Spring Challenge Starts Tomorrow!

I am looking forward to the Spring Challenge which kicks off tomorrow. I have been going well lately. Still staying off the iced coffee, still exercising, still need to keep up my water. Same old, same old.

Some days I feel the need for a fill, others I get stuck on everything. There's no manual to this band - kind of like having kids really - just take it day by day!

I have been reading that some ladies experience tightness around that time of the month (TOM) I am now tracking my cycle so that I can see how Portia goes during those times. Currently I have no idea about due times etc (joys of having a Mirena as my chosen method of contraception) but I am consiously making the effort to keep up-to-date so I can see when/if it plays a part in how Portia is working.

I will be participating in the local Relay for Life to help raise money for cancer research later this month. It is my first physical challenge that I have set myself. On the plus side - it is a fantastic cause. Here is the info if anyone is interested:

I will be posting my first scale result photo tomorrow (the photo is required as part of the spring challenge) but I am CHOOSING to post it. This is a big step for me. HUGE! I am also choosing to put the weight up in pounds - just cause almost everyone else in the challenge uses that system. I will convert for my own record.

Goodluck to all those in the challenge. I am seeing it as another step in my journey to be accountable. Wish me luck!


  1. I know what you mean about the band feeling different on any given day!

  2. Yay! I am starting the challenge too!

    What are we going to do about water consumption! I am awful!! Yesterday I really tried and I did better but not as good as I should!
