Water Water Water!!! 4 day streak

Saturday, February 26, 2011

So I am now on my 4th day of no sodas/caffeine! I have had tons of lemon water everyday! I started this because it really hit me the other day that all I had to drink for the day was like 30oz of DIET COKE and maybe 5oz of WATER!! I usually do get more water intake then that but not much. So I decided my challenge is a week without any soda/juices/caffeine! I have done well and do not even miss the diet coke! I have already set my next goal for March and that is continuing my streak! Wish me luck on this challenge of mine!! Hope all is well!

    Simply, I just add lemons/lemon juice to my water bottle everytime I fill it up. I have not experienced any cramping and now I crave the lemon in my water! I recommend it for sure!!:)

  I've heard about the lemon water thing before, how exactly do you prep it and are there any cramping effects? Thats what i've heard that for the first day or so you cramp something awful. Please tell me how it has been for you emoticon

January-February Goals

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

I have put a few goals in my head that I would like to accomplish in January and February as far as health.

The remainder of this month my main focus is on getting my diet right. I hear so much that diet is most important then exercise when it comes to achieving weight loss. Although I do believe exercise is very important and effective. I so far have been eating much better than before. I used to eat fast food almost every day of the week. There would be times where I got off work at 11pm and stop at wendys or burger king and get food. I usually only bought off the dollar menu but it was still very unhealthy. I just craved it every night...I don't know why I even let myself do that. I haven't had fast food except for subway in 2wks!! I have ate out at 2 restaurants and I didn't do horrible but could have done better. I love that I don't even think about fast food it just seems so easy to not pull up to the drive thru and order french fries and a cheeseburger. I love it!! I have been doing really good at not eating past 7ish...sometimes its hard because I am working and you never know when you will eat. I want to maintain that goal...forever. In February my biggest issue will be exercise. I will be off of my right foot for awhile and am not sure what I can do during my recovery. I hope I can still use my elliptical...

Has anybody ever had a Osteotomy done( cutting the metatarsal bone) I have a mild bunion on my left and right feet and am having surgery to remove the right one first. I hear it's not too bad but the swelling is horrible. I will take atleast 2 months for the swelling to go down. Atleast that is what I have been seeing on the internet. I have done alot of research on it. So while I am going to be couch bound for atleast a wk I will be very strict on my diet. As long as I keep healthy food in the cabinets I should be fine.

It has been 2 weeks since starting my healthy lifestyle and I am still going. I usually give up right about now but I'm not. I can't and wont be considered an OBESE person. It sickens me. I want to be healthy and active. I believe I will look HOT once I drop this weight and gain muscle. I was thinking last night....that I might want to be a fitness/figure model. I've seen so many beautiful women on Spark that were like me than they transformed their bodies to be a fitness/figure model. I wonder if I can do it.....What steps should I take..Should I wait for the lbs to fall of first then really try or do it now? Not sure what to do.


Well I have to run to the bank and take care of some financial issues!!URG!

Bye Bye Sparkies! emoticon

    Hello -
I have a friend that has had that surgery on both feet (not at the same time :P ) I know the swelling was bad, but she felt soooo much better after it was done. Good Luck with that. And way to take care of yourself! A lot of people put off surgeries like that.

Its a great idea to eat well while you are unable to exercise. It sounds like you have a great plan in place!

Keep it up!
