I'm calling the new challenge I'm doing "Countdown to One Year" because I started it at 12 weeks to my one year anniversary with SparkPeople.
I've completed one week and lost 3 pounds. WooHoo !
In the past week I also started going to a new exercise class and attended both classes (Monday & Friday). It felt really good to get some exercise. I discovered muscles I didn't know I had. But in a good way - I'm not sore, I just feel like I used my body. A great feeling.
I'm on my 6th day alcohol-free which is great for me. I know I'm addicted to alcohol. I don't care for the word "alcoholism". I prefer alcohol abuse or addiction. I don't like the word "sobriety" either. I just say that I'm a Free Spirit. I like the sound of that. It's Positive. It's not a state of "deprivation". It's a "free" decision that I'm not going to put alcohol which is toxic into my body. I'm "free" of the poison.
Anyway, I'm doing really great on this personal challenge. My goal is to lose 15 pounds which would put me in 160ville: a place I haven't been in over 10 years - or is it 20 ? I really don't know. I was around 200 pounds for a very long time. Now I'm 175-180 for a few months. 165 would be awesome.
I can do it with the help of God. I give Him all the credit. I couldn't do anything without my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ who gives me strength.
Praise GOD ! and
