12 Week Challenge
12 Week Challenge.
In January 2009, the gym I went to held a challenge for its members to sign up to lose weight and get into better shape. I signed up thinking it would be a perfect opportunity for me to lose the weight I had gained from eating dessert every night with Frankie. Plus, Frankie would be getting home just before the challenge had ended, so I would be looking good for his R&R, and the prize money would pay for our amazing vacation I had planned.
Well, then March 27th happened, and with just a few weeks before the final weigh in, I was planning my husbands funeral instead and the challenge fell by the wayside. I stood a really good chance of winning, and had worked really hard to completely transform my body, but now....all that did not matter AT ALL. Even though I would have probably won from the additional 15 pounds I lost after Frankie was killed, I honestly could care less about it.
Now, two years later, I am signing up again at the end of this week. I usually do things like this without too many people knowing, but I have been lacking motivation lately, and have never really needed help in this area, until now. I love(d) working out, but it just has not seemed important to me lately. So, I am putting it out there into the blog universe that I am going to get my butt into gear and I am actually really excited to get back to the gym, and feel those endorphins lifting my mood.
Trust me, I need it.
I am looking forward to feeling better, and looking better, and I can't wait to capture that top prize!
And I will NOT be posting before pictures --- :) No way, no how. I will keep you updated on my progress though!
