229- Introducing February Challenge Buddy

I'm so ridiculously excited for February, I can hardly stand it.  First off, I have a challenge buddy!  I'll get to her introduction in a second.  Next, I mentioned the other day that I'm ready to break through this mental and physical plateau of mine with renewed structure, supplements, and of course, no grains, no sugar, no dairy, no alcohol, no coffee, and continuing to drink a gallon of water a day.  My post yesterday was really eye opening for me, and now I feel I know what I need to do.

My February challenge buddy is someone I've never met, but I've been a follower of her blog for at least 1.5 years.  I first found her blog through Jack Sh*t's blogroll, and after a few of her posts cracked me up, I was hooked.  Not to mention she is a fellow Pacific Northwester, and has such dry sense of humor, if you aren't paying attention, you just might miss the joke.  I'm so happy to have the Cilley Girl as my challenge buddy this month.  

We have laid out plans for the month out, and decided we would be taking before/after photos, and weighing ourselves.  Cilley's primary focus will be eliminating grains and processed sugars, as she's already done some Paleo experimenting and found out what foods do and don't work for her.  Dairy works for her, potatoes work for her, corn does not.  Diet coke will take the place of her 2 cups of coffee a day.  In summary, her goals for the month are:
1) record all food ingested
2) take fish oil supplement
3) incorporate more veggies and water into diet

My goals for the month are:
1) Firm up my diet - more veggies, portion control
2) Supplements!
3) continue on my coffee hiatus
4) 1 gallon of water per day
5) Shake this plateau

Tomorrow I'll post my January summary and pictures.

  1. I'm pretty sure that "has such dry sense of humor, if you aren't paying attention, you just might miss the joke" is code for "she's not as funny as she thinks she is." ;)

    My last employer (the crazy people) always thought I was being completely serious. I could tell them I spent my weekend shaving a cat and swallowing balloons filed with jello and they would believe me. Made for some awkward moments, let me tell you.
