Hard work FTW!

So yesterday after I went and weighed in I saw that very luckily I was only up 2 lbs which put me back at 192.4 I believe. I decided I wanted to restart the 30 day shred so I did that and then I got in 4.2 miles of walking just before sunset. I ate roughly 1200 calories for the day and this morning I was very happy to see this number...

Hooray for the 180s!!!!! Finally. haha. I'm sooo excited. I'm going to kick this week's ass. Oh and speaking of the shred, I saw myself improve soooo much from the last time I did it a couple months ago. This time I was able to follow Natalie instead of Anita the entire time! I even rocked those damn bicycle crunches at the end. Also during the last part of the cooldown when you grab your legs behind you, I used to never be able to do that without holding onto some furniture for balance first. But I totally did it yesterday with no problems!! I'm so excited for day 2 now! :D

In other news I joined a challenge on facebook with my friend Sara where everyone sets their own goals of how far they want to walk or run for 7 days. It started yesterday. Some people are using treadmills or ellipticals but I'm just walking my neighborhood. I set my goal at 21 miles for the week since I think on average I do 3 miles a day. But I'm going to try and push myself to blow that number out of the water. Last night I did 4.2 miles so I'm off to great start! It's not too late to join us if anyone's interested!! This is the challenge event link. :)
