Day 1

Today marks the first day of a few things for me. 

First, I am on my first day of a week long holiday. Still unclear as to what I will do this week because traveling in China during a national holiday is extremely expensive and crowded(you since there are millions and millions of people in this country) for now I am planning to head to Hong Kong later in the week to see Disneyland and do some shopping and site seeing. Lets hope that still happens! 

Second, I am starting a 90 day better eating and workout challenge with one of my awesome friends K over at Lost to Gain! We were doing our usual whining about how were gaining weight and need to exercise and we decided that January was a big month for us both and so we need to get the ball rolling. 

Why January you ask? 

Well...let me tell you! 
I have a big 4 week holiday break in Jan/Feb and I plan to hit some beaches and do as much traveling as my bank book will allow me. So that means two big things: lots of pictures and a swimsuit! I Nothing terrifies me more thats a lie...bugs, sharks, ghosts...ok but you get the idea. Her birthday is in January and she is coming to visit me so that is incentive for her too! 

So the plan: 

No crazy diet nonsense. Just better eating, trying to stick to 1200-1400 calorie diet and exercising at least 3-4 times a week. Checking in with each other and just offering support! 

My Goal: 30 pounds...we actually have the same goal 30 pounds + 90 days= success

Challenges we are sure to face: 
It does fall during the holidays which I am sure will be harder for her than me since I am not at home and Thanksgiving & Christmas are not celebrated here like they would be back home. I have trouble getting enough calories w/out eating junk. I eat 3 meals a day but don't have the time for snacks. and of course, the good old sweet tooth. So hard to resist junk food. 

Anyway, I wanted to share this for two reasons: 
1. Help us stay accountable 
2. Your welcome to join us! I will post once a week an update on how I am doing. I may post some photos occasionally of the progress too. 

This is one of my fave Pins from Pinterest: 

So this is my first post and the first day! I promise you my blog will in no way become all about fitness or an advertisement for my weight loss! wish me luck...I'm going to eventually come up with a fun link up button so if you want join in!
