Winners have challenges, post advice, solutions

Thank you to everyone who participated in Comment Contest Tuesday, which was part of September’s Monthly Challenge.

Many amazing women posted their challenges and so many posted advice and solutions to others’ challenges. The support that everyone shared with each other was truly amazing.

Go Fit Girl! tries to be a regular person with everyday problems and issues. The thing she can’t relate to is the other moms. I was so grateful for so many moms giving each other support and advice.

Many talked about not having enough time in the day. We can all relate to that one, right?

Some of the challenges being faced were: Running around for all of their kids’ activities. Getting to bed on time and consistently. Reading. Getting in regular exercise. Getting to a yoga class regularly. Spending too much time on the Internet. Having more time to ourselves. Not having support from loved ones when we need something just for No. 1. Guilt! Being happy. Trying to get in those fruits and vegetables. Taking walks during the work day. Not creating drama or taking on anyone else’s.

OK, the random drawing winners are as follows:

Comment Contest Tuesday

Alright, today’s Comment Contest Tuesday runs in connection with September’s Monthly Challenge.

The Monthly Challenge asks readers to think about the things they don’t have time for (a fitness class, shopping for fresh veggies instead of eating/serving frozen meals, cooking at home regularly, going for nightly walks after dinner, getting up in the morning for a 20-30 minute yoga practice, making it to the gym at least three times a week, going to bed at a regular time, etc.)

This Comment Contest Tuesday, starting today and running through Tuesday, Sept. 17, asks readers to post their challenges and wants and needs. Other readers can suggest ways to achieve these challenges.

For each challenge a reader posts their name will get thrown into a random drawing. For each suggestion to challenge posted, the reader will get their name thrown in a random drawing twice.

This is a two-week long Comment Contest Tuesday, as I want to encourage readers to post their many challenges and for my readers to take the time to come up with solutions for each other.

You have a full two weeks to post challenges and solutions. Every single challenge post gets your name thrown in one … Continue reading

September Monthly Challenge

OK, for September’s Monthly Challenge I dug into my stockpile of ideas from readers from a Comment Contest Tuesday a few months back.

Thanks, Nicole W. for this idea.

Normally we have one nutrition challenge and one exercise challenge. This month they are kinda combined into one.

This Monthly Challenge also asks for a little extra participation by GFG! readers. You’re ready for this, right?

Like I stated yesterday, I need commitment and support from my readers. You can really show it to me with this Monthly Challenge.

This challenge breaks down throughout this month.

Week 1) Think of things you don’t have time for (a fitness class, shopping for fresh veggies instead of eating/serving frozen meals, cooking at home regularly, going for nightly walks after dinner, getting up in a little earlier for a 20-30 minute yoga practice, making it to the gym at least three times a week, going to bed at a regular time, etc.).

Week 1 1/2 and Week 2) Figure out how to make time for at least one thing. Bonus points for taking on a nutrition AND exercise challenge. I will make this a Comment Contest Tuesday this coming Tuesday, the third. Readers can … Continue reading
