Over a week ago, 10 days to be exact, my husband told me ” We are going to lose 100 pounds in 100 days, I heard it on the radio.”
After my hilarious hyena like laughter, and basically busting my gut, I stared at him. He was 100% serious. Absolutely crazy, but he heard two guys on the radio who are doing it now. I tried to see if he meant lose 100 pounds together? Nope. Each! CRAZY.
It’s not like I have not been trying to lost 100+ pounds for 3 years or anything.
So we got to talking. Both of us did not make goals related to weigh or healthy eating this year, but boy am I competitive. So we decided on 50 pounds in 100 days, and we weigh in every 10 days.
We have it all marked out on our calendars and white board, and today was our 10th day-
THE WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE 10 DAY RESULTS ARE IN.
Now if weigh in could have been 3 or 4 days ago we would be at -4 pounds each. But, instead of a loss being a downer, hubby is at the gym kickin’ it, and we are still committed to this thing!
At 50 days the winner who is losing the most then gets a brand new workout outfit as a reward. We do have addendum if ( when) I get pregnant the competition can stop, so I don’t lose by default. haha.
So let’s be a little fair here. I have lost weight with ease since starting fertility medications. I found a lot out that since it is making me have normal hormones, while my skin clears up, and I ovulate, having the right amount of hormones makes my body burn calories like it should, sleep like it should, and overall function at a better place than before. I AM impressed! ( And tired of emotions. Seriously I could punch someone one moment and cry about it the next.. )
I am still eating fast food 3-5 times a week. Soda every other day, and other bad things. No gym, and like one run since starting this thing.. and it was short. Husband, however? Shakeology, gym, healthy meals. He is kicking it HARD and super not pleased that I am over here WINNING, and I suck. It almost is like cheating.
I do however still have intentions to stop my coke intake.
I do have intentions to restart Body Pump.
I DO however have limited time, and pretty sure my job will stifle these efforts. Especially when I get pager duty. ( Its a cell phone, but TOTAL SUCK and guarantees overtime pretty much)
So cheers to our first 10 days, and here is to the next 90!
p.s. We have no idea what to give the winner. Any ideas?!
