DietBet sign-up

Today I signed up for the DietBet challenge through the Shrinking Jeans site. The goal is to lose 4% of your body weight in 28 days. You donate $25 and at the end everyone that reaches their goal gets a piece of the pot. Why not, another challenge to keep me focused. I have a total of 6.5 lbs to lose. I do so much better when there is a challenge šŸ™‚

Weather here has been crappy so getting outside has been a challenge. This past weekend we spent 3/4 of the time in a vehicle as John and I had to go to a cattle sale for work. It was an awesome weekend just hard on the system when you are used to drinking water all the time (not so easy to do when you depend on highway rest stops for washrooms), and no time to get in any exercise or even stretches. We did eat well while we were away which I am very happy about with the exception of WAY TOO much coffee, which lead to the feeling of dehydration. I was so happy to get home on Sunday and made a great big green smoothie for everyone and chugged a couple litres of water.

Back on the elliptical last night, boy did it feel good. It is not raining here today so I am planning to get outside for a run. I had planned to go out yesterday even in the rain, however it started to rain really hard and just was not up to getting soaked right through (still have to purchase some running rain gear). I think I will seriously consider getting a treadmill this year. We are also thinking of getting a bike trainer. I think that is what they are called, the things that attach to a regular bike to make it stationary. We purchased new bikes last year for the family and really want to put them to good use this year.

Well let the challenge begin and say goodbye to 6.5 lbs.
