30 day Challenge and Setback!

I had started a 30 day Challenge this month, but life threw me a curve ball. I got sick. I don't get sick very often, but this time around it really kicked my booty. I am not back to 100%, but I am starting to feel better. So, we are re-starting the challenge. I'm not sure that I'll be able to workout yet, but I'm well enough to commit to everyone else in the challenge.


Workout at least 5 days per week and log workouts in WOWY
Eat Clean and keep a food journal
Take Before Pictures, measurements and weight
Be accountable, supportive to others and help motivate others

That's all there is to it.
