In December I applied to be an ambassador for Omron Fitness through Mamavation. Omron Fitness was selecting 25 bloggers to participate in their #iHeartOmron Fitness Challenge. I wasn’t sure if I would be selected. Turns out there were almost 600 applicants, but this last Friday I found out that I was chosen to do the challenge! I am very excited to participate in this. I have gained a lot of weight over the past year and a half. Well most of the weight I want off was gained in the past year and a half, but I have not been down to my goal weight since before my son, Noah, was born and he is 5-years-old!!!
Omron Fitness will be providing their HJ-323U connected pedometer, their new 510W Scale, and later in the challenge the new Strapless Heart Rate Monitor (HR-5ooU), for the 25 bloggers. I am actually really excited to receive these products. They will definitely help me stay on track for my weight loss goals. The pedometer and strapless heart rate monitor sync up with the Omron Fitness Dashboard to help track our numbers. The challenge will officially start on January 13th and will end on February 10th. Right before my 30th birthday on the 15th. I am trying to lose as much weight as possible before then so I am starting today and will continue on with the challenge next week. I am hoping to be down 20 lbs by my 30th birthday, but will continue using the pedometer, awesome scale, and the strapless heart rate monitor long after the challenge because I really want to lose about 70-80 lbs! Man that seems like so much! But I am really trying now. Before I never really committed to eating right and exercising which, of course, is why I weigh this much in the first place, but now it is definitely time to shed this weight.
The person who loses the most weight and participates a lot will win $500 and 2nd and 3rd place will each receive $250. So there is even more incentive to work hard at this. For my 10-year anniversay present I am getting a season pass to Sundance and I got some new snowboard clothes since I can’t fit into the ones I own, sadly. These clothes are so big that after I shrink back out of them, Rob can use them 🙂 At least that….
So wish me luck on my weight loss journey. You know I am going to need it with a soda-drinking husband like Rob ;P
