Now they have introduced a new challenge. The Power of One. This challenge will span over 8 weeks and push us to learn more about our mind and body and I am excited for yet another challenge. So this week kicks off the challenge and I weigh 168 pounds. I first of all have never weighed this little, in probably 12 years. I am fitting into sizes I never imagined possible. I remember prom dress shopping my junior year of high school and having a hard time finding a size 12. I plan to go through and find some old pictures to share with you, I too am curious to find the last time I was "small" and not over weight. Now I am a size 6 and wearing small and medium shirts! I went shopping and did not try anything on and have to return my size 6 dress pants I bought for work and medium shirt because they are too big! Thats an experience I have never witnessed before.
My goals for this challenge are:
- To train train train for my first ever half marathon. It is fitting that the challenge ends Feb. 23rd and My race is Feb. 27th! I need to run at least 5 days a week come hell or high snow I will be running be it outside or sucking it up and hitting the treadmill.
- To lose 18 pounds. Wow this is a lot of weight in 8 weeks. Yup it is. But you know what is I can lose 18 pounds it will put me at a 150, this is the magic number that brings my BMI to an official "healthy weight". This will mean in just 1 year I lost 102 pounds and went from morbidly obese to healthy. I joined Weight Watchers on February 24th 2010 so On my anniversary I want to reach that healthy BMI mark and 100 pounds lost.
- To weight train more. As I have been training for my marathon I have only been doing my kettle bell video and Jackie Warner's video 1-2 times a week. I would like to do some weight training at least 4 days a week like I was a few months ago. I feel it will help my body tone more and shed those last few stubborn pounds.
