90 Day Challenge: Day 1

It's been 2 years since I posted.  I have to be honest, I just spent 30 minutes just trying to log into this blog, so I'll cut to the chase -- I'm throwing caution to the wind and thrusting upon myself a 90 day challenge.

90 DAYS!

I actually leave for vacation in 89 days so that elusive 90th day will happen while I'm on vacation.


I literally decided about 45 minutes ago that I was doing this.  And here is why ...

I see I haven't logged in or blogged since 2015.  That's because I've done nothing but gain weight since 2013.  I could probably gives you lists of health problems and job problems and life problems that helped me along that path.  And you know what?  I've learned that they're always going to be there in some way, shape, or form, so I'm really tired of using that as an excuse.  The fact of the matter is that I haven't really felt good about how I've looked since 2013.  And it's been since 2009 since I've felt GREAT about the way I look.

And that's not good.

Is 90 days going to get me there?  No.  Since 2009, I've gained 60 pounds.  That's a lot.  Some of it I couldn't help and some of it I could.  So I'm going to get rid of it one pound at a time.  I'm doing the 90 thing just because I really like challenges. . . . . clearly.  And also because I'm going on vacation and have to wear a bathing suit ... ugh.

Here are there parameters:

1.  Workout 6 days out of 7
2.  Eat between 1400-1500 calories
3.  Eat as cleanly as possible
4.  Take measurements and pictures every 30 days

That's it.
