This morning I took my measurements, weighed in, and took a couple of "before" photos for my own reference. I'll be interested to see if I look any different after 5 weeks of regular exercise. :)
I am also working on applying the eating principles from the book Trim Healthy Mama, which I had referred to last week. Over the past week I've lost about 1.5 lbs. just by eating a little differently, and I am finally back in the 125's after holding steady between 127-130 for the whole summer. My goal is to get down around 120 (if that's even possible ;)), but I realize that starting up regular exercise again might make me gain muscle weight. But I'm OK with that if my inches start going down . . . :)
Anyway, I will be checking in here every Monday to let you know how the challenge is going, as well as sharing anything I learned spiritually from the past week, the memory verse, etc. If anyone wants to join in, you should check out this post at Peak 313!! (You don't have to be a blogger to participate.) Everyone who completes all the challenge requirements for the full 5 weeks will be entered in a giveaway for a great prize package! That's some good motivation, right there. :)
