Good day today. Lifted chest and triceps at the gym, walked 5k with my 3 yo in an hour and did a yoga class. Now off to sit on my butt and knit baby stuff for my cousins newborn <3

Oh and I ate well too. But I still hate AF.


I would go with the jogging stroller, too. But I would look on cl first. Maybe you can get both for what you thought you'd spend on one?

I buy whole beans and either grind them myself or have Starbucks do it I occassionally use Cafe Dumond Chickory coffee and it works fine, as is You want a corse grind so it won't sift through into your cup.

Corinne I too would go for the jogging stroller. I have both the mini kurieg an a jogging stroller. My mini kurieg is currently in the cupboard not getting used after 2 years of owning it. My jogging stroller is in the garage not getting used because DD2 reaches and played with the wheels. So definitely take your son with you to see if he can touch the wheels. I am now thinking of investing on a gym membership.

Re: The 25lb Challenge December thread

thanks everyone. I think I am going to get a jogging stroller. I know the keurig makes excellent coffee, but I can't bring myself to spend that much on a coffee maker. It seems too lavish to me. I still have no idea where I'd put a jogging stroller. I'll keep checking CL and if I can't find one I like, I can wait til the end of January for the Babies R Us trade in sale

I hate the Keurig. The coffee maker is expensive the coffee is expensive and it taste the same. It has the silly "prime" issue every now and again. Wish to goodness i would have left that money in the bank.


Kimmie. I had a friend tellin me ALL about it. She is oh...60-70 pounds over weight, which ok, we are all there or been there. But she was eating fries and a big hamburger. Now this particular friend is a sweet soul and meant it w a pure heart, so not the same thing, but I digress-
My response was, "they all work, I've been on every.single.one it's finding the one you can stick with.". She was much more gracious than your friend. And sounds like a much nicer person in general.

I went out and got a ton of healthy food today! I am so excited to start eating healthier. I've been having a lot of nausea (not pregnant) and headaches so I'm going to try to eat less wheat/gluten and see if that helps.

As far as the stroller, I normally run while Alex is at my grandma's, but it would be nice to not to have to go there just to be able to run. Although they live by a bike path and by my house it just hilly. oh, and I don't really have room for a jogging stroller. I keep 2 strollers in my car (single and double) so one would have to come out and I'd have to find a place to keep it in my house
I have a Chariot stroller and it's really nice because the area where the child sits is enclosed. It can be either a bike trailer or a jogging stroller. It's a bit pricey, but you can occasionally find used ones on craigslist for a fair price.

Well the 5 pound loss was motivation enough to go buy some high quality healthy food and start the 30 day shred. I made it through day 1! Tomorrow is going to be brutal...
