4.The title of your book. Body for Life for Women
I read this book several years ago, and Jennifer has started blogging about this book lately, and gave me the desire to reread it. It talks alot about the emotional journey along with the physical. This journey is VERY MENTAL!!!
Book 2. With the help of Shrinking Jeans, I plan to make '52 Small Changes: One Year to a Happier, Healthier You.' by Brett Blumenthal
5. Guiding quote - I LOVE inspirational quotes!! I have them in my journal, on my computer. Lots of places. This is four of my favorite.
The chief cause of failure and unhappiness is trading what you want most for what you want now.
Failure is not important unless it's the last time you try.
A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.
To be successful, you must decide exactly what you want to accomplish; then resolve to pay the price to get it. Bunker Hunt,
6.The name/blog of your buddy - Dont know who this is yet. Plan to contact by email and by commenting on their blog.
7. A commitment to comment on at least 3 challenger blogs per week for support. They can be the same 3, or different 3 each week. Up to you. I do this!! Sometimes its hard to know what to say. Im not a woman of many words. I know what I would like to say, but dont know the words to use, to get my point across.
8. A vow to NOT WUIT the challenge, thereby abandoning your "buddy" and disappointing the crew. Be accountable to all of us, not just yourself. - No Quitting!!
