Okay, so I've been saying this for about as long as I can remember....."If I can just lose 10 lbs. I'll be happy". I'm not sure why 10 lbs. is the magic number, but it is. I bet I am not the only one that says stuff like this. I have to image that most women have some magic number that they are always striving for. Geez, just last month, I told my husband that I REALLY needed to lose 10lbs......very matter of fact like. His response, "WHY?". You see, I am not over weight, by any means. This time around I had an excuse.
I'm training for another marathon and I've convinced myself that the less I weigh, the less I will stress my legs out as they carry me thru 26.2 miles. Good excuse right! Well logically it is, but, okay, here is the problem......I managed to gain about 5 lbs. over the holiday. Way to buy into your logic Cyndi! Yeah....I have this wonderful way listing things I want to accomplish but never seeing them thru.
With less than 2 weeks to the marathon, it is ridiculous to think that I can still drop 10 lbs. safely, so I am not going to try. Or am I? Okay no, but as of January 13th, I am taking on a challenge with some of my co-workers. My company is hosting a "Biggest Loser" competition. I've joined every year they've offered it, but guess what, I usually get bored about 3 weeks in and stop reporting and trying. One of my goals this year is to "see things thru", so I joined the competition again, and with the help of my friends here at work, hopefully I will complete the challenge, enjoy some friendly competition, and....who knows, maybe I will actually lose that 10 lbs.!
