my first challenge

Tammy my fellow Atlanta blogger is having a challenge! You can read all about it over at her blog.

I've never done a challenge before but I need a little motivation and some short term goals so I figure it can't hurt.

The only thing that did hurt is posting this today. I broke into the 230's last month and really want to get back on the downward trend. Lets see how low we can go by the end of the month!

I got a good start today. I was up at 5:45am after a restless night due to dogs and storms. I did 45 minutes on the treadmill and was soaked through with sweat. Since getting proper shoes, my hip has been better and I'm going to try running again tomorrow. I also added 20 minutes of stretching along with abs and push-ups on ball.

All healthy meals are planned for the week and the house has been cleared of Oreos.

Here's to a happy, healthy week! Join in the challenge if you can!

  1. I'm in on Tammy's challenge too and wanted to say hi...I, like you, know the pain of losing all that weight and putting it back on, but I know we can lose it for the last time this time! Good luck!!

  2. Glad the shoes are helping. Good luck with the challenge - that was brave of you to post your weight. I didn't - couldn't have - at that size, so kudos, my friend.
