I’m a bit of a green thumb. I have to be with the big yard I have that is full of trees, flowers, grasses, ferns and veggies in the summer.  It’s a great space with rich soil, critters and lots of ever changing greenery. Without tending it the yard would quickly turn into a jungle.

FIT Challenger Tim Rotsinger has been missing from the gym a little bit in the past couple of weeks. 
 
I am sure it is not because he didn’t want to be there.

I had a good past week of workouts.

Trevor Tieche of Bodi N Balance took my measurements on Friday and they revealed a little loss and measurements down in a couple places.

The weight is coming off, grudgingly, but coming off, nonetheless.

This past week Hannah Riley, my FIT trainer from the Norwalk Rec, and I started to talk more about food.

I need to broaden my food choices. I think I've been eating well, but because of my pickiness, I'm very limited in my choices of food.

Here we are at unlucky No. 13 for my blog.

I have been sick with a sinus infection and both ears infected for awhile now and on antibiotics for four days and feel even worse every day.

I woke up Sunday morning with an awful cough now, too.

I’ve been doing the FIT Challenge since Jan. 15 and so far I have lost 45 pounds. 

I didn’t hit my goal I set for myself; I was hoping to lose 5 more pounds by April 10, so I changed it until the end of April to lose that 5 pounds; I am hoping I can do it.
