I have fallen off the Band Wagon. Sort of.
My goal during the Christmas/ New Year season was simply not to gain weight. I did GREAT! But since then I have had a hard time getting BACK into the groove of loosing weight, not just maintaining. I have SIX more pounds to loose until I reach my goal weight- which is NOTHING when I think of how far I have come. (44 pounds down.)
So, my best friend Becky told me about a goal she had to get down to a certain weight by Valentines Day. It inspired me, and we made a Valentines Day challenge. We both have our own personal goals of what we want to do, maintaining a healthy weight loss amount throughout the weeks, and we are giving ourselves rewards if we make it. Making it a challenge between the two of us keeps us responsible to one another. We have to report back.
I am writing this post with the idea that it will make me accountable :) . So, the goal for me: loose 6 pounds. Which would put me at 140- goal weight- by Valentines Day.
My reward: Adam and I are going to use a gift card- a Christmas gift from Adam's sister- to have a GREAT dinner at Olive Garden, and then I get to buy something expensive and fun. A- I want piece of clothing, not an I need.
I have taped the gift card to the fridge as a reminder. A picture of the outfit I have already picked out to the bathroom mirror, and I am planning on making paper hearts which serve a dual purpose- fun decorations AND a reminder of the "V-Day challenge" to keep me going.
I have written out a menu for the week, and planned out time for exercise every day. I am making no excuses. I will succeed!
The challenge starts tomorrow so wish me luck!
