My Own Fitness Challenge

Sorry I haven't been around lately.  Life was so busy during and after the Holidays - as many of you probably know!

Two weeks ago I found out that I was not selected to be a part of a blogging health challenge.  I was actually uber excited about the possibility of getting healthier, receiving some awesome health products and monetary compensation for doing so.  I also thrive on competition.  Needless to say, I wasn't chosen and it put me in a bit of a funk shall we say.

However, I pulled myself out of the pit and got myself in gear - thanks be to God!  I have decided that I need want to get in shape - compensation or not.  I am going to do this for ME!  Many of you guys know that I started running last year.  How much easier would my running be if I was lighter?  Hmmm, how much faster would I run?  These are some of the questions I have been asking myself.

I debated if I was even going to publish a post on this and then decided that it would be good for me.  Maybe someone would be encouraged, maybe someone could hold me accountable - I have a lot of maybes here huh?

So my goal is to lose 46 pounds - yikes that is a lot!  And I am happy to report that after two weeks I am 10.5 pounds lighter.  Yeah for progress.  35.5 pounds doesn't sound as bad.

Not a great photo but I will take it :)

What about you?  Are you getting healthier this year?
