Challenge

ok..ok ok. I will say it. I have let go of myself a little. I quit eating like I should, I really didn't run/workout like I needed to...and I eat A LOT of chocolate. I'll admit it, I thought my pants were fitting a little tight. I mean yes, my jeans are stretch jeans...but lately they are not quite stretchy enough...if you know what I mean. I really thought that I would be my young twenties self again soon enough, and my metabolism would kick in (ANY DAY NOW) and my tummy line would go down a little. My tummy. THAT is where allllll the weight goes. THAT is where all the fat goes. THAT is where EVERYTHING goes. Nothing seemed to be happening.
It all was a reality tonight when my dad...yes, my DAD asked me if I was pregnant. WHAT!!!!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS.
# 1 - NEVER SAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT TO A WOMAN.
# 2 - I'm your daughter...BE NICE EVEN IF YOU THINK IT!

So, long story short, I am going on a diet. My plan is to loose about 10 pounds and 2 to 3 inches around my waist. That my sound like a lot for little 'ol Katy, but trust me...IT'S NOT.
Look at my honeymoon picture.
I am not at all embarrassed to put that picture up. In fact I am pretty darn proud. I mean look at me. I LOOK GOOD.

HERE IS THE CHALLENGE...
Tonight, I have taken a picture of myself...in a bikini. A front view, and a side view.
Not a pretty sight. REALLY...NOT AT ALL.
I will POST those horrific pictures to this blog if I do not get to my goal weight/size within 6 weeks. I think that is a reasonable amount of time. It is not a lot of weight, so I should be able to do this.
Now, I know what you may be thinking. THE HOLIDAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
But that makes it even better. I will eat better and keep up my workout throughout so I do not put on more weight.
And that is that.
Wish me luck. I will be back JANUARY 7th with either a lovely new body, or a....well, lets not go there.
I will be sure to keep you all updated throughout the process! If you have any advice for me through your own experience, please share! I am new at this!!!

You can do it! It just takes discipline...that's all!!! I have noticed the "honeymoon" weight creeping in...so I just upped my Tae Bo. :0) Holidays are the hardest though...so I'm rooting for you KK!

Mike R & I are going to try to do a 5k every weekend - or at least every other. I can let you know which ones we're doing and you can run with us. If you can do a 1/2 marathon then a 5k is nothing! :)
