Join Me For Another 10 Weeks! This is the first week of ten weeks starting October 22, 2012

Hi folks! I'm at it again. I'm going for another 20 pound loss in ten weeks. I've recently had another baby, a little girl, she is now five months old and I'm ready to drop some weight.

It Was So Romantic...

First we held hands and showed off our muscles...

Then, we knocked our knuckles

Slapped our hands...

And I pushed him around...
To get ready to attempt 100 push-ups on our 100 month wedding anniversary.

Then, we did a bunch of push-ups,

And wore ourselves out.

Then we went out to eat. He ordered ribs and I ordered something plain.

Oh. How many push-ups did we do?

I managed to do 62 falling short of my goal of 82, but doing 21 more than I did four weeks ago, and my husband doubled his count from four weeks ago with 48 push-ups. He did 23 push-ups four weeks ago.

How about 101 on our 101st anniversary?

What do you say Daddy Rainmaker? yes?


I wanted to thank you guys for your encouragement and interest in this push-up challenge. Thank you for your congrats on our 100 month anniversary too . And, as for Dawn's question... celebrating the 7th of each month is just something we've done since we've been married. Mostly we just say, "Happy (fill in the blank)-month anniversary" to each other. I guess we're always looking for ways to celebrate finding each other. So, it's not an American tradition...but feel free to make it your own.

We can't wait till our 200 month anniversary...


P.S. It's picture day tomorrow. We took my pictures today and I think I got a few good ones to share with you. I also will be sharing pictures with you that I did NOT post 20 weeks ago(when I lost 20 pounds in 10 weeks) ago because they weren't as flattering.

Hope you're all having a great weekend!
