****GOALS FOR 2015 ****** emoticon

This is it ... the year I get this done ... I'm giving myself 12 months to hit my long term goal of entering the "HEALTHY BMI RANGE" ... Thats a total of 36 lbs or 3lbs per month .... completely realistic & doable ... now to just buckle down & get it done!! So that next year, at this time my goal will be to be in MAINTENANCE ... I think I owe it to myself to dedicate 1 year of time to meet some goals: ...

This is it ... the year I get this done ... I'm giving myself 12 months to hit my long term goal of entering the "HEALTHY BMI RANGE" ... Thats a total of 36 lbs or 3lbs per month .... completely realistic & doable ... now to just buckle down & get it done!! So that next year, at this time my goal will be to be in MAINTENANCE ... I think I owe it to myself to dedicate 1 year of time to meet some goals: physically,,spiritually & emotionally .... I'm ready .....

MONTH & WHAT DID I ACCOMPLISH TOWARDS MY GOALS?

JANUARY 2015
~~ 1/7/15 - I'm starting the Advocare 24 Day "All In Challenge" that will take me through the end of Jan. Hoping to hit my short term goal .... I'll update Jan. 31st!! ~~

~~1/31/15~~ Finished the Advocare 24 Day "All In Challenge" My overall goal for the month was a 3lb loss, I did one better with a 4lb loss!! I was hoping for 5lbs because that would allow me to accomplish my Short Term Goal. My weight actually dipped down to that 5lb mark and flirted with me for a day but than back up.. I'm ok with that, for now. I know I can do it, I can see that number and I WILL get there in February! emoticon

My over all stats are:

*Total weight loss = 4lbs
*Total inches lost = 4.75"
*My goal was to have a 85% success rate on the Advocare 24 Day Challenge = I had 83% success rate
*My goal was to avg. 5 cardio/strength workouts per week = I averaged 3.25
*My goal was to get 7 hrs of sleep per night, 85% of the month = I averaged 64% (a work in progress!)
*My goal was to track all my nutrition and find my avg daily calorie deficit = for Jan. my avg daily calorie deficit was "315" ... goal for February is to have a daily avg deficit of 315 and greater....

It also dawned on me that in 24 days I had ZERO pop, alcohol, sugar (with the exception of 2 bites of a cinnamon roll and 1 lindor ball ha ha) , I almost completely cut out unhealthy fats & refined sugar and white flour. During the cleanse phase I had zero dairy, (yes I surprised myself, life can go on without cheese!!) and I had maybe 4 servings of something fried,and I drank almost a gallon of water each and everyday!!....

Not bad for 24 days.. emoticon

bottom line...
I'm feeling better in my own skin....
I can do it,,it was hard but not impossible..... emoticon


FEBRUARY 2015
Here are my stats for Feb:

*Total weight loss= 1lb. for the month( 5lbs since 1/7/15)doesn't seem like much BUT it was the ONE pound that needed to be gone in order to hit my short term goal--I am officially OVERWEIGHT ha ha bye bye Obese BMI!!
*Total inches lost= haven't had a chance to measure yet, but definitely feel a difference!
My goal was to follow my Advocare nutrition with 85% success--I measured 28 days with 81%!!
*My goal was to avg. 5 cardio/strength workouts per week = I averaged 5 workouts per week,,hit my goal !!
*My goal was to get 7 hrs of sleep per night, 85% of the month = I averaged 55% (a work in progress!)
*My goal was to track all my nutrition and find my avg daily calorie deficit = for Jan. my avg daily calorie deficit was "315" ... goal for February is to have a daily avg deficit of 315 and greater....
My avg daily deficit for Feb. was ... 363!! Goal met!!
*I also began tracking my avg. daily calorie intake.. Feb. was 1452.

January= We actually took care of the lil' darlings for a long weekend. A LOT of work ha ha you forget how much is involved in the 24 hour care of little ones,,,life revolves around eating,,,pooping,,sleeping and a little playtime,,,than ya start the whole process over,,and over and over ha ha emoticon But we had such a good time they are such a joy, our relationships are growing closer and I love seeing the world through their eyes,,the learning, excitement and just the wonderment of everything around them! emoticon The upside of being a grammy is you definitely have way more patience and you don't sweat the small stuff,,the downside is your 50 year old body doesn't have the energy like your 20 year old body did!!

Some people bloom late. emoticon Some very late. emoticon And some, very, very late. emoticon

But they all bloom. And the longer it takes, the more spectacular it is.

Quite the deal, huh? emoticon

Dropping by to wish you a fantastic week ahead and a Happy Spring! Hope you enjoy the following Springtime Poem.... emoticon

Spring of Life

When winter days give in to spring
and trees begin to bud
I can see all God handiwork
from the grass to the stars above
The joy and warmth the daylight brings
as the birds sing songs of praise
for they are also happy
for the earth that God hath made
and when the coolness of the evening comes
and the dusk gives way to night
we close our eyes and say dear Lord
thank you for the beauty of life.
