Uh oh. Today is June 11th. Crap.
That means I’m officially one month away from my thirtieth birthday.
For the first few weeks of my Dirty Thirty Weight Loss Challenge, I had been very strict with my diet and exercise and the weight poured off. I went from 131 to 125 in the span of 10 days (a little fast), but have since stalled out and even gone backward a bit.
I’ve been REALLY into sweets lately and it’s showing on the scale – I’ve been stalled between 127-128 for almost two weeks. Seeing the calendar today was exactly what I needed: a swift kick in the butt and a reminder that I’m not getting any younger. It will only getting harder to lose this weight the more I postpone it, so I need to kick myself into gear and finish what I’ve started.
Starting today, I’m back on clean eating (with a small, daily cheat permitted – I am human) and a rigorous exercise program.
My goals will be to stay under 1,300 calories, stay moderately low carb, and to burn at least 5,000 calories per week through my workouts. That means intense gym visits, but I know I can do it.
The goal: under 120 by 7/11/2014.
Let’s make it happen!
Bon appetit, my friends!

You can do it! The 30’s are fun!
Thank you, Ames! I’m looking forward to it!
Loving the 30’s:) he he
Good luck with your goal….am sure you will reach it:)
Thank you so much! I think if I get back on track I can still hit my goal without any serious measures. I’ve been REALLY indulging in sweets lately (for some reason, sugars make me gain weight, even if I’m watching total calories), so trimming those down will help. 🙂
Having the same battle with chocolates:( so also trying to stop that. Eat perfectly and then use it as an excuse to eat up my bodyweight in chocolate. Lol
Yep! That’s my problem. I work out REALLY hard and then use it as an excuse to indulge in multiple sweets. It doesn’t help that I just purchased 18 delicious, decadent gluten-free/vegan cupcakes! They are teasing me right now in the fridge!
