HealthyWage Challenge Day 4

Weight: 162.2

Well, the easy weight has already fallen off I guess. Today, I just maintained at 162.2 lbs for a total weight loss of 3.2 lbs to date.  I ran my 4 mile route today, and I did the Anderson ab work again. That ab workout was prescribed every day for me when I was first introduced to it. In fact, I think it was prescribed twice a day; however, I am going to ease into that.
