17 days to go!

I have 17 more days of my challenge issued by Neal. I am a bit doubtful I will be able to reach it, but I don't want to give up. I had a mediocre week. I didn't journal my calories every day, and I gained half a pound.

19.4 lbs. to final goal
6.4 lbs. to Feb. 1 goal

I was feeling a little down this week. Sometimes it's hard for me to know what causes it a problem in my relationship with God? Is it a physical or emotional issue? I never can figure it out exactly, but I do know I was really wishing to get out and get some exercise yesterday. I had been toying with the idea in my mind recently about how it might be nice to re-join the gym I used to go to in town. This morning when I updated Neal on my progress to my goal, he suggested the same idea. I am so excited about it! I am hoping to go tonight and re-join the gym in town, Lord willing. I told Neal that I feel like I can get to my goal, eventually, but I think working out at the gym will definitely help speed up that process.

I'm looking forward to posting back here next week. I am hopeful that with God's help, I can do better this week with my journaling and new exercise plan.


  1. I would be happy to help with the boys for your trips to the gym. They are my exercise!

  2. I get like that too from time to time. Usually it seems o me to be worse when I'm stuck inside all week. Getting out can really make a difference :). Whatever the reason behind it, just don't give up!!!

  3. I love you! I'm sorry you had a rough week physically and emotionally. Being cooped up I'm sure had something to do with your mood, and I'm sure exercising will help those endorphines. :-) I love you! You are doing so great, my amazing sister!
