I cannot believe it has been 2 MONTHS since my last blog entry! Between work and being out of town, I have had an extremely packed (and exhausting) schedule since the beginning of March. Finally, I am back to my regular schedule, doing my healthy grocery shopping, working out, getting my rest.
Unfortuantely, these last 2 months of craziness have been detrimental to my weight loss goals. I stepped on the scale this morning and weighed in at a whopping 211.2!!! I gained 9 pounds in 2 months! Of course it is my own fault. I have been eating on the run instead of preparing healthy meals. I have not been working out, or getting enough sleep. (I also got diagnosed with endometriosis and I've noticed that I have big gains on the weeks I take the meds.)
But enough is enough! It's gone too far! I gotta to what I gotta do to follow my own advice and "keep it fresh"! So I have joined a challenge on Youtube!
Greg Siegel, THESIEGSTER on YouTube, has a challenge that starts today, Monday April 19th. It is 9 week challenge that ends the first day of summer! It is not a competition, it is a challenge to yourself, so YOU make up the rules! The object is to make a commitment to yourself, NO EXCUSES, for 9 weeks straight.
Here are my commitments*:
1- Weigh-in and Upload a Video weekly
2- Three "Couch to 5K" runs per week
3- At least 30 minutes of toning per week
4- Tweet everything I eat daily
(*See my Entry Video and my Starting Point video.)
I have already tweeted all my food for today. I will also be tweeting my workouts and video uploads. (Follow me and hold me accountable: @gozosa1980)
Let me know if you join the challenge! Let's start the summer off right!
