Well, I am doing something completely outside of my comfort zone! I am doing a weightloss challenge!! AHHH!!! Along with diet changes, I am doing the Biggest Loser Challenge at a local exercise studio.
We had our first meeting, weigh-in, measurements, exercise time... It was really hard to see the numbers for my measurements and weight. (Though I had a fair idea where I would be for my weight)
I need to do this though. For me, for my family! I want to be around for my children and grand-children and hopefully great grand-children. (I have some relatives who have made it to 104yrs) I can't do that though unless I am healthy! So this is for them too.
It's for me because I haven't taken care of myself and I can't keep up with my children. I can't even do the 3 minute step test without taking a break. :( I have a LOT of work to do.
This challenge started March 3rd and ends the Sunday before Mothers Day (May 5th I think). I will be posting my before and after picture then as well as numbers. My weight & measurements will all be out there.
This week started slow, had a good middle, but then my kids decided to share their colds with me. :-/ What's a mom to do?!? Oiy. I didn't exercise yesterday due to feeling really crappy and a baby that needed her mama. Every kid has a cough and congestion. Hopefully we can all kick this bug soon!
On a side note, Spring is JUST around the corner! I for one can't wait! I don't mind winter as it kills all the pests but it needs to be over...NOW!!! So on that note, I will end this update.
