Third And Final Effing Week Of The Challenge:

7/12/08gym: 30 min elliptical, 20 min lower body weights, 10 min cool down and stretch

7/13/08gym: 30 min elliptical, 2o min upper body weights, 10 min cool down and stretch

7/15/08gym: 30 min elliptical, 10 min cool down and stretch

7/16/08gym: 30 min elliptical, 10 min cool down and stretch ( I know it seems repetitive but that is all I have had time for the past week)

7/17/08gym: 30 min elliptical, 10 min cool down and stretch

7/18/08gym: 30 min elliptical, 10 min cool down and stretch DONE!!!!

I did it! I actually freakin did it! In fact I am a wee bit surprised that I didn't make an excuse to not go. I mean there were times when I desperately wanted to, when I had no time for anything else and all I wanted to do was take a nap I still went. I am really proud of myself. And yes I am actually a little teary eyed typing this.

I foresee my next challenge being a bit more "challenging" because it involves food. I have decided to do the 5 servings of fruits and veggies daily 21 day challenge. It is the perfect time of year to do it since the farmer's market is in full swing. I haven't decided on a day to start the challenge yet but I will definitely let you all know. I will also be doing a weigh in sometime next week on the day I feel the lightest. ;)

Thank you all so much for your incredible support and love. I think I would have given up on myself a few times if it hadn't been for you. I love you all!

Hooray! You totally deserve to be teary-eyed after what you have accomplished. I'm SO proud of you! I can't believe you're doing the five-a-day challenge; that's definitely a hard one, but I wish you all the best!

hey Well Done!!!! The next challenge sounds good.... I am thinking of challenging myself like that. I saw a Dietician this week and really need to follow her advice.

COngratulations. I think you have done one of the hardest things EVER!!!!! Seriously, challenging yourself is a true testiment to what you are made of. Oh, sure people can lie to themselves but for a person to actually DO IT really says something wonderful about themselves and their conviction. I think you can do ANYTHING now :)
