June 8th I turn 30. Yep. The big Three-O. I'm really not sad about it. Really. I'm hoping to make my thirties my best decade ever. I feel like I spent a lot of my twenties self conscious, overwhelmed, and well... lost. It's when I started working out, losing weight, and doing things I never thought I could, that a switch was flipped in my head and I began to feel more comfortable in my own skin. I've also learned a few things about myself. I'm independent. I'm strong. I know I'm capable of great things. And so geared with that knowledge, I'm looking forward to a healthier, happier 30-year-old me.
I've thought long and hard about what I want for my birthday and I have come up with the best birthday present ever. (Now this is where YOU come in.) Join me in a 100-Day Challenge. Now before you moan and groan and decide to go click out of my blog, hear me out! I need some inspiration right now, and I know all of you out there can inspire me. When I found out I had lung cancer last summer, I was blown away by the outpouring of love and support I felt during that hard time in my life. Now that the cancer is gone, times are happier, and I feel this is a small way I can give back to all you who carried me last year, and of course, this gives me a chance to get inspired by all of you!
So here is the deal, starting Tuesday, March 1st the 100 Days-to-30 Challenge begins. I will post every day beginning March 1st for 100 days, (the 100th day being June 8th, my 30th birthday.) I will post my stats (weight, measurements), my workouts, food I'm eating, my goals, tips and tricks, pics, answer questions, whatever. Then I would like those of you who will commit to do this challenge with me to set at least ONE goal, and no goal is too big or too small. Whether it's walking a couple times a week, attempting a Couch-2-5K program, or training for a marathon. Just set a goal. Then leave comments on my posts about your goals, your diet, your workouts, your progress, etc. You can post as often or as little as you want. Then on my birthday, June 8th, I will post all of your stories. If you're comfortable, you can even email me pics and I will post them along with your story. Of course, I'll post my before & after pics, all my stats, and talk about my goals, too. I'm so excited about this and I hope a lot of you participate. If you already have a regular exercise routine and healthy diet, or you don't, it doesn't matter, we ALL can be better. We ALL can push a little harder. I can't wait to get this started, and hear all about you guys, and get inspired.
SO? Who is with me???!!! (Please leave a comment so I know who is participating.) You have SIX days to get yourself mentally ready for this, so think about it, think about your goals and commit to making a change NOW!
6 more days and counting... ;)
