My Journey With MFP

Remember this site that I shared with you last month...well it's what has been keeping me busy.  I joined in on a challenge for the month of August, called Kickin' The Crap Outta August, and well, that is exactly what I have been doing.  Kickin' some major hiney. My team is called F2F (Flab to Fab) and we are doing great so far.

Every day we have challenge exercises like strength training or cardio bursts the make you stretch your perceived abilities...I have found that I am much stronger than I thought I was...and that I can do so much more that I believe. So far this month I have lost 7lbs as of last Sunday and hopefully when I weigh in on this Sunday I will have more to report...I am building more muscle and regaining strength I lost during my battle with cancer, treatment etc...This challenge has just 6 more days and then I can relax a little, and baby my back a little more.

So I will keep this short and sweet, and will check back in at the end of the month to more fully report on my progress and what I have learned in these last couple of months. 

I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when I feel it not. I believe in God even when He is silent. *Written on a wall in a concentration camp*

Well done, Shannon. Glad you're feeling stronger and healthier.
One of the maddening things about having more muscle; they put weight on you, because they are more dense than fat.
So while you're adding muscle and losing fat, you'll find your weight isn't changing much, even though you're in better shape.
Blessings and Bear hugs in the process.

Great job on the challenge!! I was feeling real good that first week, I wish I could have toughed it out but I got sick & that kicked my butt for the next 2 weeks. I'm not nursing myself back and hopefully I can add back in exercise next week, slowly to see how I do. I'm hoping to shadow the Sept challenge once I get back from vacation, I'll miss the fist week. I hope I do half as well as you've done for Aug!
