Ready, set, GO!

The official start to the Christmas countdown challenge is today! I'm thinking of it more as a countdown to new years eve, since that's exactly 4 weeks from today. I need to state my goals and how I'll get there. Hmm... My ultimate goal is to lose 40 pounds, but I think over the next 4 weeks if I can lose 10 I'll be doing good.

M-F I plan to work out at 6pm after getting home from work and seeing my hubby off to his job on the nights he has to work. I think I'll do the turbo jam DVD's I've had forever but never really used. Weekends I still want to work out, but I might switch it up so I don't burn out on turbo.

I'm also still trying to cut back on carbs and especially sugar, and I'm pedaling away off and on throughout the day at my desk at work. I also need to drink more water. Not trying to overload myself with too many changes at once, but more water, less sugar, and daily exercise isn't too terrible.

That's the plan, so we'll see how it goes. I took some "before" photos... yikes!!! I know the camera is supposed to add 10 pounds, but I think mine adds 25. I can't wait to take new, improved pics.

    Good for you! I'd say good luck, but I just read an article about making choices, and that we need to "choose" to do things instead of just saying we "should" or "must". So instead I guess I'll say "Good choosing!"
