I have never signed up for a challenge like this before and it took me a couple of days to decide whether I wanted to or not...But I figured what the hell...the only thing I have to lose is (hopefully) pounds and inches! Soooo here goes my introduction I guess (feel free to skip this if you know me, this is for any new followers I get or have gotten recently that don't "know" me yet!)
My name is Taryn, I'm a 25 year old, registered nurse at a long term care facility, from a small town in south eastern British Columbia. I'm fat...there's no other way to put that I guess. My weekly weigh in will be tomorrow (completely by accident that my weigh in happened to land on New Years Day). I'm fully expecting to see a gain tomorrow as I've eaten like CRAP and have not worked out this week...awful I know, but I blame work! We've had a rocky and emotional past couple weeks where we've had a few...read 6...of our beloved residents pass away, a few who are actively passing away and just last night I sent one of our residents to hospital after a fall and she has broken her hip...and at 89 years old, they don't usually recover from that. I know that these are excuses and I need to make time to focus on myself, so that's what I think this challenge will help me do. I will be starting the new year out right.
I don't have twitter, nor do I link my personal facebook to my blog very often, so I'm going to leave that part out.
OK on to the required topics...
My NSV - To finish my C25K program
Exercise - To exercise at least 4 days per week. This will include a combo of C25K workouts, Zumba, walking and my new ifit chips for my treadmill.
Nutrition - To track my food intake in a food journal and bump up my H20 intake (and to not skip breakfast because I'm too busy!)
I will post my starting weight tomorrow and my goal weight will to be 250lbs which will be approximately 40lbs down in 3 months (ambitious I know but shoot for the sky I say!)
So that's me...I hope to get to know all of you and that we are all successful this next few months!!! Here we go!
