Week 17 Challenge Springing into Action

Saturday, June 15, 2013

Well, we made it through this challenge!!!!

Our main challenge this last week was to try something we wouldn't have tried before the challenge. Mine was running. I never, ever thought I would be a runner. People would say something to me about running and I would say "this body wasn't made for running"! Well, I walk every day and I have been incorporating some running into it...and you know what....I love it!!! I plan to keep adding more running to my daily cardio!!!

The bonus part was to figure our BMI. I thought I would just compare my results from the beginning of the challenge until now.... here goes:

Weight beginning 183, now 176 -7# total!!!!
BMI beginning 35.7%, now 34.4% -1.3% total!!!!!
Total inches beginning 185.5, now 176.5 -9# total!!!!!

All in all I think I did pretty good for my first big challenge with Spark. I know I could have done better but I did the best I could and that's all I can ask for.

I'm so looking forward to the next challenge, Season of the Beast!!! Now to select my beast to slay!!!!


Congrats to all participants in the challenge!!! You are all amazing!!!! Let's keep Sparking!!!

    Now that's real girl power! Slay the beast! We really can do it -- it is one of those doable things in life! Do we have the will to do it and to stay consistent? That's the issue. Maintain your will and determination -- it is contagious! I am so proud of you and you have been an encouragement to me for my day!

Thank you!
