After my last post I really thought about what type of competition would motivate me into getting in better shape. There are tons of gyms out there, why not just pay a monthly fee? I did the math and dont think I could afford it. What else is there out there to pay to use that would motivate you to get in shape?
Early on during the day on Friday, I figured it out. This idea is a great competition and there is always room for improvement. During the month of June 2010, I plan on running in a marathon. Not a full marathon, hopefully a local 5k. I want to work my way up from there.
So, June 2010 is a long ways away and I think by that time I'll have lost most of the weight that I plan to lose which would be great. I hope.
I started watching what I eat, counting calories at SparkPeople.com again, and I got on the treadmill yesterday. I'm slowly easing myself into running, and I dont think I'm going to run outside until I feel better about what I look like.
Also, everyday I'm going to take a profile pic of myself so, at the end, I can see the weight falling off. Don't worry, I'll post it here for you all to watch too!
So today? I plan on eating right, sticking to my fitness regimine and start running outside hopefully by this summer. It's going to be a challenge, but I think I'll be able to stick to it.
As for project me, I don't think the name fits the topic, so I will redesign the logo with the new name and put a post on here, hopefully someone out there wil be generous enough to help me get it started!
If you are starting to think it's time to do something, we can talk! I'm constantly at the computer (half my problem if you ask me) I think communication is an essential part of the weight loss process.
