Drop Dead Gorgeous by December Week #2

Posted Sep 05 2010 11:39am

Drop Dead Gorgeous by December started out as a Twitter joke but has become so much more.

It has become a self-empowering movement.
It has become a supportive group.
It has become a motivational network.

It has made me understand that I can accomplish so much more when I realize I’m not alone.

Every single person participating in Drop Dead Gorgeous by December makes a conscious effort to better his or her life each and every day.

Some days are harder than others, but in the long-run, every single person emerges victorious, feeling accomplished and proud. It is not pride that comes from how much weight they’ve lost, how far they’ve ran, how many miles they’ve biked. It is pride that comes from knowing just how much hard work and effort went into achieving those goals.

 

How does Drop Dead Gorgeous by December work?

You can join at any time.

If you missed this week, not to worry! Send me your weekly report by next Sunday. However, once you commit to Drop Dead Gorgeous, you are in for life (at least until December).

You are required to send me:

1. A photo of yourself with a self-motivational note.
2. Posting your weight is completely optional.
3. At least one but no more than five long-term goals.
4. One brag for the week.
5. One thing to improve upon for next week.

We are all in this self-empowerment movement together.

Prepare to be inspired.

finish!! I am proud of myself for sticking with it. It will give me more money and more opportunities in my future.

ONE brag for the week: That I really tried my best to do all the really tough exotic push-ups in the P90X workout Chest, Shoulders & Triceps – the pike presses, floor flies, one-arm push-ups, and clap push-ups. I brought it!

ONE thing to improve upon for next week: Making sure I eat enough calories at the right times. Last Friday, I had a lunch that was too small, and the result was that even with my afternoon Shakeology as a snack my blood sugar was low and I was exhausted when I came home to work out. The result was going out for Pad Thai and skipping my workout, because my husband had equally low blood sugar and wanted pizza. I don’t like eating pizza much so I negotiated. I guess the upside is that it was a recovery week and I did get all my runs in.

I’ve set a personal goal to stay on campus from 9 to 5 every day, and to not bring any work home. I made it through a week of this, and I really love the feeling of coming home and not worrying about work!

ONE thing to improve upon for next week: Walking more. Now that I’m back to work, it’s so easy to come home and think “Dinner. Relax. Bed.” Walking doesn’t take much time and I always feel so great during/after it. Plus, I need to enjoy the nice weather here in Chicago while it lasts!

I apologize for taking so long to get this post up!

I’m currently working on a form for all participants to fill out. That way, every entry will be standardized and all the information ready for copying and pasting. Will save me a ton of time.

For Week 3, continue to send me your post information via email to halfofjess [at] gmail.com .

Thanks to everybody for being patient and for being drop dead gorgeous!
