25,000-29,999 SparkPoints 26,741

Day 1... 90 days to go!

Friday, April 13, 2012

The next 13 weeks are going to be tough. I entered a weight loss contest! The grand prize is $5,000 which goes to whoever loses the highest percentage of their starting weight.

I have a couple of friends, as well as my husband, helping me out with this.

My game plan as of right now is

*Eat high protein, low carb, lots of veggies and fruits.
*At least 20 minutes of cardio everyday except Sunday.
*NO fast food, candy, or ice cream.
*No night time snacking (After 8pm).
*Post visual goal reminders: $5,000 signs on the pantry, 'fridge, and at my desk at work.
*Blog on SP daily to keep my goal fresh and motivation up.

I really want to win because this would be a nice hunk of change to go towards the down payment of a house that my husband and I are saving for.

Until next time...
