Time to start the TBT!!

Well, it's about time I started my Total Body Transformation! 
All of the other derby girls are doing it, so why not me?  :) 

Basically, I'm just sick of having that bit of flab still hanging around that's been there since....oh, gosh... 2 summers ago?  Ugh!  Unacceptable!  

So here are my goals (in no particular order): 
1.) To look damn good in my bikini again.  Damn good. 

2.) To drop 20 pounds.  I'm not sure how much I weigh at the moment, but that seems like a good round number, and right about where I need to be.  (I'll weigh myself this weekend before I start!) 

3.) To become a threat as a jammer.  Right now, my endurance and strength is nowhere near what it needs to be in order to be a jammer.  Although I love blocking, I would also love to jam - and be good at it! 

4.) To get my confidence back.  Sure, I know this will come as I progress - but I'm sick of putting things on that are in my closet and saying, "nope, shows my pooch.  nope, doesn't hide my butt."  I want to feel good everytime I get dressed in the morning! 

5.) To be able to run the full length around Wash Park without stopping to walk!  

The biggest thing to me right now is to really stick to it, and not make any more excuses.  I've been doing that for WAY too long, and really kidding myself about where I am and where I want to be.  I love my body and my figure, but it has come time to take it to the next level.  I have done it once, and by golly, I WILL do it again! 


  1. Beth, I think we have similar body types! I'm 5'6" too and started getting serious about getting into some shape in December last year when I weight 155. (That's my heaviest weight, which I was at when I went into my last semester of college, but somehow managed to get down to 130 after noticing how heavy I'd gotten and running & finding roller derby.)
    I'm not doing TBT, but have lost around 10 lbs. since then just from working out a little bit more and paying a little more attention to how much I eat.
    I really like your goals. I definitely think you can do it! And, you should try running with Whipity at Wash Park. She'll make you go around 2 times and she'll let you stop and walk, but not for long;)

  2. That's awesome!! I definitely think we have very similar body types. Good for you for losing the weight! Yah, the working out is the most difficult thing for me, but I find that when I can make it happen, it makes a HUGE difference. I'm hoping this will give me the motivation I need. And good call about Wash Park too!! I definitely need to run with people who will push me! :)
