Finally, I got it together. This week I actually lost weight! SO I think I am back to where I started *grin* but that is better than posting an overall gain. I feel better this week. I have rearranged my schedule and I think I will be more successful now with the numbers on the scale.
This week I actually got on my treadmill and walked! I also cleaned my house (I worked up a better sweat doing that than I did on the treadmill), and I moved furniture (lots of big stuff) at the office. I am pleased with that. I did play fetch with the dog everyday but until I can get her to throw a tennis ball for me I have decided not to count it as exercise.
One of the mini challenges was to think about why I joined this challenge in the first place. My reasons were two-fold, I wanted to join because I like this type of group challenge where people are working towards the common goal of being healthy. The second reason was that I really like the online community that I have found here and wanted to become more active within it. I know that the holidays are a tough time to try to lose weight but as long as I don’t give up I’ll eventually get there and already the people I have met and the support I have found are just amazing. I am really glad that I joined.
I’m going to post more later-on today. I am off to play with my girlfriends! Have a lovely day my friends.
