Today I am beginning the 30-day squat challenge (good lord my ass hurts just thinking about that!). In addition, I want to lose 10 lbs in a month, 8 lbs would be satisfactory. I have a pair of black lace hot pants I want to wear for a New Years Eve event. The hot pants are a size 7 and looked great on me one year ago. Sad to say, at present, I can get into the pants but I cannot fully zip them. I have too much hips and ass...lol.

Ten pounds weight loss may seem a little ambitious, it is but I am confident that I can lose 8 lbs. Three to four pounds of this weight is puffy water weight gained in the last two weeks due to my diet. Ugh! Thanksgiving food is yummy but so much of is it completely different from my regular diet. The Thanksgiving food is higher in fat, sugar, and sodium. A week before Thanksgiving I was again eating a lot at my favorite Asian bistro (East Moon Asian Bistro, Bowie, Md); the food tends to have a lot of sodium in the sauces. The food is not salty but if you eat it 3 - 4 times a week the sodium count is high and it affects me--swelling. I can tackle the swelling issue hard by doing the Dr. Oz 48-hr. Weekend Cleanse. I have done it 3 times before and it works for me. In addition, I regularly exercise but I plan on increasing the amount of exercise in order to achieve my weight loss goal: more running, more dancing, circuit training to tighten and build muscle. Most importantly, as of today I have returned to my regular good diet.
Another blogger who has done the #30daysquatchallenge encouraged me to take before photos and at the end of the 30 days take another photo for comparison. Great idea! Yes, I will do this. NO! I will not post the photos.
Wish me success!
