I needed motivation and after I started working at my new job...I didn't have any... I also didn't have any time or support.
So i recently saw a post for the NYC area to join a challenge for a local paper and applied even though I am fairly shy and not looking forward to going public with my weight struggles. I know it is very apparent to others when they look at me that I need to lose 30-40 lbs, but it is not discussed. Everyone says I am fine, just chubby. So it is all of our dirty little secret that we do not talk about.
Anyway, I applied for the challenge and I have been accepted. Lets hope this is the kick in the butt I needed and I get back on track.
They have taken my pictures which was fine....but then they did the unspeakable.... they asked for my weight and measurements! How dare they! But I gave in and let them know.
I have been assigned a diet plan and I have been given 6 wks to follow this diet plan and see what happens.
I don't have the book yet but the challenge started today :) That is the bad news... the good news... I woke up early to work out again.
Im out of shape and didn't wake up early enough. I was able to do 10 minutes on the exercise bike and 15 push ups and reverse crunches on my exercise ball. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to accomplish more.
Wish me luck and I will try to keep you posted!
