Two weeks ago a Spark Girlfriend asked me to join a challenge with her.
I work 12 hours a day and have So much on my PLATE....but "She" is an important person in my life and I've been in on 2 other challenges and she was nervous never being on one.
I didn't want to let her down so I agree'd.
In the week it took for the team to start. I lost 1 lb. Today was weight in day/one week later and I lost another 2 lbs. It's an 8 week challenge.
Now I am super pumped although still super busy with all that is going on in my life.
Moral of the story you ask???
When you think you have too much on your plate....toss that luncheon plate out for a Dinner platter and reorganize your life.
Quick update on my 5K
This morning at 3:20 a.m. I got up before work and walked 2 minutes jogged 4 walked 2 jogged 3..repeat until the 3.1 miles was over with.
I'm looking forward to my phone arm band to show up so I can use my new app. on my phone to keep track of this without me holding my phone.
As soon as I have a day off I will jog on the road instead of the treadmill.
Today I have no thigh cramping or shortness of breathe to report....woohoo
have a great week
I just couldn't resist putting up this picture of the tail end of my garden produce from last year. I'm down to 8lbs of potatoes and SUPER happy I was able to go this long not buying from the Grocery store...
I entered the 5% Challenge and was put on the Firecracker team.
I'm super excited and hope I learn the ropes quickly.
Is to keep up with Food logging. I like to think of myself as a Flexitarian.
75% plant based and 25% lean meat.
I don't eat anything processed and enjoy learning the Traditional way of cooking and fermenting.
My exercise plan is to continue on the 5K training program and water aerobics. I'm looking forward to our snow melting and I can get my bike out for a more well rounded cross training day.
I've updated my sparkpage to reflect spring and joining this challenge.
I'll be changing my Weigh In day from Sunday to Saturday also.
