Remember when I said that I’m sorta-kinda-not-really satisfied with my weight? Like, I’m a “normal” body weight, but if I lost 10 pounds I’d be uber-happy?
Well, this blog called Newlyweds on a Budget just announced a 10 pound challenge. The idea is that a bunch of bloggers all try to lose 10 pounds over the span of 12 weeks. We support each other and encourage each other. There’s even a cash prize drawing at the end.
That sounds like GOLD! Encouragement is EXACTLY what I need to help me put down that cupcake … seriously, PUT DOWN the cupcake …
So I’m entering the 10 pound challenge. “Hello, fellow challengers!”
Allow me to introduce myself:
I’m an American woman in her late 20’s writing anonymously under the pseudonym Kennedi Rose. (Unfortunately, my parents were not hip enough to give me a beautiful name like that). I want to be as open and honest as possible, so I’m putting it out there — upfront — that “Kennedi” is a pseudonym. And, like Batman, I’m not going to reveal my true identity. But I promise I’m American, female, late 20’s. Read more about me here.
I write about beauty on a budget — and I discuss both outer beauty (makeup, hair, skin care) and inner beauty (health, fitness, nutrition).
Here are common excuses for not working out. Avoid saying these!
Here are some recipes for my favorite low-fat, low-carb foods:
Three Best Low-Carb Vegetarian Dishes
Frozen Yogurt (okay, this is not a recipe. It’s simply a post about the awesomeness of frozen yogurt).
Please, please read this post to understand The Truth About Fats — this is why (I believe) you should NOT avoid “good” fats (and why “bad” fats are so bad).
And here’s an explanation of the Slow-Carb Diet, popularized by author Tim Ferriss.
Whew! Okay, that’s a pretty decent introduction! I’m honored to meet you all, and let’s lose 10 pounds!
Now seriously, Kennedi … put down that cupcake!
