Time to kick it into full gear!

Sunday, August 26, 2012

I'm going to use the next 10 days to prepare myself for being on track! So that Wednesday morning the 5th I will be 100% ready to go.

Here's my plan:

Go from 205-129 in 38 weeks

I'm going to do this by drinking 14-8 Ounce glasses of water everyday
I'm going to walk 5 Miles a day ( I'm planning to walk 2.5 in the morning and 2.5 in the evening ...hopefully this will keep me from eating bad.)
I'm going to do my official weigh in's every Saturday Morning and I'm going to post monthly pics of my progress
I'm going to keep my calories between 1200-1550

The only thing I am still battling in my head is that on Saturday nights I like to come home from work, hang out, have drinks and not worry about what I stuff in my mouth...and I'm afraid that I will undo my weight loss progress if I do that but, if I don't I can wind down from all my stress =(

For the last 2.5 years I have tried to lose weight slow so I could figure out how to maintain it but, now I'm ready to be at my goal...I really want to be there by the end of next May....I know I will have to work at it for the rest of my life but, I want to reach it by It's time to put my Butt in high gear and get going. I've lost 51 pounds in the last 2.5 years and kept of 34 of them so I know if I kept it up for another 5-7 years I could get there eventually. =)

It's time to get into that all mentality and get it done!


Ready to Go!

Sunday, July 15, 2012

Well, I thought I was going to wait until the beginning of September to get back on track in full swing ( I havent really stopped I've just been doing what I have too in order to maintian ...I'm ready to be in weight loss mode again )but, my body and mind has been telling me for a few days now it doesn't want to wait it is ready to go now! So I've decided to do a 30 day streak with food and exercise.

In 30 days I am headed for Missouri to Camp Lenard wood to see my husbands son graduate from Boot Camp when I get back I will have a week or 2 until my work contest starts back up (I'm going to win this time) emoticon.

Today I am making myself a food and exercise schedule to help me stay on track.

    I also do a food and exercise chart. I love it, it makes it so much easier not to talk myself out of exercising, and it makes eating so much easier when you know exactly what you are going to eat. Good luck and I know you will kick butt this time!!

Things I've learned

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Even though I still struggle with my eating / exercise habits on a daily basis I have noticed that my all or no mentality is starting get a little better. I used to think that if I ate bad in the morning I might as well eat bad all day. Or if I knew that I was planning to eat something bad for dinner I would just eat crappy all morning too. And it didnt stop there if i ate bad on Monday I would then eat bad the entire week instead of starting fresh the next day. I have finally realized that 24 hours does not start at 12am and end at 12am the next day and that each week doesnt have to start with Sunday and end with Saturday.

So even though I am far from my goal .. being able to eat a bad meal and then not eat bad the rest of the day or miss a workout and be able to start the next day instead of the next week I feel that is a HUGE success for me! And important to my future maintenance.


Now if I could just figure out how to stop medicating with food for Anxiety and Stress?

    Loved this blog! I can see myself! I also have a all or nothing mentality. That is why I never reached my goal. I've visited 230ville 3 times. Started a fall challenge & it's a new start for me. It's my choice wheather I will lose the weight or not. This time I'm making the right choices. Loved that line, "stop medicating with food for stress" which I also do which got me into a lot of trouble. Wish you sucess! emoticon emoticon Linda
