Reader's Fitness Challenge - Join In!

Late last year, I got a new day job, which I love. But in the process, I also stopped walking every day, which had been part of my routine for almost nine months. I was working full time, with a major commute, and I wasn't always around when my husband/walking partner was able to get his walk in.

Then there was the office situation. Until I took this job, I worked from home, so it wasn't quite as hard avoiding unhealthy treats - I just didn't buy them! Unfortunately, my new office mates were quite generous with their candy bowls and homemade snacks.

The combination managed to undo the hard work I'd done last year. Since March, I'd lost almost twenty pounds. As of last week, I've gained almost all of it back.

So I jumped at the chance to become a team leader for Lucy Monroe's Fitness Challenge. There are some great prizes, of course, but more important to me was the opportunity to be more accountable for healthy living. And I just know my team is going to kick butt. :)

So why not join in? Head on over to Lucy's page and sign up, and on April 1 we can start cheering each other on in our weight loss/healthy lifestyle pursuits.
