Today my challenge has took off !! To the Moscow.

Saturday, February 23, 2013

Today was my emoticon of 5 % Winter to Spring challenge. As I work up, I was so excited and got on my scale for recording of my starts weight and took some measurements of my body. When I joined the challenge on 1/31 my weight was 140 lb. and today the official kick off day of challenge is 135 lbs. Since then I've lost 5 lbs. for some people, this number may not be a big number, but for me it is !! and I am so happy for this lost. I really appreciate to joined this challenge. I feel like I've raked benefit even before the official starts.

So far, grand total of my weight loss since I started streaking last year is 40 pounds. Yes, I've lost a equivalent of 5-gallon bottle of water or an average human leg or 2 twenty lbs. extra large rice bags. Woo Hoo !!

I've had a great starts today.
This morning I starts with 1 hour and 30 min. Cardio with my treadmill. I walked more them 5 mile. And went to gym and did some good strength training, little bit of swimming too. For the breakfast, I had a veggie fruits smoothie with Greek yogurt. This is my usual for the breakfast. I normally only eats solid breakfast foods in weekends. (*^^*) Basically, I am just lazy to cook from the morning. And I know its a better choice then bagel or donuts. Also I can get some of my veggies and fruits intake of the day for just in a glass. (*^^*) I love it. So simple yet has a good benefits.

I am hoping to stay this way all the way to the end of challenge. If I can keep up like today, I'll have great chance of archiving the 5 % which is for me is 6.75 lbs. will be at 128.75 lbs. and enter into normal range of my BMI. Can't wait to that to happen. When I do, I will celebrate Big time !!

Last but not least, I want to thank you for my Spark Friends (Includes, a friend who invited me to joined this challenge.) for all your supports and encouragements. And thanks to my team mate with "Awesome A team".I am so looking forwards to getting know you and get the great job done as a team. Here I came for this challenge to better myself. I am ready, so let's get busy and kick it up a notch !!
