Whoop, did the last day of the AwesomeAugust challenge today. Biceps and Triceps curl with small weights and a 'quickie' 2.5k run. August has been awesome and I'm set to Shred September. At this rate I'll be looking good by December. In fact, I could go for being Drop Dead Gorgeous by December!The sentiment is nice, anyway.
With day 24 of activity complete today, I've finished my second project since recomitting myself 2 months ago. Two months of sticking to it has seen me melt 2 stone away. I've gone from *just* running 60 seconds to doing 5k every other day. From overeating to counting calories honestly. From fizzy drinks to 3.5litres of pure water every day.
I feel fantastic after two months. All I need to do now is maintain this current rhythm, and I'm winning all round. With under 40lbs to lose to hit a healthy BMI, I have my sights set on the New Year as a goal. 10lbs a month would see me go into 2011 'healthy' in every sense.
So Jess' challenge for overall health is *perfect* for me, and I'm excited to have another group of motivated bloggers to journey with.
Each Sunday I will be turning in my 'report' to Jess.
1. A photo of yourself with a self-motivational note.
2. Posting your weight is completely optional.
3. At least one but no more than five long-term goals.
4. One brag for the week.
5. One thing to improve upon for next week.
So, starting a week late (as DDGBD began last Sunday, but I promised myself one 'challenge' at a time while I refound my mojo) I'll post my first report here, as I think I'm late for deadline (never was good at handing in my homework)
|'won't stop getting back on it'|
(defense of the strop face - I asked Sam to take a pic and it was this, or deranged. We've seen enough of the lunatic-me, so emo-me is getting some
Starting Weight: 179lbs - now 177lbs
Goals from now until December:
- Drink 3.5litres (14 glasses) of water a day.
- Complete 10k run.
- Complete 100 Pushup Challenge.
- Get back into size 10 clothes.
- Go out to socialise (that's me, not my kids) / email/phone someone *just* to be sociable every week - (this could be hard! I can tend to be a hermit).
ONE brag for the week: I went out running, in the rain. I was soaked to the bone but I ran my 5k anyway. I used to run to get IN from the rain, now I go out in the rain to run.
ONE thing to improve upon for next week: Getting myself showered and dressed before lunch every day, rather than focusing on kids and house and leaving self looking like a scarecrow!
