So with just pausing to think for a few minutes am launching into this bare-all post. My goal that is. I mean, usually before peopel start fessing up on their blogs, they at least spend a day or night sleeping over the implications, pros, cons and the use of such confessions. Then again, we talking me. So plunging right on ahead:
I need to lose 10 pounds. Pronto. Like yesterday.
Oh wait, guys/men. This is purely girlstuff. Unless you like listening to vents, rants, and enjoy the whole drama that women go through while they lose baggage, you may not want to pay close attention to what’s being written here. Like for example, I plan on titling the countdown, so if you see a number, skip right on ahead, coz on occasion I will of course have other things to talk about than me obsessing over my weight loss! See, how thoughtful I am! ;-)
Oh, if you’d like you can join the girls too, I wouldn’t mind at all, in fact it would be supportive if you do actually!
Alright, so girls. I need help. As in desperate, girlfriend help. Where you svelte or very-happy-in-your-skin ones can stand in the sidelines and cheer me on. I would also totally love girlfriends who would actually jump in with me and race with me towards this goal I am now obsessed with.
Here’s the deal.
Goal: 10 pounds off in 48 days. (Starting today November 24th through Jan 10th)
Why: Coz! (okay, real reason, is I have to get on stage on Jan 11th, and dance dresses have a way of bulking you up)
- Cutting carbs
- Exercising 30 minutes a day (chauffering doesn’t count)
- Drinking 8 glasses of water
- Staying motivated*
* – That’s where I heavily rely on you all of you, coz falling off the wagon would automatically throw the rest of the 3 above.
I know 10 seems like a huge number but it isn’t and I’ve done this before, maybe not in 48 days, but a few months and it was 15 lbs. I’ve managed to drop THREE dress sizes a few years ago, without going on a major dieting spree, but purely by doing weights(twice a week), swimming (twice a week) and dancing(once a week). It’s do-able, and I know I can. Catch being I need a kickstart. Like the TVS 50 back home sorts. That’s the reason I post now. Despite this bravo attempt, am keeping the numbers within wraps, for obvious reasons, apart from them being hugely personal. My weight now, to the measurements, to what I ultimately land in.
The range in the numbers as I hope they go down, I shall happily publish weekly.
I am not quite sure how I plan on constructing the intake and workout plan considering my knee is still swollen and not as strong at all, and what would find its way on this blog, but bent I am on putting myself out there to be criticized, and hey, even made fun of too! I don’t care in any case!
If you thinking it’s a badtime to start this during the holiday season, think again, if I can do it now, I can do it anytime correct? ;-)
Alright, who’s gonna help me, encourage me, be hard and harsh with me and tuck me under their wings and offer solace, words and humor while I sweat and melt the fat, and threaten to jump off this? More importantly, anyone else want to countdown with me?
Will post at night on how the day went. Here we go. :)
