100 Day Challenge!

I, Adorable Wife, have joined another challenge. They are just floating out there like crazy! This one is the 100 Day Challenge brought to us by the slave driving mind of Courtney @ Run, Courtney, Run. It is running from Sept 23rd to Dec 1st, and I just barely slipped in, it was a close one! Basically, it is all about setting goals for yourself and then reporting back on them. We can all encourage each other and then yell at one another when we slack. Well, yay, I like to yell so this sounds great! Here are my goals...

  • finish first tri in under 1:45
  • tighten core and strengthen arms with 10 min trainer
  • lose 10 lbs
  • spend 15-20 min a day with son doing nothing therapy related, just fun! 
  • Get 5k under 30 min (maybe even 27)

So I guess, well I suppose, I probably should post my starting weight so I can report and actually know if I am losing any, so let me go weigh myself real quick (don't worry you won't even know I'm gone.) Ok, drumroll...and the magic number is 136! We'll see if I have the ten pounds to lose (I'm 5'6) but I need to at least be tightening up. I did do my ab workout today, so that goal is going well so far! Only 2 and half weeks to the tri and my nerves are taking over. I am limping around today because of my butt (sciatic) and hip so I really hope with ice and advil I can run again soon! We played games with Peyton last night, his choice was Candy Land shapes, and we will see what he wants to do tonight but he scraped his knees pretty bad leaving therapy today (again) and isn't in a good mood so I don't know if he'll be up for much.  But hopefully with all this I can end up looking more like this...


And less like this...

I'm glad to have something else out there to push me and get my butt into gear. And you all need to get your butts into gear and enter our first giveaway if you haven't already. It's super simple, I mean who doesn't like free money! Just click here and make me happy! Thank you!

Probably my butt, it's pretty big! And yes I would love a red cape, or any color would do. Imagine that flowing behind me on the bike!

You are totally going to be like wonderwoman! Wait...you already pretty much are! I agree with Cynthia...you don't have 10lbs. to lose!

I'm the one who had the fat butt comment, not you :) Seriously, you look awesome but I'm here for you.

It's a great idea to post some goals. I should do it too.

Slave driving mind! Haha never heard that one before, I like it! Glad you are joining in on the challenge. It should be fun. Welcome!

Haha, like being called out huh? I had to say something because you mentioned all your challenges. Yeah, finding somewhere to swim sucks sometimes. Yeah, you probably would smoke me! Someone needs to have a virtual DUATHLON, then you would sooo be in!
