Seventeen, that’s my new goal. Nope not miles, although I’ll be running those soon, I’m talking about pounds.
There, I wrote it. For everyone to see.
It’s no secret that I’m very active and believe in a healthy lifestyle. It’s also no secret that I, like most of America, struggle with weight. Sure, I ride the pounds rollercoaster, too. I’ve seen them come and I’ve seen them go. I’ve been pretty fit and I’ve been, um, pretty fat. Ever since I developed an interest in getting healthy I normally stay at the lower end of the rollercoaster, but still haven’t broken through those last few pounds. For me, it’s seventeen of them.
I feel good, I get happy, and then I get lazy … and complacent. It’s hard work to finish off those stubborn pounds. Busting through the plateau is a bitch. But, I’m here to tell you it’s time to make a change. While I’m busy training for a marathon and tackling my debt I figure why not add one more goal to the list.
*insert blaring trumpets here*
I’m going to lose those pounds, one at time. Until. They. Are. No. More.
My motivation? The joy of knowing I can do what I set my mind to … and a really hot bikini.
