Here I am going onto another goal,

Goal #1 is to be 235 on April 30th that is my pre pregnancy weight!!! and goal #2 is to get down to 229 by Memorial day. I am going to go write up my plan for the week and take care of all of this. I really want to reach these goals, and I am going to continue working on these plans daily. I am so motivated because I am losing the weight and keeping it off. I feel so good. I look at the pictures and see the differences in my body. My self esteem is rising and I am building confidence, I can look people in the face once again, and I am kind of coming out of my shell. Plus it feels good to hear people say, "Did you lose some weight?" and then I can say, "Yes."

April Goal........

Sunday, April 01, 2007

I am writing down my goals for April in my journal to help me keep track and reflect on them, I have provided myself with a paper copy as well.

Exercise: 6x's a week 60 minutes cardio; 3x's a week Strength 20mins

Food: Stay within calorie range, eat healthy foods that will fill me up and not take so many calories away.

Vitamins: Remember to take it daily.

Water: Drink 10 glasses daily, the hot weather is going to make it easier and I will need more water with the weather causing me to sweat more.

I am aiming for a 9lbs loss this month. This will help me reach my goal of 235 for April 30th. So we will see.

    Its always a great idea to do this. I often forget. Thank god i signed up with Boot Camp and Fitness Team because Freddie 20 often reminds me to do stuff like set monthly goals and limits for my self. I have foudn that this helps as long as I read over the goal at least twice a week.

I am doing this because...............

Saturday, March 31, 2007

I am losing weight because I want to be healthier, I want to give my daughter a more positive role model, I want her to see that we need to watch what we eat and exercise to take care of our bodies, I want to be fit, I just want to do this for me. I am ready for a change. I turned 27 weighing 281 now I am aiming to turn 28 weighing 215. Wow that is a big turn around. So I will see if I can do this. Actually I know I can, if I have made it this far I can make it even farther. I am going to reach my ultimate goal of 172, but right now I am aiming for 181. then I will take it a notch farther. Here I come.

The end of March is here, I need to focus on April and write up my goals for the new month. I plan on doing that today. There are a few things I need to change and work on. I am glad I am finally losing this weight, sometimes its hard though, because of the time that it takes to lose, seems like you can gain it so fast but to lose it requires a whole lot more work. Oh well, I am going to keep moving on. I am on a mission. It seems like every time I go down, the more excited I get, right now this last week has been tough because TOM came and threw me off. So I need to lose my 4lbs by APril 8th to meet the Easter Challenge goal. Hope to make it. I am going to work my behind off as best as I can during Spring Break.

    Hey Red!!

I think I am going to take a page out of your book and focus more. April is going to be the month that I kick myself into high gear!!

That is a goal I am setting for myself.

Pearls or Pellets

I went to the gym today and a lady who I see on a normal basis, really nice says hello to me, and then she says "You are sticking to it, huh?" I just replied "Yeah" and got on the treadmill and started running. Now the day before there was an older man who told me " You have been coming to the gym a long time now, My wife and I didn't think you were going to stick to it!" How would you take this??? I posted this as a post too, because its truly bothering me but I don't know how to handle it so I am coming to my BBQ's with it.

    Hey Red

Don't take it personally. I wouldn't. I would take it as a sign that they noticed that you exist and it might be their way of supporting you and letting you know someone is watching.

Now that they know you are there to stay, they might have positive and encouraging words.

If not, don't sweat it...just keep doing you!!
