So, I'm turning the BIG 3-0 this year :( Yep....I don't like the sounds of it, but guess there's nothing I can do about it, except stay healthy and youthful. I was thinking about it yesterday, and decided that I'm gonna challenge myself. I want to lose 30lbs by my 30th Birthday (Nov. 8). That's just under 5 lbs a month, so I know that it's definitely attainable!
I weighed right around 210 on Monday, so I want to be down to 180 by my birthday. I know I can do this! I want it soooo bad. I have been around 200 + my entire adult life...so at 180 I would feel like a skinny minny. (Probably not, but I would feel much better about myself).
I know the key to this challenge is to continue exercising and eating healthy. Just good ol hard work.

I know that the key to this weight loss journey is consistency. And I know that I haven't been consistent. I may be good during the week and blow it on the weekend. Or I might be good for a couple days, and then off a couple days. That's no way to win this battle!!
I'm gonna work hard to stay consistent. And you know what? I'm gonna reward myself too. This week I've been on track with my eating and exercise. My goal is to stay on track each day, and track my food on spark.
As far as exercise goes....I'm doing Jillians shred 3 days this week and Zumba 2 days. I may add more, but this is what I'm committing to.
If I can stay on track the entire week- I'm gonna buy myself something. I don't know what yet, but something.
I'm gonna get this stinkin weight off!!!!

I live in a very small town, and the nearest gym is 20 + miles away. I usually work out at our local fire hall that has a fitness center. I've always wanted to take an aerobics class, but it was just too far and expensive and time consuming to drive to a gym. Well....a zumba class just started at the firehall. It's $4 a session, and about a 2 mile drive. I'm really happy about this because I know it will really help me with my exercise. I've got lots to learn (zumba moves), but it was fun!
I'm still struggling to lose the 20 lbs I've gained. I'm pretty much staying the same. Ugh...but, I'm still not giving up!!!

I have failed at blogging my daily accountability and I have many excuses that I won't even go into. But just wanted to let you all know that I did go see my Dr last Wednesday. I had gained 17 lbs since I saw her last June. Now this weight went on in just 2 months. Nov and Dec. So I have an appt to see her again next month.
I am working hard to get these stubborn lbs off. I've been eating healthy for the most part, and staying away from sugars and "bad" carbs. I've been doing Jillian's 30 day shred 3x's a week. I've also been going down to the health center a couple days a week.
Weekends are a KILLER!! I have to try and stick to healthy eating even on the weekend. Last week I had 2 birthday parties so that was hard. We usually go out to eat every Sunday. My goal for the week is to stick to my healthy eating every day and let my meal on Sunday be my "free" meal for the week.
Thanks for listening. Hope you all have a good week.
