A Little Too Ambitious, I Guess.

Well, it is the second Monday after the start of my Blogger's Health Challenge...the Monday that I am supposed to make a draw from the names of the participants's who posted their progress yesterday, Sunday, for a reward.  The response has been underwhelming, to say the least; there hasn't been any posts from my three fellow participants [insert tear stains here]. So, not being one to ignore the deafening silence, I have decided to put an end to the Challenge and to go it alone. I know, I know, people...but disappointment is a part of life, and I'm sure someday soon you'll forget all about this sad sad day.  (Sarcasm, by the way, is not a highly recommended comedic tool in writing.)

Once in a while I will post my progress with my own goals, but I'm letting you all off the hook. Really, you don't need me to cheer you on...you have the power to succeed without me.  Trust me, you can do it on your own. (Again - use of unnecessary and unappreciated sarcasm here.)

Just a sidenote:  I'm across the country and have been particularily busy arranging my Mother's memorial service in our home province, so my own fitness ambition has been barely registering on the scales.  So, I too am guilty of not really jumping on my own Challenge bandwagon.

I'll talk to you later,
Kelly

Sorry! I didn't forget, I was just away the whole weekend. Yeah last week was a mess, I'm a little disappointed in myself.
