SHRINKVIVOR Check-in {November 1} | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Good morning SHRINKVIVORS!! Did you survive Halloween? Can you still zip your jeans? I hope so! We have officially ushered in the holiday season with Halloween. Yes, Halloween is just the beginning, so if you felt weak and stumbled, it’s time to pull yourself up by the belt loops and get it straight! You can successfully lose weight over the holidays if you plan ahead and don’t let small setbacks completely derail you.

Alright, let’s get to the rest of it!

Fitness Challenge

Back by popular demand, you guessed it, MINUTES! Gasp! Run, bike, jump, ski, you name it. Get that body sweating and your heart pumping. Pump, pump, pump it up! Count all of your fitness minutes and report them next week!


How did you do last week with that crazy no-candy eating challenge (Lissa is so mean!)? Should you have been confessing yesterday in our True Confessions? I actually stuck with the plan and had 2 mini-size butterfingers. YAY me!

This week’s challenge is going to help calm you as we rush into the season known to cause so much stress people inadvertently find themselves passing through the DQ drive-thru with a huge x-tra-Butterfinger blizzard in hand. Don’t say it’s never happened to you!

Every.single.morning this week, before you even step a tiny toe out of bed, I want you to lie on your back and take 10 (yes TEN) deep, cleansing breathes. In through your nose, and out through your mouth. As you inhale, count to five, and then hold it for a count before exhaling to the count of five. You might not believe it, but this will get your day off to an amazing start. I know when I stick with this routine everyday, I feel more calm and centered for the rest of the day. Trust me, okay? Thanks!


Now onto some more good stuff — remember that each week, we’ll be giving away an awesome gift pack to one random challenger! BODYGLIDE is providing some great products for our SHRINKVIVORS!
