Biggest Loser; Challenge Accepted! Week 5 update

So it's been 5 weeks since we started and I'm about 15 pounds lost! I feel great! Hungry, but great! We have been trying really hard to not do our favorite late night snacking. We are eating less, but more often and working out more. On Saturday we went on a 20 mile bike ride! I was so proud of myself, it was tough, but I did it and want to do it again. I love how biking has become a family hobby!

So as I mentioned in a introduction post about this contest, the person who loses the most percentage wins the $140 and the person in 2nd place gets their $20 back. After another month of not getting pregnant, I have found new motivation! Lose weight and you can get pregnant!!!

Now I fully understand that my weight might not be what's keeping me from getting pregnant, but I think it is a possibility. So instead of thinking what I could spend with the $140 it's I wonder when my due date would be, I wonder if we will have another boy next or get our little girl!

Chase has held the title so far, but the last 2 weeks he's gained weight back (which suck because he's been working hard too!). I've been in 2nd place most of the time, but slipped into 5th place this past weigh in. But this week has been great so far and everyone is really close to each other it is anyone's game!

Thankful: Day 2 and Ryderbug Boutique

Courtney: I'm grateful for extended family as well. They are so much fun. I love my in-laws too. I'm so glad for the people who married into my family and for the family I married into. I feel like my relationships with them are getting closer and we are hanging out a little more.

Today I hosted a boutique at my house for people to come and sell their items. I had my Ryderbug stuff, Barb did her bags and cards, Ashlee set up Scentsy, Stephanie sells chunky necklaces, Jen did her graphic home prints and invitations, Karen was doing wood signs, and My mom was selling cinnamon rolls and cookies. Then there were 2 other friends there. It was so much fun being surrounded by family! It was a great time. We all had at least one sale and most did really well for being such a small event. Looking forward to giving the spring a try. Definitely again next Fall. It was great to have their support and to be able to support them in their little shops.

Thankful: Day 1


So I wanted to things we are grateful for in November, at least leading up to Thanksgiving. Here are mine and Ryder's answers. Chase can do this if he so pleases...

Courtney: I am grateful for my family! I love them so much and can't imagine life without them. They are such a great support to me in all of my crazy ideas. Seriously they are the best!

Ryder: Rest
