December Challenge – 2018 – Week 4
Day 22 – Sunday, December 23th
Yet another non work day. I think work is trying to starve me out. I’m not sure. Whatever, I have so many other things to do it keeps me super duper busy. Last minute everything! I got my challenge done in three sections. The squats are getting hella hard. There are so many! I feel like I should have everything of steel by now… and yet.
Day 23 – Monday, December 24th
I went to my mom’s house and started cooking. Cooking all the carbs that I so wanted to eat! My breaks from cooking were filled with the challenge workout and running to get last minute things from the store. At least I got it done.
Day 24 – Tuesday, December 25th
Merry Christmas! I was off work again today. Cooking, cleaning… just a small amount of socializing. Holidays are so much work. I did get my work out in. I went into my mom’s garage when I was tired of dealing with humans and did a few exercises at a time.
Day 25 – Wednesday, December 26th
I worked today. I was scheduled for 10 hours but it was super boring! Everyone stayed home to have left overs I guess. I got off early went to fix my flat tire. Took my sister’s dog for a run and then did my workout. I also ate a couple hand fulls of mini candy bars. Umm… oops?
Day 26 – Thursday, December 27th
Work was boring but I passed the time training someone. That was fine. I did my workout. The squats man. My legs should be smaller. I don’t know though, I feel bloaty and yuck today. It’s probably all the really bad food I’ve eaten this week. At least I’m still on track with this challenge. I can’t believe it’s almost over and the new year already. This year has just flown by. Oh well, I’m off work for the weekend now! Whooo Hoo!
Day 27 – Friday, December 28th
I was off today. Three day weekend for me. Yay! I got up early and went to my mom’s. There I did some squats while talking to her. Then we went and got breakfast and then we went to Walmart. And then I went to my sister’s house to clean. And then I went and applied for a passport for the first time in my life. That was many hours of sitting, standing, squatting in a waiting room. SO many squats. They are so painful. I also got my monthly friend today. The big jerk. Could wait. But whatever. I can’t believe it’s about to be a brand new year.
Day 28 – Saturday, December 29th
Other than the challenge I didn’t do a thing today! So lazy. I was Sloth Mode for real! Two more days of this challenge. I’m so so looking forward to squat rest for a little while.

Progress on My Goals
Well… hmm. There are two more days of this challenge and the month. I don’t think I’ll be able to drop 4.6 pounds between now and the 31st but hey, I did the best I could. This challenge was hard and I worked very hard on this challenge.
I’m proud of myself for not giving up and continuing to do it every single day. Squats HURT! That’s no joke. I don’t think I will continue to do as many of them, but they are definitely on my work out list.
