Yogi Transformation-Day 1

Started a 3 month body Transformation contest today, Jan. 3rd 2013. Decided to document progress not only in regular before/after required contest photos, but also in yoga poses just for fun. My goal is to be able to show my “yogi” transformation in 1st Q 2013 in an album of yoga inversions. This is the only one I can do so far. I think it’s called a tripod. I’d better start brushing up on poses…and figuring out what I want to aim for in the next 12-13 weeks.
Hoping that by the end of this contest I will have a waist, LOL! And that I will have a couple of impressive poses to show off. So, we’ll see!



I’ll be overweight by Friday: the last day of the world!

Yep, with any luck I’ll finally weigh in as “Overweight” any day now. That’s a great thing because my current size falls on the “Obese” chart right now. Today’s Wednesday and I’m only about three pounds away! With the program I’m following…if I stick to it…I just might hit that magic number and not a moment too soon.
It could be tomorrow. Or it could be the next day. Which is Friday 12/21/12…scheduled to be the end of the world. According to the Mayan’s calendar & that awesome John Cusack movie, 2012, it could be a ground-breaking day.
I don’t believe for a second that it will really be the last day of the world, but I’m starting to believe that it could mark a big day for me anyway. I’ve been working on this (okay, off & on, LOL!) for awhile. And since we go right off the ol’ Mayan calendar Friday & embark on uncharted territory…I’m going to declare a mission to find my skinny side!
Since I’m really writing this blog for me, I’m going to reveal the numbers. (Plus don’t we all want to know the details?! Just don’t judge your numbers by reading mine. We’re all on our own journey.) At 5’2 a particular chart says I must be 163, or less, to not be obese. So my first “fit ambition” for 2013 is to get off & stay off of that ugly part of the chart. (I say ugly…because I view heart disease, diabetes, and so forth…undesirables that I don’t want to meet!)
I know my #’s tend to bounce around a bit & I might see a new #, then an old #, but eventually the new one sticks & the #’s move down from there. It’s a downward trend. And that’s good enough…working on reaching the lower to mid 160’s and hold it fairly well through Christmas. Then January go find a spot in the 150’s…that’s the cool plan.
I’d like to spend next year getting fit, and working my way down the overweight scale to the “normal” spot (136lbs.). Can I be normal? That’s yet to be seen. And if I could hit “normal”, just how normal can I get? Or will I want to get when I get there??? Don’t know.
One thing I do know… I AM ready to tackle the future, past this Friday, & see where it gets me, on this small part of my ambitious journey…
