Today is the last day of the month so you are probably wondering how I did on the ab challenge?  I completed 16 out of 30 days.  I did modify the challenge instead of doing 300 repetition a day I did 125 to 150 reps.  I have noticed a difference in my stomach, it feels tighter even under the layer of fat.  I am glad I took a picture at the beginning of the month so tomorrow I will take another and compare and keep you posted.    Since I didn't get 100 percent on this challenge  I am going to do a re challenge myself  and try to increase my reps complete the 30 days.  
I have decided to also add a food challenge.  NO FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER.  I thought this was an appropriate challenge since Rob and I are starting our spending money budget tomorrow.  We are really trying hard to pay off our debt this year so we now have to have an allowance :(
On Friday my sister and I went apple picking!  That was quite an adventure we got lost going to the orchard so instead of  taking 30 minutes to get there it took over an hour but I really can't complain it was a beautiful drive.  The leaves are starting to change colour which is always so beautiful!   When we finally arrived it also turned out to be a farm.  We got to see cows, goats, and chickens.  We picked 60 apples in total and they are delicious!    We also bought honey that was fresh from that day yum!    I would definitely do this again.  First time for everything.  Here is few pictures my sister took of the day. 

These baskets are not ours I had a lulu bag and a zebra print bag I guess my sister thought these baskets looked better lol
Fall is here!


This cow was totally chowing down!

I was trying to be "one" with the apples I was high up in the trees! 

I got a haircut and colour for fall.  Here's a picture.  I love the cut but I am still getting use to the colour in few washes I think I will like it better.

    1. I think that's a great idea Mom.. :) I hope my skin shrinks back.... I really do not want loose skin.

  3. We don't do fast food so that one is easy for me, but I'll have to work up to the Ab Challenge! I can try!

    Love the pictures at the apple orchard. What a fun thing to do.

    1. I would love if you would join me in my abs challenge :) Your lucky you don't eat fast food. I eat a lot of Subway which I guess is healthier then other chains but cooking at home is way better and cheaper I just wish I liked to cook.

      Thanks! It was nice to have some sister time :)

  4. Your sister takes great pictures!!

    No challenges for me, but good luck on yours...both sound great!

    1. Thank you :) I passed along the message to my sister and it made her happy you said that. She has been a photography for a couple of years now and she does great work :)
