Anniversary Challenge: Day 1/25

Now that my high school reunion is over with, I’m ready for my next challenge. I really like to challenge myself. It helps me to stay on track and it pushes me to reach further than I thought possible. My next challenge is going to have the goal date of my two year wedding anniversary, September 19, 2011. This date is about 25 days away. The mantra for this challenge is going to be one of my favorite quotes: “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.” ~ Brian Littrell. The goal weight that I have chosen is the reason behind my challenge mantra. I’m currently at 241 lbs and I want to lose 10 pounds by my anniversary, bringing me to 231 lbs on September 19th! I know that this is a big expectation, hence the mantra!

The goal weight isn’t the only goal in this challenge. I am also going to give myself three other goals to shoot for throughout the next 25 days:

1. Daily Blogging: Even if I don’t have much of anything to say, I have to admit that daily blogging holds me accountable throughout a challenge!

2. Weekly weigh-ins: Although I tend to weigh myself daily, I am challenging myself to continue with posting my weigh-in’s each Sunday throughout this challenge.

3. Weekly Dinner Planning: This not only helps me nutritionally, but it also helps me financially! It is always easier to save money when I go grocery shopping with a list.

Considering that I am starting this challenge in the middle of the week, I will post my dinner plans for the remainder of it.

Dinner Plans: 8/24 – 8/28

Wednesday: Grilled Chicken with Potatoes
Thursday: Shrimp with Rice and Broccoli
Friday: Steaks with Baked Beans
Saturday: Homemade Pizza
Sunday: Pineapple Pork with Rice

I’ll also be using the following stats for each week:

Starting Weight: 241 lbs
Goal Weight: 231 lbs
Current Weight: 241 lbs
Total Loss: 0 lbs

Anniversary challenge starts.... now!
