the next 8 week health & fitness challenge . . . and I've made up my mind to begin this Monday, December 31!! This will get me off to a fresh start right at the beginning of the new year, which sounds like a good time to jump in. I know of at least one friend joining in this time, and anyone else who would like to . . . please feel free!! The official first weigh-in will be tomorrow, Dec. 30, and the food journal tracking, etc. begins on Monday. If you participate, you do not need to share your weight with anyone, or what you eat . . . just keep track of your own points and pounds lost, and then we share those results with each other once a week.
I'm not expecting super results for my first week since we have New Year's Eve in there, plus I haven't gotten our Christmas tree down yet, so my living room set-up isn't conducive to exercising at the moment. Hopefully we'll get it put back to normal over the weekend, or early next week. But I definitely need to cut back on the sugar and start food journaling again. These are two things that help me a LOT and the sooner I get started, the better. :)
I weighed in once this week and I had gained back about a pound over the holidays . . . we'll see how tomorrow's weigh-in goes. The damage wasn't as bad as I expected it could be. :) I would like to get back in better shape over the next couple months, since I've really let exercise go lately, and I know I need to ditch the sugar to help get my energy levels up. For anyone who wants to jump into the challenge with me, here is the info I posted last time. You can read that post and it'll save me re-posting the same info all over again. :) I'll be using the same printables from Six Sisters' Stuff, but we are not making it a monetary challenge--although I'd love to do little prizes if I can think of something fun to do for that.
So, here we go! If you want to join in, get your running shoes on and get ready to challenge yourself! :)
