First October Motivational Monday!

Well, I stepped it up this week just like I promised in my new goals for the month of October. I didn't let my allergies stop me, like I would have in the past. On Wednesday when I had a crazy busy day I missed my workout...but on Thursday I made up for it by doing both my dance workout and the treadmill. I don't want to lose my momentum!
I got on the scale this morning to find that I lost 1.4 pounds. You would think I'd be a little disappointed with that after all of the extra effort this week, but I'm not. It is also that famous "time of the month"...during which I usually do not lose weight and sometimes gain. It is a great victory to get past that monthly hurdle and lose almost a pound and a half! I now weigh 200 on the next week I will definitely be seeing the 100's!!!
This week I am again picking several motivational people for the week. The current cast of The Biggest Loser has so many hurdles to overcome...physically, mentally, and emotionally. I identify with all of them for different reasons, and I bet you will too. It's only become more intense since the season premiere. Check them out at to be inspired...I dare you to sit on the couch eating cookies after this!
Here's to a great week ahead for all of us: filled with healthy eating, calorie burning, fat blasting, and strength from God!

That's something I still have to "learn": that when I miss a workout, I catch up the next day. Don't do that up till now.

But you did: great job!
