Challenge...

10 weeks until Christmas.

20 lbs.

My challenege is going to be to try to loose 20 pounds before Christmas or 1 dress size. Sound crazy? Yes because in reality that would be 2 pounds a week. Nothing in life has changed so that mean I will still be as busy as normal. BUT. If I want change 'I' have to change.

In addition to the longterm goal I will have a few short term goals. Ready? I am not.

Week 1 -

Work out 4 days this week and walk for 30 minutes 5 days this week. Today (Sunday) until next Sunday will be my week.

Also part of my challenge will be to chronicle my food intake on that happy little iphone app that counts your calories.

Also on week 1 I am going to give up bread. I thought about doing the first two weeks of South Beach, last time I did I lost 11 lbs in two weeks (so I may resort to it). BUT I need some energy that some carbs will give me. So I will only be eating rice or couscous or beans or lentals. Wow, that list sounded a lot shorter in my head. Though it will only be 1 serving or 15 grams of carbs per day. (Scott has to have between 60-90 carbs per day due to his health issues) So it will be difficult to watch him eat all the carby goodness while I resist. Blah.

That is all. That is my weekly goal.

Today I walked for 30 minutes on the treadmill.

Woohoo!! You can totally do it. :) Just push through those first few days and the workouts especially will start to become a habit. :)
