My biggest challenge as of late has been sleep. I started homeschooling one of my children this year, and started sleeping less in order to prepare lessons. My husband also works away a lot, so I would stay up late to get things done, or just get some me, alone, quiet time. It is taking a toll on me, and I have been sick a lot this winter -surprise, surprise. I feel like my energy level is non-existent, and that is bad news when you have 4 children. I have done one of these competitions in the past and I know that I am more competitive than motivated, so I know it will help me change things around and be more healthy and therefore more productive. We sent our homeschooler back to school after Christmas break, so I am hoping the sleep hours will start rolling in, and my house wont look like a natural disaster hit it everyday.
My name is Susan, and I am hoping to maintain my weight throughout this challenge, but build some muscle as well. I have been really bad about letting my workouts fall away the past month because I have been sick or had sick kids, and I am a much better person when I get my workouts in haha (my husband can attest). I feel like working out gives me the strength, energy, and sense of accomplishment I need to be more productive throughout the day. I am thankful Stephanie is willing to head up this challenge, because I know it is a lot of work, but it is much appreciated, because it is just want I need to get back on track, and I love knowing there are others out there doing it with me. Good luck to everyone and thank you Stephanie!
