A lil ways into this...

Monday, June 22, 2009

And I'm doing alright but not great. I've slipped on getting in my water like I should, I haven't been exercising as much as I'd like but I think that's because I'm not having fun, and I don't always stick to the meal plan but when I make substitutions they're good ones!

I've had a rough week with travelling, interviews and some other issues that came up but I'm doing alright. I just need to make sure I don't indulge myself to battle my emotions right now. I'm trying to decide which job I want and where to start my career. It's no small decision but the comforting fact is that I can't really make a bad decision. I just have to choose.

Hopefully tonight's cardio / heavy cleaning at home will be a good release for me both physically and emotionally and I can get things back in order to stick with what I started. One can only hope, right? I'm working towards it but my goal still seems distant.

I did find a new quote though that I am going to keep close to me:
"Excellence is the result of caring more than others think wise, risking more than others think safe, dreaming more than others think practical, and expecting more than others think possible."

I'm driving for excellence...

  I like your quote. As I think we should push ourselves to keep doing better. It all has to do with our choices every day.
I am sure that you will succeed in all your goals, as you have good motivation and are very determined.
Thanks for inspiring me too.

Still on track :-)

Tuesday, June 02, 2009

Day 3 and I'm doing great! I've staying in my targets both work days and I'm doing what I need to do to stay on track. I was worried a little because I came home pretty hungry and I ate a couple cookies and a small piece of pizza but it turns out I had more than enough calories, carbs and fat left in my day to handle it! Still came in under my fat count! Yay! Totally swapped cardio for house work thanks to my migraine but it's all good.

On a side note, I was really feeling a glass of wine thanks to some crazy stuff at work today so I poured myself half a glass and then - taking a hint from my daddy - i poured in some soda water. The flavor of the wine is still there, I get a water serving (bonus) and it dilutes some of the calories and carbs of the wine. Good stuff. emoticon

  


Day 1...note to self

Sunday, May 31, 2009

So next time I start focusing on a diet plan I'm going to make sure that day 1 isn't a pizza party for my soccer team. Oops. I've been good the rest of the day so I'm not going to beat myself up for it but this kinda sucks. emoticon Oh well...I've got my groceries to get back on track the rest of the day and tomorrow. Tomorrow also starts the fitness part of the plan so hopefully that goes better than the diet today. I know I can do this!

  


One last free day...

Saturday, May 30, 2009

Today's the last day before I get down and dirty with the fitness / nutrition plan. I coached my Kindergarten girls' soccer team through their last game of the season today and we finished undefeated - so proud of them. I had such a blast coaching... emoticon but now it's time for me to get my act together. Today I'm letting myself have a free day...comfort foods and all. The hard work begins tomorrow! Not sure I'm ready but I know I want this! 150...magic number...150

  I just had what you call a free day. Not good, as I am in the middle of my new healthy plan. I don't really know what happened today, but made many poor choices. Tomorrow (Sun) is the start of another week. Your note here has inspired me again.

Thanks,
Annie

T-minus...the weekend

Friday, May 29, 2009

So here's the start...well sort of. I'll be starting my program on Monday...nutrition focus starts on Sunday. I've been out of it exercise wise for a few weeks because I wasn't allowed to work out for a little while...doctor's orders. Having to give up the marathon I was supposed to run and gaining back the weight I was doing such a good job of losing has been a little tough on me so I needed a clean start...so here I am! Follow along, keep me accountable if you want, and hopefully I'll have a much better picture up there at the end of July!
