Time for a Vaca

Monday, April 09, 2012

It's time to get back on track. NO more excuses. I have to set up goals and to-do lists for myself. It's the only way I feel accomplished and leads to me getting more done. I'm setting up a challenge for myself to get my butt in gear. Tackle some of my room, set up a workout regime and stick to it, and start to cook more often from scratch. I'm going to try to do one recipe each day. I have a couple of days to recollect my thoughts, so the time is NOW. Hellllooo to wiping off the dust on workout DVD's , spring cleaning, and incentives!!

Welcome Back Spring!!

Sunday, March 25, 2012

emoticon It's Springtime at last! The weather's warming up and emoticon swimsuit season is almost upon us! And after emoticon hibernating this winter, it's time to high tail kick it into gear on whipping my butt back into shape! Not only to look good at the beach/poolside, but also eat and feel better. More energy and motivation? Yes please!

emoticon I'm going to try to revamp my wardrobe and organize as well. Why helllooooo spring cleaning!

emoticon I'm also going to try to read more. As much as I do like the reference books, I'm in serious need of a good old fashioned story to curl up with-after exercising that is!

emoticon Cutting back on sweets won't be easy for me, but I have done it before. I'm a sucker for emoticon chocolate! But when I cut back on my sugar intake, I find emoticon fruit and natural sugar tastes AMAZING while artificial sweeteners have a funny aftertaste. I've been drinking tea lately and have discovered a chocolate/vanilla one I plan on giving a try soon! I've joined the Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge from the Challenges page. I also joined the 4 Weeks to a Bathing Suit Body Challenge. It's not going to be easy at first, but with practice, I plan to get back on track! Besides, feeling better overall and having more energy? Who doesn't want that?

emoticon I'm also going to try to blog once a week to try to stay on track, as well as go to SparkPeople once a day to track food and spin that wheel!

New page, new colors, new pic, new quote!
