, instead of having a gazillion posts, I'm gonna fit them all in one. I hope everyone had a good weekend. We did, but found out we probably have a flea problem. It ticks me off. This week, I'm waging war against those little things. It grosses me out, but can happen when you have a pet.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Capture the Sky

This was taken with my camera phone, it was a quick shot, but I like the sun rays.

Macro Monday

This Life is Sweet


Get Fit - Get Healthy

This week they talked about eating breakfast & being confident. I eat breakfast everyday {check}. Having confidence is a challenge everyday & I think it is for most women. I grew up always on the heavier side. But, nothing was ever negatively said about me. I was never put down or made fun of. It really bothered me when, as a teen, with my friends, who were skinnier than me, always looked in the mirror at their flaws. They would say, "Oh I'm fat" or "I hate my nose." I would look in the mirror and not see anything like that, but It would always make me feel bad because I was heavier than them. I always thought they were crazy. Just accentuate the positive!

1. Height: 5’9″, weight: Not going there now. When I weighed on Tuesday, I was down 0.8. I weighed again Saturday and was down 5lbs. We'll see what the official number is tomorrow.

2. Your fitness challenge(s) for this week: Some type of cardio at least 3 times a week.

3. Your health challenge(s) for this week: I'm happy with the way I eat, I need to work on portion size and more water.

4. How well did it go: Not bad, I don't sit much. Always moving and lifting a 20lb little monkey.

5. Failures and slip-ups: Last night, Some friends took us out to dinner at an Italian restaurant. I should have gotten a salad, but I got pasta. Only ate half though.

6. Weekly challenge wisdom: Time will go by whether you take care of yourself or not,but if you take care of yourself, you'll gain more time.

7. Advice to fellow GET FIT members: You owe it to yourself, to love yourself enough to take care of your health.

8. Self Portrait:
