It's Been A While

Saturday, July 02, 2011

Hey everyone. I know, it's been too long. Hopefully, now that summer is here and school is over, I'll have more time, especially while on vacation. I joined a new challenge and I had to fill out the entry form. Here it is:

DIY Challenge Entry Form

Challenge Name: Muffin Top Be Gone

My Starting Weight: 121.4

Four Other things I will be measuring during this challenge and their current stats:
1. BMI 27.6%
2. Improving my running mile time/ mileage: 12 min mile/ up to 3miles
3. Blogging at least 3 times a week
4. Eating on plan every day so the number on the scales go down. Want to be under 120 lbs!!

If I am going to be 100% honest with myself, the reason I am doing this challenge is because:
I am tired of feeling fat and bloated. I want my old body back and I am so ready to do it!

I feel like the reason that I have not been progressing as well as I hoped I would be is because:
I've been cheating! Therem I said it. Exercise is not my problem, it's the eating that gets me. The grazing and picking.

this time, I commit to finishing my challenge because I know that:
I have done it before and I can it again. Also, I don't want to disappoint all my team mates doing this challenge with me!

I'm scared of:
Failing and being disappointed with myself again.

I want to:
Feel great in my own body again!

But, I have faith in:
Myself!! I CAN DO THIS!!!

And THIS TIME, I will NOT quit because THIS TIME:
I want it really bad!!

My top five non-health related motivations right now are:
1. My family (4 kids and husband)
2. Feel great in my bikini
3. Have my husband look at me and be proud.
4. Train for an upcoming half marathon
5. Flatter stomach (without a tummy tuck! Want one so badly)

The best way to motivate me is to:
Check up on me and tell me I'm doing great.

The best way I can motivate myself is to:
Keep on exercising, eating healthy and enjoying it every step of the way

My name is ~CHANA~ and I will ~get rid of this baby weight and love my body again~! (Shhh, don't tell anyone, my baby is 8 years old!!)


Ok, so here it goes: emoticon

I'm declaring my independence from:
Saying I can't run a half marathon, my knees hurt! Yeah, I can do this. I'll start out slow and I
work my way up to 13 miles!

Saying, oh, I can eat that, just this once! Nope, you don't need those mini chocolate chips or small slice of banana cake. Every small bite or handful of whatever add up!

Overeating on vacation! Yeah, it's vacation, but not from eating. With all the hiking, biking, walking, etc we'll be doing, why sabotage myself. I'm going to enjoy being with my family, not eating!!

I'm tired of feeling disgusted with my bloated body. I'm tired of looking in the mirror and not liking what I see. This is it. I am DECLARING MY INDEPENDENCE!!!!
