I joined in on the fun! I found out about the 20/20 on Natalie's blog. I thought it would be the perfect thing for me to do to continue to exercise and get some meal ideas. I email Ashlee and she let me in, just under the wire! YAY! Although, I did have to weigh myself and I loathe and detest scales! I haven't owned one since I moved out of my parent's house. The ONLY reason we have one in the house right now is because it belongs to my roommate and it's in her bathroom, which I never go in. So, I had a date with her scale the other day. I took it off the shelf and stood in front of it. We did our little dance before I stepped on it. I did threaten that if it went up TOO high, I WOULD toss it through the window. Lucky for it, I didn't have to follow through. I probably should have weight myself when I STARTED a month ago, but I went with measuring instead. It seemed less painful to see a "38" rather then a 3rd number somewhere in there.
Anyway, I stepped on that scale and the needle went to 140. Not too bad since the LAST time I weight myself was BEFORE Zilla was born and I was 150. I know I was weighed while I was pregnant with him, but I blocked that out. No memory of that happening, which is A-OK with me! There is NO way in hell I'm brave enough to post a before and after pic, so ya'll can use your imaginations. If you're demented enough to do so. MAYBE an after pic...MAYBE. Doubtful, though.
I have a buddy group, too. Those ladies are awesome! *waves* Although they are runners. Like they run 5K's and 3K's and all have personal records and then there's me...I run. I enjoy my runs, but I'm not even CLOSE to running a 3K let alone a 5K. The thought kind of scares me. I'd like to, I really would. I would love to be able to lace of my beloved PINK NB's and run a 5K, but right now I can't see me doing that. So I'll stick to my cardio and once we get our treadmill, I'll start training for a couch to 5K program.
I do love my cardio program though. I may have a bit if a crush on Bob Harper. He's funny, works me out without the need to stab him in the throat, and I can feel the workout getting my body stronger. All pluses! I don't know if my body will allow me to lose 20 pounds, but at the end of 20 weeks I KNOW I will have healthier habits and that is very important.
Good luck to me and the other ladies in my buddy group!
