Although this particular challenge has only 30 days…I threw in a “last chance workout” for January 31 to finish out the month strong.

I’ll post the results of my month’s totals once I add them up.

I’m a fan of keeping track of my fitness stats because I like concrete evidence of progress or lack thereof. (I was recently looking back over a workout journal from 1998!) I have some phone apps that I use as well as online that a very impressive, at least for me.

As a somewhat early adopter of the technology, I’ve seen a lot of updates and have come in contact with a lot of different features which I’ll get into reviewing at some point. I’ll be using that data to measure my effectiveness and make modifications to my workouts.

So far, so good…

Lose it, won't use it....

Lose it, won’t use it….

I broke the plateau I was on & stabilized to lose another 5 lbs. in August with the help of varied workouts, more rest and diet tweaking. More challenges ahead for September as I meet my goal & make my triumphant return to a weight not seen in nearly 8 yrs. And having gotten this close….the next goal is at least an additional 10 lbs. before the holidays.

Life change is amazing!!!
