My Plan for August

Monday, August 06, 2012

emoticon Since starting Weight Watchers I have lost 7 lbs in 2 weeks!! I hope to lose at least 0.5 -1 lb a week. If I stay consistent enough I should be able to get to my goal weight by the end of January so I think I should just say that by my 26th birthday (Feb 10, 2013) I would like to be at my goal weight of 145 lbs. Then from that point on I will have to continue to be consistent and maintain my weight for my wedding on October 12, 2013 and hopefully by then I will finally be able to maintain my healthy lifestyle change.

emoticon I absolutely hate grocery shopping and ever since I've joined WW it seems like I've been going every few days. I'm usually going just to get more fresh fruits and veggies but I still hate it lol I know I have to do it though so looks like I just gotta suck it up and deal with it. I saw a lasagna zuchini I want to try and make so I need to get all the ingredients for that. I have to go on Pinterest and find some recipes (which there are plenty of) and then write down all the ingredients needed and get them at the store so I can actually make the food. I had my tuna peppers again for dinner last night....soooo good :]

emoticon Today starts the day of a challenge I'mdoing on facebook with Tasha's (TASHISNOQUIITER) coworkers. The girl that put the challenge together is a representative for Beach Body (Turbo Jam, Insanity, P90x, the shakes, etc) and she put this 30 day challenge together. I remember doing a FB challenge like this before and I actually lost 5 lbs within that 30 days so I figured what better way to try and get me back into my work out routine. I really need to make my work out calendar for the month so I'll do that this evening or tomorrow morning. So maybe if I keep up with my eating and work out I'll actually start to lose more and tone up!!

emoticon This Wednesday I hope to go to a possible venue site with my best friends (the bridesmaids) so cross your fingers for me!! My friend from work is getting married the end of August and she told me to swing my her venue the week of her wedding because its a privately owned area and they dont advertise it. I've seen pictures and it's beautiful there. I'll just have to see if it's cheaper cause I'd have to rent the table and chairs for that place. I really want to try on wedding dresses too so we'll see when I actually want to go do that.

emoticon School is about to start back up!! My daughter starts 3rd grade in 2 weeks (so hard to believe) and then I start school back up in 3 weeks. I'm so NOT ready to go back but the classes I'm taking aren't as hard core as my nursing classes. I'll get a little break but not much. And then hopefully January 2013 I'll be back in the nursing program and finish up my last semester of nursing school AGAIN and FINALLY graduate and get my big girl job.

emoticon Hope everyone has a great month and keep up the great work!! WE CAN DO THIS!!!!

WW Weigh In #1

Monday, July 30, 2012

Today was my first weigh in and I'm down 5.4 lbs! The bestie is down 7!! WOOT WOOT!! GO US GO!! I did do good eating wise this week besides yesterday. My soon to be father in law had a company picnic...I actually ate good there. I just kept eating watermelon lol. But then we had a family picnic pool party and thats where I went down hill. I was doing good until I saw all of the desserts and I have a HUGE sweet tooth. I wanted to go back for seconds but I was at that satisfied point and I was like, "No, Ashley, you're satisified. You don't need to eat anymore, you had your share. Member you're trying to lose weight." So, I made myself drink water...lots of it lol After the party I made myself go for a walk though. I need to get back into running and Zumba. I need to look up some WW receipes to switch my meals up before I start getting bored with the same stuff. Hope everyone has a great week :]

this was breakfast the other morning :]

Preparing Meals

Friday, July 27, 2012

I learned very quickly that planning meals ahead of time is going to help me out a lot with my success in losing weight. I knew this before but I guess it didn't sink in as much as it has now since I joined Weight Watchers. When I didn't have a meal plan I kinda freaked and I was worried about my points. So to avoid me from freaking out, I have been preparing meals as far in advance as I can. Just gotta stay consistent with my system!!

*premade salads that are easy to grab so i dont make the excuse that it takes too long to make a salad hahaha*

*Grace has a ton of amazing recipes!!*

And I got a little crafty and turned my old shirts into new workout tanks, thanks to Pinterest :]

Starting Weight Watchers

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

emoticon The bestie (TASHISNOQUITTER) and I started Weight Watchers tonight. I weighed in at 175.5 lb. That is the most I have weighed in my life! I didn't even weigh this much when I was pregnant...OMG!! Weight Watchers seems easy enough...I just need to stay dedicated and plan things ahead of time. I'm already in a pickle though because I have no food in the fridge. So tonight I need to figure out my meals for tomorrow and then actually go grocery shopping after work and stock my fridge with fruits and veggies!! I'm hoping that getting into this new eating habit will get me back into my routine of working out too. I gotta take this one day at a time. I WILL DO THIS!!!!

emoticon Anyway...planning for a wedding has become a nightmare for me!! I have been googling EVERYWHERE for a venue and its either wayyyy out of my price range, not up to my standards, or the future hubby has something to complain about it. I have almost gotten to the point where I say, "Eff it" and then just go have a small ceremony on my grandma's farm in PA (which was an idea at first anyway) or elope somewhere but come to find out those options are just as expensive. I have lots of little stuff figured out though. I have someone to make my cake, do hair and makeup, photographer, DJ, and a future family member works at a bridal shop and will give me a discount on my dress. My bridesmaids have already agreed to help me with the DIY stuff and my parents are paying for food. I think when I find a venue itll make planning a little easier (at least I friggin hope so). Wish me luck!!

    I hope you'll like weight watchers. I know several people who have done really well with them. Planning ahead is so hard at first, but during the week when you have all your food at hand it feels so good!

I hope you're able to find some place everyone can agree on! I cant even imagine the difficulty involved..

  I love the idea of your grandma's farm as I've attended a wedding in the mother's living room and they did it up so nicely. We had the reception in the dinning rom which she saved a ton of money. I'm really excited for you and also have never weighted this much in my life so I'm feeling that as well. I've heard, when you do it right and stay committed, it really works! WW is the best plan as you don't have to buy particular food, can eat out and adjust it without giving up all of the foods you enjoy as it's a life style change. Congratulations on your wedding and keep up the good work! You're almost there! emoticon emoticon emoticon
