We had our final challenge this past week at the YMCA. I worried all week about swimming. I tried to swim the first length on my back kicking like crazy.
That got me pretty far behind FIT Challengers Meg and Leah. Tried a different stroke on the next length and that didn't work much better. When I looked over at Leah, she was running. She had the right idea, which is why she won. I started to run and made it close. The best part was that I did not drown.
I'm going to continue with this new lifestyle. I never want to weigh as much as I did six months ago. I planning to enter some 5ks and maybe a bike race to keep me motivated. I really enjoy the competition.
It was great meeting all the contestants. I think we all had a pretty good time. All of us should be proud of what we accomplished. It was not easy.
Take care and have a happy holiday.
