I just embraced my "alternachick" side, reclaiming it from the "mommy" I've become by dying my hair back to my unnatural but much loved black as the black hole black. I did my 7 year old sons hair too, since he was begging for it. I havn't felt this good in years. I feel like me again...lol! Now, i just need to shift this extra mommy weight and I'll be all me all the time.
If anyone is up for a challenge, which I am, always, I wanted to throw one out there. I need a little motivation to get my butt to the gym for cardio. I have no problem getting there for my zumba class, but the other two days (my goal is four days a week) the thought of the elliptical, treadmill and recumbent bike makes me want to take a shot of vodka and a nap.
Now, I'm not proposing that everybody do cardio 4X a week, you can set your own goal there, but I thought that maybe we could assign a point system.
How long will it run you ask? How about a solid 90 days starting tomorrow, 10.01.09. Since the challenge starts on a Thursday the weeks will be tracked Thur-Wed.
What is the incentive? A hawt bod of course!
The point system:
5 points for each week you meet your excercise goals.
1 additional point for exceeding your weekly goal (as stated below in Metal Chicks post).
1 additional point awarded per week if, in that week, you participated in a walk/run or race for a charitable cause.
Lose a point for skipping a workout (we are, of course, using the honor system so honesty is the LAW...lol).
Does this sound fun to anybody? I hope so, or I'll feel quite sheepish for throwing myself out there.
