3 Days to go

Sunday, December 31, 2006

until my one year anniversary...I'm feeling pretty good, but a bit concerned as I have found some old bad habits creeping in. I must stop eating over my self-imposed 100 cal limit for snacks. I've let that get out of control a bit, especially in the evening. I will take control of that starting today. Tomorrow is my last weigh in for the year(my year started on 1/2/06)so I'm hoping to keep up my losing ways.

I have a couple of things I need to post today, so bear with me. First I need to write 5 good things about myself. 1.I'm looking much better 2. I'm happier 3. I'm a great mom 4. I'm a good wife 5. I'm very good at committing to something and getting it done.

Next I must talk about an emotional issue that causes me to eat. Although I thought I was over that, yesterday was proof that it can still happen. Once again this Xmas I've overspent. That always causes a domino affect of us playing catch-up with our bills. So our cell phone bill was behind and they shut them off. I got it all resolved and didn't have to pay the re-connect, but I hate having to do that sort of thing. So, I had way too many whole grain pretzels and fruit during the day. I thought I was hungry, but I now realize it was the stress of the money issue that was the real cause. I am going to have to recognize these things and deal with them in a different way. I can do it.
So there you have my daily post. Hope everyone has a safe and happy new year's eve and I'll see you in 2007.


4 to go

Saturday, December 30, 2006

Four days to go until the 1 year anniversary of my healthy life. I'm so happy to be reaching that milestone! Here is today's quote:
Should you find yourself at a loss, wondering what life is all about and what your purpose is, be thankful. There are those who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity to wonder.
I think it's a very valuable quote and one we should keep in our minds always. It's amazing to think of all the incredible things that I've experienced in 51 years. I am so blessed to have lived the life I have and I will try to remember that every minute of every day!


4 days to go

Friday, December 29, 2006

and I have a new mantra:
You can do it.
Just one more mile.
I feel great.
I look great.
I have a strong, healthy body.
I can do this.
Fit feels good.
One day at a time.
I'm prepared for today's workout.
Thanks to those who posted this on the BL message board, I think it's very helpful and I'll use it daily!
Only 4 days to go to reach my 1 year anniversary. I'm excited, I'm so proud that I've actually stuck with this for that amount of time. I know it's a "forever" thing for me, but the fact that I've made it 1 year is a sign of the strength I have, and that I will be able to sustain this for the rest of my life. I'M NEVER GOING BACK!!!!!


Five days to go!

Thursday, December 28, 2006

I've only got 5 more days to my 1 year anniversary of a new healthy lifestyle. I can't belive I've stuck to it this long. I have never done that before. I am more determined than ever to reach my goal of 145 pounds. I'd like to do that by March, but I think that's a bit unrealistic. Still, I'm using that as my mini-goal, and have until June to reach 145 if I don't get there sooner.

I'm coming up on a major milestone; one year of healthy living, January 2, 2007. I'm so proud of myself because I have never done so well over this amount of time. I made it over the holiday hurdle and continued to lose(only .4lbs)and keep my streak of losing every weigh-in alive. I haven't skipped any weigh-ins(every Monday am)and haven't missed any days at the gym(except Xmas)and I'm still committed 100% to reaching my goal weight of 145lbs. It's funny, but I started this program with the goal of losing weight for my daughter's wedding, but after 8 months into the program, her engagement was broken and the wedding called off, but I never waivered. The reason is, I had realized this was about much more than appearances, this was about LIVING! I hadn't been living and now I knew how much I was missing. So, here's to another year(and the rest of my life)of eating healthy and exercising, and loving life!!!
