10 in 10. Ready, set, GO!

A new little challenge for myself in an effort to get things moving again, literally. I’ve got a few events coming up in the next few weeks and I wanted to set a goal for myself to drop a few pounds before they arrive.

IMG_5533.JPGMy first goal: 10 pounds in 10 days, after that I’ll probably aim for another 10 over the next 20 days. For first, 10 in 10, then 20 in 30.

So starting out, yesterday I weighed in at 267.5, and already this morning I’m down 2.4 pounds!

The good part was it wasn’t terribly hard. I stuck to my diet a little better, decided for a workout I would run up the steps back to my apartment after dropping off some empty boxes and 1 day of paying attention to what I’m eating, as well as running up 28 flights of steps and I’m off to a good start. I’m about to make myself a morning protein shake, get some work done and then tonight run my 3rd 5k of the season… and hopefully beat my last time 39:58. It’s not the best time in the world, my ultimate goal will be to get a 5k done in under 30 minutes, but it’s a starting point and I’ll keep going from there!
