I'm told that honesty is the best policy, so here it is:
I've been slacking hardcore for the past two years. Actually, slacking doesn't even begin to describe what I've been doing. I've been self sabotaging myself and allowing all of my faults to take the foreground. I've had multiple small lapses of motivation; the kind that I think of in my head but never do anything about. You know those moments when you pump yourself up mentally and are all gun-ho about "doing it this time" while you look down to see that you just devoured an entire container of icecream.
I have plenty of reasons why I need to lose weight and get fit. I am certainly not lacking there. I want to wear a little black dress to my court date that finalizes my divorce, I want to wear a tiny little club outfit out dancing, I want to run a 10K, I want to feel comfortable in a bikini, and health. Can't forget about health reasons!
So now, faced with an ultimate reason to look stunning- my most favorite driving force of motivation. To make someone else jealous. Now, before you go judging me (judge me all you want after you understand me... you at least need a basis for your judgement). I am going through a divorce and there would be no better satisfaction than showing up smoking hot to the next function that I see my ex and his new set of boobs at. The new... I have no words to describe her- is a relative of mine... so I know I will be seeing my ex again. Gah!
The next time that I am going to be seeing family and relatives is on July 4th... and since I work the best when there is competition, I made a bet with a friend for $100. Who ever loses the most (percentage) weight and inches, wins the money from the other person.
On June 4th, I am taking all new "starting" photos and measurements.
I am an easily obsessed person who gets stuck on things quickly. My current addiction is rewatching all of the episodes of Nip/Tuck. In one of the episodes, Julia Macnamara makes the comment on how, "nutrition is the new plastic surgery." This got me thinking back to wanting to try clean eating...so here is my plan!!
I am going to track my nutrition daily and stay on track
I am going to exercise daily and stay on track
I am going to walk a minimum of 10,000 steps a day
I am going to WIN $100!! no.. scratch that- EARN $100!!
