Sister and I started up a new Fitness Challenge (FC); this is the 2nd week. So far it's going well. This time Keith is doing it with me and he is working it like a Rock Star! This gives me tremendous motivation. And as men are able to drop weight so much faster then women, after only 1 week I can already see a difference in him. I'm proud he is working so hard and it makes me want to work even harder.
Starting September 1st, I will be posting monthly photos with weigh-ins so you can all help me track my progress. I have a better game plan this time around and knowing that it's not me alone at home trying to better myself, well that definitely makes it easier. The FC we are doing goes for 13 weeks, which puts us ending right before Thanksgiving. What a great way to head into the holidays. I think when this is over, I will do another one, to keep my momentum going and help me reach my long term goals.
My goal for this year is to lose 30 lbs by 12/31/13. I have a lot of work to do, but I know I can do it. Next year I want to lose the remaining 50. Sadly I will be starting over a little heavier then I was. I've managed to gain more weight (meh) since coming back from my trip to California, in JUNE! Yikes. But that's ok. I'll pick myself up and start again. Some struggles are life long and I'm sure once I get to where I want to be, it won't be a cake walk to maintain. I will have to make a conscious effort until I have redefined my lifestyle. It. Is. Totally. Worth it.
Thanks for being patient with me as I have slacked off on the blogging. Mommy world is hard; working full time, starting a new business, taking care of all my boys at home. Life is crazy but I wouldn't have it any other way.
See ya Monday!!
p.s. Look at what I stumbled across. I was 25 in this picture; so thin & young! I'll be using this as my motivation!!
