Elf 4 Health: Round Two

Check out round one if you haven’t yet!

I will be honest, this wasn’t my best round. It was hard keeping up with all the challenges (especially without internet) and that made it hard to check in with all the other elves.


This round I was paired up with the awesome Lindsay from Authentic Losing. We have a lot in common, and we are on similiar weight loss journeys, it is also awesome that she is local. We haven’t had a chance to get together, but hopefully once the holiday crazies are over we can!


MONDAY: Track your water intake.

Today was move day, so I made sure to drink plenty of water. I had at least 4 or 5 of these babies.

TUESDAY: Clean out your fridge & pantry. Get rid of unhealthy and old items.

Considering we moved into a new house and used everything from our old house, my agenda was more to stock the fridge and pantry with healthy and fresh food, so sort-of win.

WEDNESDAY: Eat 3 servings of veggies by 2 pm.

FAIL. This day was a nightmare, we had a rough night with B, I only had coffee until lunch time and I had grand plans of an omelette and a salad, but I had so much to do so a pb & j was lunch. I had plenty of veggies with dinner though.

THURSDAY: Buy coffee for the person behind you in line.

I didn’t go buy coffee today, so instead I let the guy in a rush in front of me in line at the post office, so sort-of a win.

FRIDAY: Workout with a buddy.

This was exchanged with the weekend challenge. I donated to a few of the Salvation Army stations outside the stores I went to today.

WEEKEND: Donate to a holiday charity in your area.


Exchanged with Friday’s challenge. I ran my final race of 2012 with my bestie, Casey, her brother and a bunch of TNT alumni!


MONDAY: Complete a circuit workout.

I completed one that I pinned, but totally forgot to take a picture.

TUESDAY: Treat yourself to something you’ve been craving.

I treated myself to some ice cream, but it was before bed and during family time, which means no phone time. I am doing awesome at the photo part, huh?

WEDNESDAY: Bake Cookies.

WIN! Our oven was fixed Tuesday, so I made dark chocolate & mint chip cookies.



THURSDAY: Make a casserole for dinner.

Fail again. I had a West Coast friend visiting. We usually see each other once or twice a year, and we like to get Chinese food and play the Wii. Well we could only do the former, so that’s what we did. I enjoyed our time together.

FRIDAY: Pay it forward.

Sort of similar to one from last week. I paid for the person behind me’s coffee, no picture, stealth mode.

WEEKEND: Have a healthy snack before a holiday party.

Nick and I ate dinner before attending a holiday party so we wouldn’t snack too much. Success!

How did your round two go?
