On top of my own personal fitness/weight loss challenge that I’m doing with the P90X and the 80-day weight loss challenge, I get to work yesterday and I’m informed about a fitness challenge that will be starting on August 1st! It’s a $10 buy in per person. It’s not about weight loss, it’s about meeting goals you’ve set out for yourself. How awesome is that? I am, of course, going to participate in it. I’m looking forward to it. That’s just one more thing to motivate me and help keep me on track to reach my goals and to then maintain them. You see, the term of the challenge is one year. So, it’s starts this August 1st and ends next year on August 1st. I plan to reach my goal of 45 lbs lost by my birthday (Dec. 14th), but then I have to immense task of MAINTAINING that weight loss. If I can maintain it that long, then I should be good for the long term. After I've reached my weight loss goal of 45 lbs (hopefully by my goal date), I will set new goals for myself that are strictly fitness based. For instance, bicycle 50 miles a week or walk 25 miles a week. Or maybe, it will be to start and complete a fitness program, like P90X2 or Insanity. I want to go to this place that does non-surgical pain relief. They claim (and a friend/co-worker has had it done) that they can “cure” shin splints. I want to do this because I want to start running. So, if I get that done, another goal of mine can be to do one 5K a month. The options are practically endless, really.
