it's offical

I made the cut and get to continue in the contest for the next 3 months. I am looking forward to new work outs at the Y.

big weigh in

We all need to work extra hard this week to make the 5% cut off.  If you haven't already met that goal, YOU CAN DO IT.  I need to try something different in the coming months, I have hit a plateau. I need to change up my exercise and will take advantage of the Y. Maybe a little swimming or water workouts.  Good luck to everyone, see you on Saturday.

I don't like that the next weigh in was only 3 weeks from the last.  I'm just keeping up with what I have been doing. Don't think I will lose much if any at all. I'm Okay with this as long as there is no gaining. I want to continue on this journey even though there have been some rough times and some days where you just don't feel like you can keep it up.

good week

Good start to the week. I feel that I am doing more reps at boot camp than when I first started. Increased my walking to 3 1/2+ miles on days I don't take a class. Tried to take each dog for a walk yesterday. Made if further with one than the other. Can't take them together yet, but maybe one day.

Ups and Downs

I'm glad the weigh in moved to this weekend, I would not have been happy last Saturday. Ups and downs this month. Lose, then to turn around and it's back. Two good days this week, walked over 3 miles each day.  Tried a boot camp style workout at home last night and will do another tonight.  Well off for my walk first. See everyone on Saturday
