December 30, 2012
My POA for the new year but first a look of ONE year to compare.
Weight Down 4 lbs
Neck down 1”
Waist down 8”
Hips down 2”
Thigh down 3.5”
Arm down 2.5”
LOST A TOTAL OF 17 INCHES THIS YEAR (I am actually down a lot more, but using these areas to compare for now), ONLY 4 LBS GONE THIS YEAR. I STILL HAVE LOST A TOTAL OF 80 LBS, SO WILL NOT LOSE SIGHT OF THAT.
Size 10/12 Medium
BMR of 1566.8 down 22.1
Body Fat % of 27.1% down 0.45%
I am happy that I am thinning, but I really want to see the scale move. This year I am still focusing on inches, but more the scale too.
These are my goals, My commitments. I am committed!
I have committed to 5 days a week of fitness.
- Sunday & Tuesday Kickboxing
- Monday Spin & Strength
- Saturday ST and cardio
- Wednesday Zumba
SHORT TERM GOAL
To be accomplished starting as of now.
Eat clean. Re-evaluate my food choices and weed out non-Primal foods. Have been choosing sweets and flour items over the holidays and I feel awful. It is from the food choices I have been making. Too much processed and not enough natural.
Not a choice of have to, I Need to eat clean again.
Long Term Goal
I have 43 lbs to lose to goal. I don’t know if this is realistic or not, its the doctors number not mine. Size wise I don’t know what this would bring me down to a 4? 6? Is this me? I don’t know. But I am going to try.
So my long term goal is to move that scale.
I am on the right track as my inches show.
I CAN DO THIS. I AM DOING THIS. I WILL SUCCEED.

The Plan works as well as you do...
My previous blog was about initiating a plan to cope with the holidays. I have to say it worked pretty darn good for the most part.
Of course it is only as good as the person working it and I do have my moments.
Like chocolates, not on Christmas Eve, not on Christmas day...
...my downfall was boxing day!
It was a day of rest and relaxation; putting away gifts and goodies.
Unfortunately we had received chocolates as gifts.
I don't buy, I don't have them on my home.
Well, because of the mindless eating.
One begets two...
Two begets three...
...You get the picture.
Well, they are gone! They are out of here!
I hope it isn't too little too late, but they are gone.
Thank you, thank goodness.
Now I have a plan and am putting that into place.
I have enrolled in 2 classes per week of Kickboxing (Sunday & Tuesday).
I have committed to a Spin & Strength class on Monday evenings.
I have committed to a Zumba class on Wednesdays.
I am committed to working out with a friend on Saturdays.
That is a commitment of 5 days of exercise.
I am sure I can do it.
I am sure I can make it work and make my body work, perhaps even more than the plan.
Hugs and love,

It is that time of year for most of us who celebrate Christmas, and for those who celebrate Chanukah, Solstice or just enjoy being with family/friends for the holidays.
Yes that time of socializing with the pitfalls of possible self indulgence.
Possible? Oh yeah...
It is so easy to fall into the YO YO! trap while celebrating your HO HO!
What am I talking about? Well the scale and your weight becomes your yo yo, rising and falling with the choices you make.
Does this make me and you happy to see? No unless it is on the downward side of our weight, then I am very jolly indeed!
But how do we avoid the pitfalls of this holiday season? How do we remain Jolly and retain our HO HO! while losing that YO YO?
That is a tough one, but in a sense not so tough at all.
WE need to PLAN AND STICK WITH OUR PLAN.
That doesn't mean we have to deny ourselves everything. If you are dreaming of shortbread and sugar cookies; plum pudding is dancing in your head; your drooling over the thought of Turkey dinner and all that goes with it.
PLAN to have A cookie.
PLAN to have A small piece of plum pudding.
PLAN to have this or that.
PLAN to have what it is you really really want.
And most importantly --
STICK WITH YOUR PLAN!
I PLAN to have the turkey, salad, vegetables those are all a go and fit into my plan anyways.
I PLAN to have a piece of pie or a piece of plum pudding. These are not normally in my plan, but by adjusting my food tracker that day I will indulge GUILT FREE.
I Probably won't have wine or alcohol. WHY? Because I CHOOSE NOT TO, as it DOES NOT FIT INTO MY PLAN.
You may make your PLAN SPECIFIC TO YOUR GOALS.
Now this is my plan for Christmas Day, what happens if we go visiting?
I USE THE SAME PLAN!!
Keep it simple. If you plan to indulge make room for it in your daily calorie count.
I will cut back on my Breakfast, lunch and snacks so that I have more wiggle room at Dinner if this is where my PLAN needs to come into play.
It is also easier to bounce back from a day or two of indulgence than it is from a week or more.
I will also PLAN TO EXERCISE to combat this extra intake.
Walk, jog, stretch, strength...whatever you enjoy as long as YOU MOVE.
Yep...MOVE IT TO LOSE IT.
I am off to run now, followed by cleaning my house and walking the dog.
I hope you are PLANNING AND MOVING.
Together we can Plan and beat the YO YO! and make the HO HO! our focus.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Hi My Friends.
Just finished a painting and am very happy with it.
Not quite sure what to call it...
I am thinking 'Torn'...
**since I posted I have decided to go with Merrikate's suggestion of 'TORN BEAUTY'. I was partial to torn anyhow because of the torn wing and it is a beauty. Thank you all my dear spark friends.
