I'm taking on the Shape Up for Charity challenge helping kids in hospitals. My challenge: lose 20 lbs in 26 weeks. Please show your support.
HELP ME WITH A SHOW OF SUPPORT WITH THIS IMPORTANT PERSONAL CHALLENGE
My challenge is to drop 20 pounds in six months with a weigh-in on November 12, 2012 and a weigh-out on May 12, 2013. These weigh-ins will be officially verified by an Open Heart Magic designated third party volunteer.
Please support me with this challenge by donating to help kids in hospitals through the work of Open Heart Magic and help me hit my goal to shape up once and for all. These funds will be used to better the experience for kids in hospital beds through the use of bedside magic. Open Heart Magic has started on their vision of growing to reach from 3,000 to 10,000 kids each year.
THE KICKER – I’M ON THE HOOK FOR $500 AND A HALF MARATHON IF I DON’T SUCCEED
If I do not hit this weight loss goal by May 12th, then I will match your donations to Open Heart Magic dollar for dollar up to $500. If I fail, then I will also sign up and complete a half marathon next summer (the longest I've ever run is 5 miles....so this is a hefty goal!)
WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT
I’ve learned that life can get in the way of fitness goals. I’m committing to this Shape Up for Charity challenge sponsored by Open Heart Magic to bring focus to this important goal and help me knock this out of the park.
I know it won’t be easy which is why I need your help.
WHAT I PLAN TO DO TO REACH THIS GOAL
I’ll be monitoring calories and overall food intake. I’ll be doing a mix of intense exercise, running and walking.
I’ll provide monthly updates on my progress. Please cheer me on as this one goal is a toughie. I'm excited to be a part of this Shape Up Challenge.
Thanks for all of the support!
