Three Day Green Smoothie Detox
Thirty Days of Thirty Day Shred
Monday, January 3rd through Wednesday, January 5th
Monday, January 3rd through Saturday, February 5th. (I don't exercise on Sundays, man.)
Umm, like all day
Every morning at 6:30AM (or later on Saturdays).
How in the World I'll Do It:
By blogging about it almost hourly
Having Hubby or #1 be my go-to people in case #5 wakes up early
Just. Doing. It.
To do it. That is all. I'm not trying to get to a certain number of weight. In fact, I'm tempted NOT to weigh myself the entire month. My goal will be to weigh myself the morning of January 3rd and then again on February 5th. And then try not to care about the outcome.
*Habitual exercising (like I used to) at least 5 days a week
*Eating raw foods 75% of the time
*Stop making excuses for not doing the exercise thing (the food thing I get. It ebbs and flows. I'll never get it perfect. But I'll keep trying withOUT beating myself up about it).

...am I setting myself up for failure for doing this in January? For starting a weight loss program when everyone else and their dog and it's fleas are starting a weight loss program? Am I going against the newest trend to NOT set New Year's Resolutions just because I never accomplish them and therefore I should just buck the system and HA! I stuck it to the man! ???
Nope. I'm gonna do it because I NEED TO DO IT. Failure, this month, is not an option for me. I may hit potholes, I may hit obstacles, I may hit enormous gluttonous-filled cream-of-a-carb. But I'm tired of talking about it without actually doing it. So, I'm going to do it. I'm going to try hard. I'm going to accomplish it. Why? Because I can do hard things.
P.S. If you'd like to do it with me, let me know here or through email. Trust me, dear reader, we've learned from all the failed (and successful!) weight loss attempts on this blog that doing it together really does make the motivation stronger. And you can do hard things, too.
