Fitness Adventures: Battle Log - Week 3

MY MAIN QUEST:  Over the next 6 weeks, I would like to healthly drop one size which is roughly about 10-15 pounds for me. In order to accomplish this, I plan to:
  • Stick to my diet (I am doing 4 Hour Body diet)
  • Go to the gym 4x a week (stretch/cardio every day and slowly add in weights)
  • Sleep a minimum of 7 hours a night.
  • Read 10 books via audiobook, ebook and regular book. 2 of them need to be non-fiction because I tend to be more of a fiction girl and 2 need to be a classic because I tend to read newer stuff.
