Happy New Year, Happy New You everyone.
Well today is January 1, 2011, I have taken some before photos like I said I would and here they are. A little scary for me, but I know what I need to do, post them so I can be held accountable for whipping myself back into shape. I will post new photos at the beginning of each month, or before depending on my progress. I am so excited to get started with my new workout and eating habits that I know I can do it.
My Measurements this morning were as follows:
Weight 129. 7 (130)
Upper Arm 13
Push ups in 1 min 30
Crunches in 1 min 50 (if I can do that many in 1 minute there is no reason for my stomach to look the way it does :).
Well here goes:
My goal is to lose 14. 7 lbs by April 10 (my 36th birthday) and keep it off.
Tone and tighten my thighs
Get my biceps back ( I had nice biceps up until about 3 years ago, always received compliments about them)
Not sure what my waist size should be, but I currently wear a size 11 pants would love to back to at least a 7/8 size.
Not sure if I can lose the hips, they run in my family, but I am going to workout hard and hopefully I will tone up all over, hips included.
We are going on a family vacation in June and I want to be able to wear a 2 piece swimsuit (never have), by the pool and not feel like I need to hide myself with a cover up!
These are my goals and I am sticking to them.

Today was a good day! No work today because the girls had there last game of the Tournament. They took home the 3rd place trophy, very proud of those girls they have worked so hard with being on Christmas break and practicing daily like nobodies business they just don't know how proud I am of them. Well if they watch the videos I have recorded they will know. I have a really sore throat from cheering them on. Nothing a little tea and lemon can't help.
I did my Costco thing today and luckily I only bought what I needed, no extras just the things on the list. My daughter went with me for help. We spent the afternoon together shopping. She bought a few t-shirts from Old navy (7.50 sale). We went over to Barnes and Nobles also, I ended buying "The Spark" it was on sale (20% off), I have membership with them so it was another 10% on top of that the cashier was feeling jolly and gave me the 25% off coupon although I did not have one with me. I ended up getting the book for 9.56, what a deal.
I am really excited about the New Year. I plan to take really good care of my body and eat healthy. I plan to take the family along on this ride with me so that way the kids will learn how and what to feed there bodies as they get older. I don't want them to struggle with the same issues that I have struggled with for so long. Not really a New Year's Resolution, but it is time for me to take charge and do what I know I need to do for me and that is exactly what I am going to do.
Well I hope everyone has a wonderful evening. I will be sparking for a little bit longer to catch up since I have not been on today, then I am going to defend my title in Hula Hoop on the Wii with my daughter, hopefully my son will join us when we play bowling. He thinks Hula Hoop is for girls, but it is good for your thighs. I know because I think my are going to catch on fire sometimes when we play.
Happy Thursday everyone!
