A new day
Monday, June 13, 2011
I joined the site, was all hopped up about it and then sort of took a breather. Usually you do something for awhile before you decide to take a break from it, but I like to do things backwards. No, I really just didn't have my head totally in the game. I let myself do whatever I wanted and now I'm back and I'm ready.
The group I am in has a biggest loser challenge. It's a big team challenge. Today is day one and I'm totally psyched up and motivated. I am going to be excellent and rock this out. Excellent doesn't mean I think I will lose 50 lbs in 10 weeks or anything crazy like that. Excellent means I am going to lose at least 2lbs a week, every week for 10 weeks so that I lose at least 20lbs. For me, that is a big goal. Not unattainable, but definitely something I have to put serious effort into to achieve. These next 10 weeks will be the driving force to help me get my motivation and momentum back. To push me toward my ultimate goal of losing 111lbs (now) by the end of next year. If I stay the course and don't go crazy or lose my way that should be doable.
I joined the challenge because it is a team challenge. I figure if I have other people not only relying on me but rooting me on it will be so much easier. Of course, only time will tell. Sometimes making the right choices can be so daunting. It's so weird that the decision to eat a cupcake or a celery stick can be so huge. They're both such small things. But it's those little things I toil with almost everyday. Hopefully, the voices of supportive souls in a similar place as me will creep into my head and help me when that weak voice tells me to go ahead and eat the cupcake.
Anyway, I just wanted to write and blab all my feelings out. I feel SO good today. I added all my exercises into my fitness tracker for later, I put my pedometer goals in it. I'm excited about that. My goal is 10k steps a day. I think I can do it too. Which reminds me, I need to take a walk...
