40 days left - 1/40

No, I'm not talking about Lent....I'm talking about a weight loss competition that I started with a couple of my friends 50 days ago. -- 50 days in and I still feel as if I am at day 1.

Although I have been aware of the days slowly slipping by I continue to ignore my countdown widget on my phone until today. For some reason this morning it hit me and made me a bit sad that I have not done anything in this last month and a half. I have $200 on the line and still that has not been enough to motivate me.... I don't get it. I think this has been the worst funk I have ever been in and wish I could just snap out of it already. Not only do I have this competition going on with my friends, I have signed up for several walks/runs that are all coming up very soon. The rate I'm going, I am going to be crawling across the finish lines. (if I even make it)

Knowing I have to make changes and quick, I have decided to give up starch for Lent. I originally wanted to give up 30 lbs for Lent but I remembered it wasn't that easy. Who knows, giving up starch might give me that extra boost to drop the weight in the next 40 days. Ugh, this is going to be hard but I know I need to do it.

I'm going to miss you Mr. Potato :(

BIG plans for the future

Wow! It has been ages since I have last blog and I have to admit I feel horrible about it. Not only because I have left you all hanging but I have completely fell off the wagon. I have no good excuse, I guess I could say I I have been overly busy at work (which I have) but really.... there is always time to eat right (which I haven't) and I may not have an hour to work out but I'm sure I could have squeezed in 15 mins here and there. Bottom line..... I have been a badddd badddd girl. ;)

So what am I doing currently? I know what I am not doing so have taken steps to get back into the swing of things. I have a Mud Run 5k coming up in April and the another 5k in May and last but oh certainly not least a 26 mile walk in July. I bet your saying I'm nuts. How do I go from falling off the wagon to planning to participate in a marathon in less than 150 days...hell I don't have the answer to that but I have already committed and I am in it to the end.

Speaking about being In It To The End .... The marathon I have signed up for is actually for a great cause, I will be walking in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Another great thing is I won't be in this alone, my entire office has signed up for it and we will be doing it as a team. I'm really pumped! It's going to held in San Francisco and we will be walking this distance over a weekend and will be even camping out on the streets.

In addition to the walk we are also fundraising for this event as well. We have each committed to raise a minimum of $1,800.00 so we make participate in this walk. All proceeds will go to the research for finding a cure or prevention for this awful disease. Which leads me to my next topic  --- Donation

I know I have been a horrible blogger but with so many events coming up I have to become focused because being apart of this is extremely important to me. Not only for my own health but for the support of others who are or know someone that is fighting or fought this battle against cancer. Any donations made are extremely appreciated ---even if its only a dollar it ALL HELPS.  If you are interested in donating please click on the logo below or if you have any questions feel free to ask, as I am more than happy to answer. :)
