So today was the final weigh-in for Specks Challange! I lost a total of 1.8 lbs!! No no no, that is not my accomplishment.
I did a mud/obstacle run a few weeks ago. I was really really scared and intimidated by it! In the end, I had a lot of fun and challenged myself both physically and mentally (fear of heights, tight spaces)! Sure I walked a lot of it, skipped a few of the obstacles (the under ground tunnel you had to crawl through - could not handle the claustrophobia), and it took me an hour and 36 minutes but I FINISHED!!!! The lesson is don't assume you can't do something - It is often easier than you think!
They emailed pics today - here is the link (I couldn't copy the pictures) !!! I look huge and mud soaked clothes are NOT flattering! BUT I finished!!!! Here is the proof :)
PS - do not wear stretchy yoga pants for this type of thing!! They get muddy and HEAVY!!!
