Well my bloggy peeps.
First things first, the song has strong language...if you don't like cussing...turn it off.
I just love the message. I looked for a clean version but couldn't find it.
so, forewarned is forearmed. It's a cuss fest, but the song has a lot of heart regardless.
I decided something.
I have decided that I am not going to meander after all..I have tried. I don't like 'meandering'.
I am not the slow and easy type. I need a goal. I need to set my eyes on something and conquer it. IT's my personality...It's who I am. It's how I Roll...not like the relentless mississippi, more like a ball of fire.
I can meander at goal weight.
RIGHT NOW...I just want to get there.
So, I am going to buy a pair of size 8 pants and head in that direction.
In the spirit of decisiveness, I have decisively decided to make up my own challenge.
I am going to call it "I refuse to balloon in June'.
Last year I did every day in May. I love rhymes.
Well, I walked every day in May. It kept me on track, it gave me momentum.
I fiddled with the idea of 'maintaining' my not goal weight through June..
*insert whiny voice for next sentence*
It was going to be hard, I would be traveling, what if someone held me down and force feeds me ho hos in arkansas...
It's been known to happen.
So, anywhoozle...except we aren't going through arkansas
I realized that I was setting my mind for mediocrity, or in more accurate terms...
So, instead of maintaining.
I am going to lose.
At least 1 lb a week.
That means on this vacation lalapalooza, I will be exercising every single day of my trip.
That means in strange hotel rooms, at my MIL's house....even the night we arrive...
I will be asked why I can't just 'let it go'.
I will be forced to refuse that promised 'bucket of chicken'.
I want to prove to myself and you guys that losing weight while having food thrown at your face for days on end is possible.
The challenge will keep me in the game.
There is only one problem with this whole thing.
I should be able to blog, especially at my MIL's house ...it will be three solid days there of blogging.
But the traveling time will be hit and miss...I will blog daily in word and post when possible.
My mom doesn't have any internet whatsoever.
So,I may get one hecka blog Post in, but it will have to be up at the college where I am sure some hippy runs a wi-fi espresso bar.
So the goal is to drop 4 lbs in June.
It's on...I refuse to balloon in June. Anybody with me?
It's nothing official.
Just from June 8th till June 21rst...whatever the circumstances, no excuses...even if it means doing standing push ups at a loaf and jug and lunges in supermarket aisles, even if it means you are doing bicep curls with canned tomatoes at your nephew bar mitzvah, even if...EVEN if, you must jog in parking lots in circles...you will accomplish one hour of exercise every single day...
Have a great night guys.
Talk at you tomorrow.
