Thursday, October 18, 2012

So I'm not tracking or counting my calories yet...I'm just making smarter choices and eating smaller portions ..doing my exercise and drinking my water.

I'm feeling good!

  Kudoos and congrats to you . . . that is mighty sane and can be good way to get the ball rolling.

I dropped 12-15 pounds earlier this year doing exactly the same . . . except I had NOT at that time plugged into an exercise / conditioning program!

What ever works for you, is the program for you .

I need to add some goals in here to keep me on track!

Short Term:

This Friday night....My daughters baptism ...I know I cant lose a lot by then but, at least I will feel good.

November 16th - 10 years ago my husband asked me to marry him...I have a secret date planned at the Melting Pot where he asked me. =)

March / April - Our daughter is turning 21 .. we are taking her to Vegas

May - Our 10 year anniversary

Long Term:

June - Our son is graduating from High School - In Iowa
( I would love to look HOT that day )

Not sure exactly when yet but, I'm thinking October 2013 - Our 10 year anniversary cruise to the Virgin Islands.

I am shooting for 2 pounds a week! Goal 129.0 Pounds

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!!
