Can I just tell you I’m SO excited about this challenge. SO excited because the Sisterhood has been around for almost a year and it makes my heart so happy to think of all the wonderful people I’ve met in shrinkdom! I’ve forged strong bonds with people who are so amazing and inspiring and just downright freaking awesome!! Without them, my life would not be as full as it is at this very moment.
So on to the good stuff!
My goal for this challenge is very conservative. The reason is that I’ve continuously set lofty goals for myself, and time after time, I fall short of meeting them. For once, I want to meet my goal and feel that victory!!! So my goal is to lose 5 pounds over the next 7 weeks. I feel good about that goal and I feel like I can achieve it.
As far as my EA Sports Active 5K challenge training goes, it’s been kind of hit and miss. Illness and rainy weather have tried their best to derail my efforts, but I’m staying the course. I might not be running the entire Sisterhood 5K come Sunday, November 8th, but dagnabbit, I’m going to give it my all. I’m going to push myself to make it as far as I can before keeling over on the side of the road and passing out!
Today’s Shrink-a-Versary Extravaganza starting weigh-in: 142 (up .8 from last week, if you’re keeping track!)
Good luck to all of you who’ve joined our fantastic challenge! I hope you find the kind of fulfillment I have here at the Sisterhood!!
