A 6-Week Kick Start Challenge in The 2012!!!

by | Jan 3, 2012 | Sponsored | 6 comments

Alrighty friends! I am joining Amanda and Stephanie, my 2 of my lovely co-iVoices in the Kick Start Your Weight Loss Challenge over on iVillage. I am getting my kick-start on! And feeling a wee-bit winded…

Wanna commiserate and/or join me? It’s 6 short weeks….

We can do anything for 6 weeks!

Alls ya gotta do is dance your cursor right on over to the  iVillage here to sign up to get the daily email assignments.

I see you hesitating.

Hesitation is for squirrels that get hit by cars… c’mon, let’s kick-start togethah!

Here, look… these are some tools I am using in conjunction with the assignments to help me right on along:

  • A notebook. I need a pen and paper place. Light bulb moments and simple assignment tasks live here.
  • I track calories using the Lose It! app and I’ve registered with the site. It’s AWESOME. I am HOOKED.
  • I use Daily Mile to log my exercise.
  • and I use the Mindbloom iPhone app to remind me to drink water and focus.

I am not crossing every T and dotting every I. I am integrating where I am able…

I find the pressure to go about something like this with perfection causes certain failure for me. I figure since I was not being mindful of most things that passed my lips, and in the last 2-6 months I have hardly tied on my running shoes – anything mindful I do today is better than the many mindless yesterdays before her.

let's do this

FURTHERMORE… if I fail in one choice, I do not let that one thing sabotage my entire day’s effort. So I ate 2 mozzerella sticks. It doesn’t mean I should buddy-up with the plate of nachos since I kinda already blew it.

And exercise… my achilles heel right now. Not literally, to be clear… Making time to exercise is very difficult. Somedays 10 minutes worth of jumping jacks, sit-ups, leg lifts and pushups may be the very only bit I can manage. Sure, it wasn’t 20, 30 or 40 minutes of intense cardio, but it is still better that 10 minutes on the couch. Plus, in that 10 minutes you can burn most of the cream and sugar you put in your coffee that morning. And you know what that means…. MORE COFFEE!!!

*Disclosure: iVillage compensates me for my video work. Views, experiences with this program, dedication, invitation to commiserate, will-power and grumbling tummy at night because I refuse to eat after 7 are all mine. Alllllllll mine.
