Down to the Wire!

Are you all ready for CHA? I am so super busy with the final preparations, that this is just a short and simple entry. I will announce the Cosmo Cricket Dinner Winner tomorrow morning. If you have not had a chance to get entered into this contest, read this entry for all the info.

Check back here for updates from CHA. I'll be posting everday on the road.

One more thing. we have our first $5.00 charity contribution on our Health Nut contest (if you don't know about this contest, get filled in here). It seems that on Lindsay's and Eric's trip, Lindsay used a taboo word. Although I'm holding him to his $5 donation, I will say that what we are referring to as the $5.00 diet, has not been cheated on....... we are almost 4 weeks free from all junk food. That's 4 weeks with absolutely no chocolate of any kind! Somehow I have not died yet.

WOW! 4 weeks with no junk food, I am IMPRESSED! (do you get to take a break at CHA?)

Julie said...

No, no break for CHA. I will be strong!

Lulu said...

Good for you!!!! Do you still crave it, or have the craving dissipated?

ScrapMomOf2 said...

Wow, 4 weeks! Impressive! Congratulations! I wouldn't have made it. Not even close!

Julie said...

Lulu, not only do I still crave it, I am still having weird dreams about sneaking things like chocolate and marshmellows (I don't even like marshmellows).

Julie said...

Sorry, Eric has corrected my spelling it's marshmallows!

Congratulations on your healthy healthy lifestyle now! Junk foods are hard to resist but with strong determination & discipline, hey, kudos to you! Someday, you'd start to feel sick just by thinking of it. Believe me!!! :)
Have fun at CHA Julie, Eric & Lindsay

Julie keep it up. It's a long hard road but you'll make it. Me on the other hand, I gave up trying to be good somewhere around 5 years old.

And Lindsey..you can do it..those words can be sneaky but you can beat them down.

I wish I were going to CHA, I would love to see you all.

Donated $15 to the Special Olympics-and I'm not working with a $5 penalty rate. That's all I'm saying!

I know what you mean re the weird dreams - I am doing WW at the moment and I am dreaming about points lol - but hey week 1 - 4.1 kg loss woo hoo.
Have fun at CHA - remember to take some healthy snacks.

Nikki Love said...

being without snacks and chocolate would be like being without scrapbooking.... just impossible for me..lol

Congrats on your strong will ;)

I could handle the junkfood, but seriously - not the chocolate. Nothing like a candy kiss going from my coat pocket to my mouth on a winter's drive home from work at night. I congratulate you both on your determination and stick-to-it-ness!
