ADVOCARE 24 day Challenge + Planet Fitness

Finally!... I am ready. I received my box with the 24 day ADVOCARE challenge 2 weeks ago, and was waiting I do not know for what to start, but today I woke up, opened the box, read the booklet and thought, "WHY WAIT?" I gotta do this now and help me bust my weight loss!!! I have already lost 62 lb on my own but need some help with those last pounds I need/want/must get rid off.   So stay tuned to see my progress... YAY!

Day 1:

Weight 155 lb. (Gained 8 lb. while on vacation... UGG!)

Neck: 14".
Bust: 40".
Waist: 34".
Hip: 41".
Thigh R: 24.5".
Thigh L: 24".
Arm R: 12".
Arm L: 12.5"

To this I add a lot of "Muscle & Fitness Hers" and "Fitness" magazine reading, to keep encouraged, and see ahead what I want to look like.  It's a long/hard way, but I know it will pay off...

My goal for this challenge is to loose 10lb. and get some muscle definition.  Thanks Valerie Ward for encouraging me... :)

IN THE DESERT! - Digital Layout

Hi everyone!..., hope you're having a great day so far.  Today I have a layout I made inspired by several challenges.  I loved the sketch from the get go, even though I made some twist to accommodate the photos.  I also made the cactus clipart specially for this layout, and although I still need a lot of practice, I am very happy with the final results... Anyway, here it is, and hope you like it!
