Shrinkvivor Weigh In #4

Wednesday once again brings weigh in at the Sisterhood. This is weigh in #4 for the Shrinkvivor Challenge and I was almost afraid to hop on the scales this morning. After all the (not so good for me)food I have eaten the past week, traveling, and not being able to really "exercise" a whole lot I really didn't know what the scales would indicate. But since weighing in is the major part of this challenge it is what I had to do. I was slightly excited! Not overly excited, but happy that the number was less than last week!

Beginning weigh in for this challenge: 206.6

Last week: 198.6
This week: 198.2

YES!! That is a loss! Not big, but the number is indeed smaller! and that is the key here, right? I've lost over 8 pounds since September 15 and I'm happy about that loss!

Today starts a new day/week...with lots of fruits/veggies, NO fast food, and LOTS of water! Not to mention whatever Christy and Melissa come up with for this week!

I'm excited to see the physical challenge, too. So far they have really pushed me beyond what I thought I could do. I just finished my first 5K, I logged a run of 14:11 this week. I have logged some serious minutes of exercise, not to mention MILES during this challenge!! I have exercised consistently over the past 21 days only taking rest days that were necessary for healing from this weekend.
I participated in my first Tworkout last night with April, too! That was fun/challenging and really good for me!

Tribe Green (the best tribe out there, ijs) has won immunity 2 weeks in a row! We have developed a great bond and we are pulling for one another daily! Can we win 3 weeks in a row? Only time will tell!!
