The Hot 100

I've seen the Hot 100 on several blogs and decided to check it out. I'm one of those chicks who sits on the side and watches life pass me by; I never take chances. Well, I'm stepping out of my comfort zone and joining the challenge.

What is the Hot 100? The Hot 100 is a challenge focused on the last 100 days of 2010. September 23, 2010 starts the clock. From that day forward there are exactly 100 days left in 2010. One hundred days to make this your year. One hundred days to achieve your goals. One hundred days, each and every one of which can be a great day!

This past week, goals have been a major thought mostly geared to weight loss. Following are 3 goals I dedicate for the Hot 100!
  1. Lose 20 pounds! Wow, do you think this can be done with Halloween, Thanksgiving, AND Christmas all around the corner?
  2. Read more to my kids. I love to read, but it seems as though I don't do it enough with them. I want them to understand the importance of reading and the joy of being transported into another world.
  3. Buy sexy underwear! Ok, that might be alittle TMI and I won't go into detail. But, yeah I want to buy sexy underwear just for me.
Edit:  Ok, someone asked about the underwear goal saying that it didn't seem like much of a challenge.  I want to have the confidence to buy it.  I want to know what's under my pants is melt your face off sexy!  Maybe it will give me alittle skip in my step and put a bigger smile on my face.  Maybe with a couple more pounds to lose, I will find the courage up to buy some.

Also can you help me figure out how to put the Top 100 icon in my sidebar?! I can't figure it out!

Brittany, I just right clicked on the picture and saved it to my documents. Then just add the picture widget in the design mode. If you need more instructions, let me know and I will work on something step by step.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! You said you were interested in seeing what my other 2 goals were, but I had listed 4 goals on my post! The weight loss goal was the 4th in a numbered list, which read:

1. To keep track of my calorie intake at least 6 days a week.
2. Average NO MORE than 1500 calories for the days I keep track.
3. Exercise for a MINIMUM of 30 minutes five days a week.
4. To get down to 240 pounds by the end of this year.

I just found you through the Hot 100 challenge. I love that you want to read more with your kids! My kiddo is 9 now and she loves reading as much as I do! In fact, I think we may turn off the screens and just read soon.

When she was little she'd choose one book for me to read and I'd choose one to read to her, every night a half hour before bedtime. It helped her stall less at bedtime, too, because I would go into her room and just start reading. If she wasn't in there and ready by the time my selection was done, she'd miss out getting her choice.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I know what you mean about not taking chances. I'm stepping out of my comfort zone too.

Great goals you have there! I'm still pondering mine.

Welcome to the Hot 100! I think the goals are great. Your thoughts in #1 were part of the original reason for the Hot 100.

Hey - why no followers area?
How can we keep up with your great progress!?

Hey FM! The Hot 100 community is already COOKING! And the accountability and support make all the difference. I love your reading goal - some of my best memories with my son are built around bedtime reading (and bonus: it turned him into a voracious bookworm, just because Mommy couldn't keep up). Good luck on your goals, we're gonna ROCK!
