I didn't do well this week AT ALL. I am guilty of partying Saturday night (lots of beer! ) and sleeping a lot this weekend.

I'm going to join the YMCA this coming weekend (5/10) so I will make up for this past weekend.

Haven't done a 'weigh in'...I am waiting until the 7th.

~*MY FITNESS CHALLENGE*~

May 01 - 30 min - Fast walk/Slow jog while my daughter rode her power wheels
May 02 - 0 min - spent QT with the hubby
May 03 - 0 min - had a few too many beers
May 04 - 60 min - cleaned up from party (including lifting heavy stuff, lots of squats while picking up numerous bottles/cans) and also did yard work.
May 05 -
May 06 -
May 07 -

Forgot to add the numbers:
90/1200 Minutes
0/10 Pounds Lost

ok i am going to give this a try.. i am getting married this month so i am going to get in as much as i can and set a realistic goal for me instead of something i know i cant achieve.

I want to walk 90miles this month and lose 7 pounds..

If someone could be so kind as to let me know how i can put the tracker into my profile instead of always having to copy and paste it i would appreciate that.
HERE I GO!!!!!
