How "The Accidental Fat Chick" Hatched...

Welcome to The Accidental Fat Chick's new online home!

During the summer 0f 2008, I woke up one morning with a drive to live a healthy lifestyle. Since then, I've made many changes and lost nearly 50 pounds. Many of my friends and family members have come to me, asking about what I'm doing & how I'm doing it. While I certainly would never claim to be an expert, I'm happy to share what I've learned along the way.

So after careful thought... "The Accidental Fat Chick" has hatched... with the hope of helping at least one person and to be the accountability I need to finish what I started. :)

Thank you for visiting!!

Calling All Cheerleaders

At the beginning of the month Mary Fran appointed herself my personal cheerleader for finishing the Around the World Challenge. She is an awesome cheerleader & leaves me encouraging comments every day!

There are only 13 days left in the Challenge & I am STRESSED about being able to finish. I have soooooo much left to get done - 53 circuit sets, 167 core sets, 288 free weight sets, 23.3 miles on elliptical, 21.5 miles on bike, 33.4 miles on treadmill and 1.155 floors on the StairMaster. I have to finish this... failure is NOT an option!!!

Working under pressure is my forte... but really this is extreme - even for me. So... I NEED all the cheerleaders I can assemble. No joke - I need as many people as possible to keep me going... to comment, email, text - whatever... so there's a stream of motivation when I look at my phone out of boredom as I'm spending endless time on the treadmill & other instruments of torture, lol. If I'm being whiny & needy, so be it... but this "accidental fat chick" needs HELP & LOTS of it!

Will you be my cheerleader???

I'm not going to give a cheer like Chris but what you have in front of you is a load of work that can be done.

Do the work because you want too though and not because you have too. enjoy yourself.

Wishful Shrinking said...

I see all that you have accomplished so far and I know you can do it!

MaryFran said...

Give yourself a pat on the back for accepting that you need the extra motivation AND asking for it!

I agree with making a plan. I started to look at the numbers looking for a clear and concise plan. My first instinct was to get the stuff that you are SOOO close to finishing out of the way so that you can focus on the other stuff. But that may not work for you...maybe you need to keep that as your fall back for that last day. Whatever, figure out how you are going to attack during the next 13 days and go with it!!!

YOU ROCK!!!! You CAN do it!
