We survived Hurricane Sandy. Thankfully, our power never went out and all our friends and family are safe as well. We spent our 3 days off from school, hanging out at home, playing board games, and just enjoying the crazy life break. Sadly, our Church suffered damage but luckily our Pastor discovered it soon enough that they could get a company to come in to salvage everything. To everyone affected in New York and New Jersey in Mamavation, my love and prayers go out to you girls!
I started the 2 week challenge last week and OUCH! Bob Harper has me doing things I would never ever EVER try on my own…burpees, squat jumps…no thank you! My leg and butt muscles have been hurting since last Monday. I know that soreness is a good thing, it means muscles are getting worked out in ways they aren't use to which means I will tone up more. But that knowledge does not make it hurt less. One more week ladies, we can do this!
I was a good girl this past week in the food department. The only candy I ate was UNREAL and it was only a little bit. And since UNREAL is so great I feel like it's not as bad 😉 I have not braved the scales yet. Some of you girls weigh yourself more then once during these challenges, my hat goes off to you. I avoid the scale until the end, we are not good friends you know.
Seriously though, November already?! I feel like the panic of getting everything organized for Thanksgiving/Hubby's Birthday and Christmas just smacked in the face. I shop all year for gifts, it is how I save money, but the meal planning and crazy schedules are what get me. Shelley posted this week about needing a weekend with nothing to do and she thought one was coming up in 2014…that is exactly how I feel. I could use a nice snow storm to force us all to stay home.
CALIFORNIA FRIENDS: PLEASE GET OUT AND VOTE YES ON PROP 37 TOMORROW. TELL THE USA WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT IS IN OUR FOOD!!!

My booty and legs were screaming at me too! These 2 week challenges definitely kick your butt, but in a GREAT way.
So glad to hear you were spared from the storm.
Have a great week!
I agree, it is great! But when it hurts to sit down it’s hard to see the greatness lol!
I’ve been shopping to get ahead of the game as well. I know what you mean about trying to get things all together in this crazy crazy time. I’m loving hearing about all of y’all’s adventures with the Bob Harper workouts! 🙂
I keep a running list of people I have to buy for, Christmas, Birthdays, etc and shop as I find great deals. My husband use to laugh at me but I’m like do you know how much money I save us?! 🙂
great job!!!! Glad you faired well during the hurricane 🙂
Glad you are doing well with the challenge and from Sandy.
Omg, my whole body is sore still too! I’m glad it’s not just me! I did the Bob Harper Inside out series last winter when I was trying to lose baby weight and they kicked my booty, definitely try those after this! Love the yoga and strength ones.
I’m glad you guys are doing well after the hurricane!
