Abs Challenge Update

I have tried to do the ab workout everyday but I slipped up a few times especially when I was  in NYC but so far I have done 10 out of  17 days. I might moan and groan about doing my monthly challenges and think to myself why am I putting myself through this but in the end I love that it shows my drive to complete something and it also is helping me live a healthier lifestyle.  I am still searching the web to find a new challenge for October, when I do I will let you know. 
( I would love to have abs like this women someday!  Something to work towards)
New Activities

I signed up for another 5 km race it is at the end of October which gives me  exactly six weeks to train.  I started my training today it was a little rough.  I am starting from scratch so I ran one minute, walked one minute for a total  of 20 minutes.  I will increase my running time as the weeks get closer  to the race.  The Race  is called "Rattle me Bones"  it's on the Halloween weekend so most people dress up in costume which sounds super fun to me!

Rob and I put a team together with a  Dodgeball league we played for the first time tonight.  I have to say I was a little nervous I didn't know what to expect?  Since the last time I played I was 12 years old and I was one of those kids who always got out first.    I was shocked to discover how much I loved it.  I even got a few people out.  It's a great game to play with a group of friends and a good way to get out your aggression.    I can't wait to play next week! 
Weight Watchers
As I have said before I love how WW has helped me learn about portion control and I  have noticed an improvement in my veggie and fruit consumption.  My regularity is working like clockwork now!  ( I know T.M.I. but it is important when you are living a healthy lifestyle)   I am having a bit of trouble staying within my daily points but it's a work in progress and I am trying to focus on the positive changes.   

What new activity are you going to try this fall?  and Does anyone have a  suggestion for my October monthly challenge?   

Thanks for Reading
