90 Day Challenge
When I got pregnant with Seamus, I was in a size 10 - the smallest I have ever been in my entire life. Then I slowly sank back into bad habits again and now I'm back in a size 18. I'm not proud of that one bit. It's embarrassing to be the inspiring fat friend who loses weight only to gain it all (or close to all) back again. I certainly feel like I let a lot of people down (including myself).
I told myself when we quit smoking this last (Last) time, I cannot start again just for the sake of not wanting to have to quit again. It's not an easy thing to do. Similarly, losing weight sucks and I never want to do it again. And when I say sucks, I mean it is really fucking hard to do. It's physically and mentally exhausting.
Patrick, my brother, sister-in-law and I decided to do the ViSalus 90-Day Challenge with Challenge Fitness out of Charlevoix. Dean works with each group or individual on a transformation program (I think its called The Meltdown).
I am committed to 90-days of workouts and changing my eating around. I couldn't be more thrilled to have a group of awesome people supporting me and pushing through the pain at the same time. Because....it is day 3 of the gym and I literally cannot walk. I talked them into it because I couldn't do this without them.
