At the start of the year, I started forming the habit of going to the gym. It is amazing how much can change in just two short weeks. I already feel healthier and like my endurance is improving. I feel great and am excited to keep getting better. I am so much more productive during the day after I get home from the gym.
Last week, I noticed a sign-up for a 30 Day Challenge at the Sports Academy. If you can lose 10 lbs in 30 days, then you get $10 on your account. I know $10 doesn't sound like much, but it was enough to motivate me that much more.
So today I met with a personal trainer who weighed me in and measured my body fat percentage. Sorry, but I'm not quite ready to disclose that information. Then we talked a little bit about some goals. While I only need to lose 10 lbs to complete the challenge and get the money, I want to challenge myself even more. My goal is to lose 15 lbs over the next 30 days. My weigh in date is Feb. 15th.
I will be doing weekly (if not more) updates on how I am doing. This is mostly to hold me accountable. I feel like by posting this and announcing it to the world I will be more likely to actually follow through. Plus I need the support of family and friends. If you offer me something to eat, and I decline...please don't pressure me to eat it. And don't be offended; it has nothing to do with you.
I decided to do before and after pictures. I'm not sure you'll even be able to see much change with only 10-15 lbs, but we'll see. Also, this picture is terrible/embarrassing and it is going to help motivate me.
Ick, those are worse than I thought. Well, say goodbye to that Bobbi. I'm really hoping she'll go away and not come back. Wish me luck!
