I lost 2 quarters..........

Friday, June 01, 2007

Its okay I am not looking for them. LOL, I am now working on my third quarter. I have broken it up into a strategy. Take it a quarter at a time. Then its not so overwhelming. just to think of my two quarters being lost is wonderful. I just hope no one else finds them.

I saw a motto yesterday that kind of stuck to me. I cannot remember exactly what it said but it pertained to us taking advantage of the ability to change today because we dont know if we will still have the same opportunity tomorrow. I think this is so crucial because you never know what will happen, changes need to be effective immediately. I used to procrastinate and say on the first of the month, monday, tomorrow or when I get to such and such a point in my life, then I will make the changes. I am not saying that everything has to be boom, fall right into place right now, but start out small and work your way up to work your weight down.

That is how you work it. Find something that makes sense to you and and use it as your motivation. I go 5 pounds at a time as my motivator. I have a new goal every 5 pounds. Good going.

June Plan!!!

Thursday, May 31, 2007

I am going to have to try to drink 14 cups of water a day. I say Try because working with children doesn't always allow me to go to the potty repeatedly. I know I will be able to get the water in on the weekends without any problems at all, but the weekdays, I will have to aim for my water after hours.

Eat 5 fruits and veggies a day. I really want to get these in for fiber, and vitamins. I will eat one salad a day. That is an easy way to get in my veggies. I am limiting my meat intake.

I vow to take off one day a week from exercise a week. That is hard for me. However 3 days a week I plan to work out 1.5 hours and on 2 days I will do my regular 60 minute sessions and then 1 day a 30 minute session. I am not killing myself, just working my body baby. Strength train M/W/F.

I am aiming for another 9lbs loss this month. We will see. I think with the sun out like it is, hot it will be easier to lose. I am trying to go without food after 7pm, however if I still have any calories left and I am truly hungry, I will grab an apple. I think that will be better than anything else. First drink water though.

Time is of the essence

Wednesday, May 30, 2007

A standard statement in a contract which ensures that all dates and times of day noted in the contract are important and cannot be ignored by any of the parties without the consent of the others except in breach of the contract.


I , Red Velvet, of sound mind and body, from here on out, agree to do my best in reaching my goal weight of 181. I agree to exercise, eat right, drink my water, and count my calories. I agree that once I have reached my goal weight all that I have learned does not go out of the ears and leave me big headed. I agree that this is a lifetime change and that I therefore must work on this daily and maintain my weight. I vow to help others along in their journey, by encouragement and sharing my story with them. I vow to never forget that this journey was not easy, that there will be times when the road gets tough and that encouragement is very essential in the accomplishments of others. I vow to be here on out the best that I can be and to reach my goal.

* Goals may be lowered at any time, however never highered over 181, because that would be a breach of contract.*

June is around the corner!!!

Wednesday, May 30, 2007

My June plans are coming along fine, I will post them up tomorrow. I know what I want to do and where I want to go, its just a matter of planning and going the extra mile and dedication to get there. I am so glad that I am sticking to this. I am working it into my work schedule right now. I was out of work for awhile and I had a concern that work and workingout would conflict, however they aren't. I am going with the mindset, of putting myself first when it comes to my health, because if I am not healthy what good am I to myself or anyone else? I am sometimes amazed that I am still doing what I need to do to get this weight off. I remember trying many times but I just kept giving up, putting my weight at a bigger deficit. That was an expensive lesson to learn. Oh well the past is the past and right now I am looking at my future and living the present.
