I went at least twice each week in March; at least one week, I made it four times. All in all, not too bad considering I started at zero times a week. The challenge fell apart the last few days, because of some family problems that derailed my otherwise drama-free existence.
Like I said, there was no weight-loss component to the challenge. Having been broken in a freak bathtub-washing "accident" last year, my scale is of no real use, anyway. Plus, like I've said - losing weight is an uphill battle for me. If I make that the goal, I'm easily discouraged by my lack of immediate progress.
I was encouraged by the fact that a pair of jeans that is normally super-tight immediately after a wash was less so by the end of the month. Maybe the trips to the gym are paying off, even if it is ever-so-slightly?
On the off chance that something is actually working, I'll get back on track and keep this up for another month. I may even incorporate some healthier (not healthy - let's not get crazy) eating habits. Maybe some fresh veggies? Substitute rice for pasta now and then?
I'm taking suggestions. Remember - keep 'em easy. This is a real-girl's diet and exercise challenge. Around these parts, we have flaws and set-backs - and life is rarely what we order.
|Yeah, like that....|
