Now isn’t that a mouthful!!?
November marks the one-year anniversary of The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. ONE YEAR! In the past year, we’ve had 6 weight loss challenges, several fitness challenges, and mini-challenges galore. We have members who’ve been with us from day 1, and we’ve been joined by so many wonderful people along the way. We are grateful for each and every one of you, and what you’ve brought to the Sisterhood! We’ve also had the support of some amazing companies, large and small, during our first year. Some of whom we approached and others who came to us because they knew we had something special here at the Sisterhood.
So, to kick off our anniversary, or Shrink-a-Versary as we like to call it, we’re starting a brand new challenge today! As always, this challenge will focus on losing weight, or shrinking, but we’ll also be throwing in an awesome fitness challenge as well. AND, to thank each and every one of you, and celebrate our Shrink-a-Versary in style, we’ll be having a giveaway-a-day extravaganza starting on the 1st and running through the entire month of November. Thirty amazing giveaways in 30 days!
Our fitness challenge is going to be a blast this time around, too. On November 9th, we’ll all lace up our walking and running shoes and start logging our miles! That’s right, this time our challenge will be one everyone can take part in, whether you walk or run, indoors or outdoors, rain or shine! You don’t have to have any fancy equipment, just a pair of comfy shoes and the gumption to get up and get moving. Each weigh-in (starting November 11th) we’ll report our weight AND our miles, and at the end of the challenge we’ll tally up the pounds lost and miles walked/ran by all of our members! Our Biggest Shrinker and our Globetrotting Champ.
Here’s the skinny:
- Each Wednesday you’ll weigh-in and blog about your results. Then you’ll come to the Sisterhood and leave your permalink (link to your post) in the comments section of the weigh-in post. After you’ve done that, make sure to go around to all of your Sisters (and Brothers) blogs and leave them some Sisterhood love!
- Starting November 1st, we’ll have a giveaway each day, so you’ll want to make sure and stop in each day to enter. You’ll have several chances to win, and each giveaway will end at midnight Pacific time that day. Winners will be announced the next morning.
- Our fitness challenge will kick-off on November 9th, the day after the Sisterhood’s virtual EA Sports Active 5K, and run until the end of this challenge, Wednesday December 16th.
