Hello, loves! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday. Maybe you noticed I took a holiday from blogging? This was unintentional. Do you ever find that the longer your break is, the more stuff you find to fill it with? I was somewhat busy for the holidays, but I did get a good bit of r&r in too. I just took a little unplanned hiatus from technology. Well, except from my new Kindle Fire that Santa brought me. And from the wii. And the reason I was glued to the wii over Christmas break??
My new copy of Just Dance 4!! I know. Believe me, I know. But this game is some serious fun, and if you haven’t tried it I encourage you to do so. Now, if you’re an uncoordinated, slightly chunky white girl like me, be prepared to look silly. I know I looked really stupid the first few times I played. But now, after many hours spent laughing at myself, I probably look a little more like this:
Husband always laughs at me when I play, but I don’t care. I’m having a blast, plus it is a pretty good workout! In fact, I think playing Just Dance for several hours over the course of the holiday is what helped me lose a couple pounds rather than gain over Christmas!!
Speaking of, I joined a “Biggest Loser” contest at work. It was $10 to join, and we all weighed in before Christmas break, and have to weigh in every Monday morning. For every pound you gain, you must pay $1!! Whoever loses the largest percentage of their starting body weight wins all the cash at the end of the semester. Since I have gained 15 pounds since our wedding, I knew I needed to do something, and this negative-reinforcement thing sounded like it would keep me in check. So, to go along with that, I will be posting how I am doing on here. AND, I am going to post my actual weight with a picture. Hopefully I can watch my progress over time, and you can all cheer me on!
(Also the picture thing was a spur-of-the-moment idea, so I only have a head shot today. I will do full body next time.)
“I’m just, like, really T-O’d that she hasn’t sent a full body shot yet…”
Ok, so here we go!
January 16, 2013
Weight: 175 lbs.
% Body Fat: 32% (yuck – that’s 56 pounds of my body that is just fat!! I want to get this number down closer to 20%)
I know it’s not fair that this is only my face, but I would like for my chubby cheeks to be a little less, well, chubby.
So there’s one of my New Year’s resolutions I suppose. We have another one, but I will save that for later! Do you have any resolutions or goals for 2013?
