My Weight Loss Plan

Recently a fellow blogger, Ash Is Fit, started a new weight loss initiative called 20/20 and invited others to join her. I definitely need to lose the 20 lbs so I thought I'd try it out. Unfortunately I have an injured hamstring so this may prove a little harder since I can't run. So here's my plan:

Lose 20 lbs in 20 weeks with a goal of running a 10K by the time I've lost it. I tend to fall off the wagon a lot when trying to lose weight but this one I really want to stick to.

She also encourages us to give ourselves a reward for making progress. So for my reward, at the first 10 lbs, I will treat myself to a day kayak trip. I love kayaking but don't go enough so it won't only be exercising but it will be fun too.
When I hit 20 lbs. I will buy a new J. Crew tankini, my absolute favorite bathing suits but they are pretty expensive.

Wish me luck! I hope to succeed and look good by August.

Way to go Jen! I'm doing Ash's 20/20 challenge too. I haven't posted my goals yet, but I hope to later tonight.

Hang in there with running - I'm sure you'll be doing that 10k in no time!
