DIY Fit like a Dinosaur Challenge Entry Card
Thursday, May 03, 2012
My Challenge Name: Fit like a dinosaur
My Starting Weight: 270.6
Four Other things I will be measuring during this challenge & their current stats:
1. Body Measurements
2. Fitting into my smaller jeans
3. 5K time
4. Push up max (upper body) and wall sit time (lower body)
If I am going to be 100% honest with myself, the reason I am doing this challenge is because:
I need to train for my second Warrior Dash in September. I’m also tired of my clothes not fitting as well as they did a few months ago.
I feel like the reason that I have not been progressing as well as I hoped I would be is because:
I’m not committed and I make excuses. I can’t get in the routine
This time, I commit to finishing my challenge because I know that:
I will be better, stronger, and happier for it. And I know if I don’t rock the Warrior Dash this year better than last year I’ll be very disappointed in myself.
I'm scared of:
Failing again. That I’ll never meet my goal. That I am unable to commit to anything.
I want to:
Finally feel strong, feel like I can do anything, feel worthwhile.
But I have faith in:
That I can do anything and have a strong desire to enjoy my body while it’s still young, God, who wants me to be healthy and happy and Christ who strengthens me in my efforts.
And THIS TIME, I will NOT quit, because THIS TIME: I will commit myself for only 6 weeks, knowing very well that I will get awesome results in this time and want more.
My top five non-health related motivations right now are:
1. Enjoying my body while it’s still young (and hasn’t had to make a baby yet).
2. Wearing a single digit size, which I’ve never worn in my whole adult life (always been a 14 or above)
3. Completing the Warrior Dash in Old Monroe, MO in under 50 minutes
4. Feeling sexy for my husband.
5. To run faster.
The best way to motivate me is to:
Remind me that it will be worth it. I can be fast, I can be strong, I can be healthy if I just try harder!
The best way I can motivate myself is to:
The feel of my clothes getting bigger. It doesn’t feel real until I feel it in my clothes.
My name is Sarah and I will complete C25K and try out the Paleo diet for these 6 weeks to see if it works for me. Six weeks of less carbs can’t hurt.
