Only one more week of the challenge! Ah! I can’t believe it! It has truly flown! For me personally, it has definitely been my most successful challenge as I actually reached my goal! With a little help from Celiac of course. As much as I really wish I reached my goal because of my steadfast adherence to a healthy diet and daily exercise, I can’t. The side effects of Celiac were definitely in my favor for this challenge. But I’ve still gotten my butt in gear and have completed 3 weeks of C25K already and am determined to see it through and begin running some 5ks this fall!
I wish I could say that I was super excited about the results of today’s weigh-in but I’m not. Its my first gain of the challenge. I am up 0.6 for the week which puts my weight at 138.8. I was actually down when I hopped on the scale this weekend but my love of ice cream got the better of me the past two days. So I’m just going to pick myself up, dust off, and get back at it.
In work out style news, I picked up some new work out clothes at no place other than wal-mart! As much as I would love to go crazy at Nike getting gear (I PPH their tempo running shorts), its just not feasible at this moment so I browsed the Danskin area at Walmart and came across some cute shorts and tanks! And I was so amazed my how much I like them once I got home! The tanks (at an amazing steal of $4) were so flattering! I felt so skinny! And the shorts were comfy too! So just in case you are looking for some budget-friendly work out apparel, you may want to check it out! Back to the business at hand . . .

If you haven’t noticed, I have created some pages that you can check out at the top of the far right column! Once the new design is complete, I’ll have a menu bar but for the time being it will have to do! Please check them out as I even have a page dedicated to my weight loss and 5k training!
