BETTER OFF RED FIT CLUB
From the blog that brought you the Reds Cap Club, the BOR Reds State Challenge and Magic Reds Shoelaces comes another fan-friendly, Burt BobbleRed-endorsed group that could potentially change your life!
Introducing the Better Off Red Fit Club!
Less than two years ago, I was looking pretty decent at 158 pounds. I felt good about myself and my confidence was on the positive side, but most importantly – I was living a healthy lifestyle. Then suddenly, as it so often does, life threw a nasty curveball and I struck out.
No need to go into details, because in the coming weeks/months, I’m going to share with you folks way more than with which I already feel (un)comfortable, beginning with the fact that at 10 a.m. today, I weighed in at 197 pounds.
I’m ready to get my old self back but I’m going to need your help. Starting Monday, I’m going to document my quest to lose 35 pounds by February 1, 2011…warts and all.
What does this have to do with you? Well, if I can show you that I can do it (and I AM going to do it), then hopefully, it will show you that YOU too can do anything you put your mind to – whether it’s losing weight, leading a healthy lifestyle or even just being happy and comfortable with yourself.
I encourage you to join me in the BOR Fit Club. You will not be asked how much you weigh, I will not ask for any “before” photos of you in your underwear, I don’t even want to know how much weight you want to lose. That’s up to you.
What I do want from you folks, is to hear about how you’re going about leading a healthy lifestyle. Tell me what you’re doing to change your life and how you’re becoming more active. I want your healthy recipes and tips. Tell me how many miles you walked or ran, how much time you spent on the treadmill or in the gym. I want to hear about how you stopped drinking soda, beer and cut down on the fast food. Anything big or small that is making you feel better and perhaps helping you shed a few pounds, I want to hear about it. If you lost 2 pounds last week, tell me.
If I’m putting myself out there, hopefully it will motivate you to join me. They say there’s “power in numbers”, so let’s team up! Maybe by the time Spring Training rolls around, you’ll be looking pretty good in your new BOR t-shirt….
Who’s with me? Feel free to leave your positive comments (only) below and you can always email me your story/photos/recipes/etc. at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll also be Tweeting about this adventure at Twitter.com/Jamieblog…follow me and keep an eye out for the hashtag #BORFitclub.
Lastly, what I won’t tolerate are any immature, condescending, negative comments regarding this mission. If I see any such in the comments section, I will delete them. If I see any on Twitter, I will block you. This is something that requires hard work and preserverence. It’ll be tough enough, so please don’t drag us down with you.
So get all of your bad habits out of the way this weekend, if you need to. Beginning Monday, we have work to do!!
