I have been alive for 14362 days. In 246 days I will be 40 years old. Turning 30 I found as scary as hell. Turning 40 I realise if I am to live to 80, I will be halve way done with my life. Now THAT doesn’t seem that exciting.
Yet, I don’t have the same fear of growing older, as when I turned 30. I want to meet my 40th year as the best possible version of myself.
…..and with that I decided to extend an invitation to myself to loose the medication fat (vs baby fat, or I ate like a pig fat or…) over the next 12 weeks.
Many weeks ago, I threw the scale to a place I cannot reach. I had been having an awesome day. I felt great. Then I stepped on that bloody scale!
So, I will not be getting on the scale. Instead I would like to fit into my jeans I wore when we did the Whale Trail a few years back. There is the challenge for the next 83 days.
Food is not so much an issue for me, as what exercise is. So I decided on a reward system of km walked, hence reward is on exercise and not weight loss. Forcing me to do what is the most difficult for me and rewarding myself with something I l♡ve and really want.
My initial challenge to myself is to walk 25km. There is a certain piece of floral, butterfly, ivy type ink I would like to have done in purple and yellow up the side of my left leg. From my foot, up my thigh to my hip…. So after walking 25kg I will have my foot done…a small piece at a time as a reward to my commitment…. and so I hope to continue until I fit into those particular jeans.
I know how much I weighed when I last rocked those jeans, so it would be interesting to see how much I weigh when I get there this time. 🙂
After that I want to do another 12 week challenge with myself and I trust I will then be a great version of me….and ready to meet my 40th birthday.
So here we go again! Will you walk with me?
I wish you enough,
