Shrinkvivor Final Weigh in

Shrinkvivor Challenge at the Sisterhood!

Let me tell you I am sad to see this challenge come to an end! This is the challenge that got me moving again, that got the scale moving again - SOUTH, that got me COMPLETELY understanding about how the whole blogging/accountability/building community thing REALLY are helpful tools in this journey of mine.

I have had the privilege and honor to be on a tribe of incredible women who motivated me to no end. I will always be grateful to them for that. We really built each other up day after day and got 'er done! THREE out of the final 7 were from my tribe (Go Green!). I am so proud of them and of the entire tribe.

This morning I got up at 4:45 a.m. to meet a friend for our regularly scheduled 5 a.m. walk. It's 3 miles.We do this on Wed. mornings because this is the only time that fits into her schedule. I felt great even though I tell myself I am not a morning person. Guess what? During those Shrinkvivor challenges I got moving in the morning AND lunchtime AND evening to get in those miles or minutes. In other words, it showed me I am not going to turn into the world's crankiest grouch by exercising in the morning.

Anyway... normally I would have said to myself "I walked this morning. That's it for me for the day." But wait! I am doing the Sisterhood Virtual 5K and am committed to sticking with it, and with the training, so tonight when I got home from work I hit the treadmill and did my W1D2 workout and felt great. Mr. Fiddler saw me going downstairs to the treadmill and he said "Getting more miles for your team?" lol I told him no, these don't count for that any more, but I was going to do it anyway.

Soooooo on to the numbers, yes? I am proud of the progress I made. Slow and steady, it's coming off. People are noticing. I am smiling more. I am noticing.
