I’m on a bit of a health kick right now. We’ll see how long it lasts, but for right now, I’m realizing that I’ve got a few post-two-babies pounds to shed before I can even pretend like I’m comfortable in a bathing suit. Or in a trash bag for that matter.
That said, three of my coworkers have signed on to do a mini “Biggest Loser”. We’ve got a password protected spreadsheet and everything! Our goal is to lose 1 pound per week for 10 weeks. Sound easy? Yeah, it won’t be. We took our baseline weights this past Friday. For an added uber ego boost, one of the “Losers” starting weight is 2 pounds LESS than my end goal. Fatty fatty boomba latty.
Now here’s what I’m doing about it. 10lbs in 10 weeks is gonna be hard. But I’m commited! I ate salad for lunch today. BLAMO! And downloaded a Podrunner thingy to my iPod called “Couch to 5K”. (Not taking any credit here, it was another “Losers'” idea and I’m jumping on it.) Basically, over the course of 9 weeks, I’ll gradually work my jelly up to being able to run a 5K. Without stopping. Running. The whole time. Three miles. Sound easy? Yeah, it won’t be. Did I mention I HATE RUNNING? But I’m doing it.
Also signed up on dailyplate.com. It’s an awesome… yet not overly user friendly… website that tracks everything that goes in your mouth and every form of excercise you can imagine. You can put vacuuming on this thing, if you really want to. (And I’m sure I will at some point.) So I added the pancakes I had for dinner tonight. HOLY HOLY HOLY COW! Pancakes are the devil. Carbs… fat… calories… sodium… DE-VIL. Obviously I wasn’t thinking that popping a pancake was like eating a fruit basket, but for crying out loud!!! No more pancakes for me.
