Yes, boys and girls - I've signed up for yet another weigh-loss/ fitness contest at my gym.
Call me crazy, stupid, or insane, but I think I can do well in this one too. (Brief History Lesson: Won the first one I ever went in - lost 42 ponds - Won body fat% lost in 2nd contest - 5.2%)
So Why not try again?
It coincides nicely with my plans for this time of year:
- Training for the Vancouver Marathon.
- Running in the Merville 15K & Comox Half again.
- Keeping my svelte figure. Hahaha
I find that being involved in something like a simple contest keeps me on-track (Nutritionally wise) for the duration of the training. (Point in fact: So dying for a Peanut Butter Sandwich or two right now..but I'm being strong..)
Having my name and progress posted on a public board where people I know can see and check out really helps. If I don't make progress, everyone in the gym will bug the shit out of me.
I might even post some of my stats here, just for the hell of it - hey, at least I'd be blogging something, right?
I'd say wish me luck - but I think I'm going to be okay on this one... at least for the first week.
