*In my best Robin Williams* Goooood morninggggg, Shrinkers! Do you know what day it is? It’s hump daaaay! Oh wait – that’s if you’re a camel. Silly me. Today is Wednesday check in day here at the Sisterhood. So, before you get all crazy with breakfast and kids and work and whatnot, get thee to your scale. Hop on and take a peek. Is your hard work paying off in this way? Don’t forget, the number on the scale is only one way to measure progress. How are your clothes fitting? Are you lifting more weight at the gym? Getting faster on your runs? I’ve been working on a 30 push-up challenge this month and I’m up to just over 20 (it varies day to day) macho ones before I need to take a break before I finish the 30. While I haven’t hit 30 in a row yet, I’m still working on it! When I started about 3 weeks ago, I could only do 10 real ones before dropping to my knees and now I’m up on my toes for all of them and finishing in 2 sets instead of 5, so we’ll call that progress. You know, even though it’s 80 bazillionty degrees below zero where I live, tank top season isn’t too far off
one can hope!
