Bank Holiday Challenge!




Now before you all correct me… I know it's 9 weeks till the actual June bank holiday but I'm allowing for Easter, the May Holiday and I'm away for a week too… so this will finish just in time! 

How it's gonna work you ask … 

Put you're name below if you're going to do the challenge for the full 8 weeks… I love seeing people take part and you all motivate each other so much but it takes a lot of time to get everyones weigh ins together and if you only want to sign up for a few weeks, I'll put up some graphics up next week and you can print out and do the challenge at home at your own pace and let me know how you are doing… 

The challenge will run for 8 weeks… there will be a post up every Friday morning (called 'weigh in 4/5/6') for posting your losses … and I'll post up the revised chart on a Monday morning! 




So in keeping with the Bank Holiday theme… Get yourself a little 'piggy bank'… it can be a bottle, jar, teacup, box… whatever you fancy and for every pound you lose… put in a euro, or two euro.. whatever you can part with each week… better still get the boyfriend, wife, flat mate, colleagues, siblings, mum or dad to part with a euro per pound too to support you and the end of it, you'll have at least €8 to spend on you… a new nail polish… a magazine… a treat… No one is going to be a millionaire but you will want to see that pot growing!!!




Half a stone going by the bank holiday can mean a dress size for most of us! With a few long weekends and Easter to contend with it won't be easy but it CAN be done! So who's in?




In other news…  I've been given the all clear by my physio, soooo as long as I follow his training plan for my dodgy knee, I can do the mini marathon on the June Bank Holiday! Fingers crossed eh? YAY!

  7. I am definitely signing up for this. I had started working with a personal trainer in the past couple of weeks, but unfortunately his son is ill so he has had to drop me as a client. I'm rejoining Weight Watchers in the next week so it'll be great to have this to spur me on!

    2. His name is Vinny and his email is vinny@letstrain.ie, he has been through a weightloss journey himself so he can encourage and empathise and my friend says that he is always positive which is great. In the gym they are based in they also do lots of challenges similar to the one you host so it could be a great match for you! My friend has had fantastic results with them so if you go with them I hope you do too :)
