Christmas Dress count down…Week 1…

CHRISTMAS DRESS COUNTDOWN CHALLENGE 2011The Dress...
Week one is under my belt and though I wasn’t perfect I’d have to say the week was a success. My weight is down 1.2 lbs (makes me at 184.0). Not quite the 2 full pounds I was looking for but also the ending of my TOM so next week I should be able to have the full 2 lbs. My eating has been great minus one bit size 3 Musketeer bar and a handful of wheat thins. Water is excellent at a gallon plus a day. Exercise was 5 times this week and all of them I gave my all. I’ve been working on the running with Pam's daughters help. Pam’s daughter is an athletic trainer and has been giving me tips this week. I am also still working on Brad’s 5K in 100 days. I do every other day with these two things plus the elliptical and weights and last night for the first time, free weights. Oh and my planks I’ve changed from just doing one or two for a minute I’m doing 5 for 30 seconds with just a few second break. So all in all a good week. A new week will begin with all new challenges. I’m up for them, how about you? How’d you do this week? I bet you were a rock star. I bet you blew this challenge right out of the water and am rocking on. I sure do hope so but you know, if you didn’t, if you screwed up, fell off the horse, missed a day here and there, well week two is coming and you can just climb back on and rock on. You can do this, we all can do this. I know it, I have faith in every single one of you and myself to boot.
Take care now and have a blessed and awesome weekend.

Do you mean Pam from Empty Nest´s daughter? If so, how cool, that she is giving you tips. I love her mom´s blog and she is a great inspiration to me.
Glad you could lose some weight. Let´s keep it going strong!
