A Springy (Wintry) Hello from Russia
Hello! I'm Tami Jackson, wife to Steve, and mom to 3 precious kids. We are missionaries in Irkutsk, Russia, and might even start to experience spring by the end of this fitness challenge. I homeschool our children, and also stay busy with various ministry activities.
I have been participating in Dani Joy's fitness challenges since her first one. I did the best on my first challenge where I lost 9 lb. and 20 inches. I'm 5'3", and am 37 years old. I am now currently at 115 lb, and maybe would like to lose 3 more. I'm not sure how that will go, as I will also be doing more strength training, which may actually cause me to gain some. I'm hoping to tone more, especially in my hips and thighs. I still need to make progress in that area.
I've enjoyed getting to know many of you through the blog in the past, and hope to meet some more of you soon through your posts.
Here are my current measurements:
weight 52.5 kg
bust 34.5 in.
R thigh 21.5
L thigh 22
R arm 10.5
L arm 11
My daughter, Ashley, 13, will be joining me for this challenge. My other little girl, Melissa, 7, says that she is going to exercise with me too.
