Hi all! I’ve got something a little different for you all today. Over the weekend I was watching one of my favorite weight-loss vloggers on Youtube ‘LoseitlikeLauren’ and she mentioned a program called DietBet. How it works is that you chose a game (the game I joined was called PCOS Support Girl, I thought it was rather appropriate), that game has a pot that each player pays into (mine cost $15), then you have 4 weeks from the start of the game to lose 4% body fat. The players that lose their 4% split the pot and make a little money for losing some wight. Being the competitive person that I am, I thought this sounded like fun and it was the perfect motivation to work my hardest the 4 weeks leading up to our Denver trip. So my goal is to lose 11.7 LBS in 28 days. Today is day 1 of 28 and its really helped me be hyper aware of what I’m consuming, how much water I’m drinking (as I type I’m chugging water from my huge water bottle), even how much sleep I’m getting. I’m hoping this will help me jumpstart healthy lifestyle habits and really put some effort into changing my ways of thinking (its already working). Time to “find my fire” as LoseitlikeLauren says.
So for the next 28 days I’m going to chronologize the events as they unfold. What I eat, how much sleep I’m getting, water intake, workouts, what’s motivating me that day, you name it. I will be posting to instagram and then doing a daily recap here to keep you all up to date. The way I see it is, even though I know I’m going to try my hardest to lose 12LBS in the next month, I’m going to win no matter what. I’m excited!
I’ll get better about documenting what I’m doing. Now I need to get back to bed, because my goal for week one is to be in bed by 11PM (still late but better than my usual 1AM). Day one is done son!
Today I’m finding motivation in :
She’s so goofy, and silly, and real, and I want to be just like Lauren when I grow up. I’m a tad obsessed. Just a tad. #squadgoals
Goodnight all! See you tomorrow!
