8 week challenge?

Friday, March 22, 2013

So at my work, there is a poster for this 8 week challenge where I will have to follow a strict diet and exercise plan. I will have to give up caffeine (oh god help me), sugar, and wheat. I am not sure what else I will have to modify as well but it sounds really good.

A few of the other teachers are thinking of doing it and I might register. I asked the boyfriend if he would be willing to and he said "you can do it but I don't think I will" lol. They have to confirm the prices are for the whole group and not per person and then I will sign up. (I am not dropping 100 bucks for just myself). Four other staff members are going to do it too.

I have to sign up by next Thursday. I think it will really kick my weight loss into gear. They have several before and after pictures and I saw one of the befores and thought "that is me and if I could be that after picture I will be perfectly happy".

    It's not even the ability to commit to the program that has me hesitant to drop 100 bucks on a program. I typically won't drop that much money on any one thing in general. I am very frugal with my money in that respect. I have other things that the 100 bucks could go towards.

    They have posted some good food choices on their pinterest page so I might just follow some of those ideas on my own if I don't do the challenge.

    Thanks for visiting :)

    Wow that sounds really cool I wish my company offered something like that, it's much easier with a support group. I just read your description and identified lol I am the queen of procrastinating :-/ unfortunately, but we will get better just as long as we keep trying :)

    I have heard that people have a lot of weight loss success with eliminating flour and sugar and I'm sure giving up caffeine wouldn't hurt, but you have to do what is best for you. Laying down $100 is a high price if you think it is a plan that you can't stick to. Consider the before and after photos.... are they real people of have they been photo-shopped? Whatever you choose do it for the right reasons! Good luck emoticon
