8 days 'till D-day

Friday, September 30, 2011

The weigh in is 8 days away. I have really mixed emotions. I hate weighing myself. It can be a source of motivation or an extreme disappointment. I began my journey on September 8th, 2011 with the intention of simply getting active. So, I have dedicate myself to getting in at least 3 days of walking. I usually exceed that but that was the initial goal. Which, was a far cry from what I used to do--absolutely nothing. This 5k Your Way Walking Challenge has been working very well for me. I am really enjoying myself.

I had a little experiment going...No changes in diet yet because I want to see what the issue really is: my diet, my lack of exercise, or a combination of the two. Depending upon the results from this upcoming Saturday I will be making additional changes. I went ahead and measured myself today (hubby was all to happy to participate too). I know I should have done this when I first began but, better late than never. The numbers were chilling. It's amazing how easy it is to let yourself go. When it happens over the course of 5 or 6 years you never see it coming. Well, time to get back on the ball.

I have about 4 scheduled workouts before my weigh in, so I am going to try to make the best of them. I guess I'll take a page from the biggest loser handbook and make that last chance workout really intense and go for it with everything I've got. I'll let you guys know how it goes! See you on the 8th :)
