Game On: MN style Round #1 COMPLETE!

Quick update on Game On! for those of you who may be interested..

So our 4 week competition comes to completion tomorrow-and I can definately say it was a success! I lost 5 lbs. by week two, but thanks to a tasty vacation (which caused me to lose quite a few points! grrr! but the Poutine was WORTH it!) I ended losing just 3 lbs. total.  BUT, outside of losing weight, I haven't bitten my nails since we began! And for someone who used to bite them UNTIL THEY BLED (yes,  I know-YICK) this is HUGE!!! I only wish I had a before shot so you could see how amazing this is!!

Also, thanks to Game ON, I have been doing my "30 day Shred" video almost daily-and I can FEEL my body composition starting to change. I feel inklings of my "pre-baby body" and it gives me hope I might get back there again!

Another highlight is due to my teammate and friend, Miss Stacy Nathan! She encouraged and (well, practically dragged at times) challenged me to run again, and get back to a 10 minute mile!! And we DID it~! We ran 3.4 miles last Wednesday together at 10 min. each mile, and now I'm signing up to run a 7k on St. Patty's with Stace...whew!! So I'd say we have some progress!!

I'm still struggling with eating choices, but Weight Watchers is a great program-when I stick to it!! And all this water intake was good too-I've learned that adding cucumber, lemon and mint leaves can make water taste FABULOUS, and freezing it in ice cubes is a handy trick as well!

I've learned lots of other things, but that's a blog for a different day! Right now, I have to stick with my new habit of getting 7 hours of sleep each night!! After all-if what they say is true "anything can be fixed with a GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP" then tomorrow should be a fantastic day!

Adios Amigos!
