Addicted to Results - 4/13

I am a member of Canton Club gym.  From time to time they do various challenges and competitions. One started April 13 called Addicted to Results.  You get points for various classes, food logs, and weight loss. This lasts for 2 months.  I won the one last year when I wanted to drop the 20 pounds I put on during my asthma resurgence.  I reasoned that if I put it on in 2 months, then I could lose the same amount during the same time.  It worked.  I was also at the gym 3 times a day and in a constant state of fatigue.  My goal this year is.  It seems that the big 'M' has finally hit me.  I am thrilled about that.  I have insanely painful fibroids and a hysterectomy or menopause are the only permanent cures.  I prefer the nonsurgical. The downside is that muscle loss and a decrease in bone density begin to occur.  I want to start a more serious weight routine to counteract nature.  I have done much in the last few years because of tendonitis and stress fractures.  We shall see how this goes.  I am going to use my blog as a workout and food log dairy, so each entry will be for a single day.
