Ariana aka "The Cake Runner"


Update: I got pretty down on myself about my running/exercise goals this week. It has been a huge struggle for me to find the time and energy to run as much as I would like between wife, mom, and church responsibilities. I've actually been in tears as I've barely tied my running shoes when our sweet baby starts to cry. 

I am SO grateful for Sundays and the opportunity we have to share in the Gospel with others and refocus on what is most important. We had wonderful talks and I had a nice discussion with my friends that really lifted my spirit and reminded me of my divine nature. We have such great worth as children of God. 

So, basically, I'm feeling recharged and happy with what I was able to accomplish, despite not reaching my mileage goal.

Scripture Study: Met my 6 page a day average goal
Exercise: Only ran twice and got 5.5 miles in (10 is the goal)
Weight: Still 165

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chelsea aka "The B-Ball Beauty"


Update: I'm so excited because I actually completed my goals this week!  I was able to read my scriptures 6 times this week, and it really made a difference in how I felt each day.  I also was able to work out 4 times this week, and I got to do some really fun things! On Monday, Aaron and I went to the gym, ran on the elliptical, and lifted weights. On Tuesday, we played pick up football with some friends. On Wednesday I went on a 2.5 mile run, and on Thursday I played volleyball with the Relief Society members for women's stake volleyball.  I had so much fun! I am loving this challenge and it makes me feel great that I met my goals this week!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Aubrie aka "The Delightful Dixie Chick"


Update: This week I have done great! I have gone running every other day, as I am planning on running a 5k on Thanksgiving. On the other days, I did other workouts or sports. I played pickle ball as one of those sports. For service, I helped someone pack and also helped give rides to the LDS missionaries.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Amber aka "The Charming Chemist"



Update: This last week I didn't do so well with my goals. I kept working on the prayer/music goal, but missed 2 nights of prayer as I fell asleep before saying them. I read the Proclamation to the World, which is the start of another experience, but haven't followed through with the rest of the requirements. Hopefully life calms down a bit this week so that I can catch back up!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Becca and Daniel
aka "The Dynamic Duo"



Update:  Daniel has run 4 miles total. I've done 4.10 hours of workouts.

The Helper


 

Update: I helped my mom this week by bringing things to her when she couldn't leave the baby.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Impeccable Party Planner


Update: Coming soon!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Melanni aka "The Diva of Design"


Update: 

I have not missed any days of my scripture study. Here is where I've read to so far. 
(I started this in the middle of September.)

Book of Mormon: 2 Nephi 32
D&C: Section 40
Ensign: I finished October's issue and have been alternating conference talks with articles on lds.org
Eating: 5 perfect days, 2 days where I ate more than one treat. (My friend brought me chocolate cake! And I'm nursing! Just excuses, I know:)
Weight progress: I lost 1 pound so I'm at 135

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Riannon aka "The Motivational Marathoner"


Update: I met all my exercise goals last week. I am loving having this as motivation. My long run was 8 miles and my fastest mile of the week was 7:30. Scale stayed the same, but that's ok. I have been eating really clean as well. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Becca aka "The Sunshine Swimmer"




Update: I read scriptures every day except one. I haven't eaten any refined sugar, except the frozen gluten free pizza which had sugar in the sauce I realized after eating it. I have been moody and overly tired and I think it's sugar withdrawal. It should be over soon and then it will be worth it.

I went swimming twice, but didn't exercise at home at all. That will be my focus this coming week.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Becky aka "Mayhem Momma"


Update: 


Short-term Progress:
1. I had 5 good workouts.  100%
2. I had two naughty meals, so 5/7 days.  :(  71%
3. 'In house' cheating did NOT happen at all!  100%

Long-term Progress:
1. Back pain has been low on average. 
2. I'm down 2 pounds!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You are all so amazing! It has been really uplifting for me to see how different our goals are, but how we can still encourage each other and be happy and proud of our successes (whether big or small). Good luck to everyone this week!

Monday

Scripture Study: Read Jacob Chapters 1-5 (15 pages)

Activity: Walked 0.5 mile with The Historian, Miss Sunshine, and Twirly Girl; and we all took turns pushing Sweet Baby in the stroller. It was nice. :o)

Baked an orange cake with Twirly Girl and frosted it with orange frosting. We decorated it with chocolate chips to look like a jack-o-lantern for Family Home Evening.

Thursday

Scripture Study: Read 2 Nephi Chapters 19-25 (12 pages)

I really like verse 23 in 2 Nephi, chapter 25.

"For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do."

I think this verse describes the whole Book of Mormon very well. When I read it, I feel like I can hear the voices of the prophets crying out to us to listen, and I can feel how much they loved their children and wanted them to follow the Savior. I am grateful for The Book of Mormon and the testimonies of the prophets within it.

Activity: Ran 2 miles. Walked 0.25 mile before and 0.25 mile after.

(2.5 miles for the day.)
