I need a new ticker I guess...and not my heart lol. I've surpassed my goal on the ticker on the right side of my blog.  Time for a new goal! :)

Spring Into Action check in

Figured I better check in, even if briefly.  Life has been very busy, and when I'm not working I've been glued to the whole Japan tragedy.  Today's check in logged me a weight of 154.8.  I was happy with that, mostly because last night the family went out for chinese buffet and I figured I'd have more of a sodium/water weight gain than just .4 (was 154.4 for the last couple days).  The challenge? I just finished week 2 with a total of 60 pushups, 15 in the last set.  Next up is an exhaustion test that I'll do on Friday or Saturday.  I can already tell a difference in my strength and my spouse noticed my arms being more toned just in 2 weeks. :)

So close I won't taste it

I was going to write something earlier but then the whole Japan earthquake & tsunami thing captured attention.  By noon we had bad weather moving in and work got busier.  By the time I left work at 3:30 it was blizzarding something awful and the drive home was not fun. With all that I forgot my little morning woohoo, it was insignificant in light.  Anyway, now that I'm home safe and hunkered down, here's my woohoo...

Looky over there to the right at my weight loss ticker.  Yep, it says 154.8.  I am SO close to this goal.  In all truth I was extremely surprised. But it gives me resolve to be good over the weekend, to not give in to eating some kind of high sodium-laden junk food.  The goal is so close, I won't taste it -- the unhealthy food that is lol.

Spring into Action beginning

A new challenge with the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans :) I'm excited to be starting this challenge at my lowest weight since, well, about the time I got married (and that's a long time ago).  I will admit my goal for this challenge is very low - only 3 pounds.  If I can lose just three more stubborn pounds, I will officially be in the HEALTHY BMI range and out of the overweight range.  By no means is that my final destination though, but I thought it realistic for a 6 week challenge. If I lose more that's great, but I'm not going to disappoint myself with a goal I know I won't reach right now.  My weight loss has been slow and steady, and I know as the scale goes down it's harder to lose. 

My starting weight for this challenge: 

I'll also be participating in the 100 Pushups Challenge.  My initial test tonight was a huge number of 8, I have far to go.  

Oh for petes sake... my partner in crime is my bff Jenn (aka DarkDevotion), we're the "Gut Bustin Bishes" LOL
