April No Excuses challenge: Day 7
Tuesday, April 09, 2013      1 comments

I didn't do the challenges yesterday, and I'm OK with that. I got some stuff done around the house, redid our budget to reflect my unemployment checks, then met hubby for a movie and a nice dinner out. Hubby and I are both doing Weight Watc... Read more

Weighed in this morning and am up 0.2 pounds. I was a tiny bit disappointed, but I have to remember that when I first start working out, I tend to retain water. Plus, I had 3 beers late last night, so that probably didn't help! No worries; if I ... Read more

This is an easy post to write. I was supposed to do day 3 of the challenges; I didn't. OK, yes, there's more to it, and no, there are NO excuses. I woke up with a couple of hours to spare before I had to be at my folks' house for the rest o... Read more

Got out of bed this morning and felt the results of yesterday's workouts EVERYWHERE. Arms, chest, shoulders, butt...ooh, my ears don't hurt. It's such a good hurt, though. I love feeling muscles ache that never ache, because I know I did somethi... Read more

One of my From Fat to Finish Line team mates completed a daily "Look Hot in your Tank Top" challenge last month. Newly laid off, bored, frustrated with my current weight stagnancy, and looking for motivation and accountability, I decided to join... Read more
