Motivational Monday #3

Holy moly is this a new blog post…you betcha!
So I know I have been gone for some time but its been a
crazy last couple of months. The month of July was one of the toughest/worst
months I think I have ever had. Then august rolled around and I was very happy
about that because two major things happened that month. It was my birthday and
I GOT ENGAGED! I still cant believe it at times but the ring has stopped
feeling weird on my finger…so we’re getting somewhere. No wedding details have
been set yet as Bill and I are working on some other decisions at the moment.
But don’t fret, we’ll get going once we can!
So even though Monday is coming to a close, I still wanted
to get Motivational Monday out there. So because the last couple of months have
been such a whirl-wind I have put on quite a few pounds. And I am not
comfortable with myself anymore and how NONE of my clothes fit anymore—there I
said it! AAhhh I just feels good to put that out there!!
But with that being said I really didn’t have any motivation
to get going so I decided to find some! As I was searching on Bloglovin (a
website that puts a whole bunch of blog on one site and you can follow who you
want. Then you can look at people’s blog posts as they are updated all at once
instead of going to each blog) and came across one of the blogs I follow: http://www.mamalaughlin.com/ and she
was doing a Diet Bet.
Blog I saw the challenge on
Now I had no idea what this was until I clicked on it. To
get the basics out there you submit a certain amount of money to a pot and
commit to losing 4% of your body weight in a month. Then if you “win” (lose 4%
of your body weight) you split the pot with the other winners of the bet. They
have a verification system as well to make sure that people are who they really
are and they aren’t cheating.

So long story longer, I decided that this was the challenge
that I needed. I mean I put money into it and now I had a good goal to achieve.
Because this motivated me, I challenged two of my good friends, Amy and Leah,
to do it as well—AND they agreed! EEkk so this is going to be even more
motivation to stay on track with each other! So it starts tomorrow and I
submitted my weigh in this morning.

I cant wait to take this challenge with the girls and
myself. Check back in every week to see my progress!!
