Crunchin' In Colorado

Hi All,

My name is Amy. I'm a wife of almost 12 years to my soul mate, Beau, and  I'm a mom to three beautiful children ages 11,7 and 3.  At the end of June I embarked on my weight loss journey. I found a great site, SparkPeople ,  that helped me track calories and make friends who constantly motivated me. My goal was to go from 150 lbs. to 125 lbs, Well, by the end of August I had met my goal, all by watching my calories. I'm now 112lbs. My goal is to find time for fitness. I had a great desire to workout because every time I did I found I had tons more energy. But, I found myself being overwhelmed by the thought of taking time to workout. Through one of my favorite blogs, The Shred Sisters , I came across this challenge. I was intrigued! I started reading and found encouragement when Dani Joy said something about starting out at 20 minutes a day. Now 20 minutes a day is completely doable, especially with accountability. I awoke this morning, read my bible and put in my 20 minutes. I get bored easily so I'm sure everyday will be a bit different, but today I kept switching between sets of leg lifts (for abs), push-ups, lunges and jumping rope. I was ecstatic when I had finished because not only had I met my goal for the day ( small as it may be) I also had something I could report to you all. Let's encourage one another as we enter in this 10 week jouney together!
