A Challenge


Hey! Sorry I have been lazy about posting lately. I didn't wanna keep writing the same song over and over again. And although I was suppose to be back on track I wasn't feeling it. I was looking for extra motivation though and considering giving myself a challenge. I didn't have to. Cos I found out about this awesome blog and the 101 Days Challenge. I joined a little late. So I'm running behind one week. The challenge will end on Labor Day. Each participant comes up with their own goals and every saturday we email Biz to let her know how it's going so she posts everyone's updates on her 101 Update page. I'll be sending my first update next saturday as I joined, I think, on friday. The challenge already have 50 participants!!! Awesome!

So here is my goals for the next 3 months:
  • lose 20 pounds (that would put me at 190lbs) 
  • track food every day (everyday!!! no skipping weekends or giving up on the day if I eat something bad)
  • weekly limit of 11,000 calories (which gives me 1500 calories a day & some change)
  • limit fat and sugar (cos I've been bad!)
  • workout 4 times a week (this one will move slow cos my knees are my masters you know that :)
  • keep my living space organized * this one is important! (I wake up with a better attitude if my room is looking good)
 That also means I should be losing more than half a pound every two weeks!!! I'm gonna have my first "walk" since forever tomorrow. Only 1 km and slow. But it's something. And it means I can walk for 1.5km the next day then 2km the day after...

I also planned everything I'm gonna eat today already. I'm gonna stick to it no matter how much I wanna eat more or different. This week will be hard (cos I failed last week) but next will be easier. I can't wait for next week :)

Happy Monday!

Excellent goals! I really need to work on keeping my living space organized too. It shouldn't be too hard...there are only two of us.

Good luck!

That sounds like a fabulous list! I really need to get back on the workout bandwagon - my little 2 week vacation has been so sporadic it is depressing. With that said - Tonight i plan to take on the GW Bridge! wahooo....(say a little prayer for me.) lol it's gonna be messy. ;)

I'm so glad you joined the challenge. I should have added "keep my living space organized" to my list of goals because I have been putting off some major organization and need to get it done while I have the time.

Good luck with your challenge goals and remember to listen to those knees.

I'm looking forward to seeing us both break into "onederland" by the end of the summer.

Your goals are great. I NEED to sit down and make goals for myself... then follow them! Hey, slow and steady weight loss will stay off.
