Remember that word of the year thing? My word is determination. I broke it down to financially, materially, and physically.
I'm doing fairly well with the first two. That last one....not so much.
I have officially lost zero pounds. Oh, I lost some while still nursing Abby but then gained it back after she weaned.
Matt and I have even talked about it recently. It isn't even so much a looks thing (although I would love to be hot for my husband). I have some family medical history that might skip me or at least be better if I am in shape. Not to mention the next pregnancy will be better if I weigh less and am in shape.
I really only need to lose 20 pounds. 20 pounds! So many other people have so much more to lose and they do it. They get off their butts and move. But not me. I struggle greatly with time. Then summer hits and I get even busier. And it gets hots. I have no desire whatsoever to exercise when I'm already hot.
Then I read about the Living and Active Challenge over at Peak 313 Fitness. It's basically a five week challenge to be more active and to be more in the Word. Both things I am really bad at being consistent with.
So I have decided to join the challenge. It starts Monday, the 16th. Which is honestly quite perfect. I have a very busy weekend this weekend then not again until the end of the month.
I'm not always great with this type of challenge. I am much better with "real" accountability not Internet accountability. I lost 10 pounds in a month when I had a friend to work out with and I could afford a gym membership.
That is why I am telling you about this challenge. Maybe you all can help me stay accountable. And maybe you all want to join the challenge with me. Go over to Peak 313 and check it out.
