Total weight loss: 7 lbs for this challenge*

* I started my journey to get fit and healthy on October 1st and was active for 6 weeks before taking a hiatus over the holidays.  I lost 11 pounds during that six weeks and maintained that loss until we started this challenge on 01/06/2013. so for anyone on My Fitness Pal it shows my weight loss at 18 lbs so far.  If you are on MFP and want to follow me my username is smithja2003.  I'll gladly help encourage anyone.

I knew with my weeks 3 and 4 slump that I need something to help me get re-motivated and decided it was time to make use of the gym membership that we have.  After checking the class schedule, the only class that was available after work on the days I was interested in going to the gym was Body Pump.  I started class Monday and LOVED it.  I went Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  I'm looking forward to continuing this week. 

I'm still struggling to drink the water that I know I need.  It's not like I'm drinking tons of other drinks, I'm just not getting the fluid that I should be.  I am going to try to make a more conscious effort this week.

I hope that everyone had a positive week.
