Today is Day 1 for my next 30 day challenge with IDLife. Each month since January IDLife has sponsored a transformation challenge. Top male and female wins a $1000. In February they added the Top 5 would win a workout with Jen Widerstrom from the Biggest Loser and also an IDLife investor. I set this as my goal and on March 10th the winners were announced…… My name was the second one to be called!!!!!!!!! I can’t tell you the emotions I went through, first I was like what is that my pic, then I was like wait a minute that is my picture, then I wanted to rewind the video but it was a FaceBook Live so I had to wait until it was over to watch it again! I started crying when it hit me that I had achieved the goal I sat out to hit on February 1st. I believed in myself and so many around me did as well and I couldn’t believe we had achieved it! At that moment I knew exactly what would be next, set the goal to win the $1000 in March. I have 38 lbs left to hit my ultimate weight loss goal of 88 lbs. I will achieve it this year and maybe even by my 47th birthday in June. But if not by June I will not beat myself up and I will continue down the journey. The weight didn’t come on over night and won’t be released overnight.
So today is Day 1 for the new challenge and I spent all of Sunday doing meal prep and making sure my excuses were covered, meaning there is no way I can order pizza, or run through a drive thru because I didn’t plan lunch or dinner. Breakfast is covered with my IDLife meal replacement shake. With all the standing at the counter and stove yesterday I think I aggravated my SI joint so I was hurting a bit. I am hitting the gym tonight to work out this SI pain it will be some light bike work but I will achieve what needs to happen.
