Today We Find Out Who Won!

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

My dojo Gabrieles Martial Arts hosted a "60 Day Fitness Challenge" that started on February 11th and ended on April 11th. The challenge was as follows 1. Push ups (the biggest increase) 2. 35 classes minimum 3. Weight Loss (the most pounds lost). I increased my push ups from 40 to 73. I think I took at least 70 classes and I lost 12lbs.

We find out tonight who won. There were many people who did well, but I believe that I am one of the frontrunners! I really, really, really hope I win, because not only would it be a great victory, but I would win $500! Oh, I forgot to mention the prize, huh? LOL! Now my wanting to win the money isn't just out of greed...it's for a reason. It will go into my "trip to Hawaii" fund.

I know...that sounds kind of selfish right? But, my best friend, Alyssa, the one that introduced me to the martial arts, my one true passion, is moving to Hawaii for three years. We are both married to Navy men and her hubby got orders to HI, so off to HI they go in June 2012. Now, I'm sure most of you know that tickets to HI cost a fortune, especially from the East Coast where we live. So that $500 will go a long way in helping us make it to HI to visit our closest friends. Not exactly altruistic, but in my eyes a worthy cause. emoticon

I really do hope I win, but even if I don't I am proud of myself for doing so well. I feel so much better with those pounds off of my body. I have also made leaps and bounds in my fitness level! It's crazy how much your body can change and do over an 8 week period if you are really giving it all you have! I wish the best to all of my fellow GMA contestants!

    So did you win, did you win?! I am also starting a weight loss challange thru my boot camp. Winer can take home $2,500 and 25 PB sessions if they win both contests. One is for PB memebers and one is open to all! I would be happy if I won the $500.00 and 25 PB sessions because it's about $19.00 a class! So worth it because I have seen amazing transformations. Well let me know! I start mine on Monday the 23rd!!!
