OK enough is enough! Friday we got a foot of snow. Today the weatherman said 5 inches. We are up to 8 and it's still snowing. We have at least 20 inches so far. Plus what we already had on the ground. We have a 6 foot fence in the yard I know these pics don't do it justice but you get the idea.
Where to begin. For starters I want to share all my happiness with you! It's the beginning of a new year! Tomorrow and Friday start my two new challenges. I am on two new teams, the Winter 5% challenge- The Awesome A Team & BLC24- The Fuchsia Beauties INC. (FBI). My teammates seem so friendly and supportive. I have very good feeling about my two new teams. Starting out a challenge with your enthusiasm soaring is a great plus for success! I read on someone's post recently, "SUCCESS IS A CHOICE." Those four little words are going to be my Mantra for the next 12 weeks. By making the right choices each day no matter how trivial they seem I will meet my goals at the end of each challenge. The last time I weighed myself I was 230 lbs. It will be a little intimidating getting on that scale tomorrow. I am taking all my fears, putting them in a suitcase & burying them. Never to be unpacked again! I am making a promise to myself. I will do whatever has to be done to succeed! I will be posting on a regular basis to keep me accountable.
I wish all my other teammates success in meeting their goals!
I did fairly well yesterday. Down 3 lbs. It is probably water loss. I had one problem with snacking. I got carried away with snacking because I was eating right out of the bag. Big mistake! I am going to pre-measure my snacks & put them in snack bags. That should solve the problem! Other wise I ate fairly healthy yesterday!
Yesterday was 1st day back on track after my long hiatus. I did well. I think I was within my calorie range. It's hard to tell because I had a bowl of home made ham & bean soup. I have no idea how many calories it contained. It's funny how calories can add up if your are not extremely careful. I think for the 1st week or two I will blog everyday to keep myself accountable. The BLC 24 & the 5% winter challenge will be starting by the end of this month. When they start this will help me with my accountability. I am so excited to see what teams I will be on. I really enjoy these two challenges. Signing off for now. Will check in tomorrow!
