Phase 1: Kicking it into High Gear-The Kickoff

December 30, 2011

Good morning!

I hope all is well with my audience today, FRIDAY! yay!

I have to let you all know, yesterday, while on a quick lunch trip to get a jamba juice, I saw a flyer in their window for an all-women’s event. A half & quarter marathon! So, I got a bit excited and did the research and it is being held at the Hilsboro Stadium right next to my present job location.

I was thinking about signing up, but there is a $69.00 enrollment fee and I would have to enroll now as it is limited to 3500 women.  I have decided to for go this marathon run, but it has not stopped me from using it as a goal to acheive. As I was reading about this marathon, I found there are tons of other marathons! This Hippie Chick marathon is going to be held in honor of mothers day on May 12th 2012, so I was thinking on this day, I am going to do a marathon of my own! I haven’t figured out all the details, but I can tell you it will be just as long as this one! ♥

So now onto phase 1 of My Challenge.

Tomorrow. Saturday, December 31 I will be at my local 24 hour fitness working out for a couple of hours, and then coming home napping and workingout to some amazing videos and xbox kinnect games-Zumba to be more specific, but there are others as well.

I am using tmrw as a jumpstart to the new year and to Phase 1 which starts Sunday, Jan 1! I am vry excited for Phase 1 as it begins the first 3 months of the 75lb goal! I am hoping to exceed it by a few pounds.  But I will take the 75 🙂

Some of you may wonder why I have chosen the 75lb goal in 3 months. Well, if you have ever seen Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition, you will know that it can be done (100lb goals usually) while still living your normal life. All you do is incorporate a lot of exercise, nutrious food and tell your mind you can. A lot of  it comes from mind over matter. Your body is capable of so much!

So the second thing with Phase 1. I will not be weighing myself every day and obsessing over the scale. Iam going to try to weigh myself once a month. That will be a total of 3 weigh-ins.  I may slip and weigh myself 2 times a month, but we’ll see. I just don’t want to get too wrapped up into it and fall back. This is a huge mile stone for me to not weigh myself daily.

So are you with me? Are you ready? What is your challenge? How are you planning on accomplishing it? What’s your story?

Make 2012 more than just another year. And don’t give up!
