I’m not sure how much I should share about the Fittest Loser since the Daily Herald should be the first place people find out about most of the news, but I think it’s safe to say that I MADE THE FINAL FIVE!
I could not believe my eyes when I received the e-mail. I immediately flew into my boss’s office and started shrieking. For the rest of the day, it was almost impossible to concentrate on leading conference calls and evaluating the progress of PR initiatives. All I could think was, “12 weeks from now, what will I weigh? How will I feel?!”
Well, that’s not quite ALL I thought. Other items on the list included:
- Oh my goodness. My DAD is going to know what I weigh. My BOSS is going to know what I weigh. My cousins and grandparents and coworkers and THE ENTIRE METROPOLITAN AREA is going to know what I weigh!
- Okay, but who am I kidding? It’s not like they’re going to say, “Wow! Kristen weighs 260 pounds?! I’m shocked. I would swear she was 125 by looking at her svelte figure.”
- Ooh crap, why did I tell them I’d choose Jillian if I made it on the Biggest Loser? Bob is so much nicer. And cuter. And has an adorable accent.
- And, most of all, I AM THE LUCKIEST GIRL IN THE WORLD!
Because on top of this exciting news, I got some more this week. I can now cross one of the items off my 30 Before 30 list: I got promoted!
I look forward to sharing the highs and lows and the blood, sweat and tears over the next 12 weeks. I promise lots of photos, along with tips straight from the trainer!
I am so grateful to both the Daily Herald and Push Fitness for giving me a jumpstart on this journey. I feel so blessed and so ready to do this. Jonathan Swift once said, “May you live all the days of your life!” I am ready to do just that.
