Katie from http://katie-fttw.blogspot.com/ is hosting the Gettin Sexy challenge for the month of October. As part of the challenge I had to come up with some goals that would make me feel sexier by the end of October. My beginning weight for this challenge was 232.6 lbs.
Here are my goals:
1. Exercise: I'm going to walk 50 miles in the month of October. So far I have walked 36.7 miles so I have 13.3 miles to walk by Sunday, October 31.
2. Food: I'm giving up soda and fast food for the month of October. So far I've not had one week where I have been completely soda or fast food free so I'm making this last week that week.
3. Weight: I'm going to lose 10 lbs in the month of October. As of this morning I had lost 8 lbs so I only need 2 more lbs by Sunday, October 31.
Ok I have a question for anyone that might be able to answer it. I am trying to watch my sugar intake but there are just certain things that I'm use to having sugar in, for example oatmeal. I have reduced how much I use but what can I use in place of sugar that is not as bad for me?
I am only 3.3 lbs away from hitting my 10% weight loss goal. I will have lost a total of 24.7 lbs at this point, I can't believe I'm almost at this goal.
I set a personal goal for myself to walk 160 miles by the end of the year. Right now I've walked 67.2 miles so by the end of this week I will be at my halfway point.
Earlier this week I wrote a post about my neverending lists and I just wanted to give a quick update. Since making my lists I have accomplished so much and I plan on finishing up alot of other stuff by this weekend. It feels so good to be getting things done that I have been putting off. If you are a procrastinator like I am lists really can help, give it a try. I also listed my bucket list and one of the things on my list was to take a picture everyday for a year and I am starting that tomorrow. I plan on sharing those pics on my blog which I hope will inspire me even more to get out and take a picture everyday.
So as you can see this next week is going to be a big week for me. I'll be working more on my walking/jogging routine and building up my endurance. I will be completing two challenges and hopefully hitting my 10% weight loss goal plus hitting the halfway point in my personal challenge to walk 160 miles by New Years. On top of that I'm going to be checking lots of things off my list around home and taking on one of the things on my bucket list. It feels so good to be accomplishing so much and not feeling like I'm just some fat, lazy, slug laying around wishing I could get things done.
I just thought of a few more things that I needed to add on here.
First off if I have commented on your blog and then you responded to my comment and I never responded back then I'm so sorry. I know I have been blogging for a few months and I should have known this but I just now figured out that you can subscribe to the blog you comment on so you get all the comments sent to your email.....another duh moment for me.
Secondly is anyone else unable to access their blog stats? I've sent a comment to tech help and I think they may be working on the problem or at least thats what I was told by someone else.
Lastly if anyone has any healthy easy recipes I would love to hear them. I would love to have some new recipes that use lots of veggies. Thanks alot.
