So...today ended up being a blog day! haha-you got 3 today. I like splitting them up into topics. The topic of this one is plans....
Every day I am going to do a Jillian Michaels work out when I wake up. Either level 1, 2, 3 of the 30 Day Shred, No More Trouble Zones, or 6 Pack Abs (I'm going to rotate it). If I don't have time for NMTZ, I'll just do a level of the Shred. The point is that I'm getting SOMETHING in right away and hopefully this will take care of me skipping workouts.
I'm also going to try to go through the TurboFire rotation...but if I don't get around to it, it isn't the end of the world. Strength training is most important to me. I need to build me some muscle to melt some of this fat! haha. Speaking of that..I'm like 30.4% body fat. I would like to see myself around 20%...but not if I have to go under 120 pounds to do so. So either 120 pounds or 20% body fat. I don't have a set time frame goal for this...I just have pretty much made no progress for the past 3 months...and I'd like that to change. haha. But setting dates seems to be kinda useless lately. Even though it's recommended. But I'm not following the dates I set...so I'm going to wait until I'm more consistent to set a date.
But in order for that to change...I need to work on my bingeing/eating properly/eating clean....
Although I have been somewhat terrible following through with my eating plans the past few months...I decided I'm going to prepare simple meals beforehand. I'm going to cook up a bunch of skinless chicken at once and cut up all my fruits/vegetables. haha-I think the easiest way for me to do this is to just have a variation of the same meal for lunch and dinner already prepared. So chicken with veggies and fruit..haha. Sounds boring..but I don't mind eating the same thing over and over (as long as I like it! haha). On the other hand, I suck at coming up with a bunch of different menu plans and actually executing them. This way is so much more simple.
Breakfast will probably consist of 2 scoops of my protein shake from work, a banana, and ice/water every morning. It has 20 grams of protein so it fills me up.
Lunch and dinner will just be chicken (or turkey for variation..haha), leafy greens, and fruit.
Snacks will just be random fruits and veggies. I'm going to aim for 1200 calories (if I didn't work out that day because I usually only burn like 1800 then) to 1500 calories (if I am working out that day). I'll tweak it if I need to.

Hey-Chalene Johnson is doing an accountability challenge and I meant to write here and keep up with it. It's been going on for 3 days and lasts 30 days.
Day one was just about prioritizing and our assignment was brainstorming what was important to us. So what is important to me? Helping other people, feeling healthy, working out, having energy, completing the goals I set for myself successfully, my family/friends, my doggy :). Also, what our values are. My values often have to do with people in my life. I want people to remember me as someone who helps them and someone who they can rely on.
Day two asked me what my top 3 priorities are:
1. Family/friends/helping other people, especially through motivating them to do what they want to do for themselves in their own lives. This is on Sparks, at my job, etc.
2. Being healthy/fitness goals, completing the fitness goals I have set for myself and eating healthy so I feel my best and can help other people to the best of my abilities
3. Remaining organized (room, car, planning meals, etc.), this helps me be successful in other areas of my life.
Day three asked me what my top 10 goals are for the year (redone every week, that's why some of them seem kind of unimportant, haha):
1. Reach my goal weight
2. Write a book (or books) to help people lose weight/tips
3. Create a plan to remain organized
4. Pay off my credit card debt from school ($2000)
5. Help at least 5 people (in addition to work to lose weight)
6. Become more assertive/figure out a way to measure this
7. Schedule to see a therapist
8. Organize incoming mail
9. Organize college work so I have it
10. Organize my iTunes library
Push goal: write a book (or books) to help people lose weight with tips
I'm going to follow this every day...she sends out e-mails every night. Figure it'll always give me something to write about at the very least. Plus, I've been meaning to keep up with a to-do list like I did in college :)

SOOO...I'd be lying to say I didn't fall off track and have still been bingeing and eating poorly...
Setting goals and stuff clearly isn't working for me. But I do enjoy blogging, regardless of whether or not I'm making my goals. So my goal for the next 25 days is to write a blog every day. Even if it is just a couple of sentences. Checking in with you guys keeps me accountable.
My goal for 2011 is to run a marathon by the end of it.
Today I weighed in at 147.6. Granted, I have tonnnns of water/sodium bloat from stuffing my face yesterday, haha...probably will be 145ish tomorrow.
I'm not going to set a goal weight this month...but I do want to do these things:
1. Eat cleaner
2. Blog daily
3. Workout everyday, even if it is just for 10 minutes.
4. Drink 8 glasses of water.
Ready. Set. Go!
