  • Notes: 
    • And on day 2 of this week, I’m at 142.4 pounds.  Why couldn’t that have happened when I weighed in yesterday?  GAH!
    • Nutrition is pretty on point this week in regards to calories.  I need to get more fruits and veggies in though
    • Prepped 4 salads for my husband and me on Thursday night for Friday and weekend lunches – it felt good to make those mid-week instead of just on Sunday!
    • My right shoulder is in serious pain – took Friday off unexpectedly
    • Planning out into spring, I’m thinking of starting a 4-week Chisel program followed by a 4-week Hammer program after this one wraps up and it would run from Mar 2 – April 30
    • I’ve lightened my running due to my shoulder and new plans to run a half marathon in July, with training starting 5/1.  I will still run with this challenge, but the mileage goals will kick in in March when I change programs
  • Picture of the Week:
    • I’ve been pretty down lately with a sad shoulder that has stopped weight lifting and most intense workouts for a few days, but as I walked by the mirror two days into taking it easier, I caught a glimpse of this, and remembered that I didn’t build this body in 2 days, and I won’t lose it in two days.  Perspective (and awesome lighting, for the win!)!

  1. Wow! You are so toned!
    Sorry about your shoulder. Thar stinks. I hope you can find ways around it. Congrats on your progress!

    My tendonitis kicked in on Monday in my knee and i haven’t run since Sunday. Sooooo sad.


    1. Thank you. It’s such a tender issue, my shoulder. It seems better but we all know that that’s when you hurt it again!

      I saw you’re running a half soon. Yay for you!!!!!

    1. Thanks! It’s been a lot of fun seeing what all I can do. I have never looked like this before, and never thought I could. It takes work, but it’s worth it and its a fun hobby!
