Slimmer by December. // AnnaMarie B.

A huge thank you to Fit Camper AnnaMarie B., who emailed me asking if she could host a November challenge.  I responded with a resounding, YES!  After all, the success of this group relies on us all working together and motivating one another.  Without further adieu, I hand it over to AnnaMarie..........

Morning Hookstars! I am so excited to announce the November weight loss/exercise challenge starting over at Mama Laughlin’s Fit Camp this week!

With the October Jillian Challenge concluding this Wednesday I (like quite a few other ladies at Fit Camp) was beginning to get nervous about November and all the potential set-backs it could possibly bring, so I started brainstorming and came up with the Slimmer by December challenge to help keep us motivated throughout the month—and what’s more motivating than FREE SHIT!!

That’s right bitches; the lady who loses the most between November 1 and December 1 will be receiving:

-A Ruffles With Love Team Mama Tank


-A BIC Band

*What can I say? I love you bitches and want to say thank you for all the support this group continues to give me.*

Seeing as the calendar and reward sticker idea from the October challenge was such a motivational hit, we’ll be keeping that and I have created a new calendar for November. However, instead of just Jillian workouts, the challenge this month requires participants to come up with their own workout plan, taking individual schedule needs into consideration, with the one requirement that participants complete SOME type of exercise EVERY DAY!!

I also ask, that in order to be in the running for the prizes, each person participating share their plan and a photo of their sticker filled November calendar under the Fit Camp’s event section for this challenge (the "Slimmer by December" event will be posted on the morning of November 1st), as well as recording your Starting Weight by 11:59pm November 1 and Final Weight by 11:59pm December 1 in the event spreadsheet.  Yes, you've read that correctly!  This challenge only calls for two weigh-ins.  

Considering the amazing boost that “clean eating prep” gives to weight loss, I will be posting my own food prep once a week along with grocery lists, recipes, and nutritional info. This should be a great resource for anyone who is serious about staying on track/getting on track and succeeding in this challenge and through the holidays.

So let’s accept this challenge, ladies and not (once again) put our health on hold until “after the holidays when everything slows down”. Instead let’s support and motivate each other to stay on track through this shit storm that is the holiday season, and compete for some pretty awesome prizes at the same time :)

AnnaMarie B.

AnnaMarie B. is a wife and mom of two boys battling the last bit of baby weight (and then some). She found the Mama’s blog in May and decided to get serious about her health (for real this time!) in September 2012 with the support of MLFC. She has currently lost 7.5lbs with another 18lbs to lose to hit her goal weight.

    2. You just need to post your calendar (filled in with your exercise plan) on the event wall! Every week, I will post pictures/meal plan/shopping list/nutritional info for clean eating prep! But, I encourage you ladies to also post your before photos, measurements, or anything else you'd like to share!

  7. The most weight or the largest percentage of weight based on the original weigh in? Just wondering. If a lady has less to lose overall, it would be hard to win this the first way. =)

  8. I love it! Thanks for taking this on AnnaMarie! I am always way more likely to keep on track when it's a part of a challenge!

  9. I LOVE it and like you have this last bit of weight to loose. I would like to loose about 8-10 lbs, I have three little ones and I am inching toward 40! Weight is so much harder to loose after the age of 35. My littlest is 2 and a half, I gained the least amount of weight with him and it is the hardest to loose. My girls are just turned 7 and just turned 5, I swear even the handful of years make a big difference in your metabolism and getting these damn pounds off!!

  11. I just glanced at the calendar and thought the pic said Happy Skanksgiving! LOL!! But seriously, thanks for all your work- I get to put my sticker chart up next to my 2 year old's bedtime chart- hopefully both are full by the end of the month!
