Day 694- New Goal... 6 Pounds in 3 weeks


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, October 25, 2013

Alright, so in exactly 3 weeks, it will be November 15, 2013.

And that just happens to be 1 year away from our wedding date! So I can think of no better gift to myself, then to finally hit that number 175, or 100 pounds down.

This morning I was 181. And I know I've talked about not worrying about the numbers and if I don't make it, it won't be the end of the world, but 100 pounds down has been something I've been wanting for close to a year now, and just never taken the time to dedicate myself to.

So that's the new goal.

To reach this goal, I'm going to continue drinking a ton of water. I have a 1L water bottle that I make sure to drink at least 2 of every day if not 3.

And in case you aren't friends with any Ohioans, we had our first lovely snowfall of the season yesterday. Nothing that stuck, but enough to make you shudder and cry for the sunny days of last week. So my running outdoors may take a hit, so I think I'm going to bite the bullet.

Here at my university, for faculty and staff, it is $120 a semester to use the Rec center. Since it's already halfway through the semester, I would get a prorated membership probably closer to $70-80. And it is $7 a visit if you don't have a membership. So my thinking is if I buy a membership, then I'll at least have to go 10-12 times to make back my money, and also, they have a great indoor track which I ran on a lot last year. Plus, JD gets in free there so we could work out together sometimes.

So yes. New goal to focus myself. 6 pounds in 3 weeks. I'm coming for you 175!

    I know you can do it! tighten up the calories, work your body well, you can hit your mark for sure! I've found that by increasing the length of my runs (while decreasing my pace to help me go longer) has helped get my fat burning better than before. Something to consider. Your mentioning about the water totally reminded me to go grab my water bottle too, lol. Thanks for that! :-D

    Great goal. Just be prepared (I wasn't) that working out is going to build muscle, and that weighs more than fat. The UPSIDE of that is you'll be toning up and revving your metabolism. You'll be looking better by the day and feelin good about your accomplishmnts.

Hugs,and Happy Anniversary!

    Or you could go cheaper and save the money until next semester... Just read Cosch Nicole's blogs where she discusses running and other cold weather outdoors exercise - and she is right there in Cincinnati, OH?? Just a thought.

But I do know what you mean about using a rec center when the weather is yucky. Is there a YMCA near by? The ones here charge $5 per visit non-members, plus they have a sliding fee scale for memberships, as well as scholarships to help reduce the membership costs. There might be similar options for you??

Keep on going!! That's a great goal!!

    The membership will be so worth it. Do it! Make yourself go at least 5 days a week. Believe me you will be so thankful when you see you have lost more than the 100 lbs. What is the rest of your plan to succeed? Food plan etc.

I would like to suggest Spark Coach. For under $8. a month it is so worth it!

Good luck with your goal. Stay focused!
