Weight Loss Challenge: Day #11

Friday, August 13, 2010

I'm excited because my family has jumped on board of this Weight Loss Challenge! Starting Monday, my mom & dad are going to actively try to make healthier lifestyle choices and lose weight with me. It's nice to have a support system! :) We're using  Fat Bet, which allows you to set your own challenge up and keep track of your progress. You pick your own deadline and target weight, then you set up the prize. It's pretty awesome and it will allow us to keep track without having to chase each other down.

So far, I've worked out 3 times this week. Tonight's workout will be the 4th. I've started the Couch to 5K program because 1) I'm seriously out of running shape and 2) I'd like to start from scratch and establish a steady running pace because mine is all over the place. I guess I just gave up after last year's half-marathon. I'm paying for it now. Eh. Anyways, that along with Wii Fit is what I'm doing right now until I join Crunch! I super excited about that because I've loved their classes for EVER (check out that pic of the anti-gravity yoga. NO. JOKE). I'm now in a position to be able to afford it, so I'm going to bite the bullet and do it. Then I'm going to get my bhangra on. : D

I've maintained my calorie count. I realize, though, that I don't eat nearly enough fruits & vegetables and I need to drink more water. So starting next week I'll be taking a page out of Madame's book and itemize exactly what I'm eating. It'll help me to hold myself accountable.

(On a side note...you should really check Madame's blog out. It's called Madame: The Journey of a Weight Loss*ista and it has a lot of really great content but it's not boring by any means. She's not preachin'...she's just inspiring.)

Also, those who are trying to lose weight should check out Healthy Dining Finder -- It seems to have just started but it gives some great options for who want to eat out but want to make healthy choices when doing so. Just enter your zip code and voila! It gives you restaurants in your area and tells you what their healthiest dishes are. Sweet, right?
