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!
