Holiday Challenge!

Can you believe it’s Labor Day already??  Today feels like fall and I could not be happier.  Right now it’s 56 degrees and sunny.  As much as I love summer, fall is really my favorite season.  Comfort food, pumpkins, crunchy leaves on the ground – I love it!

What I don’t love is that the holidays seems to be a time where I don’t really watch what I eat.  My brother knows all too well – he seems to fall off the wagon from Halloween and doesn’t seem to catch himself until the new year.   We both don’t want to do that – I have 18 pounds to get to my 140 pound goal, and I plan to be there on January 1 come hell or high water.  Because I know I can and also so I can be lifetime at WW and not have to pay anymore! 😀

I know several of you wanted to do another challenge, but to make it easy on me, can you leave a comment to this post and I’ll put a new page up for our challenge.  Whatever goal you want to achieve, it’s totally up to you. 😀

With these falling temperatures, I always want to bake bread.  Yesterday I made a couple loaves of artisan bread, and saved the rest to make grilled pizza for lunch today – I mean, it’s been more than 7 days since I last had pizza!  You can find the recipe here.

I made one black olive (need to add more olives next time) but my favorite was the rosemary bread.  I ended up making a delicious grilled cheese sammie with it.

Hannah and I went thrifting yesterday with my SIL – some creepy things out there!

I bought a new pair of shoes for work – I looked this brand up on the internet and they sell for around $100 and I got them for $14!  Helen, have you heard of this brand before?

So its 118 days to New Years – I have 18 pounds to lose by then – let me know if you are in on the challenge! 😀
