Some time ago I joined the May Challenge at Tales From the Scales. It's the reason I started this blog. It helped keep me on track and then as soon as July got here everything I was doing went out the window. I saw Fit 4 Life Friday on Michelle's blog at Henderson Highlights (I still can't do links) and since the May Day challenge is over I really wanted to do this. I like the idea of weighing in on Friday. So, here it goes. It's cool outside and I'm ready to get back to walking! Especially since I got on the scales yesterday and I had gained 5 pounds-yuck. I worked so hard for those 5 pounds!! I was so excited in July when I was only 1 pound away from losing 10 pounds. Even with all the fun summer stuff going on I was losing weight or, at least, maintaining, What a difference 2 months, no walking, no water, Disney World trip (doesn't all that walking count for something?) can make! So here it goes. Even though I have been sick this week and right now I still feel "crappy" and keep coughing-I'm ready to go! Here are my goals: 1. Start with 32 oz. of water a day. 2. Write down what I eat. 3. Walk 3 - 4 days a week for 45 minutes. Start weight on March 9th: 149 Lowest weight since March 9th: 140 Current weight: 145 Goal weight: 135 One thing I have learned is that consistency is the key. Going off for a weekend is Ok but not for months! Ha. Hopefully, by next Friday I will have lost 1 pound!
