Today I received my testing date for a certain awesome agency run by the fed that investigates stuff. Which means, I really need to jump start my diet/work-out regimen so I can pass the fitness test. If I'm not going to end up working there, I want it to either be my choice, or just the fact they don't need my particular skill set (what is that particular skill set, you ask? Good question!). I don't want it to be because I'm too fat and out of shape. That would just suck.
So, today starts my epic journey of rapid weight loss/getting totally buff. I'm back on Weight Watchers, drinking gallons of water, and spending most of my day in the bathroom, and I will be working out every day for a minimum of 1 hour of aerobics, in between bathroom breaks. I will need to add in weight training soon as I figure it all out. Later, I will likely add on a Saturday morning pilates class. In 10 weeks, I want to have lost 20 pounds and be able to meet the agency's minimum fitness requirements. Our city is having a half-marathon the end of March, so I would like to be able to do that, even just mostly walking.
Since I'm not going to Weight Watchers meetings, I'll keep a running tab on here of my stats for each week, in an effort to shame myself into compliance. For Lent, I'm giving up my all of my favorite things: pizza, burgers, fries, and "excess bread" (i.e. bread sticks, rolls, etc.).
Is it possible to be in great shape when living such a sedentary lifestyle? I guess we'll find out!
