There is a lot going on in my life...big decisions being made and just a lot of stress. And I know I'm not the only one! Throughout this challenge members of our group have gotten engaged, had major health crises, have had spouses that have been gone for different reasons for long stretches of time. Everyone is going through something!
It takes a lot of mental focus for me to lose weight. I don't feel like I've been able to give 100% of my focus during this challenge and it shows on the scale. I've lost a little, but not nearly as much as I had hoped at the beginning of this challenge. I'm still really happy I completed these 12 weeks though. I feel like the motivation to workout consistently and make better food decisions has helped keep me sane during this stressful time. If it wasn't for this challenge, I probably would have ended up gaining weight the past 3 months.
I really want to continue with all of these habits, and work a little harder the next 3 months to continue reaching my goals and lose a bit more! If any of you are interested in continuing or participating in some sort of challenge to kick off the summer, please let me know!
Thanks everyone for motivating me to be a little better!
