So I’m running a little behind here on the challenges, seeing as it is January 11th and I am just now posting my challenge for January. This month I went with something relatively straightforward: Lose 15 pounds.
I chose this for a few reasons. First, I did particularly horrid this holiday season watching what I ate, and have paid the price both in pounds gained and tighter clothes. Second, if I seriously want to make it through the triathlon, I need to start serious training in February. I can say from personal experience that even 10 pounds can make a world of difference when working out. Why 15? I figured that was a relatively reasonable number for a month, and it would put me just below where I was at for most of last year.
Anyways, that’s it, lose 15 pounds in January, look for an update at the end of the month to see if I made it!
