Today I finished SparkPeople's Official January Jumpstart Workout Challenge!
Finishing any challenge always feels great, but for some reason this one feels especially gratifying. Maybe it's because I got one of those shiny trophy icons as a reward. Or, maybe it's because I know I stuck with it even while out of town on a combination business trip and mini-vacation in Las Vegas. Or, it could also be that this challenge took me quite a bit out of my comfort zone as far as exercises go. None of them were really difficult, although the very first one was quite a beast the first time I did it!!! But, a lot of them were new exercises to me and stuff like that always takes me a little time to get used to. I definitely learned that I'm not as coordinated as I thought I was, although I improved over the course of the 4 week challenge.

Unfortunately, this month has also been very hectic and a lot of my forum and team participation waned. Between fitting in a lot of new exercise and a crazy amount of work stuff, something had to get cut. TV time and the more social aspects of SparkPeople both went on the chopping block. And, I definitely missed my SparkPeeps more than the TV!

Anyhow, my big challenge is over and work should be getting more manageable in the next week, so things will be back to normal for me soon.

p.s. I'm getting SUPER close to reaching my 80 lbs lost milestone! I suspect this Monday or the following Monday I'll be celebrating!!!
