Holy Cats! How did 7 weeks go by so quickly? I can't believe we are at the end of this challenge already. Have I "Re-Thought My Shrink"? Let's see.
I started this challenge at 161.2 pounds. Today's weight: 154.0! That's 7.2 pounds down for this challenge (and 11.8 since I joined the sisterhood last summer at 165.8#). The 160's have left the building and I am on my way OUT of the 150's! Obviously, I must be doing something right. I really think I have "re-thought my shrink." I have decided to embrace technology and let it help me this time around. I love my online tracking tool Daily Plate (you can find it at www.livestrong.com or as an app through i-tunes). I've started using a Nike+ chip to track my runs and have started training for a 10K. (Now if I can only dig-out today to find a treadmill for today's run, I'll be a happy camper.) I've been working through the 6-week challenge on Wii EA Sports Active More Workouts on non-run days.
I haven't changed my eating habits that much, other than the tracking. I think the exercise and just making myself accountable have been the biggest changes during this challenge. I even managed to step outside my comfort zone and vlog for the first time when I reached the 10 pound mark. (Maybe there will even be a vlog 2.0 when I earn my 20 pound button.)
Thank you to all of the wonderful, beautiful, ladies I have "met" through this journey. From the bottom of my heart, I couldn't have accomplished this much without your love, humor, and rockin' support!
See you all in the Shrinking Jeans Olympics! Don't worry, Christie O, I'm not going anywhere!
