I'm not nearly as excited for the final post of this challenge as I was for the final post of the last challenge. I was vying for the win in the last challenge. No chance of that in this one. Funny thing is, I'm okay with that. Here are the stats.
I lost 1.2 pounds this week. I think that is pretty good being I had a gain last week. I'm happy with a loss.
I tried Billy Blanks Tao Bo (sp?) this week. It was kind of a retry, but I hadn't tried it in many years. I'm not a go to the gym girl. I refuse to pay anyone money for me to lose weight. I joined Weight Watchers this summer and that was a huge stretch for me. I found out that Tao Bo is really hard. It takes a lot of stamina. But, I also learned that it could be a really good workout, if you let it.
I was really good with my water. I kept up with my fruits and vegetables. I kept reading labels. I kind of journaled my eating. I can't remember all the other things we've done.
I started this challenge at 198.8 pounds. I finish at 195 pounds. That is a loss of 3.8 pounds. A loss is good, but I'm still .2 pounds off what I finished the last challenge at.
I am very excited to have started the C25K program. I really want to be able to run an entire 5k with no injury. I think this would be a real kick in the pants for me. My daughter has even agreed to do it with me. We are doing a 5k on Saturday and using my new Gymboss to run part of it in intervals.
Here is my plan for the next challenge. Whatever the challenge is, I am going to kick it's ass. I want to be my friend Mary for it. She is in the Final 7 for this challenge and she is a rock star. I want her to win so badly. She has worked so hard and deserves it so much. If you haven't voted today, please go and vote for her. I will track my Weight Watcher points every day no matter what. I have to get beyond this working and not having time thing. I will do some form of exercise every day. I will continue to do the C25K program. I will keep drinking my water and taking my vitamins.
I want to be the best me I can be. I think my girls on Twitter are a huge help. Last night they made me think that I can do anything I put my mind to. Guess what? I really can if I just want to enough and I do want to. I want to ring in my 56th year with a healthy attitude and smaller body. I have a little more than one month to do it and I promise you I will.
Lastly, why can't Fitbloggin be in June? I want to go and meet my fellow sisters so badly, but there is no way in hell that I can go in May. I would miss preschool olympics and my firstborn grandchild's birthday. I could lose my job and grandma status over missing those. One of these days I am going to meet some of these girls who have come to mean so much to me. I think you know who you are. I love you all so much!!
