So until this challenge is over I wont tell any one I personally know about my tumblr. This helps me keep it as a temporary private journal until then.
Anyways, the challenge is at my gym Xsports Fitness. It’s a 3month competition where who ever looses the most body fat. Men Vs Men and Women Vs Women. Body fat and weight are too different things. The hardest to loose of course is body fat. But, the intial prices are worth it.
3rd place is $2,000.
2nd is $3,000
and 1st place is $10,000.
Being now in the stage of college $10,000 can help out a great deal with my situations. Also, to be totally honest I’ve never in my life been more motivated to loose weight. But, something clicked between Nov. and Dec. of 2011 that just gave me focus. notice how I said initial prize because what you gain is so much more greater in value than just money (in my opinion). By compleating and succeding in this challenge I will be the healthiest I’ve been in my life. Therefore I will be happier, healthier and have a lot of information about nutrition health and fitness. The competition starts Feb.1st and it lasts until the end of April.
As I meditate on the conditioning I’ve been doing since mid December I realize this isn’t the only challenge of change I’m faced with. Mentally and emotionally I’m working on things as well. Mentally, I’m putting in a lot more effort in all aspects of my life while letting go of other negative thoughts that ruled my way of thinking for a long time. I realized that this situation I’m in wont get the best of me and I will have the upper hand in the end. Emotionally, I’m learning to let things go. To face things for what they were and to not give out my affections to someone who doesn’t really want them. I’m learning about myself in a much more deeper way than before. Realizing that from where I stand, I’ve come such a long way. Mistakes, problems and tough times; But there is still much more to come. If I got to where I was I’m sure I can keep on going.
So, this is my challenge. Change. Change coming from within as well as physical. I hope that this will open doors that were never open before and that maybe it can serve as motivation for anyone else out there who wants to face this challenge as well.
