I signed up for the Summit Weight-loss challenge and now you guys get to be my accountability. Yay!
I\’ve gotten chubby. Over the holidays I said good-bye to self control and said hello to indulgence. I tried to get it back together in January, but then there was valentines day, my birthday, my anniversary, and a million other reasons to indulge. I\’ve been overly busy and not making exercise the priority that it needs to be. I\’ve been drinking soda!! Not having a gym membership hasn’t helped-I work out occasionally at home, but it’s HARD.
I was really excited when I found out The Summit Athletic Club is doing a weight-loss challenge. For free. I need this so bad. So there I am, weighing in after having a last meal of my favorite chocolate cake.
MY GOALS: I currently weigh 205 lbs on their scale. My goal is to get down to 175-180. I also just LOVE the way my body feels when I take better care of it and exercise. I\’ve been sore and bloaty for the last few months and it’s not my favorite.
- Vegetables with every meal.
- More sleep at night.
- Cardio every day.
- Drink water, not calories.
- Build Yoga/Meditation into my lifestyle.
- No more eating at night.
- Try some new work-outs
- Check-in/blog about this weekly
I\’ve been at it for a day and a half now and I\’m doing great!! lol. I did attend my first Aqua Zumba class last night and I loved it. It was very low-impact and worked out my arms more than I anticipated it would. I\’ve been drinking green smoothies and cutting back on any junk food (without fully eliminating everything-I don’t want to go through cold-turkey withdrawal).
The crazy thing is that I know better. I know what I need to do to fix everything…I\’ve just been too lazy to do it. I\’ve been teetering on the edge of doing better and I just needed this last little commitment to really make it happen. So wish me luck!
