My BLC team wants us to blog about our October plans - pass/fail? and our November plans coming up. So here goes:
October started off really well. I swam twice a week, did all the Weekend Challenges, and the TnTs and the LCWs, with only a little complaining (oh, ok, maybe more complaining than I would like to admit), but I stuck with it and have a weight loss of 7 lbs., which is halfway to my goal of a 14# loss.
