Seventeen – It’s the Magic Number

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

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.

Winks & Smiles,

GET IT GIRL! I'm glad someone picked up the torch cause my Bikini Bound Project has gone asunder. So I'm just gonna chop someone's head off and glue their body onto mine so I can pose for our bikini pic in Miami.
