So this morning I rolled out of my warm bed, did my potty thing and shed my artic jammies to weigh in. Usually I just sort of glare at the scale and think hateful thoughts. Today I wanted to kiss the white hunk of metal. Because she gave me a gift.
180 pounds!!!! This means I can purchase my next incentive, a stand mixer! Which is awesome because I am going to participate in the MS Mud Run in May.
My readers probably know that I started this journey in May of last year, See here I was 232 pounds and needed to make some changes. So this May, I am hoping to be close to my 160 goal and be in excellent shape so I can run a 10K with military style obstacles. I have committed myself to doing it and will be registering next week when our tax money comes back. I have decided to join a team called Muck You with a new friend who is wonderfully supportive and have asked my little bro to consider doing it as well.
The reason my stand mixer is going to help with this, (I know you were probably confused) is that to fund raise the 100.00 minimum donation I am going to be hosting a "10.00 You Call It Bake Sale" Anyone who donates 10.00 to my Team for this race will be able to choose a delicious baked good made by me. A pan of brownies, batch of cookies or decorated cake for instance. I'm hoping this goes over well because I -love- to bake and this will let me bake, give the goodies away, not gain weight from baked goods, raise money for charity, and take part in this immense and exciting challenge. (I hope lots of people want decorated cakes or cupcakes because I want to make my homemade butter cream in my new mixer)
Do you think my bake sale is a good idea? I figured I could just ask for cash but this way I'm giving them something for their money, and it's delicious. Everybody wins.
