Some of the girls at the Y are in a weight loss challenge called the TerraFit 90 Day Challenge. They asked if I wanted in on it and explained what goes on. It’s kind of like a cross between The Biggest Loser and a Diet Bet. I’m not sure if you’re familiar with Diet Bet but a few of the bloggers that I follow have had Diet Bet Challenges in the past. I’ve never participated but they look like they work.
With the TerraFit Challenge you pay $25 to join your team. They give you a list of “good” foods and “bad” foods, workout schedule, supplement suggestions, workout DVDs to buy, etc. Basically it is everything you need to accomplish your weight loss goals. Every day before 9pm you log in to their site and log what you’ve eaten and if you’ve exercised. Every Monday you weigh in. You also take before pictures to compare with your after pictures when the challenge is finished. For the top losing teams there are cash prizes (those prizes depend upon the number of participants nationwide) and there are individual prizes, team prizes and best before and after picture prizes.
My personal goal for this challenge is 3olbs. I think that’s a pretty tall order but I also think I can do it.
Working out isn’t a problem for me. I enjoy it so much. My diet is what is going to be rough. I know I’m going to have to really plan ahead and really stay on top of it. I’m trying to find meal prep ideas online. There’s a lot of information so it takes a while to sift through it all.
Meal planning for me is always a challenge. I’ve tried it before and I can’t ever seem to get in a good routine with it. It’s always hard to do my meal and then do Rylan’s and Jason’s meals too. Now that I’ve signed up to do the challenge there isn’t any whining or excuses though. I have made a commitment and other people’s success (prizes) can be affected by my commitment.
There’s no turning back.
My feet are to the fire.
I feel better having said it publicly.
I will be updating on here every Monday about my weekly progress, how I’m feeling and what I think about the program as I’m doing it.
