Logged in, recorded everything I ate (I think?... oh, I need to write it all down right at that moment!), didn't get to workout. Grrr. That's the next step. I told my son today (15yo) that I NEED to get to SnapFitness EVERYDAY until the end of the month to get our discount from the health insurance (dh and I each have to go 12 times a month, and then they pay almost ALL of our membership fee). He is my right hand man when DH is working. He said he will help, even if it means watching the younger siblings or even (GASP) taking over bedtime. All I can say is, "HE'd better, if he knows what's good for him!" LOL.
So, here's to hitting the workout center daily through the end of October.

I'm down right mad at myself. For the past two months I have let craziness rule my world--basically being too busy with everything to keep on track with my health. I gained weight back that I had said goodbye to. URGH.
Well, that is old news. I can't go backwards, only forwards. So right now I'm going to move forward. Today was the first day--tracked my food, drank my water. Check. One day down, the rest to go.
Tomorrow I continue to move forward--track food, drink water, exercise.
And then the next day... and the next... and the next.
I also know that logging in DAILY will help me achieve my goals and continue to move forward. So, I may not blog daily, and I usually log my food on my phone, but I am going to log in to SP daily to get those points, build the excitement, and keep me on track.

It is snowing here again today! Can you believe it?! April 19 and we just got another 3 or so inches. Unbelievable. At this rate, the garden will never happen. But now now... have hope. Summer has to come, doesn't it???
Well, I think I might hit my 5% challenge goal... but unfortunately not the way I wanted to. Yesterday I was sick with a stomach bug--quite literally could only handle 1 piece of toast and a handful of Gatorade ice cubes all day. I didn't get to log in at all. Biggest bummer was that I was in a mini challenge where you had to log in each day by midnight with fitness minutes, even if it was 0. Missing once was cause for elimination. Well, 2 days left of the 8 week challenge, and I was eliminated. Such a bummer! Oh well... so it is. I can be thankful that the stomach bug only gave me 1 day of feeling yucky and 1 day of pure misery.
I am SO thankful for all the good I have gotten out of this 8 week challenge. I have met some great new SparkFriends, found my workout groove, and stayed on task. Each day was a new day, with new challenges (like running a 10k in 30 degree weather???), and more to learn about myself. I really enjoyed the camaraderie of the Teddybears.
So, here's to spring actually coming, a happy last day of the challenge, and health! Have a great weekend!
