Ok, some more than others I'm sure, but overall, I am the type of person who likes a good challenge. We are in the start of the New Year and while most of us resolve to do the things we know we don't really want to do OR we resolve to not make resolutions because we are going to break them anyway, I feel the need to make a few changes in my life. Changes that do not require a resolution, but perhaps a goal of sorts.
In order to focus on what I WANT to do I have decided to break it down into manageable pieces and create goals. (remember, I made a resolution, which I am working on, but I need a plan of action...er go = goals) To get from point A to point B I need to focus on how and one of my first goals is going to be Lose Weight.
I'm not talking massive miracles here (but if your listening, I would gladly accept one) Instead I am talking about 6 pounds of unwanted weight.
Why just 6?
Glad you asked.
It's not that I have just 6lbs I want to lose, nope I'd prefer much more than that, however, 6lbs gone and I feel better about myself AND I decided to do the Special K challenge, which says UP TO 6LBS in 2 weeks. Since the challenge does not guarantee 6lbs in 2 weeks I am going to extend this time frame by 2 additional weeks, making it a total of 4 weeks which is a relatively normal and healthy weight loss of 1-2 pounds per week.
You are all going to be my accountability.
If I succeed with this then I am going to owe you all a BIG Thank You, BUT (and it's a big BUT) if I do not lose the 6lbs by February 19 (4 weeks from today) I am going to give the first 10 people who comment a gift card to their favorite sandwich shop - i.e. Subway, Jason's Deli, McAlisters, Lenny's, Firehouse subs, etc. When you comment, be sure to leave your choice.
I'll update on Thursdays so be sure to check back.
What kind of Challenges are YOU tackling in 2009?
