Here I go again

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

I just looked at my goal from June of last year and it looks about the same as it does for this year. Instead of beating myself up for not making my goals I'm going to be grateful that I didn't change for the worse. I'm still in about the same place I was last year. Great news since this means I will rock once I get to maintenance mode! I have made strides. I'm getting better and meal planning, gardening, and upping the intensity of my workouts. I just haven't gotten very far with the stress and boredom eating/snacking. Going to make that my focus and see where that leads me.


Goals for the 2nd half of the year!!

Friday, June 14, 2013

Ok, time to get with the program and take this weight off! I've done a lot of positive things to get healthy, but need to step it up. I want to wear some of my skinny clothes again and dial down the knee pain. Here are my new goals.

1. Reach a goal weight of 135 by the end of the year. (appox 35 lbs).
2. Step up my workout intensity so I'm burning more calories.
3. Get back in my size 8/10 clothes.
4. Improve my meal planning including portion control so I'm taking in less calories
5. Make sure if I snack at night it's healthy and I'm truely hungry
6. Since I'm watching too many food documentaries on Netflix start educating my self so I can eat meatless about 80% of the time and the rest of the time make sure I know the source my meat is coming from. I want to make sure I am still able to balance my protien and carb intake.

    Good ideas, and I should borrow some of yours for myself! It never USED to be so hard for me to lose weight, not back in my teens, for sure! But now...sigh.

I completed a morning workout!

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

When I lost weight about 5 years ago a lot of it had to do with getting up and some ungodly hour and doing my pilates dvd. Add a house, dog, and boyfriend and it gets a little hard to talk myself into the early mornings. Well I managed to get myself up at 5:30 and complete a 30 minute yoga dvd. I have to say I had a lot of energy and felt great today. I'm not going to get too crazy after one day, but it's a start. I'll see how it's going in the next couple weeks after I'm not coming off 11 days of vacation sleep ins.

    I need to do this myself. You're right, it works. I keep telling myself to do it, and then never set the alarm. My knee is messed up from falling on the ice last night, but as soon as I can do a decent workout, I will get up.

Keep it up, if you know your body likes it, that should help.
Good luck and great job on today!

New Years

Monday, December 31, 2012

Why not start out the new year with my first blog entry. Here are my resolutions.

1. Continue to drink 8 glasses of water a day.
2. Find an excercise that my daughter likes to do and is willing to do with me. Running was a bust but yoga has potential if I keep jillian michaels out of it.
3. Try morning workouts.
4. Continue my healthy eating habits while getting better at portion control and snacking so I can lose weight too.
5. Conquer healthy eating at my stepmoms. She is Paula Dean on crack with 20 snacks sitting out at any given time so this ones a biggee.
