Way vs. Excuse

If you really want something, you will find a way. If you don't really want it, you will find an excuse.

Challenge and Weigh In

So, I enjoy reading this guy's blog. He is very direct, to the point, and generally no BS when it comes to losing weight. 

A few days ago he posted a challenge, and I wanted to do it. I didn't know what the prize was before I signed up - thought is would be a t-shirt or something, but I really didn't care about the prize - I just wanted a motivator. 

It's a straightforward challenge: Drink enough fluids to keep your body hydrated at it's current weight, and eat enough calories to maintain your GOAL weight. 

The challenge ends June 15th....and the person with the highest percentage of the weight that they want to lose, lost...WINS! 

My starting weight for the challenge is 452 (the weight discrepency is due the fact that I picked my starting weight for the challenge based on my home scale, and I weigh at my shake ladies place for my official weekly weigh ins). 

On Sunday, Allan posted the prize for the challenge:

The winner and a guest will receive 
2 round trip tickets from anywhere in the Continental US to NYC
The flight is on Nov 28th
Accommodations at The Jewel Hotel for 3 nights
Party the night of the 29th during the 
NBC/Rock Center Tree Lighting Event
Theater Tickets with me the night of the 30th
Return flight on the 1st of December


Umm...yea....I'd say that's some motivation!

Now...onto my weigh in:

33 pounds in two months! Pretty it good enough to win a trip to NYC? I dunno...but I'm totally stepping it up!!! 

Most exciting thing...16.5 inches gone around my belly! Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. 

Time to kick it up a notch, Emeril style, ya'll!

21 Days of Pure Awesome

It takes 21 days to form a habit. 

I've been losing weight - sure. But I haven't really been FULLY committed. Just kind of been hem-hawing around. A cheat day here - a few too many days skipped at the gym. I'm not being hard on myself - I'm just being real.  
There are 21 days until my hunger walk. So, I'm committing right now to 21 days of KILLING IT! 

21 days of working out. (at least 30 minutes of activity)
21 days of staying EXACTLY on point with my calories and Herbalife. (no cheat days!)
21 days of perfection. (yup - perfection)
21 days of punch-you-in-the-crotch fantastic

21 days of AWESOME!

Martha Jane's Top 10: Rules for Gym-time

10. Never wear light grey pants if you are a crotch sweater. No sweaty Camel Toe, please.  

9. If I can see nipples - then, Dude, you are not wearing enough shirt.

8. Please, for the love of all things Holy - take a shower. 
7. If you cannot life the weight you are holding without scream/grunting so loud that the whole place can hear you - it's time to take it down a couple pounds. 
6. If you need to spit - BTW...WHY? WHY would you need to spit?!? - please walk the 10 feet into the locker room and spit in the sink, rather than the water fountain. 
5. Staring at me will not make me do my sets faster. It just won't. 
4. If you are able to talk on your cell phone (laugh, giggle, carry on) while on the treadmill - it might be time to go a little faster. 
3. Standing in the weight section talking to your boyfriend will he lifts weights does not count as a workout, and it will not get you in shape. 
2. Eating a DOUGHNUT (i'm not joking - I saw this) - on the treadmill might be a little counter productive.
1. It bears repeating - TAKE A SHOWER!!!

Weigh In February 9

I know that I didn't do everything I could this week to loose as much weight as I could. So - I'm just moving forward, and doing everything I can THIS week.

Vanishing Tummy

On Sunday, I was at the gym doing a weight workout...and when I looked up - I didn't recognize myself in the mirror for a minute. 

It's the first time I've looked at myself and saw progress!


I think my stomach looks SO much smaller. 

It's very encouraging to see change...especially after I was slightly disappointed in my loss this week.

P.S. - Are you totally jealous of my super-awesome-stylish bandana?

Yea, I know.
