Nearing the end of YankTON

This is the final 3 days for me for the YankTON challenge.  My final weigh in is on Wednesday (not Friday as I will be in Chicago!)  I am excited but nervous for the end.  It has been a long and difficult journey working hard as a team!  It will not be then end of my fitness journey though!  I hope to continue the good habits I have picked up and continue to reach my fitness goals.
One goal that I have not yet met is to learn more about fitness.  I have been reading and learning more about healthier eating but not so much about physical fitness.  I am hoping to reach that goal through a "gift to self" of Women's Health magazine.  Matt and I got a dual subscription through junior class magazine sales. 
Speaking of my husband, I have to compliment him on his own journey toward fitness.  He has some crazy workouts that make me giggle a little but I am enjoying watching him work so hard toward his goals.  He is doing wonderful and I am very proud of him!
I went shopping again today for pants as I seem to have them dropping off me every time I need to grab a pair for anything so I headed to the store and did pretty well.  I was able to get three pairs of nice dress pants for $20 each!  I am hoping that I can wear them a bit longer than some of my other pants that I bought only this summer.  While it is fun to drop sizes, my wallet would appreciate a break!  I had to turn down a perfectly fitting pair of jeans because I just couldn't convince myself to pay $40 for them.
