The Stopwatch Starts Now

Day one.
I needed a wake-up call.
I’ve noticed my jeans getting tighter for awhile now… today I know exactly what the damage is. Yes, I stepped on the scale today (something I have not done since September of last year). Last Fall my weight wasn’t an issue because I was running my butt off training for a half marathon. I was on a constant runners high and could literally eat and drink whatever I wanted. Fast forward to January of this year and the mere thought of running was physically/soulfully painful. I was incredibly burned out – probably for the first time ever in my life of exercising. In March, I knew I had gained some weight, and not ready to start running again, I started P90x. I have yet to miss a workout, however, I have not been mindful of my calories. I have been over indulging in wine and what I like to call “2nd Dinner”.

I know what I need to do.

While healthy eating is a lifestyle, most people are successful when there is an end date to the goal of weight loss. I’ve set one up for myself and for a few of my girlfriends.

In 8 short weeks the weight I have added over the past 9 months will be gone. It’s a realistic goal. I honestly haven’t gained that much weight, but it’s all relative. My clothes feel tight. Enough said.

In 8 weeks we will be poolside sporting our bikini bodies and feeling amazing due to our commitment, motivation, and hard work.
Tick tock – 8 weeks is a bleep in the grand scheme of things. We can do this.
