The Viva Las Vegas Fitness Challenge is officially over and I am so sad! I really enjoyed this jorney with you all. I may have to make it an annual challenge.
I wanted to give you my final results and thoughts about the VLV Fitness Challenge. I am really proud about what I accomplished in these 12 weeks. I tried new things like hot yoga and making pad tai. I can now lift 6.5 times more in my weight lifting class then when I started. All in all, I lost 12.7 lbs and two inches off my waist! I again exceeded my goal, which was 5-10 lbs.
I am also really proud of how up my arms and shoulders.
I am not the only one that really got a lot out of the VLV Fitness Challenge. My Fitness Challenge VIP, Angel Jervis writes:
The Viva Fitness challenge has been a great way for me to start a weight loss program in a healthy way. I tend to crash diet right before Viva, which is just not healthy. I decided to participate in weight watchers and incorporated Bikram Yoga into my fitness routine. Weight loss was slow and steady. Before I knew it I started to feel stronger and healthier. I found myself not fixating on the numbers on the scale because I felt so good that I knew even if I had a week where I didn't lose anything, I still felt like I was accomplishing something. After the 12 weeks of the challenge I lost 16 lbs. I had hoped for more, but, it turns out I lost 4 inches in my bust, 4 inches, in my waist, and 4 1/2 inches in my hips. Wow! There really is some thing to that muscle weighing more than fat saying. The best part about it is that I have no intention of stopping what I'm doing now that the challenge is over. I'm so thankful I decided to do this participate.

We both know that this was just a kick start to bigger and better things. Remember- Fitness, like Viva Las Vegas, is a marathon not a sprint! I am so looking forward to enjoying my time in Vegas. I will eat, drink and be merry. Although, I am already looking forward to getting back home and getting back to my normal routine.
